Trouble with .htaccess

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to rewrite my urls but don't seem to be getting it to work.

I've tried:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule /(.*)/(.*)/$ listings.php?ident=$1&facility=$2

And I've also tried:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^([^/\.]+)/([^/\.]+)?$ listings.php?ident=$1&facility=$2

 

Any suggestions?

I suggest that you try to describe your situation and your problem to us so we don't have to try to jump into the middle of it...

Nevermind.  I figured it out.  You make your links to your page as the friendly links and htaccess reads and converts the seo friendly link or directs it to the appropriate page.

That's right: .htaccess URL rewriting only tells Apache how to understand the new friendly URL structures. It doesn't also update the links on your pages for you.

Probably one of the most common misunderstanding for people starting out with the concept of "seo friendly" url's.  You are definately not alone, but kuddos for figuring it out on your own.
