You can conditionally redirect as in the example below. Once the conditions are met the files are dealt with via a script. Hope this helps.

#Condionally redirect old  pages via script if not the index.html or state 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/venues/index\.html$  [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/venues/states/.*$  [NC]
RewriteRule ^venues/(.*) scripts/redirect-v.php?d=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
RewriteRule ^venues/states/(.*) scripts/redirect-state.php?d=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

Open in new window


// Redirect old links
$file = $_GET['d'];
$file = strtolower($file); 

// Catch special cases that had -and- substituted for &
$file = str_replace("-and-", "___", $file);
$file = str_replace("-", "_", $file);

// Catch old pages that end with .htm and .shtml
//$file = str_replace(".htm", ".html", $file);
$file = str_replace(".shtml", ".html", $file);
//$file = str_replace(".php", ".html", $file);

$new_url = 'http://www.site.com/venue/' . $file;
//echo "<br /> New URL is " . $new_url ;

// redirect
$ext = substr(($file), -4); 
//echo "<br /> Extension is " . $ext ;

if ($ext=="html")
//	echo "<br />  Redirect old page. "; 
//	echo "<br /> URL ends in html. Redirect to ". $new_url; 
	header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
	header('Location: ' . $new_url);
else {
//	echo "<br />  Redirect page. "; 
//	echo "<br /> no extension - Append _tickets.html to url. Redirect to ". $new_url; 
	header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
	header('Location: ' . $new_url);

In my script I am checking for files that ended in .htm and .shtml. I then replaced those with .html. Then I back up 4 characters (i.e. html) and Append _tickets.html to the file.

You can do something similar keying on the text "page".
