    Hi All,
    I've just been able to enable the extensionless URLs feature on my site, with one exception.

    I have the NewsView control on a couple pages and the "Full Story" link still points to a page with the ".aspx" extension.
    ie.
    http://mydomain.com/News_FullStory/11-12-20/The_Title.aspx

    That being said, if I enter in the URL without the ".aspx", it also works fine.
    ie. http://mydomain.com/News_FullStory/11-12-20/The_Title 

    How do I go about modifying the "Full Story" link so that it doesn't have the ".aspx"?

    Thanks in advance,
    Eric

    Hi,

    Can you please open your web config and go to the <cmsEngine> configuration section? Then, please edit the format for generation of news urls, not to include the extension. After you do this you will need to perform a dummy edit on your existing news items, so that they do not use the extension any more. Sample config below:
    <add name="News" urlRewriteFormat="[Publication_Date]/[Title]" urlDateTimeFormat="yy-MM-dd" urlWhitespaceChar="_" visible="False" defaultMetaField="Title" securityProviderName="" allowVersioning="True" applicationName="/News" versioningProviderName="" commentsModeration="true" connectionStringName="GenericContentConnection" type="Telerik.News.Data.DefaultNewsProvider, Telerik.News.Data"/>
