Currently i am running the cascades on IIS server 7.

In cascades i have created following

  • basic_page (content type)
  • basic_page (configuration set) have file extension as .aspx , If I dont put anything it gives me error.

Here it is how i want my URL to be

instead of or or

Please let me know how can i achieve above and please don't say that cascades doesn't supports this.

Before i have not received satisfactory solutions or if there is a solution than its too complex to do where other CMS does in few minutes to other various problems

sending out emails to users whenever content has been updated (xslt doesnot supports forms)
live search  
folder last modified date within cascades (erroneous date)

Only to incorporate google search is not enough in current era of web. Please also give me reply for that issue as i have not received any solution since couple of weeks.

Best Regards,

    Hi Uthman,

    Currently, the extension field is required for outputs; however, we do have a related suggestion on our Idea Exchange to allow for no extension. I highly recommend voting for this suggestion if you would like for it to be considered for a future release.

    In the meantime, the work around for this would be to configure your web server to rewrite URLs with .aspx extensions to remove the extension. I am not familiar with how IIS would do this, but in Apache it would be accomplished using mod_rewrite. I believe you can use the URL Rewrite extension provided by Microsoft. It also looks like the extension has an import feature that can import mod_rewrite rules.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
