Setting Up Simple URL Rewriting In Ucommerce

In order to use the URL engine in Ucommerce, you need a set of IIS rewrite rules, that would make sure that your URLs point at correct pages in the CMS and the CatalogContext is populated correctly.

You can configure custom IIS rewrite rules in section in web.config file under your website.

    	<rule name="DefaultCategoryProductRewrite">
    		<match url="(.*)/c-([0-9]+)/c-([0-9]+)/p-([0-9]+)" />
    		<action type="Rewrite" url="catalog/product.aspx?catalog={R:2}&category={R:3}&product={R:4}" />
    	<rule name="DefaultProductRewrite">
    		<match url="(.*)/c-([0-9]+)/p-([0-9]+)" />
    		<action type="Rewrite" url="product.aspx?catalog={R:2}&product={R:3}" />
    	<rule name="DefaultCategoryRewrite">
    		<match url="(.*)/c-([0-9]+)/c-([0-9]+)" />
    		<action type="Rewrite" url="catalog.aspx?catalog={R:2}&category={R:3}" />
    	<rule name="DefaultCatalogRewrite">
    		<match url="(.*)/c-([0-9]+)" />
    		<action type="Rewrite" url="catalog.aspx?catalog={R:2}" />

This gives you pretty URLs, like these for example:

Page Sample url
Catalog - demo-store demo-store/c-24
Category - Formal demo-store/tops/formal/c-24/c-70
Product demo-store/tops/formal/blue-kittens-shirt/c-24/c-70/p-110
