    OK need an htaccess expert to help with a url rewrite.

    Need to so that the first section of a url is taken if listed in htaccess file and then adds a url info at end.

    For example


    Would rewrite to



    Would rewrite to


    So that i can have one site being mirrored for several regions without having to take a copy of the site for all regions.

    I think that sounds like you want a 301 redirect? if you google it you might get what your looking for...

    Failing that Jaz on here would be your man, if he doesn't pop along and googles no help send him a pm...

    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.cfm
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(.*)/$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://localhost:8888/$1/ [L,R=301]

    RewriteRule uk/powerkites(.*)/$ website/$1/?regionid=uk&sportid=powerkites
    RewriteRule uk/powerkites(.*).cfm$ website/$1.cfm?regionid=uk&sportid=powerkites

    The first part forces a trailing forward slash.
