Friendly Provider Not Changing Urls?


Hi. Here's my environment:
  • DNN 7.0.6 CE
  • Url Master 2.7.1 (Build Date 5/29/13)
  • Ventrian News Articles 0.9.5
  • IIS 7.5 (Windows 2008 R2 Standard Edition)
    • App Pool: Integrated Mode, .NET 4
  • SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition
Url Master has been working beautifully for several days. I just installed the News Articles provider today, and I must be overlooking something simple, but my Ventrian News Article URL's have not changed.

I've attached 3 snapshots of my configuration screens.

Here's the Url for my main articles page:
All of the articles there still have the gnarly, long News Articles Urls that we all know and love.

Here's are the settings in my web.config
<moduleFriendlyUrl defaultProvider="None">
    <add name="iFinity.NewsArticles" type="iFinity.NewsArticles.ModuleFriendlyUrlProvider.NewsArticlesModuleProvider, iFinity.NewsArticlesFriendlyUrlProvider">
        <portal portalId="0" isActive="true" tabIds="56,94" redirectUrls="True" startingArticleId="1" articleUrlStyle="94,BlogStyle;56,BlogStyle;" articleUrlSource="94,Title;56,Title;" pageUrlStyle="94,PageTitle;56,PageTitle;" authorUrlStyle="94,DisplayName;56,DisplayName;" categoryUrlStyle="94,CatName;56,CatName;" noDnnPagePathTabId="94" />

What have I not set correctly?

The Urls for the site show /ctl/ArticleView/mid/498/articleId/22/ etc. I don't normally see the /ctl/ArticleView as part of the Url. This is likely to be preventing the generation of the friendly Url.

I would expect to see something like /articleType/ArticleView/ArticleId/22/etc

Perhaps check your news agent settings?

You were correct. The "Launch Links" option had been enabled within NA. Once I disabled it, the urls cleaned up nicely.

The setting location is here in case anyone else runs into this issue:
 Admin Options -> Main Options -> Basic Settings
      Launch Links    (check box)
Thanks for the help, Bruce!

See Ya,
