rewrite folder / hide user access problems

Postby jhaek_19 » Sat Oct 03, 2009 4:30 pm

Hi

I found this code of yours in the forum:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule !^joomla(/.*)?$ /joomla%{REQUEST_URI} [QSA,L]
RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
RewriteRule ^joomla(/(.*))?$ /$2 [R=301,L]

result is:

when www.domain.com is entered it redirects to the folder:
www.domain.com/newfolder but hides the folder name "newfolder"
and shows only www.domain.com


It was nice, working perfectly but when on my website access, when my users try to login in my login form, it does nothing...it does not log in or send any message at all. Is this problem due to the rewrite of the folder?

Please reply!

Thanks!

Do you get a blank page? Does the form submit at all?
What is the <form>'s action=""?
Do other forms on the website work?

Well, if I remove the .htaccess and browse the www.mydomian.com/testfolder everything is fine...

here's the form's action:
<form action="/newfolder/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=article&amp;id=1&amp;Itemid=1" method="post" name="login" id="form-login" >
...
<input type="hidden" name="option" value="com_user" />
<input type="hidden" name="task" value="login" />
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="L3RzcG9ydHovaW5kZXgucGhwP29wdGlvbj1jb21fY29udGVudCZ2aWV3PWFydGljbGUmaWQ9MSZJdGVtaWQ9MQ==" />
<input type="hidden" name="43c9f93fbf4498044258703962e5eb1e" value="1" />
</form>

im using joomla...

/newfolder is the directory you are trying to hide, correct? Then the <form> action="" should not include it
Code: Select all
action="/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=article&amp;id=1&amp;Itemid=1"

The problem is that it is a POST form and the redirect loses the POST data. You should probably be able to change a base URL setting or similar in Joomla to fix this. You should make sure that non of your links include /newfolder as that would mean a redirect for every request (click of that link) which is inefficient.
