Discuss practical ways rearrange URLs using mod_rewrite.

The other mod_rewrite code is not what you want.

Try
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule browse-cattery-([0-9]+)\.html /index.php?page=browse&category=$1 [QSA,L]

Also try replacing QSA with R.

I tried it both ways. Still no change. I have been reading alot, thanks for all the info by the way, the way you are stating seems right according to the info here. It just doesn't work. I have one site running on the same server, it uses mod-rewrite as well and works fine..... I am out of ideas I guess.

What URL are you going to?
Do you have a file called "browse" something (eg. browse.html)?
Do you have any other mod_rewrite?

Try
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule browse-cattery-([^/]+)\.html /index.php?page=browse&category=$1 [QSA,L]

I have a browse.php which runs through another php file and produces
Code: Select all
index.php?page=browse&category=1


the -MultiViews didn't seem to work.

If you rename browse.php, does it work (or at least do something different)?

it wouldn't work. the way the index.php and others are written, they require browse.php, they have include(browse.php) written in to them.
