regex help for mod_rewrite
ok, first of all I would like to say I'm a regex IDIOT!. That being said, here's what I got:
RewriteRule ^/([^/\.]+)/deals/([^/\.]+)/?$ index.php?key=$1&permalink=$2
What I'm trying to do is match the following url request paths:
The string will always start with /
The string may or may not end with /
The "key-goes-here" part will always be alphanumeric and - (hyphens to separate words)
The "permalink-goes-here" part will always be alphanumeric and - (hyphens to separate words)
Thanks in advance

Try something like this:
I highly recommend you look into REGEX. I avoided it for the longest time but it, truthfully, saves a lot of time and effort while programming to match user input. I found the following two things to be very helpful resources:Code:^[A-Za-z0-9\-]+/deals/[A-Za-z0-9\-]+[/]?$
Hope this helps!
