    php + mod_rewrite + friendly urls

    Hey guys, I need some help with mod_rewrite. I'm completely clueless how to set this up.

    I know it has to go in .htaccess, but thats about it.

    I have URLs like the following:
    index.php?id=page page is page.php

    And I would like them to be

    I use this for the id=blah bit:

    $id = $_GET['id']; if (!isset($id)) { $id = 'home'; } 
    if (strstr($id,'/')) { $id = 'no'; } 
    if (!file_exists($id . '.php')) { 
    echo('404 <b>' . $id . '.php</b> could not be found!'); 
    else { 
    include($id . '.php'); 
    Would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me.

    Note: I tried editing but it didn't work.

    I was looking around and found this, which according to the example works how I want it to.

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^id/([^/\.]+)/?$ index.php?id=$1 [L]
    It *does* work, the only thing is it completely ignores my css. So My guess is its actually redirecting to the page, instead of including it. So how would I make it include it, so it works normally?

    mod_rewrite doesn't do includes -- just redirections based on URLs.

    Suggest you do some troubleshooting in your index.php file.
