When I access my site on MAMP like so, it works great
When I upload it to my remote server, and access it like this
all requests go back to the 'default' set up in
Here is my route setting.
Route::set('default', '(<page>)') ->defaults(array( 'page' => 'home', 'controller' => 'page', 'action' => 'index', ));
The problem is, whenever it gets uploaded to my server, any request like /about-us/ is always defaulting to home as specified when setting the route. If I change that default to 'about-us', every page goes to 'about us'.
Does anyone know what may be causing this? Thanks
Here is a hack that works, but is sure ugly as hell. Still I'd prefer to know why it doesn't work as per expected.
// Hack because I can not get it to go to anything except 'default' below... $uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; $uri = str_replace(url::base(), '', $uri); $page = trim($uri, '/'); if ( ! $page) $page = 'home'; Route::set('default', '(<page>)') ->defaults(array( 'page' => $page, 'controller' => 'page', 'action' => 'index', ));
Your code is basically a catch all route (it's being matched for all requests). You should restrict it like so.
Route::set('static', '(<page>)', array('page' => 'about-us')) ->defaults(array( 'controller' => 'page', 'action' => 'index', ));
The 3rd parameter is a regular expression which defines what the route should match.
That route will route everything matched in the regular expression to the page controller and its index action.
You can then use
$page = $this->request->param('page'); in your action.
