Semantic URLs for SharePoint

By | September 1, 2009

English

First time I understand about semantic URL is when I started to create my blog. According to the Wikipedia, “Semantic URL” refers to a URL which is of a form that is immediately and intuitively meaningful to non-expert. For example,  if we refer to a publishing pages in SharePoint , we might see http://<someserver>/<somedepartment>/pages/default.aspx , or http://www.mycompany.com/hrdepartment/pages/policy.aspx which are not intuitive.

To make it easier for non SharePoint expert, one would love to remember semantic urls such as http://www.mycompany.com/hrdepartment/policy which then redirect to actual page under pages library in SharePoint.

Waldek has post excellent how-to , to create semantic URL in IIS-7 in his blog here. However, I wonder if we could do the same (without create single line of code) in IIS-6.

    Can we use these semantic URLs to restrict access to the sharepoint list items pages? I’ve created a portal with FBA. I dont want any of the user to view the actual list/allitems.aspx pages. I want them to view only the pages which i’ve created. Any ideas?

      Eventough I never done it, but theoritically I thinks its possible. Imagine, that you can have pattern like .*/lists/.*/AllItems.aspx , and redirect this kind of url to homepage – etc.
