How to get Seo friendly URL in search bar in php


Recommended Posts

I have posted three files one is .htaccess, search.php and header.php. Inside header.php I have a form that redirects to search.php. Basically, I am trying to make SEO friendly URL my current URL displays as example.com/blog/search.php?keyword=a expected result should be example.com/blog/search/a and example.com/blog/search.php?keyword=a&page=2 expected result should be example.com/blog/search/a/page/2. I have tried changing the .htaccess file and location in search.php but it doesn't work any solution, please.

htaccess file

RewriteRule ^search/([^/.]+)/page/([^/.]+)?$ search.php?keyword=$1&pn=$2 [L]


<?php if (isset($_GET['keyword'])) { $keyword = $_GET['keyword']; } else { $keyword = ""; } ?> <form class="d-flex" method="GET" action="search.php"> <input type="search" placeholder="Search" value="<?php echo $keyword; ?>" name="keyword" maxlength="70" autocomplete="off" required class="form-control me-sm-2"> <button class="btn btn-secondary my-2 my-sm-0" type="submit"><i class="fa fa-search" aria-hidden="true"></i></button> </form>


<? session_start(); include 'header.php'; //include 'config.php'; //pagination $keyword = $_GET['keyword']; if (empty($keyword)) { header("location: index.php"); } else{header("location: search/".$keyword); } if (!isset($_GET['page'])) { $page = 1; } else { $page = $_GET['page']; } $limit = 2; $offset = ($page - 1) * $limit; //pagination ends $sql = "SELECT * FROM blog LEFT JOIN categories ON blog.category=categories.cat_id LEFT JOIN users ON blog.author_id=users.user_id WHERE blog_title LIKE :keyword or blog_body LIKE :keyword ORDER BY published_date DESC LIMIT $offset,$limit"; $stmt = $conn->prepare($sql); $stmt->bindValue(':keyword', '%' . $keyword .
