    Question How do I make pages in individual directories?

    I have been curious for a long time about how to make web pages with a page in each directory.

    Example:
    mysite.com
    mysite.com/tools
    mysite.com/about

    Usually, I just create one php page and leave it as index.php and use variables to call all other pages.

    Example:
    mysite.com/?p=tools
    mysite.com/?p=about

    This works fine, but I'd rather not develop sites this way. I can easily add my page code to each page in the directory, but I want to use one central document for governing all my PHP. What is the most professional way to handle this? I can think of many solutions, but what is the paradigm?

    Thanks,
    multi

    You can use a rewrite rule.

    Code:
    # .htaccess
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ index.php?p=$1 [QSA,L]
    This translates a URL like /tools into index.php?p=tools.

    You can simplify this a little by removing the query string component, and instead check the REQUEST_URI in your code.

    Code:
    # .htaccess
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php [QSA,L]
    PHP Code:
    // index.php

    $uri $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    if (
    $uri == '/tools') {
        
    tools_page();
    } elseif (
    $uri == '/about') {
        
    about_page();
    } else {
        
    header('Status: 404 Not Found');
        echo 
    '<html><body><h1>Page Not Found</h1></body></html>';

    EDIT: Fixed mistake in conditions.

    Hmm... is this the going paradigm? I think there's a more conventional and simple way to do this, but I'm not sure what it is.

    That's the going paradigm. The major frameworks do it this way. For example, Zend, Symfony, CakePHP, CodeIgniter, and others -- they each have you define a mapping between an external URL and an internal action to perform.
