Thanks for continuing to help me! I really appreciate that piece of code, JDM.
I ran it from the root as recommended.
Unfortunatley, it's causing my browser to time out. A similar sort of response to that when people make websites that can't handle users without cookies and the browser just keeps on trying to refresh.
This is my code now:
RewriteRule ^equipment/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/$ http://website.net/equipment/$2-$3/$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^equipment/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/([0-9]+)$ http://website.net/equipment/index.php?name=$1&id=$2 [L]
Any thoughts guys?
