I use UrlMappings in web.config. Now, I must have 2 url entries to make the mapping work with both the trailing backslash and without. Like this:

    <urlMappings>
      <clear />
      <add url="~/app" mappedUrl="~/Templates/Sections/Common/Article.aspx?id=981" />
      <add url="~/app/" mappedUrl="~/Templates/Sections/Common/Article.aspx?id=981" />
    </urlMappings>

Open in new window


Is it possible to make the url (~/app) work with or without trailing slash, in one line of code? Mabye by using wildcard or something for the "~/app" url..?

If it's a regular expression then you would use url="~/app/?"

However, I found this, which says to me it's not the default behaviour to allow regex's (the article says how to add support for regex's):
