hi

just working on a site where I have a product directory. I also have users. The can login and create own "lists" with products they love. From the datamodel site it's all done ... Members <-> Products (many_many).

Now I want that the users can see their products (they love) under this URL:

http://www.example.com/USERNAME/mylist1
or
http://www.example.com/USERNAME/mylist2

How to setup an eviroment which can handle this URLs?

thx

I test if the URLSegment is one of the usernames and if so I use a own controller, like here:
