Home .htaccess rewriting URLs that don't exist
 Currently, I'm working with some guys that love short URLs for marketing purposes when posting to social media. They have https://www.example.com/folder/subfolder For their marketing, they would like https://www.example.com/mysuperbuzzword which would point to the first URL but in the browser, you would still see the shorter URL. My first thought was "I'll just add a rewrite rule in the .htaccess" Something like Redirect 301 /mysuperbuzzword /folder/subfolder/ which would work but then the URL changes. I did some reading and discovered the [P] flag. Then I tried this: RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/vanityurl RewriteRule ^(.*)\$ /folder/subfolder [P] The issue I have now is that because /vanityurl doesn't exist, instead of rewriting, I just get a 404 error. I've been testing my rule using a .htaccess rule checking tool and the URL it spits out looks correct, but again, I just get a 404. Also, if you use the flag [PT] the resource is found but the URL is changed in the address bar.
