Using VBScript and Classic .ASP to achieve clean, searchable URLs

Hi there everyone and merry Christmas!

Can anybody help me on this? I am trying to develop a directory of clubs with clean/Search Engine friendly URL's using classic .ASP / VBscript. Firstly... is this possible? I know in the PHP (mod-rewrite) and .NET (ISAPI) it is, but unfortunately my programming skills don't stretch beyond classic .ASP/VBScript ;o(

Basically... when a new club signs up, instead of having unreadable parameters in the URL it would look something like this:


Anybody know of any techniques to acheive this using VBScript and classic .ASP

Thanks a million in advance!

Kind regards

Do you have the ability to install programs on your server? If so, you might check out ISAPI re-write

This is very simple using ISAPI Rewrite. You can get a single copy for around $99 I think. If you buy in volume, you can get a discount. This tool is probably one of the best investments you'll ever make for your site.

Hi Corey/ZydoSEO

Unfortunately I don't have access to install programs on the server. I did however come across a commercial link directory script (classic .ASP) that promises SE friendly URL's without the need for a re-writing engine. So... I just thought that there was a workaround that could be coded!?

Anyway, thanks a million for your help!

Decbrad, how you would install this new script ( Classic .ASP ) as you dont have access to install programs on server. Better try to build simple HTML website ;)

Try searching for classic asp url rewrite - I found a blog post that spoke about this. I don't know if it would work in your situation - but it might.
