Now I am cooking on gas. Decided to make a swish template loader to
intergate the previously existing script. But there is a further
mod_rewrite problem.

Here is the current function:

add_action('generate_rewrite_rules', 'ribcage_add_rewrite_rules');
function ribcage_add_rewrite_rules( $wp_rewrite ) {
	$new_rules = array(
		"(artists)/(.*)" => 'index.php?ribcage=1&artist_slug=' .
		"(artists)" => 'index.php?ribcage=1&artist_index=1'

	$wp_rewrite->rules = $wp_rewrite->rules + $new_rules;

Now this obviously passes like this
And that works fine. But how about if one wants to pass more than one
variable. For example:

where my record is the name of a record or whatever. Or whatever. I
presume this has something to do with preg_index();? Perhaps.

Thanks for your continued assistance.

Thanks again
