Quick Tips


Don't Forget that Final /

While this isn't really an ASP tip, it's important just the same. When you're trying a hyperlink to another location and aren't specifying a file name, be sure to include a trailing /. Without it the client will need to do two roundtrips to the server to arrive at the right page. The first to check for the existence of an extensionless file and the second to get the default page you were intending.

For example, if you're trying to reach the default document in the test directory,

<a href="/test">

will result in two requests while

<a href="/test/">

will arrive at the same page with just one!
