Passing parameter to controller method fails - El Forum - 02-22-2012

Hi


I have an url like this

http://exmaple.com/video/1

and route like this:
Code:
$route['video/:num'] = 'players/video/$1';


and my controller method:

Code:
public function video($video_id) {        
        var_dump($video_id);
...

this is the var_dump output:
Quote:string(2) "$1"

and I expected $video_id to contain 1

You need parentheses around :num for the regex to pass the value.
Code:
$route['video/(:num)'] = 'players/video/$1';
