I'm trying to set up a website that requires some unpleasant URLs and I want to rebuild them in the controller and output them that way.

// current output

Sometimes this can say pretty bad things like 'send-me-more?package=Something goes here & here' which is obviously bad, since when I pull $_GET['package'] out of the url, it stops at the &.

//desired output

any ideas on how to do this?

well $Title would have to be escaped to convert the &'s to & which you could do in PHP with the url_encode() function. You can do this in the template by calling URLATT. eg $Title.URLATT with should convert the elements for the url.
