Hi,

I am htaccess expert.

I think htaccess not working bcoz you are again redirecting url after form submit.

Hey.

Your RewriteRule looks like it should work. Can't see a reason why it shouldn't at least. If you print the $_GET['keyword'] in the index.php file, you get the right value, right?

The code, however, doesn't look quite right.
Try removing the trailing "; from line #5. See if that helps.

And, just out of interest, what is line #5 meant to be doing anyways? I can't really see a reason why you would want to put a JavaScript redirect at that point in the code. (Or anywhere in the code, for that matter.)

You are currently sending your form using the POST method, and adding the value to the URL of the next form submission, which is why you have to submit twice.

If you use the POST method on your form, you need to use the $_POST variable in your code. If you want to use $_GET you need to use the GET method on your form.

So, either change the <form ... method="POST"> of your form to <form ... method="GET"> , or change all $_GET['keyword'] to $_POST['keyword'] .

There is nothing essentially wrong with your code. It shouldn't require more than one submission.
Unless, of course, there is some other part of your code you aren't showing?

But...
Seeing as you are just trying to change:
www.example.com/search/index.php?keyword=string
to:
www.example.com/search/string

I would do this using JavaScript. You can have JavaScript catch the submission of the form, cancel it, and manually redirect the page to the proper URL. Then you would just use a simple RewriteRule to allow the "pretty" version of the URL.
- Note, that if JavaScript is disabled in the client's browser, it doesn't matter. The code would still work. It would just show the "ugly" URL instead of the "pretty " one.

If you had a form like so:

<form id="frmSearch" method="GET" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
    <input name="keyword" type="text" value="<?php echo @$_GET['keyword']; ?>">
    <input type="submit" value="Search" >
</form>

You could use this JavaScript to intercept the form submission, and manually redirect to the proper URL.

window.onload = function() {
    document.getElementById('frmSearch').onsubmit = function() {
        var value = this.keyword.value;
        if(value.length > 0) {
            var dir = this.action.replace(/\\/g,'/').replace(/\/[^\/]*\/?$/, '');
            location.href = dir + "/" + encodeURIComponent(value);
        }
        return false;
    }
}

Then all you would need is a simple RewriteRule to catch the keyword.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /search/
    RewriteCond ${REQUEST_URI} !index\.php
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?keyword=$1 [QSA]
</IfModule>

The first time yo see the form you $_POST doesn't exist
so

<form name="frmSearch" id="frmSearch" method="POST" action="http://localhost/CSV/<?php echo $_POST['keyword']; ?>">

becomes

<form name="frmSearch" id="frmSearch" method="POST" action="http://localhost/CSV/">

not using you url rewrite but just going to index.php
the second time $_POST exits and

<form name="frmSearch" id="frmSearch" method="POST" action="http://localhost/CSV/<?php echo $_POST['keyword']; ?>">

will become

<form name="frmSearch" id="frmSearch" method="POST" action="http://localhost/CSV/foobar">

this whil triger your url rewrite

just use

<form name="frmSearch" id="frmSearch" method="POST" action="http://localhost/CSV/index.php">

and $_POST for the rest of your script
