I picked the first one, because I thought that it would be the easiest and least complicated to understand and work with.  I have the same question.  You posted this some time ago, I guess nobody knows.  I am only posting this so it will show up again, and maybe someone will address it.  Thanks.

I don't know about the extended, but I worked with the Club Site Starter Kit for several days and got stuck when needing to actually get it to do something, like adding members.  So, last night, I downloaded the Codeplex Club Site Starter Kit.  Now this one is awesome.  It has some documentation that went a long way to getting me started on the right track.  It is easy to use and has some really good features.  It may have been easier partly due to my having already worked with the first one, and partly because I am using SQL Express at home and had already figured out that you needed to attach the database.  But, everything comes ready to go, in this version and the neat thing is that you and others can contribute to the future development.  So, I am going to stick with this one.

This is just my opinion as a part-time asp.net hack, but here's my take on it:

The Club Starter Kit (CSK) is the original.  It really caught on and this forum was quite active for quite awhile.  Although it had some bugs and wasn't really designed to be very extensible, it was used to produce quite a few live club web sites.  The activity has died down significantly, but there is a *lot* of information buried in this forum on fixing the various bugs, adding some new features, and getting it working with some hosting companies.

There were requests to add additional capability and features - which led to the Extended Club Starter Kit (ECSK).  For whatever reason, the ECSK never seemed to cause much activity in this forum.  My site, based on the original CSK, was already in production by the time the ECSK came out and I didn't find any new "must have" features to cause me to make the switch.  From what I recall, the ECSK shared much of the original CSK code.

The CSK 2.0 is a separate project designed to take the CSK to a new level - new features, eliminate bugs, etc.  It is a fairly significant depature from the original CSK (major code changes).  Although it has some nice features, I haven't switched to it because I would have to redo all of the customization that I've done to my production site.  Since the code is quite different, that would be a major effort that just isn't worth it at this point.

If I were starting from scratch today, I would *probably* go with the CSK 2.0.  The only hesitation is that I don't know how well it works with hosting companies that use medium trust (like GoDaddy.com).

Extending the Club Web Site Starter Kit #2
Has anyone succsefully implemented the File Management System described here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa479335.aspx ?   Yes, I implemented it plus cleaned it up some.  The version in the article is a good starting point and teaching tool, but it's a little light on error handling.  It didn't gracefully handle things like file names and comments that are too long or uploading a file with the same name twice.  Those problems were easy enough to fix.   How did you create an Admin name for the initial login.

Upgrade 4.0.0 Starter Kit to 4.0.1 Starter kit

However now that 4.0.1 has arrived I do not see how I can upgrade to it easily and the upgrade of starter kits does not seem to be mentioned in the 4.0.1 documentation? Could anybody please advise? Many thanks Richard. I'm in the same boat, can't find an easy way to upgrade my DNN site created with the starter kit version 4.0.0.

Club Starter Kits
Hi, I've played around with the Club Starter Kit and then upgraded to Visual 2008 Express, and SQL Express 2008.  Now nothing works.  Do the starter kits not work with these upgrades? Thanks, Ciaran It works fine for me.  However, I did *not* let VWD update my site to ASP.NET 3.5. Agreed - Do not upgrade the starter kit to .net 3.5 or the club starterkit will not work.ASPStarterKit.com - Helping get your ASP Starter Kit online;  It is possible to upgrade the club starter kit to 3.5, although not without a lot of fixing.

Very newbie question on launching Club Starter Kit 2.0....

I also have SQL Server Express 2005 to support the database.) I selected File - Open Web Site, and opened the main directory for the CSK files. When prompted, I said Yes to convert the asp.net 2.0 application to asp.net 3.5. I hit F5 (as suggested by the CSK documentation) to launch the app. I got this message: "There were build errors. Would you like to continue with the last successful build?" This didn't l...

Deploying the Club Site Starter Kit
Since I have started working with the Club Site Starter Kit I have gathered much information...but I am missing a few pieces.1. Since ASP.NET Configuration is not available once the site is deployed to remote host (in most cases) is it true that developing locally and creating an administrator role and login locally and then backing up and restoring the database to the remote host will be enough to retain said administrator login and role?2. Are the databases for the Club Site and Extended Club Site the same? Schemas? etc.3. If I create a login and name it to administrator (locally) will thi...

Club Site Starter Kit Install
I downloaded the Club Site Starter Kit, now how do I get it to run.  I do not see an application file to run.  Am I missing something with the setup? You need to use VS2005 and open the club.vsi file.  You will also need to create the DB schema by using the ClubAdd.sql scripts that are provided. That is the bare minimum, do a little digging and you will see that it is not the a terrible three horned beast.  I got the club starter kit up and running on my own server within 15 minutes of downloading it. http://67.164.255.166:8029/default.aspx I have not made many cha...
