Subject Re: Passing parameters in simple URLs
Date Wed, 20 Feb 2013 00:51:41 GMT

I tried your suggestion but it doesn't seem to be working or am I
entering the wrong URL? The home url is: .../_design/mydb/index.html

When I query: .../_design/mydb/a/b
I get: {"error":"not_found","reason":"Document is missing attachment"}

My goal is to generate simple urls for users instead of server-side
params with: ?foo=a&bar=b
