my old url is - http://www.mysite.com/search.php?search=tape

Then at /htaccess I - "Redirect 301 /search.php http://www.mysite.com/dictionary"

I then rewrite again in /dictionary - "RewriteRule ^word/(.*) dictionary/index.php?search=$1"

Result: http://www.mysite.com/dictionary/?search=tape

I am trying to get the URL as - "http://www.mysite.com/dictionary/word/tape"

Now the rewrite at the /dictionary does work, if I manually type in a URL like "http://www.mysite.com/dictionary/word/tape" it works. But from the redirects that come in it does not.

I hope this makes sense, because I have confused myself :)

my self also confused as to what you want to achieve

Can you post what is there in your .htaccess as is ?


And what i understand is you want the following url  

http://www.mysite.com/search.php?search=tape

to go to

http://www.mysite.com/dictionary/word/tape

I got the same impression as babuno5.  To implement that, try this:

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} search=([a-zA-Z]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?search.php$ /dictionary/word/%1 [R=301,NC]

Open in new window

End the rule with a '?':

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} search=([a-zA-Z]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?search.php$ /dictionary/word/%1? [R=301,NC]

Open in new window
