    Welcome to our support forum Kassim,

    Make sure that you uploaded .htaccess file on your server and installed mod_rewrite on your web hosting.

    Hi Kassim,

    Please create .htaccess file with such code:

    Code:
    # enable mod_rewrite
    RewriteEngine on
    
    # mod_rewrite rules for categories pages
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ index.php?category=$1 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/index([0-9]+).html$ index.php?category=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]
    
    # mod_rewrite rule for suggest link page
    RewriteRule ^suggest-link([0-9]+).html$ suggest-link.php?id=$1 [QSA,L]
    
    # mod_rewrite rules for new links page
    RewriteRule ^new-links.html$ new-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^new-links([0-9]+).html$ new-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]
    
    # mod_rewrite rules for top links page
    RewriteRule ^top-links.html$ top-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^top-links([0-9]+).html$ top-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]
    
    # mod_rewrite rules for popular links page
    RewriteRule ^popular-links.html$ popular-links.php [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^editor-links/index([0-9]+).html$ editor-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]
    
    # mod_rewrite rules for view link page
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/(.*)-l([0-9]+).html$ view-link.php?cat=$1&title=$2&id=$3 [QSA,L]

    # mod_rewrite rules for additional pages
    RewriteRule ^p(.*).html$ page.php?name=$1 [QSA,L]
    
    # mod_rewrite rules for error pages
    RewriteRule ^([0-9]+).htm$ error.php?error=$1 [QSA,L]

    Hello
    Thanks alot for this great script.
    But unfortunately I have the same problem as Kassim had, when I click on a category, I get a 404. I definetly have uploaded the .htacces file, and my webhost (1and1) have mod_rewrite on.
    Any help would be appreciated
    Thank you

    Anton

    P.S: here is my site with the script http://www.my-webs.info

    Hey Anton,

    I have this script working with 1&1.

    All you need to do is find this line in the beginning .htaccess file:
    Code:
    # enable mod_rewrite
    RewriteEngine on
    and change it to:
    Code:
    # enable mod_rewrite
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /

    Hi,

    I have been working all morning on setting up my new directory with your software. I was getting the same 404s and I just wanted to say thanks for maintaining this forum. Nothing is better with new software than having a well maintained forum. Your tip got the problem fixed right away, thank you!
