I\'ve been struggling with this one for a couple of weeks now so perhaps someone here may have an answer or some guidance to share. What I\'m after is to redirect only a bookmarked page request back to my main site page. In other words, if someone bookmarks my gallery or message board, they call up the site main page on their next vist but as long as there\'s a referal in the header all works fine. I\'ve spent hours on the Apache site but admittedly much of what they speak of is beyond my experience level. Is this possible to do and if so, why does the following not seem to do it?

RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$ RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://mydomain.com/.*$ [NC] RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.mydomain.com/.*$ [NC] RewriteRule ^? http://www.mydomain.com [R,L]

P.S. I\'ve been through the discussion of both why do I want to do this and how I\'ll lose members countless times during my search so please, let\'s not go there yet again :roll:
