I'm making a dynamic image for a forum that doesn't allow dynamic images.
I tried using .htacess to redirect all *.png files to image.png… which works perfectly, but from here I can't seem to be able to get the filename of the .png that was requested to generate the content.
user puts in banana.png
htaccess forwards to image.php
I need a way of getting that banana into my php script.
$_SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"] just returns that of the PHP file.
Is there a way of redirecting it to
image.php?=bananana for example?
Try this one. You should be able to access the image path at $_GET['image']. Added ability to preserve existing query string if need be, (but the image key would obviously be overridden).
If you are still getting 404, I don't know what to say. I tested this and it works for me.
