[quote]I thought I could use Remap Subdir to accomplish this. So I mapped
which is the path to their gallery. But it doesn’t work. I’ve waited 40 minutes for the remap to take effect, but I get a 404 not found when I go to www.checkerbox.com/Naughton.
I think I’m using Remap Subdir incorrectly. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?[/quote]
File system paths are not URLs and vice versa. File system paths cannot have a query string or a fragment identifier.
To explain why remember the web site is run by a program called the web server. The web server must convert the URL-path to that of a file system path. Anything can be used as a url-path as long as it converts to something useful somehow.
The solution by sdayman is simple but maybe not the best for your situation. For example if you have many such “shortcuts” you would have to use an .htaccess file and either RedirectMatch directives or the URL Rewriting Enginge (mod_rewrite for short)
RedirectMatch ^Naughton$ http://example.com/photocart/index.php?do=photocart&viewGallery=1085
RewriteRule ^Naughton$ http://example.com/photocart/index.php?do=photocart&viewGallery=1085 [L]
