having some weirdness setting up sesconverter....

<A href="index.cfm/fuseaction/shop.Login.cfm">

doesn't throw an error...it just gives me the page it was called from back...that is...the urls show up correctly in the address bar...just that the page doesn't change...


i've also dl'd the demo from fusium.com and get the same results...

the same page is displayed for

http://10.10.10.180/sesdemo/ 
and
http://10.10.10.180/sesdemo/index.cfm/fuseaction/examples.defaultFuseaction/Example_SES_Links.cfm



IIS 5 with no urlscan all Sp's
IE6.0.28 all sp's
Fusebox3
CF5.0


any ideas?

generally, fuseactions don't end in .cfm

try  <A href="index.cfm/fuseaction/shop.Login">

what you may be getting is the defaultfuseaction for the shop circuit (which is probably just blank or not defined at all).

ummm...ya i know that...that's the whole point behind the sesconverter...to fake out the search engines...so

<A href="index.cfm?fuseaction=shop.Login">
which search engines don't like...(and is the valid fb syntax btw)

becomes

<A href="index.cfm/fuseaction/shop.Login.cfm">

 so they think it's static..which they do like...

Commented:
you missed my point.  what I'm saying is that your link should probably drop the .cfm on the end

<A href="index.cfm/fuseaction/shop.Login">

no..didn't miss the point... the sesconverter adds the dummy extension (or rather handles) of .cfm or .htm or .foo or .blah or .whatever...that's what it's supposed to do...the whole point behind the sesconverter is to take the dynamic url and turn it into something that looks like a static url...

Commented:
is shop.Login a valid circuit/fuseaction?

if not, do you have a fusebox.defaultfusaction defined in that circuit?

if not, do you have a cfdefaultcase setup in your switch file in that circuit?
