jodunno Posted March 3 Share Posted March 3 (edited) Hello everyone, i recently played with some code which uses a number delimited hyperlink reference to traverse the weeks of a year. Please see this thread to follow along with my question. Honestly, run my code in xampp to make the picture clearer if it isn't clear enough. link to my code example: imagine that clicking through the numbers 1 to 52 loaded 52 different webpages from a site. One could traverse the content of an entire website with one navigation system. Then i realize that we already play this numbers game: zipcode, street address (also has a string name). So when i imagine php pages named using numbers instead of words, such as 110 for index page of the domain, i realize how easily we could use math formulas and statistics to quickly add power to our web apps. I started jotting down some ideas but i wonder if this concept is already being used behind the scenes. I really wonder if it is the engine to sites like Google. The url string names are just string representations of the actual number system used to design the app and its pages. As it stands, i've always been influenced to name my pages with language strings (index.php, news.php, shinynewproducts.php, et cetera) i hate the idea of trying to develop my own system when one may already exist. I just cannot find examples of such a system. I imagine that math could be used to traverse a category by range with previous and next buttons et cetera. random pages would be easier to load. The ideas are endless when we switch from language and strings to numbers. I wonder if anyone has some links to material covering this subject? i cannot find the right search words in Google...
