Hi all, so I'm using mod_rewrite with .htaccess to rewrite my urls.

RewriteEngine on

Options -Indexes
RewriteBase /

# Disable rewrite for specific directories 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/admin/
# If the request is not for a valid directory
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
# If the request is not for a valid file
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteRule ^([^/\.]+)/?$ index.php?id=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^([^/\.]+)/([^/\.]+)/?$ index.php?id=$1&newsyear=$2 [L]
RewriteRule ^([^/\.]+)/([^/\.]+)/([^/\.]+)/?$ index.php?id=$1&newsid=$3&newsyear=$2 [L]

That's my .htaccess file. The problem I'm running into is that if I try to access any of the sub directories under admin the rules seem to be interfering. So when I go to admin/news I get /admin/news/?id=admin&newsyear=news and content from my public side instead.

My goal is to block direct access to a couple of directories under the admin section so that you can't access them via the address bar and I ran into this problem while trying to figure that out.

my file structure is

cms_content - which has all the site files in it
index.php - home page 

I want to disable any and all rewrite rules for the admin directory and it's subdirectories and block access to two of the folders inside admin. Thanks.
