Hi everyone !

I'm interested in mod_rewrite but I have a small problem despite having read some tutorials and the doc...

In fact, I have a website where users can subscribe. Then a
folder is created.

Because I wanted the users to have friendly URL, i added a rewrite rule
RewriteRule ^([a-z])([a-z])([a-z]+)$ /usr/$1/$2/$1$2$3/index.php
that allows them to access their page with www.site.com/login

The problem is : how to keep the query string ?
If I use site.com/usr/l/o/login/index.php?foo=bar, there's no problem of course.
If I use site.com/login/?foo=bar, I'm doomed.

A lil help would be greatly appreciated =)

Thanks !

Why dont you just mod_rewrite the query string. After all that is why mod_rewrite partly exists.

I tryed to rewrite the query string but it simply didnt work.

RewriteRule ^([a-z])([a-z])([a-z]+)/?([a-z0-9&=]+)$ /usr/$1/$2/$1$2$3/index.php?$4 gave me an error 500.
