when i hove over the link i get the id right example localhost/wall/roves/345
when i try this
<a href="<?php echo $base_url ?>roves.php" style="font-weight:bold"><?php echo $message;?></a>
without the id that is, it opens a page
i use this
<a href='<?php echo $base_url ?>**status/<?php echo $msg_id; ?>**' class="timeago" title='<?php echo $mtime; ?>'></a>
and it works on the status page, but not on the roves page
looks as though it deends upon Apache mod_rewrite.
wall/roves.php should work if this is indeed the path to the file roves.php
However, if your .htaccess rewrite code is a bit off, then I would imagine that your server wouldn't know where to find roves/378 - so it's probably looking for a roves directory and a file called 378 (with no extension).
Perhaps something like this...
RewriteRule ^roves/([^/]*)$ /roves.php?id=$1 [L]
This assumes the querystring parameter value of 378 is assigned to the 'key' of 'id'. So your php code can do this at the url wall/roves/378 :
