Events not fiering on postback

We're experiencing problems with postback events not firing when using friendly urls. If we cange the config to using regular urls like “default.aspx?id=1“ the events starts firing again. Is this a feature or a “bug” in the product??? If it’s a bug is there a fix for it? We’re using Epi Server 4.60 Cheers

Hello. Is this an upgrade or a new installation ? If this is an upgrade, have you added this code in the header.ascx as said in the release notes ? /Øyvind

I have the same problem. We have several search-pages where the user inputs what to search for and then presses a button. It works find without friendly urls, but when I turn friendly urls on the buttons doesn't perform postbacks. That is, the pages does relaod, but in the pageload the IsPostback is false and the click-event never fires.

 I have <episerver:FriendlyUrlRegistration runat="server"/> in the header.ascx.

 Any suggestions?

Did you solve this problem? We're having the same problem on 4.61 with .NET 1.1.

Markus, if you search your generated HTML-source, can you find "post.aspx"? It should be in a small script and is the output of the FURL tag.

Is this what your refering to?

<script type='text/javascript'>document.forms[0].action='/Sok/Post.aspx';</script>

Our search page is pretty much unchanged from your templates.

I'm having the same problem as the events are not firing up. Every single button has became virtually dead...  I'm currently using .net 2.0 and Episerver 4.61.

Has anyone found a solution for this??

Hugo, does the postback occur at all? Make sure that you have the friendlyurlregistration control registered

Hi Lars.

The postback is posting back to the episerver "unfriendly" url, this recieves a 301 redirect, and is then sent to the friendly url.  the post data is lost as the 301 forces a HTTP GET.

I managed to get it working without the friendly urls, which itself is also a problem.

What do you mean by having the control registered? The friendlyurl assembly is being called from a http handler declared in web.config file.

I just experienced this event not triggering problem after turning on friendlyURLs on an old and unfamiliar 4.61.2 website.

I added  "<episerver:FriendlyUrlRegistration ID="FriendlyUrlRegistration1" runat="server"/>" between the <head> tag and it worked again :) Thanks for the old tip ;)

There was a problem with some other piece of code and the following line helped me out of a pickle. Maybe its redundent after adding the <friendlyurlregistration> but either way, if it helps someone solve a friendly url problem here it is:
