Need to use Mod_Rewrite But It's Not Working - tried everything (1 post)

    On any other site this is a piece of cake...however with WP, I cannot for the life of me get this to work. I have tried everything and anything I can think of and or even research. I absolutely 100% need to get this working properly.
    Example: page-language.php?lang=english is rewritten with /language-learning-software/learn-how-to-speak-english to make it SEO friendly

    my .htaccess is as follows:

    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^language-learning-software/learn-how-to-speak-([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ /wp-content/themes/bizway/page-language.php?lang=$1 [N]
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    I have hostgator, if that helps at all. I have sppoken with support for over an hour and nothing came from it except they cannot change "AllowOverride" to "All" - I feel this might solve it but I guess it's not possible since it's a "shared" host.

    Is there any plugins that can pull this off? Any way to customize permalinks? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.
