LinkItem and GetMappedHref



I'm using LinkItems to display links to documents in a page panel and building the anchor dynamically using an asp HTMLAnchor control. To set the HRef attribute of the anchor I am using the GetMappedUrl() method as this provides the correct link.

This also appends a language parameter to the end of the link eg ?epslanguage=en-gb. While this works and links correctly this is causing issues with some search software which is indexing the site. The indexer seems to be indexing the same link twice, once with the language parameter and once without (in some cases it only indexes one link, the one with the parameter).

Note that this is a single language site set to en-gb and all other languages are turned off. Does anyone know of a way to prevent the language parameter being added? Can anyone provide any other advice?

Thanks in advance,

The easy way to turn it of is to make your own friendly url rewriter

 protected override bool ConvertToInternalInternal(UrlBuilder url, ref object internalObject)
bool ok=base.ConvertToInternalInternal(url,ref internalObject);
return ok;
