Using an .htaccess file, I want to make one specific URL have a shorter alias like this:

Original URL:


Alias to the original URL:


Note that both URLs should display the same content.

I think the following would work:

RewriteRule ^/index\.php/rss/rss1klik$ /index.php?option=com_obrss&task=feed&id=2:rss1klik&format=feed&Itemid=160 [L]

But this may look better:

RewriteRule ^/rss/rss1klik$ /index.php?option=com_obrss&task=feed&id=2:rss1klik&format=feed&Itemid=160 [L]

Then the URL would be http://mydomain.com/rss/rss1klik which is shorter/cleaner still.
