I see this bit of code being used in some places: $this->urlParams['']. I've seen an ID or an Action being passed with this, and you can pass something off to this by appending it to the url, such as: My questions are, how deep can this go? How does it know what I'm passing is an ID or some kind of action, or something else? Does it matter if I reverse the order up, like... or

Just looking for some light to be shed on this particular thing.

It's always Action/ID/OtherID.
This is defined as a "rewrite-rule" in sapphire/_config.php

Director::addRules(1, array(
	'$URLSegment//$Action/$ID/$OtherID' => 'ModelAsController',

You can create your own rules if you need other syntax or more parameters.
Update: Action usually refers to a method on the controller. Eg. somepage/test calls the "test" method on the somepage controller
