Hey Bruce,

Long time no speak ...

Been having a look at your URL Redirect provider - attempting to do a URL only style redirect.
I noticed that you mentioned some issues with builds of dnn prior to 7.3x ... but it at least in theory still seems that there are some issues.

Doing tested on a WIN8.1 machine with dnn 7.3.3.

Set up a redirect which I assume should work:

/images/some.pdf
to
/

I assume this would take the original url and redirect to the home page.

But nothing seems to happen.

After setting up the project and getting a debug working
  • I can see the url extension being called and entered if I test a existing valid path:
http://website.localhost/ - enters debug
http://website.localhost/images/ - enters debug

But if I try http://website.localhost//images/some.pdf
then it does not seem to enter debug at all inside the extension
  • what am I missing - any thoughts.
Cheers
