But if I do that, dont I lose the pagination?
I am just comparing to sites that I have created. Both have pagination set, one has been set to show 10 records and the other 4 records to show.
One of them has the url like this portfolio.php?pageNum_PortfolioRS=1
and the other has the url like portfolio.php?pageNum_PortfolioRS=2&totalRows_Port folioRS=16
Obviously the latter is not great to be used when trying to do a mod_rewrite, but that aside, I just dont understand why one wouold be 'normal' and the other would show the number of items to be shown....
Sorry if I am not explaining this very well :S
