    Here's the wordpress part of my htaccess
    It is a wordpress MU

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^old-subsite/(.*)$ /television/$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^old-subsite-2/(.*)$ /radio/$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^/(.*)$/print/ http://www.mydomain.com/$1/ [R=301,L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    So here's the thing -
    On every visit i see in the apache error log that there is an error, something like too many redirects, exceeded limit of 10

    if i change those two $2 to $1, the redirect errors stops, and the home page loads - but other things break, like the subsites' css and scripts won't load. i dodn't even explore farther to see what else might be messed up,

    is there something wrong with my htaccess?

    i don't have the main site in a sub-directory if that matters.

    Just looking over that i should also mention that we changed the names of the subsites. one is now called television, one called radio. that's what's up with those 301s

    at least could someone tell me what the $2 variable refer to?

    i have limited knowledge of htaccess - but i know that if i change those last two $2 to $1 - the site still loads, and the redirect errors stop, but my sub-sites cannot load any css or scripts
