Tag Archives: url routing

We are jumping from static .html site to new ASP.MVC version.
There are several legacy .html urls that we need to route to new controller’s methods.
Besides, we need to support new pure .html pages places in the project tree.

1. To provide legacy URL redirects (301-Permanent redirect) by URL Routing,
we mapped .html to Aspnet_isapi.dll in IIS settings of the web application.

2. Add routing for legacy URLs like:

routes.Add(new LegacyRoute(“{action}.html”, “Products”, new LegacyRouteHandler())
{
Constraints = new RouteValueDictionary { { “action”, “arena|gallery|construct” } }
});
routes.Add(new LegacyRoute(“advergames.html”, “Products”, new LegacyRouteHandler())
{
Defaults = new RouteValueDictionary { { “action”, “arena” } }
});
routes.Add(new LegacyRoute(“news2003.html”, “Company-Info-news”, new LegacyRouteHandler())
{
Defaults = new RouteValueDictionary { { “action”, “news” }, { “year”, “2003” } }
});
routes.Add(new LegacyRoute(“{game}.html”, “Games-Game”, new LegacyRouteHandler())
{
Defaults = new RouteValueDictionary { { “category”, “arcade” } }
,
Constraints = new RouteValueDictionary { { “game”, “alien-attack|alus-revenge|arcade-football” } }
});
routes.Add(new LegacyRoute(“{category}-games.html”, “Games-Category”, new LegacyRouteHandler())
{
Constraints = new RouteValueDictionary { { “category”, “arcade|card|casino” } }
});
routes.Add(new LegacyRoute(“games.html”, “Games-AllGames”, new LegacyRouteHandler()));
routes.Add(new LegacyRoute(“index.html”, “Root”, new LegacyRouteHandler()));

3. Process all other .html as regular pages

routes.Add(new Route(“*.html”, new StopRoutingHandler()));

4. Add Page-Not-Found routing

routes.MapRoute(
“404-PageNotFound”,
“{*url}”,
new { controller = “home”, action = “PageNotFound” }
);

5. For IIS-6 provide IHttpHandler for .html as we should process it in our ASPX application

<httphandlers>
<add path=”*.html” verb=”*” type=”System.Web.StaticFileHandler”></add>
