Mod_Rewrite And Redirects For Existing Indexed Links

Recommended Posts

I am modularizing a existing site as discussed in Chapter 2.  All is working fine but I cannot seem to find the correct rewrite script for my .htaccess relative to rewriting (or forwarding existing) links that have been indexed in search engines. An example:


http://www.example/productdetail.php?id=100 (as indexed by Google) should display as




but instead is displaying in address bar as


http://www.example/product-detail/?id=100 (and obviously no page is found)


My current .htaccess is:


RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/$ /index.php?p=$1[L]

RewriteRule (product-detail)/([^/]*)/$ /index.php?p=$1$id=$2


I also have a URL redirect for this page:

Redirect 301 /productdetail.php http:www.example.com/product-detail/


Any assistance would be appreciated.
