PHP Release: Cleaning URLs with Rewrite Rules

I'm happy to announce that the third stage in my Enhancing A Simple PHP Application project is now live. In this stage, we finish cleaning up the web addresses for the Shirts 4 Mike website using rewrite rules in Apache. Here's a link and the description.

The web addresses in our store have various technical pieces in them, like question marks with variables after them. Cleaning up the web addresses can help optimize them for search engines, make them easier to remember or to guess, and make them more likely to endure the same over time. We’ll cover a number of concepts as we remove these pieces, including rewrite rules and htaccess files.
