    Regular Expressions

    apocalipsis19 Level 1

      Hi Community!

       

      This is not exactly a CF 8 question but rather a question about regular expressions. I am currently working on the httpd.conf file in ISAPI URL re-writing and I am having a hard time getting rid of text that shows after a "?" in a URL.

       

      This is my regular expression:

       

      RewriteRule ^/robots\.txt.*$ /\?.* [L,R=301]

       

      Please note that i the URL to be re-written I am using \?.* so it reads the ? with its alternate meaning opposed to meaning "pass a parameter"

       

      If I have the url:

       

      www.url.com/?blahblah

       

      It redirects to my homepage but it keeps the text blahblah in the re-written URL. This is obviously going to cause problems with the indexing of my pages and the "spidering" process.

       

      Does anybody have some thoughts?

       

      Thanks!

       

      Ysais.
