Does the IIRF change the URLs automatically?

I'm having some trouble here. Is the URL converted automatically or does it need to be "called" with any function. I have the following code:
RewriteRule ^/loja\/(0-9)(/a-zA-Z0-9_-)?(.html)?$ /loja.asp?id=$1&nome=$2

But when i try to reach, for example it simply doesn't work and the URL stays this way.

I'd like it to be rewritten to this way

thank you

I discovered that yes. Because it does not function:

RewriteRule ^/produto\/(0-9)(/a-zA-Z0-9_-)?(.html)?$ /produto.asp?id=$1&prod=$2&cat=$3&subcat=$4

What I am making made a mistake?

thank you

Rewrite != Redirect

The way it works is you display the link in your output, so that the user sees that first and clicks on it.

Then IIRF takes the and changes it to so your backend script processes it like a normal dynamic URL.

Quite right, Rewrite is not the same as Redirect.

I'd like to Point out that IIRF is primarily intended as a Rewrite filter, but it does perform 302 Redirects.
The support for Redirects is not as broad, though.

check the readme for more.
