Topic: Mod-Rewrite - step 7 mod_rewrite2mod.txt

Hi,

I'm trying to install 'mod_rewrite2mod.txt' for cutenews but can't find the code to replace in step 7 in 'inc/shows.inc.php'... I pasted my code below from shows.inc.php... can someone help me in the right direction? Many thanks.

7. Open inc/shows.inc.php and find this:
######################################
echo "<script type="text/javascript">window.location="$PHP_SELF?subaction=showfull&id=$id&ucat=$ucat&archive=$archive&start_from=$start_from&$user_query";</script>";
######################################

replace with this:
######################################
echo "<script type="text/javascript">window.location="$PHP_SELF";</script>";
######################################

My 'inc/shows.inc.php' looks like below:

<div class='codetop'>CODE</div><div class='codemain' style='height:200px;white-space:pre;overflow:auto'>
<?PHP


do{ // Used if we want to display some error to the user and halt the rest of the script

$user_query = cute_query_string($QUERY_STRING, array( "comm_start_from","start_from", "archive", "subaction", "id", "ucat"));
//######################################
// For Mod Rewrite
//######################################
if($user_query != "")
$user_query = "&".$user_query;
//Mod rewrite
