Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
So, if I'm not wrong, now the images are treated as any other normal HTML pages and Google might crawl them and index them too for a Web search right? What's it with the .ashx by the way?shaunm, I know very little about asp.net, and most references on the topic assume a bunch of vocabulary that I'm not familiar with... but I'm pretty sure that...
This is an IIS asp.net question. What I'd like to know is what part of your "platform change" caused this?We recently moved to Sitecore CMS and it's on IIS 8.5.
As an IIS admin, the only time I put images behind a handler (.ashx) is when I want more control of how the image is processed. I do not want to provide direct access to the image.
But still I'm not entirely clear why a popular CMS should create some complex URL structures avoiding very common prototypes.
That's really bad development in play.
