Hi,

pure URL rewrite  using javascript not is possible; a URL rewrite consist in transform a not existing URL into a resource on server, client side transparent.

Obviously, you can check the URL on your error 404 html page (if you can not run scripts on server) and process the document.location.href for redirect client on javascript runtime.

do you understand?

an example of your 404 html page would be

<html>
<head>
<script>
switch( location.href ) {
case 'http://.../a-page': location.href = '/a.htm'; break;
case 'http://.../b-page': location.href = '/b.htm'; break;
case 'http://.../c-page': location.href = '/c.htm'; break;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
Page not found!
</body>
</html>

I think I was not clear, or it just the thought... but what I was wanting to do is stop some HTTP requests at the cleint side.... basicaly I have a file being called 12-20 times... but it's the same file.. so the thought was there has to be a way to "capture" the HTTP requests ... I thought I've seen URL rewrites with javascript... but may-be I could have it so that it's more like this... if HTPP request is in array die else execute and push URL to array?  any ideas on that? thanks for the help

Ops!

In a general case, you can not stop a request petition, probably you like control all links elements on your page and, when user click then check a posible rewrite. is it?

No this is for when an element is called... in this case a link to a swf file.... it's one file that is being called many times ... also it's all in the jQuery script so that thought was that I could do something like "capture" the HTTP requests ... so if HTPP request is in array die else execute and push URL to array? I think... thanks for the help
