Hi everyone

Having real problems with using SiteMap.CurrentNode. In my sitemap, I have /about-us/ and a rule in my .ini that '/about-us/' rewrites to 'about-us.aspx' . However, when I call the CurrentNode in my code the server returns about-us.aspx and produces a NullReferenceException since about-us.aspx isn't present in the sitemap file.

I found a solution for 'UrlRewritingNet' (http://markmail.org/message/wmgekwp2rv2jp4ny) but id prefer to have this working on IIRF :)

Trying to build a bread crumb!!

Thanks for any help anyone can give me!!

I just resolved this very problem for one of my websites, and learned something in the process!

What you have to do is tell your form to use the Raw URL; in my case, I have a master page so I put the following code in my Master's code behind:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            MyForm.Action = Request.RawUrl;

I hope it helps!

Thanks cnavarro7. Ill tell you what i ended up doing in the end. In the sitmap file I set a new parameter Rewriteurl and used that to populate my urls. For example:

 <siteMapNode title="About Us" url="~/about-us.aspx" rewriteurl="about-us/" description="About Us Description">

Worked a treat!!
