URL Rewrite

Postby Anderw_iow » Thu Oct 23, 2008 11:09 am

Hi, I am tring to use Rewrite on a project I am working on I have got it work

Code: Select all
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule index/xps/(.*)/pid/(.*)/ index.php?xps=$1&pid=$2
RewriteRule index/xps/(.*)/pid/(.*) index.php?xps=$1&pid=$2   

which does work it redirects me from "index/xps/pview/pid/98/" to "index.php?xps=pview&pid=98" but I thought (I might be wrong) the whole point of rewrite was that "index.php?xps=pview&pid=98" stayed hidden but for me it still appears in the URL bar.

Any ideas, I hope I have explained it well this is my first day using url rewrite! I might just be being stupid but just would like to clear this up :)

The purpose of mod_rewrite like yours is to make the new URL work. Mod_rewrite does not change the links in the source of your pages, you must edit your script.

Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^index/xps/([^/]+)/pid/([0-9]+)/?$ /index.php?xps=$1&pid=$2 [QSA,L]
