Rewrite on .htaccess not changing get id to a "/"

Hello once again,

I added the code per the instructions and can't seem to get the get id to leave the url. Here's my .htaccess code.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /shirts4mike_local/

RewriteRule ^shirts/$ shirts/shirts.php
RewriteRule ^shirts/([0-9]+)/$ /shirts/shirt.php?id=$1

Here's what outputs to the browser when I select a shirt in the /shirts/ page


the id didnt change to shirts/shirt/103 like the video is teaching. Thank you Im using WAMP

I'm having the same problem as you Derek. The rewrite works for the Apache redirect to shirts.php but my URL after the change to shirt.php is still : http://localhost/shirts/shirts.php?id=101.

Here is my .htaccess doc

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^shirts/$ /shirts/shirts.php

RewriteRule ^shirts/([0-9]+)/$ /shirts/shirt.php?id=$1

I'm on a Macbook so I'm using MAMP for my local host.
