    I'm not sure if # can change. That's a comment line in .htaccess along with perl.

    http://www.smsjunky.com/tones/y/uk_top_40_polyphonic.php

    type of URLs also need a line added to .htaccess. Post the original URL for those links and I can post the code.
    Post the php URL to that.

    If you did for example

    RewriteRule ^tones/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+)/([^.]+).html$ polyphonic_tones.php?mmchar22_1=$1&mmstart22_1=$2&mmsection22_1=$3&mmphonetype22_1=$4&mmmoreinfo22_1=$5&mmpart22_1=$6&mmsearch22_1=$7&mmstype22_1=$8&mmcat22_1=$9&mmcountry22_1=$10 [L]

    you would end up with domain.com/tones/y/1/////////

    So if those don't ever have anything in the URL just take them out of the links if you can.

    http://www.smsjunky.com/phone_compatibilty.php
    to
    http://www.smsjunky.com/phone_compatibilty.html

    RewriteRule ^([^.]+).html$ $1.php [L]

    Should cover them all. if it messes up some URLs,

    RewriteRule ^phone_compatibilty.html$ phone_compatibilty.php [L]

    for each file.

    In the script, search for mmsearch1_1, mmpart1_1 and so on and take the extra pert of the URLs out. mod_rewrite can't take them out of the links! Only the script can by being changed.

    The FAQ has been updated with info from replies added to it. And I've placed it in the Public Domain. If you know info that's missing, you can add to the FAQ. It uses wiki.

    great,

    one litle thing a lot of people fall flat on is when rewriting directory style e.g. domain.com/a/b/b/c a lot of people miss their pics and graphs, due to the fact that these have not been made absolute links or been coded apropriately.

    Thought I mention it

    Post the complete .htaccess file code you got. The left part before the first $ tells the server how you want it. That part tells it where the file is at.
