@traq Thanks for the reply and…
Depends on how your database table is indexed – if you have an index on the title -and every title is unique- then no, it’s not a problem.
I have my database set up like this:
post_id (just an AUTO INCREMENT),
post_title (not unique),
post_url (unique and slug of post_title and if the slug already exists add '-2, -3, ...')
but I don’t really know what you mean by ‘an index on the title’ ? So I guess I don’t have it :) And oh ok if matching the post_url doesn’t make any noticeable difference in speed then I could do that.
If your DB is not indexed this way, you can create an index for it. This would be the simplest solution.
What exactly is the index that the code creates? Could you explain that a little more please?
instead of writing example.com/forums/category/post-id/post-title, write example.com/forums/category/post-title?id=post-id instead.
Isn’t that almost the same except swich the
