[IIS 7.5] Remove %20 from URL using Rewrite module v2

Hello,

I've a website running on SharePoint Foundation 2010 which is relayed on IIS 7.5. I've a page with Title "Service Catalog" which results the URL as "https://intranet/portal/SitePages/Service%20Catalog.aspx"

I've Rewrite module 2 installed on IIS 7.5 and configured with one rule which redirect users from http to https

Q: I would like to remove "%20" from any URL for the site. I can't simply rename the Site Title to get rid of this, since inbuilt web parts relayed on the path with "%20".

So I would like to rewrite the URL by removing %20 via Rewrite module 2 so that other web parts relayed on this URL will work normally.

I'm new to Rewrite module. Clear guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The %20 is NOT in the address of the URL.  %20 is the ASCII Encocded markup for a BLANK character (%20 is the encoding for HEX 20 which is ASCII 32 = " ").  When the URL is decoded, it becomes Service Catalog.aspx
  If you were to remove the %20, it would decode to ServiceCatalog.aspx, which does not exist.

Arthur,

In that case, Is there anyway to replace "%20" with hyphen "-" or plus "+" symbols via Rewrite v2 module for IIS 7.5?

Thanks.

Why would you want to do that?  You said the site title is Service Catalog.aspx, and that you did NOT want to change the site title.  If you replace the %20 with '-', you would still need to change the site title to match.  What is the issue with the encoded %20?
