Redirecting default.aspx to root virtual directory

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a simple ASP.NET 3.5 application running under IIS7 under a virtual directory. So the URL of my app is like http://site.com/app. I want to 301-redirect the request to site.com/app/default.aspx to site.com/app for better SEO. I have to do this redirect through code only, not by any IIS settings. I am unable to do so via code mentioned in this article:http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/072810-1.aspxThe code:if (request.RawUrl.Equals("/default.aspx")) { newUrl = string.Format("{0}://{1}{2}", request.Url.Scheme, request.Url.Authority, request.RawUrl.Remove(request.RawUrl.LastIndexOf("/default.aspx", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase))); context.Response.Status = "301 moved permanently"; context.Response.AddHeader("Location", newUrl); } seems to go into an infinite loop when the application is under a virtual directory. the request.RawUrl property always returns "/default.aspx" even after a 301 redirect causing the infinite loop. How can I fix this issuhttp://forums.asp.net/AddPost.aspx?ForumID=27e?

Content Editor Web Part in default.aspx not copied over.


I have a CEWP with some content in the default.aspx page on one site, and I downloaded and uploaded the default.aspx page to another site collection. But when I display the default.aspx page in the browser the CEWP is not there anymore.

Is the CEWP detached from the default.aspx page and must also be copied over to the new site collection? If so, then where is the CEWP stored?

Thanks for any help.

javascript web service in different virtual directory?

Hi, I've searched far and wide, but can't find out why this is happening. I have a clientside javascript ajax call into a web service that works fine if both the service and the calling page are in the same directory. If I try to move the web service to another virtual directory, I get this: Exception type: InvalidOperationException Exception message: Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in '/js'. Here are the relevant code tidbits for the separate directories attempt.

Authentication with a UNC Virtual Directory.

I'm using IIS7.5 and Windows Authentication through an ISA server. I'm trying to migrate a classic ASP application to ASP.net.We have an internal file server with our department folders on and I'm trying to provide web based access to these. Previously I created a UNC virtual directory to the \\server\departments share, and because ASP classic ran in the context of the authenticated user they could only browse folders they had permission to.What security settings should I now be using for the Application Pool and what settings should I use on the Virtual Directory credentials to ensure security? I'd like the ASP.net page to run in the context of the logged in user, and when the code tries to display a sub-folder they don't have access to it should 'bomb out' as before.Thanks

Map a network share to a virtual directory path @ runtime

Hi Guys Have run into an interesting issue. We have an asp.net web application - we can deploy it over the internet, the secure intranet, local offline user laptops. On of the teams in our organization has a product by which they develop static html reports from the main database. Originally we developed a module in our app which is nothing more than an iframe. Since the html files were pushed under our application virtual directory we used to use java script to set the source of iframe to http://server/app/module/fileXXX.html   Now due to some deployment procedure changes and some security issues the html reports will be deployed on another network server and exposed through a share. Also the share will not have IIS so not virtual directory. So we can no longer set the iframe source through java script to a web file.   Is there any way i can @ runtime map a folder in my application virtual to the network share so that we can browse to these web files like before (Copying the files over from the share to my Virtual Directory is not a very elegant soln.)   Thanks Regards Siddharth

modify/override properties of default sharepoint modal dialogs (ex. editview.aspx) using javascript

Hello all, I would like to know how can I modify (override) some properties of the default sharepoint modal dialogs using Javascript. Ex. the size and location of editview.aspx. I while ago I asked a question about overriding the DialogResult in the display view dialog. I got an answer from Zach which looked like this:             sb.Append("<script type=\"text/javascript\">");             sb.Append(@"window.setTimeout(function () {");             sb.Append(@"if (window.frameElement && typeof(window.frameElement.overrideDialogResult) == 'function')");             sb.Append(@"{");             sb.Append(@"SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.ui.dialog.js', 'SP.UI.DialogResult.OK', function () {");             sb.Append(@"window.frameElement.overrideDialogResult(SP.UI.DialogResult.OK); ");             sb.Append(@"});");             sb.Append(@"}");

Please help Cant edit default.aspx

we had a problem with our sharepoint 2.0 site. .net 3.5 got installed which corrupted the webparts so following microsofts kb we rolled back to .net 2.0 which seemed to work. problem is that the default.aspx seems to be an old version. now when we connect to the site using frontpage and look at the default.aspx it is the correct version but when you browse to the site it loads the old version. IIS is set to pickup default.aspx so it should work. why is it that in frontpage the default.aspx is correct but when we browse to the site it is picking up and old version. im confused.

SSRS 2008- redirect to /Reports virtual directory?

We have just configured a new SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 server. So far, everything is going well, with the exception of one thing: we want anyone who hits the root of the webserver to be redirected to the /Reports virtual directory. So, if the user enters http://servername.domain.com/ it would redirect to http://servername.domain.com/reports. In SSRS 2005, it was easy to configure IIS to do this, but with SSRS 2008, I cannot figure out how to make this change. Help?

Custom Default.aspx SharePoint 2010

I would like to replace the default.aspx with a custom default.aspx.  I have been able to accomplish this with a feature. I am finding the when deployed the new default.aspx page shows up in the following directory C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\ProjectInsightSPMaster_ProjectInsightLayoutFeature\defaultpage I also have a default.aspx located in the following directory.  This is the one that is deployed with the site definition. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\SiteTemplates\PISP    When I browse to a site in IE, it is in fact looking at the correct (new) default.aspx page which is located in the FEATURES directory.  How does SharePoint know to use this default.aspx page instead of the one located in the SiteTemplates directory.  This is confusing to me.  Can you explain?   Is this the correct way of deploying an updated default.aspx?   dave
