    Does Umbraco support the usage of route-based pagination instead of using query strings?

    I'm interested in setting up a routing pattern say for search results that would display as


    instead of


    I've read through the documentation on custom routing and the web api and haven't seen anyone else using this.

    I understand I could set up a content finder/url provider script for this, but that seems to be a bit more overhead.

    Is this natively supported as a feature through one of the controllers?

    Thanks in advance!

    Happy to be proven wrong on this but I'm pretty sure there's nothing like that out-of-the-box, your custom content provider would be the best bet as far as I know.

    The good news is that writing a custom content provider isn't all that difficult though!

    A simple option would be to use IIS URL Rewrites to provide this functionality. You can just add these to web.config

    I might not get the syntax quite right here off top-of-my-head, but something like this would probably work:

    <rule name="SearchPaging" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^(.*)/search/(.+)/(\d+)/$" />
      <action type="Rewrite" url="{R:1}/?search={R:2}&page={R:3}" />

    This would rewrite /search/search-term/1/ to /search?=search-term&page=1

    You might need to tweak and test, but that's the fundamentals.
