ASPX WebRequest Rewriter


Fed up with IIS not providing permalinks? Don’t have access to the IIS control panel on your host? Then wp-aspxrewriter is for you!

Allowing URLS such as: this is the easiest way to enable completely pretty permalinks on IIS 6 or IIS 7.

How does it work?

That depends on which version of IIS you are using.

In IIS 6 without Integrated Pipeline mode, the request comes in, is matched by the engine which then makes a web request to the correct php page. In IIS 7 proper path rewriting is done and the PHP handler is invoked by IIS.

It doesn’t work with my plugin!

Get in touch and I’ll see what I can do to fix it. This is an early release and has worked in the situations I’ve tested, I can’t guarantee it will in all circumstances.
