Subject RE: [users@httpd] Need a mod-rewrite rule for a website's home page
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2006 19:40:31 GMT
Thanks for all the tips. I'm still new to mod-rewrite rules, so some of this is a little over
my head, but I'll try your ideas when I get a chance. But it will be a few more hours before
I get a chance to experiment with it...

RewriteRule ^/About/([^/]+)/?$ /About/index.php?bout=$1 [L]

RewriteCond $1 !=About
RewriteRule ^/([^/]+)/?$ /index.php?home=$1 [L]

Subject: [users@httpd] Need a mod-rewrite rule for a website's home page

I have a content management system that uses mod-rewrite rules for various sections. For example,
the page mysite/About/index.php uses the following mod-rewrite rule:

RewriteRule ^About/([a-zA-Z0-9_/-]+)/?$ About/index.php?bout=$1 [L]

It displays URL's like mysite/About/Webmaster and mysite/About/Search.

I've finally figured out how to apply a mod-rewrite rule to my site's home page...

RewriteRule ^/?([-a-zA-Z0-9_/]+)/?$ /index.php?home=$1 [L]

It displays URL's like mysite/Arizona and mysite/Africa.

The problem is that it apparently interferes with my other mod-rewrite rules. I can't display
mysite/About/Webmaster unless I delete the home page rewrite rule. Does anyone know how to
make the following rewrite rules compatible, or can you suggest alternative rewrite rules
that will work together?

RewriteRule ^/?([-a-zA-Z0-9_/]+)/?$ /index.php?home=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^About/([a-zA-Z0-9_/-]+)/?$ About/index.php?bout=$1 [L]
