One of my clients wants to have his default.aspx page hidden to the world. I can certainly use isapi_rewrite to redirect [thesite.com...] to [thesite.com...] but when I do that I break all the active form elements on the page such as the search box and others.
The reason is that these elements obviously post back to the default.aspx page and if I have the rewrite rule activated then it can't resolve. Any ideas?
I agree that it is strange. I've tried to convince him that he doesn't need to do it but he thinks it is somehow hurting him with SEO. In any case, it's now my job to do what the client wants - any way to get it done? If the answer is "no" then that's fine too - I can just tell him that it can't be done and close the case :)
