    UmbracoUrlAlias scenatio with .ext and querystring

    Hi,

    I've got a scenario using the UmbracoUrlAlias that I can't wrap my head around. Or rather, I can't figure out how it's supposed to work.

    Long story short, I want to redirect all inbound traffic from: www.example.com/_pages.asp?page=100&ID=10&NAME=whatever (A)

    to: www.example.com/somewhere (B)

    I want to use UmbracoUrlAlias so that our editors will be able to map _pages.asp to /somepage.

    As far as I can tell there is two problems with that.

    1) ISAPI will hijack the request going to .asp, I guess I simply can uninstall it.

    2) The receiving page will have the querystring in the request.

    So. How would I be able to use UmbracoUrlAlias to map A to B? Is it even possible?

    If not, what would you suggest as a better alternative?

    How about trying a URL Rewrite?

    Or, if you have too many pages, and are moving from an old site to a new one, use ContentFinder/URL Provider, especially if you can put match your old pages to your new ones (maybe in a lookup table).

    Well. The idea is to make the editors own that configuration. So, no, that's unfortunately not an option.

    Also, there isn't a structure to the rewrites. A batch would be nice, but impossible :(

    Perhaps you need both an URL rewrite and a ContentFinder.

    The ContentFinder could have a global hashtable to match the two fields up, so you wouldn't have to do that on every page load, and would strip out the querystring.
