I'm currently using URL Rewriting, but I recently stumbled upon this link on Rerouting, and it looks like it's quite simple yet powerful, and easier to implement than URL Rewriting, a "downside" probably is that configurations are not sitting on a web.config file but rather on the code itself, but I was wondering about the differences, and advantages of using one over the other. Having read some resources about routing, I can see the differences, and now I reformulate my question:
Is it worth it to move from URL Rewriting to Routing? Are there any IIS-specific configurations that should be made? Is it recommended to use it on a ASP.NET WebForms Application, or is it oriented to other kind of projects?
I have a website for which I would like to have clean friendly URL. I am passing query string values in it. I am confused whether to use URL rewriting or URL routing. I have tried doing URL rewriting using URLrewriter.net but couldn't get through. Can any one help me out in deciding what to use and how to go about doing it.
I've been reading many articles and can't seem to get my ASP.NET 4 web forms project to do Routing/URL rewriting.
I have added the following reference to the ASP.NET project:
It then added the following line to the web.config file: <compilation debug="false" targetFramework="4.0"><assemblies><add assembly="System.Web.Routing, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/> </assemblies></compilation> In the global.asax file I want to add the routes, but it is not recognising RouteTable and RouteCollection keywords.
How do I get these to be recognised so that I can create the rules in the global.asax file?
In my website users can create thier own websites by making folder of thier choice like: [URL] Where the folders Pankaj and Adam are storing in database. I just want that when user after creting thier website just clicked or type the address of thier website as [URL] then if the folder with name Pankaj exists in database then the page will open otherwise it gives the http 404 page not found error. And while the address [URL] is opens then i donot want to physically create it on server. My requirement is that i want to open it by the concept of url rewriting/ Routing. Which one concept will be good for this. And can anyone provide some code with example that how can i achieve this easily.
We have a shopping cart product. I am trying to implement ASP.Net 4 URL Routing. The problem I have is with image and other resource folders. I can resolve all the links that are defined within the pages and in the code behind. But, some of the links come from html text entered by users.
Using absolute path is not an option. There are some work arounds. But, I want to avoid those work-arounds, because we don't want to burden the users. Is there a way to achieve this through URL Routing?
E.g. The image path derived from the rewritten page: [URL]
Is there a way to achieve this without any patch work?
I am using ASP.NET 4.0 Web Forms. I learned that, in order to optimize my Web Application for Search Engine, I must implement custom 404 page. But the way Microsoft tell us to implement custom 404 (within Web.Config file), that is not good for SEO. Microsoft says,
But when the page is not found, IIS issue 302 redirect to Page-Not-Found.aspx page which is not good. So, I implemented custom 404 page using Routing technique that is available in ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 and 4.0. I used the following router in Global.asax page
Many hosting companies let you define which page will be shown to the user if the user goes to a page that does not exist. If you define some .aspx page then it will execute and be shown.
My question is, why not use this for routing. since I can parse the users URL and then do a server.transfer to the page I want. I checked and there is no redirect sent to the client and the http headers are HTTP/1.1 200 OK.
So, is this a good idea for servers that don't have ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 or if you are not using MVC?
On PHP Platforms like Worldpress, Joomla, OSCommerce there are plenty of beautifull templates some even free, I cannot find any asp.net cms (the ones in Microsoft Gallery are boring) that has such a variety of templates, am I missing something in my search or do you know some ?
I am trying to implement URL rewriting technique in my Web application.I have found some articles on net 2 rewrite URL. But i m not able to understand. tell me any API or DLL which will take care of all url rewriting techniques in my Web applications.
I have heard something abt UrlRewriter.ddl . But i have not used it yet. provide me the easiest way to do that. If any sample application is there then it will be better ti understand
I'm writing some software that I have to ensure can only be installed on one machine. The plan is to have them download the application. The first time the application is ran, the app will find this unique value on the machine, encode it, and instruct the client to send it to us to get their license number. Then, of course, the value they gave us will be used to construct a license number that will only work on that machine.
A unique value per machine would be the best, but I'd settle for a unique value per the installation of windows (XP) on their machine.
I have a Web application where i have added a reference to a RESTful WCF. I got the WCF url Routing to work in my webapplication by adding Inherits="RestService.Global" to the Web applications Global.asax.
But then i tried to create url Routing for the Web application and it does not work with the Inherits="RestService.Global" in the Global.asax. If i take it away it works fine. Is there a correct way to do this.
I'm trying to create my own CMS and I've gotten a little bit stuck at the stage of URL routing.
I want clean URLs without extensions and I'd like to be able to create and modify them in a web based interface without any messing around with IIS or actual files.
I've seen how to create a static route, but for that I need to go into my Global.asax file and manually add it.I would like to have all of these routes stored in a database so that I can easily modify them later.
Does anyone know how this can be achieved?
Just for extra information, I will be attempting to create a feature so that if a path exists, but is later changed, a 301 redirect is created to the new URL, is this also possible? (My first problem is the main issue, but thought I might ask this as well just in case it makes a difference)
