Question by Student
I don’t know how to write title for this question. Anyway this is the scenario ..
I have a table like this
id | username | firstname | lastname 1 | ab | Aaaa | Bbbb 2 | yz | Yyyy | Zzzz
I use following URL to show person profile:
example.com/person/profile/index?id=1 // Show person 1 profile example.com/person/profile/index?id=1 // Show person 2 profile
person is module,
profile is controller and
index is action used to get and show user profile using param
Above scenario is working perfectly.
Now I want to use following URLs to get user profile using usernames
example.com/person/profile/ab // Show person 1 profile example.com/person/profile/yz // Show person 2 profile
Any idea ??

By default you don’t need to do anything. Just add
/name/THENAME to the last of the url.
Get the value of the name
$name = $this -> _request -> getParam('name');
Use that values to extract the id from the database
- And use it as you want
