Permalinks and Dynamic URL's
Hi there Smile

I have a GLinks install that generates dynamic pages. I have set the following options in the Admin panels:

Setup->Build Options:

build_category_format = Full/Long Category/Name
build_detail_format = FullCategoryName/Title_LinkID


If I build the pages to make static pages, the URL's are correct, for example,
the United Kingdom's URL would look like this "http://myweb.com/Europe/United_Kingdom/[/url]".
But if I don't build the pages, the browser reports that that URL does not exist.

I can, however, view the page using "http://myweb/cgi-bin/ page.cgi?g=Europe/United_Kingdom/[/url]", but this is a bit nasty to display in the address bar.

So basically, I want the user to be able to enter a static page's URL and get a dynamic page.

Some-one told me GLinks takes care of this issue itself, but I can't seem to find the settings for it Unsure.
Or should I rather use rewrite rules?

Thank you Smile
