    htaccess rewrite URL to hide part of the URL

    Hi Guys
    I need to to hide a part of a URL,
    I am using wordpress, and my htaccess file looks like this.

    PHP Code:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase 
    /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond 
    %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule 
    . /index.php [L]
    </
    IfModule>
    # END WordPress 
    The end digits of my Url is created by a third party plugin and represents a unique user.
    To make this look nicer for the user we would love to hide ?rid=

    Original Url:

    http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/?rid=204000

    and I need to hide ?rid=

    so that the Url looks like this:

    http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/204000

    I have tried varying things within the hatches but canít seem to see any changes regardless of what i change.

    Kind regards
    Matt

    Wrong Forum, you need to be in the Server Management Forum.

    ** Moved post **
    --> JavaScript Frameworks like JQuery, Angular, Node <--
    ... and please remember to wrap code with forum BBCode tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...

    Looking at this query, your issue is not turning the URL from Original Url: http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/?rid=204000 to http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/204000
    is as simple as just writing the url: http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/204000

    Your rewrite isn't rewriting your internal URL to look like the desired URL but you are taking the desired URL and "Rewriting" it to map it to the original URL

    So when you get the URL http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/204000 all you need from this is the 204000 and the http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/ part of the URL and you use URL Rewrite to call from the server the following data at the URL request http://rpmdigital.com/gdpr-update/?rid=204000

    So in simple terms, you have got it backwards.
