Hi There,

I would like to find out the best way to render friendly URLS in my MVC 2 application. Can anyone post some code for this.

I'm wanting a url like http://www.mydomain.com/some-folder/some-file.aspx.

Thanks in advance,

Sean

Sean,

MVC does provide user-friendly urls by default. So the MVC url might look something like:

http://site.com/product/edit/123
as against
http://site.com/EditProduct.aspx?id=123

The second one is how WebForms do it. Another benefit of the first one is that search engines can cache these urls, but not the latter one. I'm sure you agree that something like:
http://site.com/products/display/laptops

is a lot more intuitive than
http://site.com/DisplayProducts.aspx?id=72

So, I'm not sure what exactly you mean by user-friendly urls. Please explain.

Hi Nmarun, looking for seo friendly urls in particular. Something like mydomain.com/my-folder/my-page/

Does this make sense?
