Apache rewrite: How to rewrite the URL so that a page redirects but the URL stays the same?

Right now I have an .htaccess file that redirects visitors to our site.

If you go here:

http://www.monkeyclaus.org/abelokugawa

then you get redirected to here:

http://www.monkeyclaus.org/media/audio/index.php?pageId=182

What I'd like is for the visitor to see what is on this page:

http://www.monkeyclaus.org/media/audio/index.php?pageId=182

And yet see this as their URL:

http://www.monkeyclaus.org/abelokugawa/

Is that possible?

Hi lkrubner,


I think you could use Apache's mod_rewrite and add the following to your .htaccess file:

.htaccess:

Options FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /abelokugawa
RewriteRule abelokugawa /media/audio/index.php?pageId=182

That seems to answer the question I asked, so I'll accept it.

All the image links are broken. Is that because I used relative links and the browser now thinks it is in a folder called abelokugawa?
