Apache ModRewrite Rules


When using the nav_xml_format of "rewrite", you need to have to following apache mod_rewrite rules in place for the application navigation to work correctly. You can tweak the rules to suit you application, but there needs to be a catch-all rule that forward all pages through the applications main index.php script. Also, the pass-through for the CSS, images, and Javascript is important as well.

Example:

RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^([^/.]+).html$ index.php?page=$1 [L] RewriteRule ^(themes|css|img|javascript) - [L] RewriteRule .favicon.ico$ - [L] RewriteRule ^.$ index.php [L,qsa]

If you are using Virtual Document Roots with Apache your rules will most likely need to look something like this:

RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^([^/.]+).html$ index.php?page=$1 [L] RewriteRule ^(themes|css|img|javascript) - [L] RewriteRule ^.favicon.ico$ - [L] RewriteRule ^.$ index.php [L,qsa]

You can’t perform that action at this time.
