i am trying how to figure out how to word this question so that i can research (google) it. i know that the old fashioned way of representing "anywebsite.com/about/" would be to create a folder called "about" and drop an index/default file in it. since wp runs off a database structure, how would this address be read?
i am wanting to create websites with similar tiered structures that doesn't involve countless folders, but am not sure of how to go about it. is there a catch-all file that reads url input and then makes a determination of whether the call exists or not? where can i read up on these tricks?
thank you kindly.
