Hi Francis,

thank you for this really good explanation.

I tried your examples and they work very well.
In the next days I will test it more extensive.

Yes, that's true, but isn't it also that at the apache server this folders
and files are just excluded for rewrite?
In my config I set folders with .htaccess only at the moment. 
location ^~ /config/			{ deny all; }
location ^~ /filearchive/		{ deny all; }
location ^~ /track/				{ deny all; }
location ^~ /upload/			{ deny all; }

This is comming from some old versions of the CMS I believe, were not always
aliases were set up.
At the moment, when you create a article, the CMS sets an dummy alias by
In the "old" time, there were urls like this index.php?id=
Now there are normaly such urls index.php?dummyalias only.

Is there a need for the $uri/?
I had read this is for subfolder only. This CMS need the rewrite just for
the root folder and index.php.

Thank you so fare for this quick help.
