Page Routing or Redirection...

I have a situation.

I find myself needing to redirect any request that contains the path '/Sites/' to '/Sites/' & VariableID

For example:
/Sites/Images/test_image.jpg

needs to become
/Sites/SITEID123456/Images/test_image.jpg

note, there are many folders inside /Sites/SITEID123456 that can contain anything from .exe to .jpg, to even fonts... so I need a wildcard solution

I thought I would be able to do this with .MapPageRoute, however, the more I read up on it, the more it seems I can only route to a page

How can I do this then?
(.Net 4, I am using VB, but I can translate a C# solution...)

I think you can just setup a custom route in your global.asax file.  This link may help.

got it.

In global.asax:
 
Sub Application_BeginRequest(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        ' Fires at the beginning of each request
        Dim app As HttpApplication = TryCast(sender, HttpApplication)
        Dim _Path As String = app.Request.Path
        If _Path.ToLower.Contains("sites/") Then
            app.Context.RewritePath(_Path.Replace("Sites/", "Sites/" & Settings.SiteID & "/"))
        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window
