[thelist] mod_rewrite problem... again...

Hi Dustan,

I know NOTHING of those rules, but what it does if you put the last rule
first ? (RewriteRule ^seminars/?$ seminars.php [L])
I could be something like cascading style sheets where the last rule
override previous rules.
I know you said if you remove the last rule it's the same effect (and
it's strange) but try anyway.

To answer your first question as for a clue, it may be because the rule
RewriteRule ^seminars/?$ seminars.php [L] isn't goog enough, are you
sure that "?" means any filename after that, or anything after that ?
But still strange thing is that if you remove the rule, it still has the
same effect, so strange if you ask me.
Perhaps you have already a .htaccess in a parent folder that has this
rule implemented, otherwise, why would it do that if there's no rule
teling it to do it ?

Can anyone give me a clue as to why, when I vist the urls:

This isn't the first time I've encountered such a problem, but I've
never been 
able to fix it before.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks - Dunstan
