I have a couple of rules in my .htaccess file that work OK on their own but not together?
If I comment one out the other works and vise versa?

Your feedback would be appreciated.

RewriteRule ([0-9]+)(.*)\.html$ index.php?page_id=$1

http://www.mywebsite.com.au/index.php?page_id=241



http://www.mywebsite.com.au/item_details/1147/Web-Design.html

RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)\.html$ /index.php?page=$1&id=$2&new_page_title=$3 [L]

You need a RewriteCond for which Rule applies.

I'm not sure what it is you are trying to do?
You are rewriting seo friendly urls to non friendly?
What condition should be there for the two rewrites?

The URL displayed in browser is

http://www.mywebsite.com.au/241/Services/Services.html

I then rewrite it to get the page_id of 241 and pass it to my PHP page which extract content from my MySQL table based on this page id.

I hope that makes sense?

I'm guessing item_detail is the deciding factor

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} item_details
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)\.html$ /index.php?page=$1&id=$2&new_page_title=$3 [L]
RewriteRule ([0-9]+)(.*)\.html$ index.php?page_id=$1
