problem with a 301 redirect

Hi Ray

Am having a problem with redirtects on a site. Have set up the redirect but when it goes through to the target page, it appends ?perm=aluminium and the resulting page 404's

I did have this problem before ( which you helped with, but the solution was based on 1 redirect whilst this issue is affecting all the redirects using the attached target page in the redirect.

Have attached the htaccess and links to the pages etc in the PM

I think the problem is that you have two rules that would effect that url.

So you are going to:

The first rule that satisfy's that is:
RewriteRule ^products/(.*)$ product_category_results_s.php?perm=$1 [NC,L,QSA,T=application/x-httpd-php]

That rule adds the url parameter, but since it is a mod rewrite it doesn't actually change the url. Then it hits your rule:
Redirect 301 /products/aluminium

That is doing the redirect to change the url in the browser but now it has the added parameter.

It might be as simple as changing the order of them in the .htaccess file. You may have to use the alternate syntax for 301 redirects and move them above that way.
RewriteRule ^products/aluminium$ [L,R=301,NC]

I had to use the alternative syntax as you suggested and they needed to be above the dynamic url rewrites
