UrlRewriteProvider and UrlRewriteModule



Trying to achieve something similar to this


they should internally be something like


There is little recent documentation and examples on how to achieve this. Found a good blog post about it but it has a few years on its neck. http://tedgustaf.com/en/blog/2008/7/create-a-custom-url-rewrite-provider-for-episerver/.

I've successfully(?) setup a custom UrlRewriteModule and UrlRewriteProvider but thing is, when I enter my "virtual" url my breakpoint in my UrlRewriteModule hits, calling base, but never reaching my UrlRewriteProvider which is supposed to intepret /sports/basketball/stockholm/"


Is UrlRewriteProviders commonly used in EPi solutions or are there other more commonly used ways for achiving the same goals?

Have you registered your rewriter in episerver.config?

Url rewriter is the way to go.

I guess this is just an example "/ShowSportForCity.aspx?sportID=2&CityID=4"? Id and other EPiServer parameters is missing in the url.

Here is an example to a working rewriter for a blog page http://www.dodavinkeln.se/post/2012/03/15/Url-rewriter-for-a-blog.aspx

Thanks for the quick reply and thanks for the example code.

So TryConvertToInternal was the key, here we go!

ps. yupp, registered in configs and everything but somehow .. I didnt get TryConvertToInternal to trigger. My fault I guess :)
ps2. yeah, just an example. some epi-params were missing.
