Is there a way to prevent mod rewrite from breaking down images , script and links

Posted October 30, 2016 1.7k views

my mod_rewrite looks like this

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|css|images|robots\.txt)
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php -f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1.php

RewriteRule ^profile/([A-Za-z0-9-]+) profile.php?u=$1[NC]

This guide is split into two parts. The first sets up an example website and covers a simple rewrite example. The second part contains two more in-depth examples of commonly-used rewrite rules.
