What is [L] for??

Recommended Posts

I have the following Mod_Rewrite...

RewriteEngine on

#PRETTY:		articles/postage-meters-can-save-you-money
#UGLY:			article.php?slug=postage-meters-can-save-you-money

RewriteRule articles/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ article.php?slug=$1

 

Someone told me I need to close it out with an [L] or something, but they weren't very clear.

 

Can someone help me figure out what might be wrong with the above code which seems to be working fine?

 

BTW, in my Dev environment, the above code is all I have in my .htaccess file, however in Production I will probably have other code - which I really don't understand - that does things like make sure my site starts with "www" and redirects for old pages that are dead.

 

Maybe now is time for .htaccess/Mod_Rewite "housecleaning?!  :shy:

 

Thanks,

 

 

Debbie

last|L Stop the rewriting process immediately and don't apply any more rules. Especially note caveats for per-directory and .htaccess context (see also the END flag).

 

Rewrite rules can be chained together so something can be re-written multiple times.  Using [L] will cause the process to stop after the rule is applied.  There are many flags that can be set.  The manual page I linked above explains all of them.

How does my .htaccess file look??

 

#----------------------------------------------------------
#Eliminate index.php.
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} "GET /index.php HTTP/1.1"
RewriteRule index\.php http://www.mywebsite.com/ [R=301,L]


#----------------------------------------------------------
#Redirect all non-www calls to www.
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteRule .? http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

#PRETTY:		articles/postage-meters-can-save-you-money
#UGLY:			article.php?slug=postage-meters-can-save-you-money

#RewriteRule articles/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ article.php?slug=$1

RewriteRule articles/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ articles/article.php?slug=$1


#----------------------------------------------------------
#Clean up Dead Links in Google.
Redirect 301 /browse/articles/3 http://www.mysite.com/article_index.php

 

 

Thanks,
