I'm using the following in .htaccess to strip ".php" off requested URLs:

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET\ /.+\.php(\?[^\ ]*)?\ HTTP/
RewriteRule ^(.+)\.php$ http://www.mydomain.org/$1/? [R=301,L]

However, the admin for this site DOES need the .php displayed - e.g.:


How can I alter my above mod_rewrite rule so that it does NOT activate if the request points at the "admin" directory?

Something to do with:
but I'm not sure how to work that into the above.
