htaccess rewrite to add subdirectory name and .htm to request

In those instances when a page is called by a four-digit number, I need a rewrite that adds a subdirectory name and ".htm" to the call, like this:

www.videojobshop.com/2345 > videojobshop.com/job_videos/2345.htm

and

videojobshop.com/2345 > videojobshop.com/job_videos/2345.htm

Note that the subdirectory "job_videos" has been added and ".htm" has been added

I need to be careful that this rewrite only affects urls that look like this - www.domain.com/5678 - so I need a check for a four-digit number.

Hi,
Just put this code in a .htaccess file at the root of your website, or put it into your website's <VirtualHost> container in httpd.conf (apache config file) if apache doesn't allow such a .htaccess use :

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^([0-9]{4})$ job_videos/$1.htm [QSA,L]

It will work with both domains, with and without www if both point to the same location (or are in the same <VirtualHost> container). This should be already the case :)
It will work only for these domains.

Regards,
Ben
