Put "http://www.mysite.com/new/about-us" in your page(s). Then create a rewrite rule in your.htaccess to do the transformation:

RewriteRule ^new/([^/]+)$ new/page.php?id=$1

Open in new window

Do you have mod_rewrite enabled, and in which .htaccess file did you place the rule?

it has to be enabled in apache. Are you using a control panel? What level of access do you have to your server?

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteRule ^new/([^/]+)$ page.php?id=$1

Open in new window

This works perfect if you are in the root folder, if not just remove the "new/" and it will work...thanks
