    Hi,

    I'm trying to rewrite dynamic URL's to virtual .html URLs but can' figure it out..

    example:

    Code:

    Code:
    http:///www.example.com/sub/index.html?keyword=var1 var2 var3
    to

    Code:

    Code:
    http:///www.example.com/sub/var1-var2-var3.html
    There could be more than 3 variables or less...

    any idea?

    If you want a long term reference that you can use over and over for all sorts of rewrites, invest in a decent book. I constantly refer to "The Definitive Guide to Apache mod_rewrite" by Rich Bowen to make sure I get things right. It's paid for my investment many times over.

    Also make sure you test your rewrites well - you can easily stuff it up and cause yourself a heap of drama and damage your SE position. Rewrites can be a PITA to debug, especially if you have a regualr expression error or a loop. Two tools that help are RegexBuddy (http://www.regexbuddy.com/) to check your regular expressions and Web Sniffer (http://web-sniffer.net/) to see what rewrite URL actually gets sent to the browser.

    Code:
    ReWriteRule ^sub/(.*)-(.*)-(.*).html$ sub/index.html?keyword=$1 $2 $3
    This wont work because of the malformed url and I an not rly sure that the rewrite is correct, but it should give you an ideea.

    I've got a url rewrite question. I've got a ton of outbound links on my site that would take forever to manually edit. I want to blank the referrer to these outbound links using the blanking server https://referer.us

    How can I use .htaccess to prepend http://referer.us to all my outbound links so that all m referers are blanked?

    Thanks.

    I am not sure on how to do it via your .htaccess file, but I have a plug-in that allows you to add links to words (specified by you) automatically.

    Not sure if this will help you, PM me if you want to know more.
