I need to know how to write a mod rewrite rule for this example.

This is the original url.
/store.php?sale=first_variable_here&page=second_variable_here

Open in new window


This will be what the new url looks like.
/store/sale/first_variable_here.htm?page=second_variable_here

Open in new window


I tried but it did not work.  
RewriteRule store/sale/(.*)\.htm?page=(.*)\$ store.php?sale=$1&page=$2

Open in new window



Thanks

As the "query string" from the calling url is unaltered, simply append it to your rewrite using QSA directive (query string append).
RewriteRule ^/?store/sale/(.*)\.htm$  /store.php?sale=$1  [QSA,NC,L]

Open in new window

In the above example

www.yourdomain.com/store/sale/first_variable_here.htm?page=second_variable_here 

will rewrite to:

./store.php?sale=first_variable_here&page=second_variable_here

Thanks a ton.  I did some more research on all the things you added to my code and I understand a lot more now. Worked perfect.
