htaccess rewrite to make pagination seo friendly

Is it possible to have an htaccess rewrite to make pagination more user friendly? In other words, I want to rewrite




I have tried many different rewrites but cannot seem to get it

i have tried

RewriteRule ^study/([^/])/([^/])/([^/]*)$ /study.php?pageNum_q=$1&totalRows_q=$2&test_id=$3 [L]

but nothing happens. any ideas would be much appreciated. thanks!

That mod rewrite looks close. I think it should be:

RewriteRule ^study/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/([^/]*)$ /study.php?pageNum_q=$1&totalRows_q=$2&test_id=$3 [L]

the mod rewrite wont' update your links for you. It allows you to update your links. Once the mod rewrite is correct, test it by manually entering the new url syntax into the browser: study/4/20/31090

once that works then you can go through and update all of your links to follow that new syntax.
