# The miracle of mod_rewrite

Moved a bunch of stuff around today, before I saw that some folks (including Robert Daeley, author of PHPosxom) had linked to my post about PHPetal earlier. The permalink for the original post was https://www.jackbaty.com/index.php?entry=/geek/untitled.txt. In the meantime I renamed the /geek directory to /dev. This of course broke the links. I’m learning the joys of mod_rewrite and this little bit fixed things right up.

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^entry=/geek/untitled.txt
RewriteRule ^(.*)\$
/index.php?entry=/dev/untitled.txt [R]


Cool!
