I am looking to use mod_rewrite to remove the file extension of the files on my site. I am aware of how to make use of the mod but I was curious as to a couple of things when passing variables to a script. Such as if I have a file 'profiles.php' and I want to offer a link to view a specific profile would the link point to 'profiles?profile_id=#'? I am not certain if mod_rewrite will disrupt the script's use of the GET superglobal. And of course this would also go for form submissions. If I had a form to submit changes to a user's profile should iI then use 'form action=save_profile'. So believe that this should work as sending info by POST it isn't sent through the URL.
This isn't a huge deal as it's just something that I would like to do if it won't be too much of a headache. I wouldn't mind putting in the time to update links and form actions throughout my site but if it is going to require more work than that then it may not be worth it to me.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
