postbacks and url rewriting


Hi all,

I am using Intelligencia url rewriter for my project and have run in a small problem. I have a regular expression like

<rewrite url="~/(.+)/(.+)/(.+).aspx" to="~/Article.aspx?a=$3&amp;s=$2&amp;p=$1"/>

so a page request like

/parent/category/articlename.aspx is interpreted as /Article.aspx?a=articlename&s=category&p=parent.

This above is all fine, but now when I do a postback (a login block), it picks up the url /Article.aspx?a=articlename&s=category&p=parent and interprets as /Article.aspx?a=article&s=category&p=parent.

Now, how can I make sure that on the postback, it still throws back the original url /parent/category/articlename.aspx so that the url is properly interpreted?

How to access querystring values from javascript after url rewriting?

Hi mates, I´m using ASP.NET 3.5 with C#. The problem that I have is the following. I´m using url rewriting (in the Global.asax file) and people see urls like this:http://localhost:1855/uk/london but after I rewrite the urls I work internally with querystring values and the urls become somehting like this:http://localhost:1855/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1In my Global.asax after I create the proper url with the querystring values I just apply it with the following sentence (this is an example):Context.RewritePath("/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1");The problem is that from javascript using the following function I access the first url and not the second:function getQueryVariable(variable) { var query = window.location.search.substring(1); var vars = query.split("&"); for (var i = 0; i < vars.length; i++) { var pair = vars[i].split("="); if (pair[0] == variable) { return pair[1]; } } } I need to access the querystring values because I need to load values in a textbox using jQuery.autocomplete and Web Services. Can anyone tell me how to access the rewritten url to get the querystring values?Thanks in advance mates

Problems with url rewriting when using the ASP.NET development server

I've inherited a website which has been developed for IIS server. The hyperlinks in this website have a href attribute with the human readable form that appears in the url in the browser's searchbar. In Application_BeginRequest(), there is a method which will convert this into the acutal location of the page within the website's file structure.This works fine when running the website on IIS. However, when I am using the ASP.NET development server, the links do not work and I get a page not found error.I have noticed that Application_BeginRequest() is never called for the links when run using the ASP.NET development server. I have read that the ASP.NET development server will not serve pages that are outside of the application scope (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/58wxa9w5%28VS.80%29.aspx), as the human-readable urls would appear to be when first processed by the server.Bear in mind that the urls in the aspx files are in human readable form, so I can't just use ResolveUrl(), because they don't correspond to files in the internal file structure until they have been re-written.I want to get the website running on the ASP.NET development server so that I can test it locally on my machine, which I can't really do if I can't get the url re-writing to work. Is there a way around this problem?

Ajax in subdomain not working

I have a website in a hosting service. There is a virtual directory working as a subdomain like "http://subdomain.website.com" .  After working a lot figuring out paths, everything works fine except AJAX. There is no error thrown but the updatepanel, calendar and nothing else works. I does full postbacks. I have tried copying the complete AspNetAjax directory to the root and setting the scriptpath to "http://www.website.com/AspNetAjax/". The web.config contains the assemblies and a tag prefix.Any suggestions will be appreciated !Humberto

asp:Menu causes sys undefined with URL rewriting

Hi, I'm developing using the new ASP.NET 4 and I ran into the following issue. When I put a Menu control into the web form, the menu causes the following code to generate just before the closing </form> tag:<script type='text/javascript'>new Sys.WebForms.Menu({ element: 'NavigationMenu', disappearAfter: 500, orientation: 'horizontal', tabIndex: 0, disabled: false });  As long as I don't use URL Routing, the page compiles and loads properly. But when I try to use URL Routing on the website, VS starts to throw "Sys is undefined" exception. However, this does not happen always. Most frequently it happens when I change somenting positioning-related in the CSS file, but sometimes the exceptions seems just arbitrary. I'm not sure which parts of code could help, if any. I would appreciate any help. Thx

URL Rewriting

Hi,   Hoping someone can help point me in the right direction here. I am building a custom application, it allows users to sign up and create an account and add details. What I would like to achieve is that when the page is visited: www.blahblah.com?userID=2 The resulting URL to the user is www.blahblah.com/RichardJones.aspx or www.blahblah.com/RichardJones I've had a look at url re-writing posts button cannot find anything specific to this scenario. Does anyone know of any good information sources where I could find out how to do this? Thanks in advance

SharePoint subdomain URL to webapplication


I have tried severl things to get this to work.  I have found a lot of good information but nothing about my particular situation. 

I have a run of the mill html page running in IIS off port 80 (for this example using url as http://www.thesite.com).  I have host(a) www setup.  I have SharePoint installed and two web applications .. one running off port 50009 and one running off of port 50010 (lets say internal names of http://internalsite1:50009 and http://internalsite2:50010) .  I am trying to subdomain the sites so I can access them over the internet as http://internalsite1.thesite.com and http://internalsite2.thesite.com).  I followed several instructions on how I could do this but never had any luck, most example assume you have a sharepoint site running off of 80 already.

The most promising solution I found was to create a new host(a) for the subdomain on the dns, and the AAM the full URL to Internet zone in SharePoint for the web app.  When I do this however and then try and access the site it just brings me to the top level http://www.thesite.com even though the url will r

is it posible to add a site to SubDomain


Hi is it possible to add a complete site to a subdomain.


I am trying to add ticketdesk so i can handle support tickets, so is this possible


or would it still mean merging ticket desk into the same solution?

or is there another option  like http://www.myMainSite.com/support

which would be easier to implement

I could of course just by a domain with the name http://www.myMainSite-support.com but i didnt think this would look as professional.

How to make UserName as Subdomain.



I have a requirement related to subdomains. Here are the details.

I am using .NET 4.0, IIS7, ASP.NET 4.0. I have an web application hosted as "mycompany.com". I have some clients, say client1, register at my site. I want to give him a

URL like http://client1.mycompany.com. Similarly for client2 URL will be http://client2.mycompany.com

http://mycompay.com has provision to allow new clients to register at my site. Any new client should able to view his area by using URL http://clientN.mycompany.com.

This is very similar to Microsoft's spaces.live.com; Each individual having hotmail/live ID can access his spaces. Ex: http://ypradeep23.spaces.live.com

Can you please guide me in design this solution. Thank you inadvance
