I've hit a snag while using this feature. I think there are two possible reasons why it's not working so let me tell you what I did and maybe you can see what's going on internally, thanks.
I have a page which is located at site.com/subsection/dynamicpage.aspx. This is the current, permanent location for this content, however previous to our adopting sitefinity, this page was located at site.com/dynamicpage.aspx. I added the additional url to be ~/dynamicpage and forwarded it to the current correct page and it works just as I expected.
However, not too long before that, this content was on a STATIC, html only page. the link to that was site.com/staticpage.htm. I need to be able to forward BOTH the old site.com/dynamicpage.aspx AND the OLDER site.com/staticpage.htm to the new permanent page of site.com/subsection/dynamicpage.aspx. I have set an additional url for the old, static, html only version of the page and set it to forward to the correct url, however when I run that link,I see the correct content from the permanent new page, but in the address bar it still says site.com/staticpage.htm and doesn't forward the URL to the correct one.
it might be that it's not forwarding from a root directory to the new subdirectory, but as I say above, the middle link site.com/dynamicpage.aspx DOES forward correctly...
so it seems more likely that it's the htm extension that's killing it. Do I have to map this extention to run through sitefinity or something? why does it display the content correctly, but not forward the url?
any help would be appreciated, thank you!
