Or Use Laravel. Or any of the many other SEO friendly frameworks. But that probably goes for anything you're planning to build from scratch. This article feels like it was written in '09 or something.

It is for teaching the concepts ;) I like to go back to DOS if I am teaching somebody Windows 10 :)

If your project already uses Laravel or other framework, it makes sense to use its resources if they can achieve the same purposes.

Otherwise, it is the same issue of using Wordpress just to have nice URLs. I think the purpose of the author was to avoid using full blown packages for a simple purpose.

While I understand the purpose of the article and the "if you're not using a framework" idea, I just feel it's not helpful to not point out that using a framework is almost always better than coding everything yourself. I was one of those developers that used to always do everything myself, and even now when I use frameworks and composer, I still have crap code because that mentality is so ingrained and I'm trying to do too much myself. I don't know, that was just my initial reaction to reading this.

I see your point and I do not disagree.

I guess to some extent the author was implicitly saying the same if you agree that Wordpress by itself is a framework that many developers use to build PHP applications that are much more than blogs.

Anyway, I see this article more of an explanation of how things could be done, rather than do it this way.
