And it works fine for that purpose, but the problem is that if I have a link to http://localhost/news/category/ that link is now broken, because it's also trying to do a redirect on that.
I've tested the above regex in several testing tools, and according to all of them, it should not be seeing news/category/ as a match, and yet on the server that's exactly what it seems to be doing. What can I do to fix this?
