Rewrite Rule Challenge

What's wrong with my code? I get an error: Something was wrong with your htaccess file. Please try again.

RewriteEngine  On   
RewriteRule ^flavors/$ /all_flavors.php
RewriteRule ^/flavors$ flavors/

1 Answer

Hi Gabriel,

Try the following:

RewriteRule ^flavors$ /flavors/ [R=301]

This is saying that if "flavors" doesn't have the trailing slash then permanently redirect to "flavors" with the trailing slash.

Thanks Jason, that worked great. I just forgot the redirect.
