Using Visual Studio.NET to customize forums


These forums are a great piece of work but I want to tweak the application for my own specific needs using Visual Studio.NET and Visual SourceSafe. I note that they do not use the codebehind format and as such using VS.NET is a bit of a pain. Is there a VS version of the source code? If not, what's the best way to go about it?
Thank you.

Has anyone got an answer for this?

I too would like to be able to get this working in visual studio. I open the default aspx page and get a bunch of :
"Error creating control" boxes.
Is there a way to open the forum in visual studio?
If someone could just give a little advice I'm sure it would be apprecitated.
I've downloaded the .exe file and run it to install the forum. I can load the forum and it loads fine.
Now I want to see how it works to get some sort of understanding of, so I would like to load up the forum code and tinker around to see how it interrelates. I've also seen a bunch of .cs files in and engine directory. How do these relate?
Thanks for any help.

I also want to use VS.NET to manipulate the forums.  I installed the EXE and when I tried loading the "Microsoft Visual Studio Solution" project file and try to run says that "a project with output type of class library cannot be started directly.  Can't get it to run.  And the design forms show controls with "error creating control" over top of them.  How to get it running?  Thanks for any help.

Since the only response this thread has gotten has been for getting help to get the forums running in visual studio, I can only assume that it is impossible to do.

I find that a little disappointing.
Oh well, what can one do?

Open the project file 'AspNetWebForums.csproj' with a text editor.
Replace ProjectType = "Local" with ProjectType = "Web"
Then open your solution file, I think it will run properly at that time.

Thanks for the suggestion Hoverup, but I'm trying to do the same and it's still not working.  When I do as you say, it tells me I need to open it with the url path, but since the Engine folder is seperate from the AspNetForums folder which is the web room, I can't do it.

I guess this means I need to get comfortable with the command line tools, then?

-In the Project Properties find 'Configuration Properties', 

-find 'Debugging' and then set 'Debug Mode' to 'URL' and set 'Start URL' to your start page: 'http://localhost/aspwebforums/default.aspx",
-plus set 'Enable ASP.NET Debugging' to True, we need all this as this project is a library, not a web project.

Visual Basic.NET or Visual Studio.NET?
OK, this has probably been asked before... I'm a student looking to cut my costs, and I can do this by just purchasing Visual Basic.NET as opposed to the fully-fledged Visual Studio.NET application.

I'd also like to know if VB.NET has IntelliSense, or that's a specific option only available to Visual Studio.NET users. Thanks in advance. I'd have to believe that VB.Net has intellisense. What is the price d...
