I'm using a simple mod rewrite piece of code in an .htaccess file to set my first page with a simple url (http://www.site.com)

The code is:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/.+/
RewriteRule ^(index(.php|.html|.htm))?$ /modules/mastop_publish/ [L]

This seems to work great, and I mean great with Mastop Publish, AMS, and a few others. I'm trying to get it to work with the Content Module, which still displays the long URL.

Does anyone understand what the problem may be. It's a slight bit over my head at this point.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have this sample code for avoid hotlinking (but I have not tried )


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} .*jpg$|.*gif$|.*png$|.*zip$|.*pdf$|.*rar$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !yoursite\.com [NC]
#RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !friend-site\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !google\. [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !search.php\?query=cache [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(gif|jpg|pdf|zip|rar)$http://your-tricky-image.jpg [R,NC]

Line with "friend-site" is to allow a partner site link your images.
Line with "google" is to allow google to show your images.
Line with "your-tricky-image.jpg" put any image (1600x1200 o more recommended ).

If you don't want to show any image you can change this to:

RewriteRule (.*) /your-code.php?param=$1

I hope this is usefull!

Re: htaccess rewrite trick

and if i put that kind of image user can click on it ?and to enter my site?!That was my question...thanks..
p.s:i`ve just tested if you put this:
RewriteRule .*\.(gif|jpg|pdf|zip|rar)$http://yoursite.com/tricky-image.jpg [R,NC]
It will show the image but when you click on it it will not go to yoursite.com will open an new window and display the picture tricky-image more larger...
And i`ve tested with :
RewriteRule .*\.(gif|jpg|pdf|zip|rar)$http://www.yoursite.com [R,NC]
If you put like this it will display an big X blank image and if you click open new window with an big X ...so normaly i need when it shows that big X or that image not to open an new window with that image or the big X i need to open an new window to www.mysite.com ....any solution for this?!
Or how to put an redirect on htacces from that trickimage.jpg when someone try to click on it to redirect it to www.mysite.com ?!This maybe an solution too but how to do it more exactly?!
