How can I hide content id on URL

This is quite straight forward to do.

1. In a table for products you would have product_id, product_url, plus all your other columns like name, price, description etc.
2. The product_url is a unique column and can be auto generated based on, say, the required product_name, or your user or admin can add a custom one from your 'add product screen'.
3. When you generate a url like your example, you do not send the 'id', you send the 'product_url' and look up your product from that.

PHP Code:
public function view_product($product_url)
{
 
   // do your query on the product_url


To generate the url you would do

Code:
<a href="<?php echo site_url('products/view_product/'.$item['product_url']); ?>">ProductName</a>

The url will then be something like:

Code:
www.mydomain.com/products/view_product/my_wonderful_product

So now, the product ID's are only for internal use, any reference to them in url's or your HTML is by url name, not their id. (By internal use, I mean once you have the product, you would still gather other related tables via the id, such as related products, special offers, related articles, reviews etc).

Hope that helps.

Really?

1. You currently generate a url using a field called ID. Instead generate a url with a field called 'page_url'.
2. You currently do a database query with a search on ID. Instead do a database query with a search on 'page_url'.

Clearly, you need a database column in which the 'page_url' is stored beside your current ID.

That is it.

I can run through your code and replace 'id' with 'page_url' but do you really need me to do that? Also, the column in which your page name is kept might be called 'page_slug', or 'page_code', or 'page_url_name'.

I hope this helps,

Paul.
