hi guys, well i am using .htaccess in my website to make SEO friendly urls..
the urls are supposed to look like this:
http://localhost/home
or
http://locahost/singup

it is working nicely.. the problem is when i came to makin forms..
how should i submit my forms??
the .htaccess takes all the requests as a files and redirects all the calls to index.php
here is my .htaccess file that i made:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?url=$1 [L]

and here is my form:

<u><center><h1>Sign Up!</h1></center></u>

                    <form method="post" action="signup/process/">
                        <label for="Name">First Name:</label>
                        <input type="text" name="Name1" id="Name" />

                        <label for="Name">Last Name:</label>
                        <input type="text" name="Name2" id="Name2" />

                        <label for="City">Email:</label>
                        <input type="email1" name="Email" id="Email" />
                        <label for="City">Re-enter Email:</label>
                        <input type="email2" name="Email2" id="Email2" />
                        <label for="Email">New Password:</label>
                        <input type="password" name="Password" id="Password" />
                        <label for"I am">I am:</label> 
                        <select name="iam" id="select" style="height: 50px;">
                            <option id ="select">Male</option>
                            <option id="select">Female</option>
                        </select>
                        <label for="birthday">Birthday</lable>
                            <table>
                                <tr><td><select name="bday" id="select_small">
                                            <option>Day:</option>
                                            <option>1</option>
                                        </select></td>
                                    <td>
                                        <select name="bmonth" id="select_small">
                                            <option>Month:</option>
                                            <option>January</option>
                                        </select>
                                    </td>
                                    <td><select name="byear" id="select_small">
                                            <option id ="select">Year:</option>
                                            <option id="select">1990</option>
                                        </select>
                                    </td>
                                </tr>

                            </table>


                            <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" class="submit-button" />
                    </form>

I'd send the form to signup.php and then redirect back to your modified url page. No need to send form through index.php

page. No need

it would work? let me try that..
thanks for the reply!
