My customer is using MAMBO
Can anyone figure out why the indicated line does not work?
It seems to work when I remove the ReWriteCond and ReWriteRule.

Can you suggest a solution so that all these lines work together?

Here is the htaccess file:
----------------------------
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
 RewriteEngine On
 RewriteBase   /

 # This line is not working....it says FILE NOT FOUND...any ideas?
 RewriteRule ^hickory-creek.html?$ /index.php?property_id=17 [L]

 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
 RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php
</IfModule>
----------------------------

Hi,

Comment out the RewriteCond and bottom RewriteRule and just try this:

RewriteRule ^hickory-creek.html$ index.php?property_id=17 [L]

hi, thanks for the suggestion. it did not work.
we resolved this by creating seperate php pages for each property_id and just having a php include as the contents of the file.

<?php include("index.php?property_id=17"); ?>

we then added a field in the property database that is called "property_detail_page" that contains the name of the newly created php file that contains the correct include.

so when users search the properties database, that page is output into the results.

I know this sounds like a lot of extra work, but we are hoping that this will increase our potential for search engine placement, since each file will be named with a few important key words related to that property.

we are also including in the database some fields for page title and keywords so that the meta information will be unique for each property as well.

thanks again,
dasher
