Hi guys, got another quick question:

Does linkfreeze support static link mapping or is it just used for character replacement?

Forgot to ask if Linkfreeze has a file size or volume limitation.

By static map I guess you mean www.mysite.com/category/name ->>> www.mysite.com/default.asp?id=332
No this is not possible. LinkFreeze is an automated solution and such kind of mapping cannot be achieved automatically. You can use ISAPI_Rewrite to do this, but actually there is a better solution that static mapping. Please explain your requirements in details (with URL examples) and I will suggest solution for you.

I am moving a website over to a new domain. Is there a way I can have links automatically setup to redirect to the new domain?

For example http://www.mysite.com/ProductInfo~productid~50026.html to translate to http://www.myNEWsite.com/ProductInfo~productid~50026.html

I am interested in both an automated way to do this for pages that are exactly the same, as well as a manual way for sites that have different  file names with the same content.

Thanks.

It can be done with ISAPI_Rewrite product. The rules would look like the following:

#Manual rules first

RewriteCond Host: (?:www\.)?oldsyte\.com
RewriteRule /somepage.asp http\://www.newsite.com/otherpage.htm [I,RP]

#Not more than 100 manual rules

#Then general rule
RewriteCond Host: (?:www\.)?oldsyte\.com
RewriteRule (.*) http\://www.newsite.com$1 [I,RP]

Thanks for the quick response Yaroslav.

Am I to assume that the general rule you have listed will automatically translate links such as:
http://www.site1.com/link1.html to translate to:
http://www.site2.com/link1.html

This sounds like a good solution to me, aside for the 100 rule limit, but I understand this is probably for performance reasons.

So if I was using this in conjunction with LinkFreeze, I assume I would use the original link names and not the ones that are re-written correct?

Thanks.

LinkFreeze and ISAPI_Rewrite can work side by side. What link format you need to use depends on the configuration and desired effect. LinkFreeze will automatically change links on pages according to the selected LinkFreeze transformation settings, but it knows nothing about ISAPI_Rewrite rules.
