I was wondering how I would do something like this. I want to let my users create their own little content page to list stuff they want. I am storing the stuff they want in a database table, and I made a page called items that goes to the database and displays a specific persons data by their ID.
The url is currently like http://www.mysite.com/items/?id=99
I would like the user to enter be http://www.mysite.com/items/johndoe but the items page needs to receive the id as 99.
I feel like this should be possible using .htaccess but am not sure how to configure it because I currently have the permalink structure already rewriting the url.
Thanks for any help provided.
