    I can't seem to get mod_rewrite to work well for me. I found an alternative PHP solution that I implemented in less than an hour and LOVE it. Link to the technique is below.

    However, I do want to ask the programers here what the downside may be to this technique? I can see none. The ease of use compared to mod_rewrite is amazing. I just implemented this week and will post my results after I get deep spidered again.

    I don't see how that example helps you to not use mod rewrite. Don't you get 404's?

    No 404's, it turns;

    http://www.mysite.com/stock.php/key/someSKU SE see's this URL

    into

    http://www.mysite.com/stock.php?key=someSKU PHP uses this URL behind the scenes and parses data for the browser.

    Works great, and does not have the "?" helping to make it more SE friendly.
