Hi! I'm trying to accomplish a pagionation with filters from a dropdownbox.
My question is should I use query strings and use the $_GET array (I personally don't like this approach) or should I use uri segments aka. passing variablse to the method - something like this (i'm routing the index function and everything after 'category' are passed variables) http://www.mysite.com/en/category/clothe...ender/page. But this way my url will look like http://www.mysite.com/en/category/clothe...irts/1/2/2 which is not nice and my method will have like 6-7 variables which are also becoming url segments. I can also translate the filters to something like /asc/male/2.

Can you tell me a good way to accomplish this? I mean should I pass the filters like varr to my method? I'm using this method to pass my page for the pagination so I guess it's the same thing? Thanks.
