    I am trying to call a JSON webservice in a code-behind page in Sitefinity.  Here is the code in the aspx code-behind page...

    1 [WebMethod] 
    2     public static object States() 
    3     { 
    4         StateProvince[] states = new StateProvince[] { }; 
    5         ApplicationServiceClient proxy = null
    6  
    7         try 
    8         { 
    9             proxy = new ApplicationServiceClient(); 
    10             states = proxy.GetStateProvinces(); 
    11         } 
    12         finally 
    13         { 
    14             CloseServiceProxy(proxy); 
    15         } 
    16         return states; 
    17     } 

    I can call this web method just fine using Fiddler2 or via jquery ajax calls in the pages on my development web server.

    e.g.

    http://localhost/Regions.aspx/States

    However, when I deploy to Sitefinity, I get the following exception...

    Server Error in '/FleetCardsUSA' Application.
    Unknown web method States.aspx.
    Parameter name: methodName

    I am wondering if there is a custom handler in Sitefinity that hijacks the request and post-pends the ".aspx" extension to my URL. 

    Anybody have any suggestions???

    Hi Chris,

    Yes we have this issue in Sitefinity 3.6. It is fixed in the upcoming service pack.
    A temporary workaround is discribed in this forum thread:
    http://www.sitefinity.com/support/forums/support-forum-thread/b1043S-bhtkdt.aspx

    The solution is for .svc extensions.
    In your case, you should use:
    using System;   
    using System.Collections.Generic;   
    using System.Web;   
    using Telerik.Cms.Web;   
       
    // Remove this class after upgrading to Sitefinity 3.6 SP1   
    public class CmsHttpModuleFix : CmsHttpModule   
    {   
        protected override void RewriteURL(string newURL, bool rebaseClientPath)   
        {   
            CmsHttpRequest cmsRequest = CmsHttpRequest.Current;   
            if (cmsRequest.IsPathChanged   
                && cmsRequest.ExtensionLower.Equals(UrlHelper.PageExtension)   
                && (cmsRequest.PathSegments.Length > 1)   
                && cmsRequest.PathSegments[cmsRequest.PathSegments.Length - 1].Contains(".aspx")   
                )   
            {   
                return;   
            }   
            base.RewriteURL(newURL, rebaseClientPath);   
        }   
    }  


    We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    Sincerely yours,
