Hello!
I have a problem! I want this to work (in the .htaccess file):

RewriteRule (.*)/(.*)\.html$ /album\.php?album=$1&show=$2
RewriteRule (.*)/(.*)\.html$ /album\.php?album=$1&nbpage=$2

but it doesn't. If I disable one of them, the other one works, but I want them BOTH to work at the same time. How can I do that?

Please help me!

Hi archker,

Am no mod_rewrite expert, but this might work, placing [NE,L] after the first rule. If that don't work, Jim Morgan will be able to answer this one I am sure.

RewriteRule (.*)/(.*)\.html$ /album\.php?album=$1&show=$2 [NE,L]
RewriteRule (.*)/(.*)\.html$ /album\.php?album=$1&nbpage=$2

See message two [webmasterworld.com] for further explanation.

Helen,

What do you mean when you say you want these BOTH to work?

Since the patterns are the same, whichever rule you place first will always rewrite a request for <something>/<something>.html to /album.php and add on the query string. Then the second rule will never match, because the URL has been changed to /album.php, and therefore won't match a pattern with ".html" in it.

It might be simpler if you state the overall goal along with the implementation problem. Some detail appears to be missing.

Jim
