Assigning variable as "directory" in url

Postby Genjitsu » Wed Oct 22, 2008 6:33 pm

Ok, so I have a site that has two different layouts, let's call one male and the other female. Currently I have it set up so that you can change the layout of the site by adding a variable to whatever page is pulled up. So for example:


Is there a way to use mod_rewrite to have it appended by typing it as a directory, regardless of which file is pulled up? In other words, if I had another file, listing.php

listing.php?site=male&othervariables = blah
turns into

I hope this doesn't sound too confusing, I just don't want to create two copies of what's basically the same site by making actual directories named male and female. Thanks for any help!
