    Hi all,

    Setting up a broken link with a pdf extension to redirect to a Sitefinity page does not seem to be working for me.  I'm going through the usual process of adding the URL's by going to Pages -> Title and Properties -> Allow Multiple URL's.  

    Interestingly, something like ~/example.html redirects as you would expect, however a page ending with ~/example.pdf does not, and simply returns a 404.

    Has anybody else experienced this issue?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I figured out a solution!  In case anyone else encounters this, here is what I did:

    1.  Go to Administration -> Settings
    2.  Selected "Advanced"
    3.  Select "Pages" from the menu.
    4.  Under "Not allowed page extensions," remove .pdf.
