Need to remove the PAGES from your publishing site URL's?

By shane.perran in : SharePoint 2007 // Feb 27 2007

Thanks to Mark Harrison for pointing me to this new gem coming up in late march.The ‘RAPID for SharePoint’ Classification system will be available in a range of versions towards the end of March 2007. It enables SharePoint 2007 to meet current Public Sector compliance requirements by supporting a range of Taxonomies including IPSV.

Also includes a URL rewriting component that removes the unwanted ‘Pages’ element of a typical SharePoint publishing URL.

Having been dealing with a major customer in the public sector, I can say that such products will be welcomed with opened arms.

* Update, after some mild chit chat over the URL redirection with the WCM experts www.andrewconnell.com/blog | www.harbar.net, it would appear there is much debate surrounding the topic.

    Why would the redirection not be supported ?

    I’m not 100% sure – this is a fairly hot discussion with input from Andrew C. Spencer H and the people doing Rapid. Everyone is anxious to look at it, but like with all things are cautious due to some things they’ve heard here and there from the product team.

    Those guys can give a much clearer explanation.

    And its not actually redirection – its all done internally via a handler.

    This seems to be an ongoing debate. Looking forward to seeing it progress, and particularly interested in trying out the product.

    Hi Shane

    Is there any reason for why URL rewriting on top of WCM is not supported?
