Upgrade to Mojoportal 2.3.3.0 with mono 2.4.2.3

Hi Joe,

 

Apache: 2.2.14

Mono: 2.4.2.3

Debian: Lenny

Core version: 2.3.1.9

MySQL: 5.0.51a

 

When I tried an upgrade to MojoPortal : 2.3.3.0 Urls like http://website/path/pages.aspx returned a 404 Error

(for exemple : http://www.maisonpedia.com/energie-domestique/le-prix-des-maisons-basse-consommation-encore-trop-eleve.aspx)

 

I tried a new fresh install in the same environment for testing :

http://website/pages.aspx was OK

http://website/blog/pages.aspx was not OK

In doubt I have checked your information concerning this new version (http://www.mojoportal.com/non-ascii-urls.aspx). But this was not the problem.

 

Best,

 

Pierre-Alain

Re: Upgrade to Mojoportal 2.3.3.0 with mono 2.4.2.3

Hi Pierre-Alain,

Is this currently affecting your production site or did you revert to a previous version?

http://www.maisonpedia.com/energie-domestique/le-prix-des-maisons-basse-consommation-encore-trop-eleve.aspx

seems to be working at the moment.

I'm getting very close to a new release but if your site is broken I can try to produce a build for you right away.

I do recommend changing this to false

<add key="AlwaysUrlEncode" value="false" />

I made it true by default in version 2.3.3.0 but I am changing it to false in the coming release because it seems to have caused more problems rather than fixing the one it was intended to fix.

Best,

Joe

Re: Upgrade to Mojoportal 2.3.3.0 with mono 2.4.2.3

fyi, I notice you are using extra segments in your urls like  http://www.maisonpedia.com/construction/le-marche-de-la-maison-individuelle-repart-doucement.aspx

has an extra segment for /construction/

while this may work for you in some cases it is not supported and I do not recommend adding segments in the url to convey site hierarchy.

I never test those kind of urls and cannot promise they will work in current or future versions of mojoportal. If urlslike that do work in some versions of mojoportal it is merely happenstance.

This is discussed also in the document http://www.mojoportal.com/search-engine-optimization.aspx

So I do not consider this a bug. I recommend you remove the segments and setup 301 redirects from the segmented urls to new urls without additional segments using Adminstration > Advanced Tools > 301 Redirect Manager

The only case where extra segments are supported is when using multiple sites based on folder names, then there can be a segment for the folder which is only used to resolve the site id.

Best,

Joe

Re: Upgrade to Mojoportal 2.3.3.0 with mono 2.4.2.3

Thank you for your answer Joe,

Don't worry Joe. Yes, I have reverted to the previous version ;)
And I can wait for the next release.
To my knowledge creating a hierarchy is better for SEO
I think to let this functionality is a good thing for SEO. (So it's a very good bug !) :)
I hope I will see it in the next release

Thank you again Joe.

Re: Upgrade to Mojoportal 2.3.3.0 with mono 2.4.2.3

Hi Pierre-Alain,

It is not and has never been a design goal of mojoPortal to support extra hierarchy segments in the url.

Sorry to disappoint you but it is not going to be implemented and I do not consider it bug because it is not a design goal and it is not going to become a design goal any time soon. My advice is do not use extra segments and I cannot promise it will work in any future versions if you do use them.

I disagree that extra segments are needed for SEO. Short urls that convey the content of the page produce very good SEO and have the benefit of allowing you to move pages in the site hierarchy without breaking urls.

Note also that if you click the help link next to the url in page settings it clearly warns not to use extra segments in the url.

Best,

Joe
