Need some quick help

Postby ladrao2007 » Wed Aug 20, 2008 8:12 pm

I am in need of some help. I have a site that has a directory of stores listed throughout my state and soon to be nationally.

Right now my url looks like:

and also ... ate=Nevada

I would like to get the URLs to look nicer and friendly. Here is what I would like them to look like


if anyone has some info on how to go about doing this, I think I have tried just about every example I can find, hence why I resort to having to ask a pro.

Thanks in advance

*I have been playing around with it and i can get it to work as by using

Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
RewriteEngine On

# Don't match existing files.
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f
# Don't match existing directories.
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/?$ /city-search.php?city=$1 [QSA,L]

but if I change the RewriteRule to
Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^city/([^/]+)/?$ /city-search.php?city=$1 [QSA,L]

then it loses all the css elements of the page.. Any ideas?
