Extention Nightmare

  • Sitefinity 3.7 pages use the .aspx extension.

    Sitefinity 4.4 pages are extension-less.

    When you migrate from 3.7 to 4.4 the migration tool KEEPS the .aspx extension from 3.7. If you modify the migrated page in 4.4 it becomes extension-less.

    How does any of this make sense? Why would it not just convert migrated pages to extension-less then have internal url rewrite that would try to 301 redirect any .aspx calls to the extension-less counterpart?

    Enough of my rant, here is my problem. Because of this extension-less nightmare described above I decided to implement my own version of the fix I suggested. I wrote code to update all of the pages in 4.4 so that they became extension-less and then I used a url rewriter to 301 redirect all .aspx calls to extension-less.

    Worked perfectly.

    BUT now all of my page groups and my redirect pages no longer work and throw a 404. Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Out of all the migration issues this would have be the most frustrating one I've come across.

  • Hi,

    What is the solution cause we are having the same problem. In fact even if we rename the page it still wants to use an aspx extension.

    Thanks,

    Seth
