Join Jess Chadwick for an in-depth discussion in this video Customize your application's URLs, part of Learn ASP.NET Core MVC: The Basics.
- [Narrator] Defining a single global route…for your entire site as I've shown…is a really convenient and effect way…to map any URLs in your application…to a controller and action.…And there are a lot of very successful applications…written just this way.…Personally however, I don't like to be restricted…by a single convention across my entire site.…Instead I like to have the ability…to attach any custom URL that I want…and create vanity URLs such as slash log in,…that don't necessarily have anything to do…with the name of the controller…or the action that handles them.…
To help demonstrate why we might want to customize…our site's URLs,…let's take a look at how our default route configuration…drives our URLs right now.…Keep in mind that our default route…currently follows the pattern of…slash controller, slash action, slash ID…which means that if we want to view…a blog post with the ID of one,…then we'd have to navigate to slash blog, slash post…slash one.…However, wouldn't it be nice…if we could make this URL a little more meaningful.…
