We specifically want to turn URLS like this
where "page Name" is stored in the database as "A_Page_Name" already.
Does anyone know if this would be possible with just classic ASP code?
you can do this with 404 rewriting without the ISAPI filter or similar.
You'll need to point your 404 page in IIS to a script eg rewrite.asp. Then in rewrite.asp do a database lookup on the requested url (articleID=3456), pull your content and redirect (maybe with a 301 header).
Please note I've only done this with php on IIS and not classic asp. However I think the theory should hold. Googling for IIS custom 404 redirect may provide some further advice.
Downsides to it only really happen when using .NET and postbacks, but it's an easy fix once you got the code for it.
Support is really good on their forums, and it's easy to install and understand.
