This is a friendly call for help to anyone familiar with the apache mod_rewrite script.
I’ve got my Movable Type install on xxx.com and using plugin (tags.app) that handles all tag searches at eg. xxx.com/mt/mt-tags.cgi and of course receives ugly queries in the form of mt-tags.cgi?blog_id=7&tags=$1
I have a blog on the same DH server on a different domain yyy.com and what I’m trying to do is get yyy.com/tag/whatever to rewrite into the xxx.com tag script.
I thought this rewrite would work in an htaccess file placed in the blog’s yyy.com root;
RewriteRule ^tag/(.+) /home/.dhserver/servername/xxx.com/mt/mt-tags.cgi?blog_id=7&tags=$1 [QSA,L]
However, it’s not working. Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong with my syntax or htaccess placement?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer up some advice.
