Hello. So I'm a junior web developer at an marketing company (and when I say junior I mean I'm not techincally entirely qualified for the position and overly a large learning exprience :P So bear with me here). Anyway, I was asked to look into a way to rewrite our dynamic url's to something more SEO and user friendly.
So I was given an CMS they had already developed to play around with. I created a function that gets called when a new page is created or an old one edited by the admin that writes a new rule (or replaces an old one) for the page. Which worked as expected.
However; my supervisor comes back to me and says can we do it without writing directely to the htaccess file from the CMS - they had a site hacked before via the htaccess file. And so now I'm at a loss. I mean I literally have no idea how you would do this outside the CMS. And I tell her this. To which she responses that there is a way to do it, I have all the information I need and I should be able to find it out on my own (but less bitchy then that sentence might imply).
So I'm stuck, because I have no idea what she means and no idea what to even being to research. Thoughts?
