Tutorial error...?? (RESOLVED)

I have just encountered a similar problem. Shame these comments can’t be shown underneath the tutorial rather than hidden away in a forum. Anyway, this is what I found:

1) The view (views/news/index.php) should contain a simpler href – just the PHP bit without ’news/‘ at the beginning.

2) if when creating the database records you used spaces in your slug field, you’ll get the 404 error from your new controller. I thought the purpose of the slug field was for a subheading to the news article, so of course my examples did contain spaces. The solution was to first encode the slug in the view (views/news/index.php):
Code:
<p>a href="&lt;?php echo rawurlencode($news_item['slug']) ?&gt;">View article</a></p>
(Actually, that step isn’t strictly necessary because the browser will do it automatically, but it makes the final HTML follow the spec)
NB I’ve left the opening angle bracket off the a tag here, because the forum wouldn’t let me include links in my post.

Then, in the news controller, add the line
Code:
$slug = rawurldecode($slug);
or similar to the view() function (method). It will now work.

I don’t know if this is the best way to do it.
