How To Remove Query String From Url Using Htaccess

Once my friend help me to solve this issue, I have written code like that. Where example.com/blog-detail?slug=slugvalue it goes to blog-detail.php and this url example.com/project?slug=test goes to project.php.

RewriteEngine ON
##Checking condition and getting matches in variables to be used while redirect in next rule.
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} \s([^?]*)\?slug=(\S+)\s [NC]
RewriteRule ^ %1/%2? [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(?:[^/]*)/(.*)/?$  blog-detail.php?slug=$1 [QSA,L]

I think it's work for only blog-detail page now i face the issue with this url https://www.example.com/project?slug=test, it redirect me to 404 page, could you help me here.

Answer

With your shown samples, attempts; please try following htaccess rules file. Please make sure to clear your browser cache before testing your URLs.

I have added 2 solutions here, so either use 1st rules set OR use 2nd rules set ONLY ONE at a time please.

1st solution: With 2 different rules set for each php file please try following rules.

RewriteEngine ON
###Rules for blog-detail.php redirect and rewrite.
##Checking condition and getting matches in variables to be used while redirect in next rule.
RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} \s(blog-detail)\?slug=(\S+)\s [NC]
RewriteRule ^ /%1/%2? [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(?:[^/]*)/(.*)/?$  blog-detail.php?slug=$1 [QSA,L]

###Rules for project.php redirect and rewrite.
##Checking condition and getting matches in variables to be used while redirect in next rule.
RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} \s(project)\?slug=(\S+)\s [NC]
RewriteRule ^ /%1/%2? [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(?:[^/]*)/(.*)/?$  project.php?slug=$1 [QSA,L]


2nd solution: A Generic solution with capturing groups to deal with both kind of php files together.

RewriteEngine ON
###Rules for blog-detail.php OR project.php redirect and rewrite.
##Checking condition and getting matches in variables to be used while redirect in next rule.
RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} \s([^?]*)\?slug=(\S+)\s [NC]
RewriteRule ^ /%1/%2? [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/(.*)/?$  /$1.php?slug=$2 [QSA,L]

NOTE1: Please keep both your php files(project.php and blog-detail.php) should be kept along with your htaccess rules file.

NOTE2: For JS/CS rewrite/redirect: You may need to use base tag to fix your js and other relative resources. If you are linking js files using a relative path then the file will obviously get a 404 because its looking for URL path. for example if the URL path is /file/ instead of file.html then your relative resources are loading from /file/ which is not a directory but rewritten html file. To fix this make your links absolute or use base tag. In the header of your webpage add this <base href="/"> so that your relative links can load from the correct location.
