Simple Mod_Rewrite For GET Variable


Recommended Posts



I'd like to remove a GET variable from my URL like so: website.com/works.php?proj=project-name -> website.com/works/project-name.

I also need to strip the .php extension from the website.com/works location, even when the proj variable is not present.



Thank you for any responses.

RewriteRule does not look at the query string.

# 1. If they actually requested "/works.php?proj=foo" then redirect
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/works\.php\?proj=([^&]+)$
RewriteRule /works/%1 [L,R]

# 2. Rewrite
RewriteRule ^/?works/([^/]+) works.php?proj=$1 [L]
Even better would be modifying your works.php so that it redirects if it's requested via the wrong URL. Because strictly speaking the #1 above isn't enough to catch the various "invalid" possibilities and simply doing the work in your script is easier than listing them all out.
