    Ahh that makes more sense now.

    Off the top of my head, I would modify my .htaccess file to use mod_rewrite. This will take care of the problem for you.

    .htaccess only works on LAMP systems (Linux running Apache, PHP, etc...) and not on ASP. For Microsoft IIS you will need to hunt down a "URL rewrite engine" or "URL rewrite api", I know there are several commercially availible.

    Both of these methods do the same thing, they take a user-entered url such as:

    http://www.domain.com/sexymama/123/abc/

    and make the server call instead:

    http://www.domain.com/program.asp?us...1=123&var2=abc

    etc etc according to the parameters you describe. You can find software that does this for no more than $50 and probably pay a programmer $100 to set it up for you, though with enough research you should figure it out.

    Since this is the only solution I know of, I can't give you any other advice. I know this works for me in every project I do.
