Mod_Rewrite Hack
November 28, 2004 06:20AM
I searched, but didn't found this hack.

I would do it by myself, but i have no knowledge about the parsing-part. For a php-coder it should be a simple job.

Perhaps someone is interessted in this hack, too. It would improve usability and Google likes it.

Mod_Rewrite? Cryptic Urls become readable paths!

/list.php?1 > /offtopic/
/list.php?2 > /support/
/list.php?3 > /feedback/

/read.php?2,1 > /support/1/
/read.php?2,2 > /support/2/

/search.php > /search/
/search.php?1 > /support/search/

Thanks for your attention.

thats an even more tough hack than the usual mod_rewrite changes.
usually you would do something like that:
/list.php?1 > /list/1
/list.php?2 > /list/2
/list.php?3 > /list/3

mod_rewrite doesn't know about the names and you would need to hardcode all the names therefore.

btw.: nice template there :)

Mh, ok, perhaps a good feature in Phorum 6.0 :)

Thanks for every Devoloper for this great System.

as I told, its the deficiency of mod_rewrite which doesn't know about the forum-name <-> forum-id relation.
and mod_rewrite is apache-specific ... ;).

oh, i thought there is eventually a way php could rewrite the .htaccesfile.

ok, i'll try it on my own. i think i just need to hack the dynamic intern linkage and adjust the .htaccess-file with my own forum-names.

time to learn more about php.

thx thomas.

I just did a small hack for search-engine-friendly URLs aka URLs which can be used with mod_rewrite.

Please read the instructions on top of the file, changes/corrections welcome.

I would really like if there would be a more generic mod_rewrite ruleset which could be used with that.
I'm not used to mod_rewrite and just hacked that ruleset together ;).

About the ruleset. This works for me:

RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([0-9])/([^/]*)/(.*)$ $1/$2/$3,$4
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([0-9])/([^/]*)$ $1?$2,$3
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([0-9])$ $1?$2

This rewrites all urls of the form
file.php/N/X1/X2/X3/X4/.../Xk to
where N is a number and X1,X2,...,Xk are any string not including a slash ('/').

It works for me, but I'm not sure why! ;) My initial try was with some [N] flags on the first rule, but that doesn't seem to be needed...

my Mod_Rewrite Hack
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ([^/]*),([^/]*).html$ read.php?$1,$2
RewriteRule ([^/]*),([^/]*),([^/]*).html#([^/]*)$ read.php?$1,$2,$3#$4
RewriteRule ([^/]*),([^/]*),([^/]*),([^/]*).html#([^/]*)$ read.php?$1,$2,$3,$4#$5
RewriteRule sub_([^/]*).html$ index.php?$1
RewriteRule list_([^/]*).html$ list.php?$1
RewriteRule post_([^/]*).html$ post.php?$1

i think maybe the google robot will find the *.html docs more easily than *.php?**
