Hi experts,

I need some help with a htaccess redirect I want to do. But somehow I dont get it work. Maybe somebody can help me with this.

I would like to forward all urls which have the pattern -vt# dosent matter if subdirectory or how ever the url looks.

What I need is that for example the url:
/xxxxxx/xxxxxx/word-vt200.php forward to /phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=200

The entire url is not important to me except the NUMBER behind the -vt which I need to forward to the parameter t=

I also dont care what it before the -vt part or what comes after the -vt# (number) part.

Can somebody help me with this?

Thanks in advance

I think that this should do it

RewriteRule	-vt([0-9]+)	/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=$1
