Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^([a-z]*)$ [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.mysite.com/$1?aid=%1 [R=301,L]


This should work for any URL on your site ending with "?aid=abcd".

You mean it should work with any url ending with "?abcd" as the idea is to redirect those urls to the other...

Just another question, would it work too for:

?abcd2

to
?aid=abcd2

I mean with letters and numbers?

It should be changed by the following way:

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^([a-z0-9]*)$ [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.mysite.com/$1?aid=%1 [R=301,L]

The new rule you provide is also good for:


?abcd2
?abc2d
?a2bcd

I mean no matter the order letter number?
