You can rewrite/route the URL before it actually hits a page, to do this add your routing code in global.asax's

protected void Application_BeginRequest(object sender, EventArgs e)

event. If you are already on the page (eg Employer_login.aspx) you can use


To redirect a URL in Application_BeginRequest you can use:

Context.RewritePath("new URL comes here", true);

to send someone to a different URL.

and Request.Url to check the URL the user entered, get the QueryString, etc.

Here's a simple example that will add .aspx to any URL entered where there is an .aspx file at the location but the URL was specified without it:
(eg user entered yourwebsite/default and you wish to change it to yourwebsite/default.aspx):

//The physical file that has been requested.
var requestedfile = Server.MapPath(Request.Url.AbsolutePath);
//The extension of the file.
var filetype = Path.GetExtension(requestedfile).ToLower();
//The query parameters as the sole parameters of the url
var incomingparamsdir = incomingparams.Length > 0 ? "?" + incomingparams : "";
if ((filetype == "." || filetype == "") && requestedfile.Length > 0)
    filetype = ".aspx";
    requestedfile = Path.ChangeExtension(requestedfile, ".aspx");
    if (File.Exists(requestedfile))
        Context.RewritePath(Path.ChangeExtension(Request.Url.AbsolutePath, ".aspx") + incomingparamsdir);

Hope this solves your issue.
