Multiple URLs for items not working.

  • Multiple URLs for items not working.
  • Hi!
    I have a document within my library which is a PDF. The url for this file just now is - www.mydomain.com/.../chapter1.pdf

    This works fine, however, this is on our development site and there is a link to the same document currently on our live site which is -
    www.mydomain.com/.../chapter1.pdf

    I had hoped that I could manually enter the url /reviews/report/chapter1.pdf in to the allow multiple URLs but I get an error saying the url is not valid. Ive tried the url with http:// and without but it still doesnt work.

    Is there a way to set this up so that old urls will point to this new location?

    Thanks.

  • The link to the bug description no longer appears to be working. It's over a year later and I'm still encountering this bug (albeit, we are not using the latest version of Sitefinity). Where can I view the status of the bug?

  • Thank you!

  • Can anyone comment on the resolution to this? Or include a possible workaround?

     I would maybe say handle the global errors message and look for file not found or something, then search documents additional field for a match and if found 301 the user over to that document...sounds like it would work (in theory I suppose)

  • @Steve: Nice creative workaround! I suppose if the whole process can be completed in not too long, it would be implementable. 

    If anyone else tries this, let us know. I'll give her a look in the near future and post my findings.... then sell it to Telerik ;)

  • Thanks for the info. What version of Sitefinity are you using? I don't see "MediaFileAdditionalUrls" in the Libraries option tree in my version. (7.3)
  • Thank you!
  • From Telerik support:
    To enable such additional URLs, go to Advanced Settings -> Libraries -> MediaFileAdditionalUrls and check the Media items additional URLs relative to site root (not to a containing page) checkbox.
  • It was implemented in 8.0.5703.0.
