so the thing is I'm using .htaccess to hide the index.php but I still get the controller name in the url like that: http://example.com/name_controller/about
My question is: is it possible to hide the name of the controller, so that only method is shown? hxxp://example.com/name_controller/about
You can define a custom route in config/routes.php - for example:
$route['about'] = 'name_controller/about'; Then, http://example.com/about goes to http://example.com/name_controller/about
See Hiding the controller’s method name in the URL? in the CI forums for more information.
