Confused by rewritebase

I am trying to get a dynamic page to appear static.

Requests to the page take two forms. either:

which gets mapped to:


which gets mapped to:

This is working so far:
Code: Select all
RewriteEngine on
rewritebase /nmdc/newspol/lists_non/
rewriterule ^(.*)/(.*)\.html$ /nmdc/newspol/lists_non/displaylist.php?InstitutionID=$1&SectionID=$2 [l]
rewriterule ^(.*)\.html$ /nmdc/newspol/lists_non/displaylist.php?InstitutionID=$1 [l]

Except that when the first rule is matched any internal inliks in the page are broken (images/css etc.)

Can anyone help me here?

There are something things that you haven't been clear about in your post. Such as which domain the rewriting is occuring in. However I remember of running into a similar problem on my site. What seems to be happening is that your pages are being rewritten but your images and CSS aren't. (This is a problem when rewriting out of a directory when your links are reletive). It would be a pain to rewrite all your images and CSS. Therefore the best thing to do is to use a base href within your <HEAD> tags. ie.

<base href="http://www.domain.ext/>

You'll need to play with the url obviously. But this should fix your problem. Make sure you place the code above the code to include your .css file as otherwise you won't get the CSS.

Good Luck!
