My understanding is that I can write a custom module to redirect incoming shorter links based on virtual directories, such as ~/shortname to the actual page at ~/longpage.aspx or ~/shortname/longpage.aspx
The question is whether or not I can establish redirection such as this within Sitefinity.
I am aware of the fact that I can use the URL rewrite to redirect from ~/anything to ~anywhere, but I am looking for a solution that does not involve changes of or coding in web.config.
I thought that I could create a page and then just add a custom URL, that instead of ~/alternativename.aspx would say /shortname, but this method does not work and when I do this, I get a 404 error when hitting ~/shortname.
Could you please let me know if I can create virtual links such as ~/shortname for pages within Sitefinity?
I have Sitefinity 3.5.
