I’ve noticed that on the Sixapart website, their track back URLs look like this:
I’ve been trying to recreate this style of URL using RedirectMatch. I was hoping that it would help me accomplish the following:
if given cleaned up url: http://example.com/trackback/65
redirect to original url: http://example.com/mt/mt-tb.cgi/65
When I ping an entry using the cleaned up URL, Movable Type says that the ping was successful, but checking the trackbacks says it wasn’t. If I paste the original url into my browser, Movable Type will tell me that I need a source url. Using the cleaned up url gives me a 404.
Here is what I have in my .htaccess file:
RedirectMatch 301 ^.*/trackback/(\d+)$ http://example.com/mt/mt-tb.cgi/$1
I put my regex in a perl script and it did what I wanted it to, but for some reason, this isn’t working. Any advice?
