ASP response.redire ct: absolute or relative addressing or both?

1 New Member
Can you use relative addressing when using response.redire ct; i.e something that would look like this
<% if session("superu ser") <> true then response.redire ct "../../../edit/logout.asp" %>
or does it have to be absolute addressing. For the life of me I canít find this explicitly written anywhere and I have been using file and virtual to include other pages so Iím curious to know how redirect works. I apologise if this question is silly for some but Iím not an asp programmer, I am just helping updating an existing asp site.

Thank you for your time

What is right and what is wrong, I can't say. But I prefer to use absolute. And the reason for that is that let's say i want to have a list of start pages. And I want to include that as my navigation on all pages. If you use relative, it is possible that more times than not you will end up redirecting to a page that doesn't exist. If on the other hand you use absolute, then you always go to where you are expecting.

Hi gang, This one looks like a bug :o( As you may or may not know, setting session management in web.config to use cookieless sessions causes the ASP.NET runtime to munge a session ID into the URL, in the format http://yourapplicationpath/(Session.SessionID)/... which saves numerous headaches when it comes to storing state across page...

A customer of ours using .NET 2.0 on Win2003 is seeing relative URLs passed to Response.Redirect() being converted to absolute URLs in the Location header. For example '/test.aspx' becomes 'http://www.myserver.com/test.aspx'. We're not able to reproduce this on our machines. Does anyone know of a setting or configuration that would cause...

do I have to prefix every absolute path with document root to get it to work? For some reason I thought that prefixing a path with '/' or './' with make it absolute w.r.t to document root but I guess not? e.g., when I do include './Scripts/AddNav.php';
