Include the page ID in the link parameters so that PHP can locate the correct page content to display.
- [Instructor] Now that we added page content…in the last movie, we have our database data ready.…And we're ready to let the user choose different…pages of content, using our navigation.…You should already have the skills to accomplish this…from what we did in part one of this course,…that is, you want to be able to click on…one of these links and have it send…a URL parameter that'll indicate which page…we're working with.…That'll then show up up here, in the URL…and then we'll be able to grab that parameter,…go to the database and find the appropriate…page to display it here.…
Let's walk through it together.…Let's go to our code.…We want to go into the public navigation…and right here, where we're outputting the nav…page menu name, right above it we have a link.…And that link right now just goes to index.php,…it also needs to send a URL parameter.…So we're going to call it id, so id is going to be equal…to the dynamic value from nav page.…And it's just going to be id.…Now we don't want to just use that value on its own.…
