RewriteRule widgets.php http://www.myurl.html [R=301,L,NE]
RewriteRule widgets.htm http://www.myurl.html [R=301,L,NE]

I don't see any reason why they wouldn't work together, unless you a redirecting to a URL that also matches the rule (maybe widgets.html??). If you were, you would need $ (matching the end of the URL) so that it doesn't match .html.
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^widgets\.(htm|php)$ [R=301,L]
