Hello all,

Compliments for the great forum. Although its my first post it has helped me a lot in the past!

I have a little problem here.
These are some of my dynamic urls:
[a href=\"http://www.mysite/companysearch/search_result.php?search=Browse&category=painter\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mysite/companysearch/search_res...ategory=painter[/a]
[a href=\"http://www.mysite/companysearch/search_result.php?search=Browse&category=builder\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mysite/companysearch/search_res...ategory=builder[/a]

Thats not excactly the urls search engines like!

I would love to change it into:
[a href=\"http://www.mysite/companysearch/painter.html\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mysite/companysearch/painter.html[/a]
[a href=\"http://www.mysite/companysearch/builder.html\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mysite/companysearch/builder.html[/a]

Can somebody help me on this one?
Thnx Tatjana

Mind re-writting your question? I don't quite understand...

Mind re-writting your question? I don't quite understand...

Aslong as you are using an Apache webserver with mod_rewrite installed - do this.

In your companysearch dir create a .htaccess file with this inside :

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.*).html [a href=\"http://www.mysite/companysearch/search_result.php?search=Browse&category=$1\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mysite/companysearch/search_res...ategory=$1[/a]

that will make anything type in the (.*) space of the url to be a searchable category EG /painter.html will be rewritten to /search_result.php?search=Browse&category=painter

let me know if you dont get me lol
