I have this url which is working: http://www.example.com/linea?linea=7

It gives me all the products of the category "linea" filtered by the custom parameter "linea", in this case the value is equal to 7

I want to make it more readable so I put this rewrite in the .htaccess file but it's not working:

RewriteRule ^bimbo(/.*)?$ index.php/linea?linea=7 [L,QSA]

It should be called when I type in the url: http://www.example.com/bimbo

Anybody knows why?

No idea why, but it works fine if rewrites are on proxy [P]

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not related to Magento platform. You should ask this question at serverfault.com. There, you'll have better chances of finding the solution.

  • I think it is related because this rewrite is working on a plain system while with Magento it is not

  • I take my vote back then. You should add this detail to the question, otherwise someone else will do the same.

Does this work?

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)linea=7($|&)
RewriteRule ^linea$ /bimbo? [L,R=301]
