Ok, currently in my .htaccess file I have:

---------------------------------------
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([0-9]+)$ index.php?p=$1 [L]
--------------------------------------

It's designed so that if something like this comes in:

http://url.com/85344

it will take that number, assign it to $p, and then run it through index.php so I can process it.

That works great and I need to keep that process.

Now.... what I would like to do is have any url that does not match that format (url.com/NUMBER) to be forwarded to another domain intact (maintaining its directory structure).

So that:

 http://url.com  is redirected to http://www.newurl.com

and

http://url.com/about  is redirected to http://www.newurl.com/about

and so on... but only if it does not match the url.com/83948 type format.

Is that possible?

Thanks, Chris
