I would appreciate help with a RewriteRule.

This is nearly identical to other rules I use that work just fine, but something here isnít right.

I have addresses that look like these:

Code:
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/?page=1&mode=pause
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/?page=5&mode=play
which call the local index file, thus doing the same as:

Code:
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/index.php?page=1&mode=pause
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/index.php?page=5&mode=play
and I want to be able to use short-form URLS like this:

Code:
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/1/pause
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/5/play
In the local folderís htaccess I have this:
Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(\d*)/(pause|play)$ ?page=$1&mode=$2  [NC,L]
but that changes the sample short-form URLS into
Code:
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/pause
http://mysite.com/reports/1103-march-17/play
in the address bar (with the "1/" or "5/" removed), and the browser returns "Not FoundĒ.

This seems a simple substitution ... but ... ?

Thank you.
