Hi,

I have this rule...RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([0-9a-zA-Z]+)[_]([0-9a-zA-Z]+)[_]([0-9a-zA-Z]+).*$ results.asp?kwds=$1+$2+$3
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([0-9a-zA-Z]+)[_]([0-9a-zA-Z]+).*$ results.asp?kwds=$1+$2


The problem is that it affects files like this...tp_general_highlight_on.gif which is an image file - unfortunately - i get this feed from else where so i cannot change the file name. What kind of condition can i set to ignore this file? and how can i set it?

Please help!

That makes sense but it seems to be searching for tp_general first -

i dont think the rule gets to the gif part - it gives me the same thing and seems to be trying to do this...results.asp?kwds=tp%20general...

any ides?

 Well, according to the way the rules are supposed to work, the Cond should occur after the Rule, and thus the transformation should not occur.  Interesting.

you might try:

RewriteRule ^([0-9a-zA-Z]+)[_]([0-9a-zA-Z]+)*!(?gif)$ results.asp?kwds=$1+$2

An other thing: Do you need .* at the end? Should foo_bar:foo result in results.asp?kwds=foo+bar?

Otherwise

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([0-9a-z]+)_([0-9a-z]+)$ results.asp?kwds=$1+$2 [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^([0-9a-z]+)_([0-9a-z]+)_([0-9a-z]+)$ results.asp?kwds=$1+$2+$3 [NC,L]

should fix it, too. Don't forget to clear the browser's cache.
