I basically asked this question in 'Web Development', took some time to look into the issue and what I thought would be a solution but, alas, i'm still not sure how to implement this yet. Basically i'm developing an application as a moonlighting project and I need a functionality that can be found at some sites. In any case, the site is going to have unique 'sub pages' that are actually just modified master pages with dynamic data but I need the ability to give the users a path directly to their... for lack of a better term 'profile' (This fits the myspace example anyhow.)
So basically what I need is to get a sub folder name out of the URL and use that name to query against the database for the specific page the user has requested.
So for example typing
www.myspace.com/winksofthebtypeinto your browser will take you to my myspace profile. The 'winksofthebtype' is a unique key, specific to my profile and none others. How can either implement or 'fake' this functionality with ASP? I pondered using URL parsing, but IIS will try to serve up that subfolder before the application can even get to it. Any suggestions would be great.
And no, i'm not doing another 'Myspace'
