On many modern sites I see this pattern, but haven't figured out how to do it with modx yet.

Say I have a user who clicks on a link on Facebook with the following url: mysite.com/event/3rf78gh9 they will, with my mod_rewrite rule hit a page more commonly known as


This works with the following Rewrite_rule.

RewriteRule ^event/([^/]+)/?$ event/?eventId=$1 [L]

My scenario is of cause a bit more complex then this, and I would really like to be able to also do the following:

Which should translate to

Where id 24 is messages

However i can't figure out how to create that type of mod_rewrite rule, please come up with suggestions for this.

Now being a perfectionist I would also like to have my links generated with the same rules. Eg.
[[~24 &eventId=`3rf78gh9`]]

Is it even possible with modx

[[CreateUrl? &docId=`24` &eventId=`3rf78gh9`]]

/* CreateUrl snippet */
return MODX_BASE_URL . 'event/' . &eventId . '/messages.html';

You didn't have '24' in your example URL, so I didn't know what to do with it in the code.

I solved the mod_rewrite rules, so that is no longer an issue.
If anyone is looking to do something similar here's the rules:
RewriteRule ^event/([A-Za-z0-9-]+)/?$ event/?eventId=$1 [N]
RewriteRule ^event/([A-Za-z0-9-]+)/messages.html$ event/messages.html?eventId=$1 [L,QSA]

Second part is still up in the air.

How would one have
[[~24 &eventId=`3rf78gh9`]]

//Be parsed to 

I think I could create a small snippet for writing the urls, but is there another way?
