And that is exactly how Edward described it. You include the one script 
into the many URLs you want to make use of the script.
I guess that isn't what you are after, it just reads that way.

The other posts indicate to use a gateway script, something that I 
thought about using at some point as well. My home server can be 
accessed through different URLs and although it is the same server I 
want a php script to pick up the request and redirect to the designated 
location. This way my wife can do whatever she wants on her portion and 
I can do whatever I want on my portion. Since we don't have time to even 
start with a decent web site this is a moot point.

Coming back to what you want to accomplish, maybe defining exactly what 
you need and giving some examples may be helpful in reducing confusion.
