Re-Write the URL using $_SESSION vars

Hi,

I have been working on site for the last month and in terms of tech development it's now done, I'm waiting for final content.

While I wait I am playing around with some other ideas.

Each page on this site is loaded through AJAX so the URL never changes. However, if the URL contains two parameters then a specific page is loaded when the site boots up. This enables me to send out page specific links.

Every time a new 'page' is loaded two $_SESSION variables are updated to store the ID's that would be needed to get teh relevant page information from the DB. It would great if I could then write those to the URL so that bookmarking and browser history become available.

The trick is that I don't want to refresh the page to do this - that would defeat the point of having done this using AJAX.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I have spent a lot of time reading around on this subject and I have found nothing that has made much sens to me.

Well now I've asked my question I best go see if there's a question or two I can answer.

Cheers

Hi.

Sounds to me like you need JavaScript to edit the URL the browser is displaying?
That's more of a JavaScript thing, so I'll move this over to the JavaScript forum.

You could try using the location.hash property.

There are some implementations, e.g. RSH (Really Simple History). You may also find this link useful.

Hi,

Thanks for the pointers. I had started playing around with the # idea - this at least allows bookmarking before any more advanced modifications to allow the back button to function.
