Pretty URL for template detail pages

I have 'pretty' URLs set up for standard detail pages on my client's site where the product filters on the name instead of ID and I add hyphens between each word in the name using str_replace. However, I have another area on the site which uses PowerCMS template pages for the results and detail page, and as soon as I try to add hyphens to the Name parameter, the detail page only ever loads the first record. So, on the results page if I have the URL like this it works:

<a href="survey-detail?ID=<?php echo $row_rsSurveys['ContentGroup']; ?>

but if I change it to this, it always loads the most recent record:

<a href="survey-detail?ID=<?php echo str_replace(' ', '-', $row_rsSurveys['ContentGroup']); ?>" >

The results page is passing the URL correctly but the detail page obviously isn't recognising it with the hyphens. Is there something I need to add to the detail page to make this work?

You would have to update the recordset on the detail page and make sure you are filtering it with the correct value.

You would probably have to adjust the SQL statement on the results page to replace spaces with dashes in your WHERE clause so you are comparing apples to apples. SQL has a REPLACE() function you can use for that.

I tried using REPLACE( table.field, ' ', '-' ) in the recordset but it still didn't work. I went for the quick fix instead - as there are only 7 records currently, I just updated the Content Group names to include hyphens - sorted!
