Hello, we're trying to add a trailing slash in a url of a website coded in asp.net IIS 7

right now the webpage is:

.com/leads.html

we want to change it to:

.com/leads/

the only thing we can do know w/ IIS rewrite is change it to:

.com/leads

do you have any suggestions?  Thanks for any help...

create a folder named leads  under the root directory
move leads.html to be in the folder leads
rename leads.html    into index.html
point your browser to  .com/leads/

you are done

You have to create URL rewrite rule for IIS7 web site. It will automatically rewrite input url in format /leads/ to leads.html
First of all download and install rewrite module for IIS7 using web platform installer.
Then create new rewrite rules.

You can use rewriteMaps more information you can find here:

I use URLReWriter, it is easy and free

a rule as yours would be:
<rewrite url="~/Public/Thankyou" to="~/Public/Thankyou.aspx" processing="stop"/>

The solution was to use the url rewrite module for iis 7 as this url says: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/04/20/tip-trick-fix-common-seo-problems-using-the-url-rewrite-extension.aspx

Then, you need to create a new helper instead of using the default Url.Route(), like a Url.RouteTrailingSlash() that adds a "/" at the end of the urls.
