You should have a "id - title" map which can be retrieved from database. After finding title which is assigned to id, simply run something like below to HTTP redirect:

<?php
$title = getTitleFromSomewhereById($_GET['id']);
header("Location: http://domain_name.com/pages/" + $title);
// Set other headers if you like
exit;
?>

As you reference via 'id', you're probably stuck with this php header. However, if you reference:

domain_name.com/pages.php?id=faq

domain_name.com/pages.php?id=welcome

You could use Apache mod rewrite to:

domain_name.com/faq OR domain_name.com/pages/faq

domain_name.com/welcome OR domain_name.com/pages/welcome

I'm assuming that you have DB or array info linking the id number to the page name, so simply use the name instead of the number when you create your dynamic links. So if you have an .htaccess file as at the end of this post, then you could build your links to this:

domain_name.com/pages/faq/

and then you'd pick the $_GET['id'] in the pages.php file which would give 'faq'. The .htaccess file would look like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^pages/([^/]*)/$ /pages.php?id=$1 [L]

thankx for your response but it was not work.

my php code is:

<ul>
<?php foreach($moreinfo as $moreinfoarr){if($moreinfoarr['pageId'] !=9) {?>
                <li><a  href="pages.php?id=<?php echo $moreinfoarr['pageId'];?>"><?php echo $moreinfoarr['menutitle'];?></a></li>
                <?php } }?>
                                </ul>





$moreinfo was function to fetch data from database by quarry
like
$sql="select * from tablename where status='1'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);
while($moreinfo=mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
{
........
}

and my htaccess code is:

 RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain_name\.com$ [NC]
 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain_name.com/$1 [R=301]
 RewriteRule ^pages/([^/]*)/$ /pages.php?id=$1 [L]

i was also try with:

RewriteEngine On

# RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING}   ^id=([0-9]+)$
     # RewriteRule ^pages\.php$   http://www.domain_name.com/pages/%1? [R=301,L]

or

RewriteEngine On
 # Redirectmatch 301 /pages.php?id=11 http://www.domain_name.com/about-us [NC]
      #RewriteRule  /pages.php?id=$1 ^/(.*)$ [R=301,NC,L]

but that was not work.
