Hi there,

We're having an issue which I think is how the URL rewriting is "supposed" to work in DNN but we need a different behaviour.  The site works great in terms of redirecting to our custom 404 error page as long as you're in the root of the application, but when you're in a subdirectory for instance:  www.domain.com/subdirectory/wrongpage.aspx where the wrongpage.aspx wouldn't be found, the site shows that the page was found but redirects the user back to www.domain.com/subdirectory which is incorrect, it should redirect the user to the custom 404 error page.  I know that the URL rewriting gets done by the old Ifinity module and found this piece on their site:

"So, if you have a page called /path1 and you request /path1/nopage.aspx, then you'll get the /path1 page returned as normal.  The /nopage part of the path will be treated as a querystring. "

This is exactly my problem, for good SEO practices we need for this "nopage.aspx" not to redirect to /path1 but rather to the custom 404 error page, how do we achieve this?

Any and all recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Anina
