Hi

I'm a complete newbie when it comes to .htaccess - I know how to copy and paste into it but that's all!

What I'm after...is a rule that will automatically rewrite

www.domain.com/items/items/filename.php?stuff=3

to

www.domain.com/items/filename.php?stuff=3

Long live google constantly crawling dead files!

Thanks

Try this in the .htaccess file for the top-level directory:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^items/items/([a-z]+)\.php$ http://www.domain.com/items/$1.php [R=301]

That should cause requests for items/items to be redirected (causing the browser to change address) to the items/ folder. It will match any filename that consists of only alphabetic characters. If you want a more permissive pattern, it'll have to be adjusted to suit. The query string should be passed intact by the redirect, but let me know if this is not the case.
