Apache rewrite rule help - dynamic url to static page


I'm having an issue with a rewrite rule I'm trying to create in a .htaccess file:

Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond   %{QUERY_STRING} =t=1234
RewriteRule   ^showthread\.php$ /static.htm? [R=302,L]
Specifically, I'm trying to make requests for:

forum.example.com/showthread.php?t=1234

Redirect internally to static.htm

I'm trying to do this in order to stop any database queries from occuring for this one forum thread.

However, everytime I try to implement this, .htaccess breaks the forum completely.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Michael

What about this:

Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /showthread.php$
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^t=1234
RewriteRule ^showthread\.php$ /static.htm [R=302,L]
If you want it to work when t is any number, not just 1234, then:
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^t=[^&]+

That doesn't work either, for reasons unknown to me. It causes the entire site to break.

Do you have any other rules in there? Actually, do any rules work? Maybe you don't have mod_rewrite enabled...
