I need to be able to have a section go to a directory to pull off a topic like this http://www.foo.bar/section/ instead of the default http://www.foo.bar.com/index.php?topic=section

Would this will take a bit of work. If you are on *nix use mod_rewrite. If not, I have a url class in cvs in 1.3.x tree in system/classes. That class can turn a url like: http://www.example.com/index.php?topic=foo into http://www.example.com/index.php/foo That class also require *nix as there is a bug in the windows CGI that prevents this from working properly.
The reason people blame things on previous generations is that there's only one other choice.

Good idea on both ends, the problem is, I need Section One/ Section Wto/ ectra to all look different each with different headers, block content ectra/ While sharing a database. The current backend for my site is a scrapped together speghetti code written in c. For blatently obvious reasons I am looking towards moving to php. After conciderible testing of various CMS and portal packages, (PostNuke, PhpNuke, EzPublish,PhpWebsite,Backend,Drupal,DaCode, Siteseed, Scoop, PhpSlash) I like the features,and the enchanced security found in this Application. Its just about everything I want, without the hasle of having to write it myself While I just am starting to learn PHP, I am am looking to turn my website evil-ware.com, into a geeklog site without any change to the UI.

Has anyone looked into the uses of mod_rewrite with geeklog? I'm sure something could be put together, maybe I'll pull another week out of my arse and code it up Smile

Actaully, I have done some research into this. I need to do some extensive testing of this, but for now , this seems to work. RewriteEngine on RewriteLogLevel 0 RewriteCond /www/vs/link/webroot/% !-f RewriteRule ^(.+) /index.php?topic= To me , this seems okay, but eventually i will write a php class /hack to allow for modular topic design.. I.e. Different headers, footers, side boxes, themes, per topic.
