    Hello,

    I am integrating Sitefinity CMS to our existing website. Since the website has many files in both older versions and newer versions , I created an application under our default website  "sitefinity" and it is virtually mapped to sitefinity installed files.

    I have my master page and usercontrols for the article pages. The content of the article page is news items created by our editors. As a test, I have this link - http://domainname/sitefinity/article/10-04-21/When_It_Hurts_To_Walk.aspx .
    This is good but only problem we are having is the URL .We need to make link look like -

     http://domainname/category/subcategory/articlename.aspx
    .  Since, we publish so many articles- we need this to be dynamic. Is there any way I can do this? Please, help.

    Thanks,

    Hi Reginald Ware,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Each generic content based module has its UrlRewritePath property which can be changed from the web.config. This will let you define how urls will look like for news, blogs, events, etc. Please take a look at the following webinar for more information on url rewriting: URL Rewriting In Sitefinity. However since you have added the website as a child application in a virtual directory you will not be able to remove the /sitefinity/ name of virtual directory.
