Here is how to enable CodeIgniter support to $_GET and still able to use the normal “SEO-friendly” URL working together.
So you will get a URL like this
First approach is modify your “config.php” and change this line.
$config['enable_query_strings'] = true;
But this is not recommended because on pagination, you will get ugly URL.
Second approach is modify your “config.php” and change this line.
$config['uri_protocol'] = "PATH_INFO";
You can keep this line (notice it is still “false”)
$config['enable_query_strings'] = false;
And on your controller, you can use this code
parse_str($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'], $get_vars); echo $get_vars['some'];
