Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
should be converted to
this redirection should not be shown on browser (should be hidden from user and search engines)
is this possible.
RewriteRule ^father(.*)$ ./kannada-greeting.php?g=$1 [L]
Here is what happens
it works fine as expected.
This spoils the page with css, images missing(as it considers father as a directory/folder.
Any work arounds?
I have tried RewriteRule ^father/(.*)$ ./kannada-greeting.php?g=$1 [L]
Which doesnt work either.
As for your redirects and rewrites, this other thread shows the full process, which you need to understand before making changes to your server configuration: [webmasterworld.com...]
You need the redirects as well as the rewrites, otherwise both URLs continue to work, and both will be indexed by search engines as Duplicate Content.
