I have a page on my wordpress site http://example.com/location/ that has a bunch of default text. What I want to be able to do is make it so that when a url like http://example.com/location/california/ is entered, it will insert "california" throughout the page. I have a big list of locations, and instead of creating a new wordpress page for each location, I simply want to be able to use the same page template and automatically insert the location name if a user requests it.
Is there a plugin that allows something like this?
I have successfully made this work outside of wordpress using .htaccess and a rewriterule:
RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^location/(.*)/$ /location.php?location=$1
code for location.php:
<?php $place = $_REQUEST["location"]; ?> <?php echo $place ?>
So the page the user sees always gets passed the part of the url after location/ but to them it seems like it is a permanent page.
