    mod_rewrite question

    Hey, I have recently been working on a mod_rewrite solution to allow me to have cleaner url's.
    I am trying to keep it simple and as such have the following setup;

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on

    #Rewrites
    RewriteRule ([^-]*)$ index.php?page=$1

    The problem is it also redirects forums such as /includes/ etc. Is there a way to exclude certain folders from a mod_rewrite like the one i showed above?

    Thanks for any help.

    I think what you are after is RewriteBase, which restricts the rule to a particular sub-directory.

    I suppose you want SEFU(Search-Engine Friendly URLs)...
    This here is a fantastic example, and I have something similar implemented on my designs..

    Neat and clean way to do it, without putting extra load on apache with having to rewrite urls!
