.htaccess rewrite rules stops reading url after first part of string


Recommended Posts

Thank you for reading.


I am trying to rewrite all dynamic category links (/product_list.php?cat_id=xxx) to more "friendly" text links. The problem I'm running into is with subcategories:

RewriteRule Complete-AC-Systems product_list.php?cat_id=2


works great, however when a sub category is present:


RewriteRule Complete-AC-Systems__Packaged-Systems product_list.php?cat_id=7


the browser stops reading after Complete-AC-Systems and re-directs to





Most of our categories are 3 and 4 levels in, so this is a pervasive issue.


Thanks for any help you can offer.

Or you can be more explicit with the matching.

RewriteRule ^Complete-AC-Systems$ product_list.php?cat_id=2
RewriteRule ^Complete-AC-Systems__Packaged-Systems$ product_list.php?cat_id=7


Also, this is horribly inefficient. Just modify your product_list.php so that it can look up the IDs given the names.
