I am wondering if your url rewriting module for DNN can make every page appear as a folder rather than an aspx page?

Example:

www.YourDomain.com/Folder/Page.aspx 

converted to:

www.YourDomain.com/Folder/Page

If so, can you provide some documentation on this, so I can purchase the module immediately.

If it is possible, has it been tested in DNN 5.1.4?

Our rewriting module doesn't do folders - but the one built into the DotNetNuke core does, so maybe you would be better off with that.

 Do happen to know how this works.  I see the DNN human friendly - but all it does is creates the page names into .aspx files.  I do not see how to make it so that everything looks like folders.

Are you asking about the core friendly urls? When I install a new DNN 5, it always puts folder paths into the Url, no special configuration required.

 Well it does that for me too.

However, as in my example it works like:

 

The Home tab's URL is http://www.YourDomain.com (no problem)

Another top level tab like, "About Us", becomes:

http://www.YourDomain.com/aboutus.aspx

 

I want this to be http://www.YourDomain.com/aboutus

 

Does that make sense?

Ok I understand now. You can't have no extension because IIS (the web server) won't route requests to ASP.NET unless the file extension matches one that it is configured to think asp.net handles. So any .net-based Url rewriter won't be able to handle "extension-less" Urls.

If you only have a few links that you want to handle like this, then I would suggest creating "real" folders with the required names, and putting a small default.aspx file in each folder to redirect to the "real" page.
