Try this

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^edit/id/([0-9]+)/?$ edit.php?id=$1 [NC,QSA,L]

It works but my styles.css and other images doesn't load coz the location has changed. – cloud 9 Nov 14 '11 at 3:26
do you have other rules? what is the URL for the style.css? – Book Of Zeus Nov 14 '11 at 3:31
I added a variable in my includes like <?php echo $currentdir;?>/niceforms.js but niceform.js generates img/0.png and img/0.png don't load. – cloud 9 Nov 14 '11 at 3:38
and img/0.png is located in : edit/id/? – Book Of Zeus Nov 14 '11 at 3:40
This should be the location of "img/0.png" in my php output.My img folder is the same location as edit.php img/0.png but the result is edit/id/img/0.png – cloud 9 Nov 14 '11 at 3:45

In case you need redirect from:


then in the beginning of .htaccess, insert:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /$1? [R=301,L]

## If WordPress is not installed in root folder, then edit the fourth line like this
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /YOUR-WORDPRESS-DIRECTORY/$1? [R=301,L]

p.s. if you want other redirection from QUESTION MARK, then use: http://stackoverflow.com/a/15680832/2377343
