    I have to have a flash script under the same directory as the pages accessing the script for a part of my site to work.  Here is what I did to get everything to work and I am wondering if I am going to have any issues down the road.

    • I created the Page Group named interactive in SF.
    • I inserted my first page.
    • I then created a physical directory using VS2008 named interactive.

    Can anyone see any potential issues down the road with me doing this?  So far it seems to work.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is not a problem. Adding a physical directory with the same name (as the name of the page group) does not interfere with the Sitefinity internal processing.

    You can put your files in the physical directory and everything should work fine. 

    We hope this information will help you.

    I would like to add that this CAN pose a problem if in your physical directory you add a physical default.aspx or index.aspx. when I did this it would bypass sitefinity's page if someone accessed just the subdirectory like site.com/interactive

    other than that everything worked fine

    Hi SelArom,

    This is so because default.aspx or index.aspx are added as default documents in IIS. Having that said, IIS takes care about these files, and do not pass them to the ASP ISAPI filter, i.e. the request does not reach to Sitefinity. Still, this is very important to know, and Josh, I thank you for your note.

    Sincerely yours,
    Georgi
