Hi I have a large redirect page made up of eg
<add key="/acatalog/Crayons.html" value="/ProductSection/Crayons.aspx"/>
problem is that they had loads of queries they could have

eg  /acatalog/Crystal_Products.html?imz_s=pgten7msnkp6fl0ppp8p87c0a0

is they a way to match anything upto the "?" so inother words ingnore the query string and redirect it?

the redirect
  <rule name="Old Page Redirects" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url=".*"/>
            <add input="{OldPages:{REQUEST_URI}}" pattern="(.+)"/>
          <action type="Redirect" url="{C:1}" appendQueryString="false" redirectType="Permanent"/>

hi tried that but think as its trying to match "/acatalog/Crystal_Products.html" if it has the query string it does not fire. It must be something in the pattern bit
