UrlRewriter - a rule-based URL Rewriter for .NET. Copyright (c)2011 Seth Yates Author Seth Yates Author Stewart Rae Version 2.1


  1. Open your web project, or create a new one.
  2. Add a reference to the Intelligencia.UrlRewriter assembly.
  3. Open the web.config file.
  4. Add Configuration section handler:

    <configSections> <section name="rewriter" requirePermission="false" type="Intelligencia.UrlRewriter.Configuration.RewriterConfigurationSectionHandler, Intelligencia.UrlRewriter" /> </configSections>

    This enables the URL Rewriter to read its configuration from the rewriteRules node in the web.config file.

  5. Add UrlRewriter mapper HttpModule:

    <system.web> <httpModules> <add type="Intelligencia.UrlRewriter.RewriterHttpModule, Intelligencia.UrlRewriter" name="UrlRewriter" /> </httpModules> </system.web>

    This enables the URL Rewriter to intercept web requests and rewrite URL requests.

  6. Add some rules to your web.config file:

    <rewriter> <if url="/tags/(.+)" rewrite="/tagcloud.aspx?tag=$1" /> <!-- same thing as <rewrite url="/tags/(.+)" to="/tagcloud.aspx?tag=$1" /> --> </rewriter>

    The syntax of the rewriter section is very powerful. Refer to the help file for more details of what is possible. The above rule assumes you have mapped all requests to the .NET runtime. For more information on how to do this, see http://urlrewriter.net/index.php/using/installation/

  7. Compile and test!
