CodeIgniter Methods

In the earlier Hello World example, our method name is index(). By default Controller always calls index method. If you want a different method, then write it in the Controller’s file and specify its name while calling the function.

Look at the URL, there is no method name is mentioned. Hence, by default index method is loaded.

Method other than index()

Here, we have mentioned a method called newFunction(). Now we have to call this new method to run our program.

Create a controller page Hello.php in application/controllers.

Look at the above snapshot, we have created a function newFunction.

Create a view page hello_world.php in application/views.

To run this program on our browser, follow path


Codeigniter Methods 4

Look at the above snapshot, we created the Controller’s function as newFunction and specified it in the URL after Controller’s name.

Here, /index.php/Hello is Controller’s name.

And /newFunction is the Function name.

Remapping Method Calls

Second segment of URI determines which method is being called. If you want to override it you can use _remap() method.

If you have mentioned _remap() method in your controllers, it will always get called even if URI is different. It overrides the URI.
