    Deep links without hash # (or, split hyperlinks in email)

    Lewags

      Hi all,

       

      Is it at all possible to create deep links without the # character in there?

       

      The thing is that a link containing a # send in an email breaks after the part with the #.

      I.e. only the first part of the link is recognized as a hyperlink (mail on mac) which leads to

      confused customers. Besides, I'm wondering whether SEO is influenced by the # in the url's...

       

      So, the split hyperlink in the email is my real problem. Any solution to that is greatly appreciated.

       

       

      To solve this issue I've tried to mod rewrite a link such as www.mysite.com/#id/12345 but for some reason the page is not found:

       

      RewriteRule ^mysite.com/([A-Za-z0-9]+)$ http://localhost:8888/dev/bin-debug/index.html\%23$1 [NC,L]

       

      The idea being that

       

      http://localhost:8888/dev/bin-debug/mysite.com/12345

       

      should redirect to

       

      http://localhost:8888/dev/bin-debug/index.html#12345

       

      What I get is: The requested url was not found on this server.

       

      A rewrite rule without the additional parameter 12345 does work and shows the swf properly:

       

      RewriteRule ^mysite.com$ http://localhost:8888/dev/bin-debug/index.html [NC,L]

       

       

       

      Best regards,

      Romano
