darko123 asked 1 year ago
Hi

I would like to know what kind of sites poeple have as i am debating about what to do with my new site.

1. Do you have a dynamic or static site
2. If dynamic, do you use a mod rewite( to rewrite your dynamic urls )

if you have any opinions about this subject, please post them

Cheers

I voted dynamic, but in reality I have both static and dynamic sites. I do not use mod-rewrite if I don’t need to and I have created my sites such that it does not need additional rewrite rules to be seen well within the SE’s.

I don’t even understand the question. Please explain what are dynamic and static sites.

Gees, I’ve been a webmaster since 1997 and you’d think I’d know what you’re talking about.:blush:

Static would be html with nothing being inserted from a database (dynamic). Dynamic would be, of course, data driven websites which are generating pages, content, or both via a database.

Example static URL: http://www.choicegambling.com/blacklisted-casinos.php

Example dynamic URL: http://www.choicegambling.com/games/slots/new-slots.php?page=2
(notice the arkRed”>? in the URL)

Example dynamic URL that uses mod rewrite to form a static URL:

Original dynamic URL: arkRed”>http://www.site.com/reviews.php?name=nostalgia-casino

Static URL after mod rewrite: arkRed”>http://www.site.com/reviews/nostalgia-casino.html

Mod rewrite code used to convert dynamic URL to static URL (this code is placed in the .htaccess file):

[COLOR=”Blue”]RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^reviews/(.*).html reviews.php?name=$1 [nc][/COLOR][/CODE]

Hope that helps. :blush:[CODE]RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^reviews/(.*).html reviews.php?name=$1 [nc]
[/CODE]

Hope that helps. :blush:

Thanks for your input and explaining – i think i will have a mixture of both then

so engineer, let me know if ive got this right

You have your homepge and main catagory ( subpages ) as static…… but when you go deeper you use dynamic pages for stuff like slots reviews etc

basically when theres something repetitive to be done, like slots reviews, as ther could be hundreds of them, its better to use dynamic as its so much easier to produce pages from database – and much easier to update them ?

dynamic engine for site is very handy when make changes in design or want to update time-to-time. As for me, You must use dynamic site + mod rewrite – this is more handy for search engines (and SEO) IMHO.

The biggest advantage in Dynamic for me is that you can have a flat file of affiliate links and casino info and when you need to make changes, one edit to this file will update the whole site.

I agree with that one Simmo! I have all my affiliate links in a database and change is simple across all sites as I have a standard database architecture as well across my site portfolio.
