sesConverter Help

I am trying to implement sesConverter on an IIS using ColdFusion MX7.
This is the current format,
http://site.com/estore/IA/category.cfm?cat=185
With sesConverter in place I still get,
http://site.com/estore/IA/category.cfm?cat=185
but if I manually type in the "/" in the proper locations as,
http://site.com/estore/IA/category.cfm/cat/185
It functions properly. I can even go directly to the above URL and it works.
Does anyone know why it isn't automatically rewriting the URL's?

"Does anyone know why it isn't automatically rewriting the URL's?"

that's a common misconception when first using sesConverter (happened to me as well)

It doesn't rewrite the url's...it parses them so they work... you need to go through your code and manually update the links to the ses format

http://site.com/estore/IA/category.cfm/cat/185

then when passed thru ses it parses that and passes it to cfserver as

http://site.com/estore/IA/category.cfm?cat=185

been using it for years... I don't believe there are any others out there that do any differently. The only other option is messing with your webserver to do url rewriting... and that's not something i'd choose to do...

the other issue is that most search engines have no problems with "non-ses" urls... they're much better at it as so much of the content out there is dynamic these days...

I continue to uses ses urls mostly out of habit...

also there is a problem with sesConverter and flash based cf stuff (cfform, cfdocument etc...) Any of this type of thing will fail when the url they reside at is parsed thru sesC. I've emailed Erik at fusium but he told me he was too busy to look at it :0
