I am searching the web for a Blog application which I could easily customized to fit into a new application being developed using master pages. So far I found www.dotnetblogengine.net but so far I haven't been able to make it really working the way we want.We need the basic features of a Blog plus the ability to make it multilingual (that means we won't have the same posts in each language) with a centralized administration also to fit under our master page.
I have created a blog application with ASP.NET MVC and MSSQL. I must say, i really enjoyed the process of creating an application with ASP.NET MVC. Clean URLS(with URL routing), No view States and so on.
BUT i was wondering how would this would have been done if i choose web-form style coding? will the aspx would be created in the fly as i create a article.(take this url for ex: [URL]) though the URL is not clean but still makes sense. if yes then what about its corresponding cs file? if no how is the URL so clean?
I'm trying to create a blog application. At the moment I have a page that accepts blog data and insterts it into a sql database, and then each blog is displayed in a grid view. All works well there. My problem is when it comes to displaying the replies for each blog. When a reply for a blog is posted the database is updated and a field called "ReplyBlogId" holds the id of the blog that the reply is for. I have tried using a gridview inside another gridview to display the replies but i need to pass the BlogId to the inner gridview so it knows what blogs to display.
I'm trying to figure out what the theory behind creating a tag cloud is. I would like to display one for my blog application. What information should be used? Should it calculate and get the information based on how many times a tag appears in blogs within a blog category?
I've looked articles on 4guysfromrolla and have seen the codeproject example but neither of them make much sense to me.
I'm want to make a BLOG site and that should be fully Dyanmic.Means from Questions to answers all should be fully Dyanmic but need admin approval to post.can you share some links where i can get more about this.
I am just planning to create a blog type of web application. But i am not understanding how do i rewrite url's? say suppose site is xyz.com then when some user registers with name of T then he can visit blog at T.xyz.com? As you can see the url's will keep on changing dynamically.
I don't want to keep creating sub domains for each new user joined on the site. How can i achieve this?
I'm an ASP.NET newbie, but not so new at programming in general.
I'm creating a commercial website, and I want to allow an admin to add new articles (an article consists of text, images and various properties such as category).
I am trying to decide the optimal Modus Operandi. This site is commercial, so SEO is a major consideration. This means that I want each url to be "unique". That is, if someone navigates to an article about raccoons, he should be redirected to [URL]. This means - I can't have one page that loads the appropriate article dynamically a-la AJAX (gotta use deep-linking)
So how exactly do I do this? suppose the admin entered his text, uploaded the images and set the article properties. I create a new subfolder, save the images to the server (I understand that saving images to a DB is a big no-no), their addresses in a DB, and the content itself to the DB. But now what?
How do I go about creating the actual page?
Is there a function for creating a new aspx file? then what about its corresponding cs file? Or is it unwise to use aspx? Maybe plain html? but then how does it work with my site's master page? Or maybe just create another copy of a general aspx file which is populated with an article according to a parameter?
I want to write a page where user's can write a blog post and publish it to the blog. I've downloaded blog engine .NET and looked at the code and I like the way they do it, but it's completely an overkill of what I need. What I need is only a title, author, date, and the blog post it self. I don't even want users to post comments or anything like that. My approach is to save all those blog post information into an xml and then when a page loads it loops around those xml files to show the blog post.
I would like to ask you about the tips to create basic search box with Visual Web Developer 2005 Express.
I don't understand this statement the sqlDataSource on the new page will need to use a different operator, called LIKE, in the search criteria, which allows you to search for text within a larger text block: e.g.
"database" is LIKE "this book is about databases" "data" is LIKE "this book is about databases" "oo" is LIKE "this book is about databases" "system" is NOT LIKE "this book is about databases"
I create a text box, a button, I also add sqldatasource and gridview to show the search result.
For instance: I use "Where" and choose colum "title" (that is from database file mdb) With Operator "Like" and Source " QueryString" . Then, I type "ID" in QueryString field. I do right, don't I?
The key is that I dunno how to link the text box + button with gridview!!
I am trying to figure out what are the basic assemblies required to run a basic ASP.NET 4.0 website. Say.. a website with just a label in it. I looked online and didn't find a list there. I know installing the framework 4.0 will give me all the dlls but I just need the basic ones that will make a basic site work on ASP.NET 4.0.
Im very new to ASP.net and have no experience with it at all.Im currently developing a website,and am confused about creating users.Im using the create user wizard,everything is working fine.However,I am worried about the security of user information.I believe the user information is stored in the APP_Data folder, am I right in believing that this folder is secure?
Exactly how is the user information stored when using the create a user wizard?In a database in the APP_Data folder?Is it encrypted automatically when a user signs up?
Do I need to make a Custom Membership Provider or is there another way?
I have a project using ASP.NET Forms Authentication and the Microsoft SQL Membership Provider. The website is DONE. I use this provider everywhere. (Register, Login, Forgot Password, etc...) Until now, my website users have not needed complex passwords. The users' passwords were really just pins. The user could select anything for a password in the past. I had almost no restrictions for this website because none of the data is private or personal. However I have received new requirements.
Here are the new password requirements:
Passwords must be at least 8 characters in length. Passwords must be created using 3 of the following 4 character types:
Uppercase Lowercase Numeric Punctuation
Do not use your name or User ID in the password. Do not use old passwords again later. Passwords must be changed at least every 60 days. Passwords may not contain your User ID or any part of your full name. Password history retention will prohibit use of the last 24 passwords. Passwords may be changed by users only once in any 6-day period.
I realize I am going to have to modify all of the following pages: Register, Login, Forgot Password, etc... fortunately I stopped using the default controls a long time ago.
My first thought was that I need to write a Custom Membership Provider. I don't know how to make the standard provider to do most of this. I could write code to do.
Do I modify the aspnet_membership table? Should I add my own table aspnet_something? Can the user profile table be used for this problem? Do I need my own MembershipUser class?
How do i change the default user name and password requirements. I wanna make the user name the person email address and i don't want it case sensitive.. I wanna make the mininum password to be 4 characters or numbers case sensitive. The maxinum password can be 10 characters or numbers.
I'm sure but for an individual at home writing web sites I assume I just want Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and NOT team foundation server, right? What are the minimum system requirements to run this (no doubt beast)? I have a Lenovo laptop running ultimate Vista - and the hardware is Duo Core 2.5 Ghz, and 4 gig of Ram, is that enough of a machine? Last, I own VS 2005, how does the licensing work for 2010, do I pay now, later, what?
What is the difference between Non-Functional Requirements and Quality Attributes? Imo, they are the same, and I think Quality Attributes is the term to use, because Non-Functional sounds strange to non-technical teammembers. "If it has no function, why should we implement it?"
Does the client require the .NET framework to be installed to run an ASP.NET application that is using the report viewer control? It is my understanding that all ASP.NET web applications can be run from any machine and that the .NET framework only needs to be installed on the server where IIS is running. Is this correct?
Is it ok to do multiple records update with the following requirements and be safe that the operation will not get timed out? A user requiring me to do the following using a web form:
I. Display a list of accounts in a GridView for multiple records insertion with no client side validation. Each account will accept new reading and posted date values.
II. Once the user presses the submit button, the following steps will be performed for each record at server side:
1. Check if new input data is for new or old period. A checkbox is to be selected in the form. 2. Check if new data has existing related records. Else this is first time insertion; get consumption result and save to db. 3. If records found, get previous reading and date. 4. Check if new reading and date is greater than previous reading/date else should inform the user. 5. Get new consumption = new reading - previous reading and some other operation. 6. A join select statement will be used to get the lowest and highest values (consumption) for current account. 7. Compare the new consumption result with previous consumption to give a status indication for new reading as either high, low or normal to be saved into the db. (# 6 values will be used here) 8. If everything goes ok, save new data into 3 different tables. 9. Display the GridView with new data.
The SQL server and the hosted page are in two different servers.
We are trying to implment some forms written in ASP.NET 2.0 and I'm trying to understand what Windows server version requirements are needed when contacting a web hosting provider etc? I see there are many versions from 1.0, 2.0, 3.5 and 4.0 which appears to be the latest version, well as far as I can see. Therefore if we sign up for hosting services and the provider only have only version 4 will this be backward compatible to support our ASP.NET 2.0 forms?
we are planning to use ASP .NET and Oracle Database, however, I don't know what are the requirements for developement/Production machine besides .NET Framework and Visual Studio 2008 Express edition.I am confused between various providers.
.NET Framework/VS 2008 Express.
Win2003 Server with IIS
please correct me if I am missing any other elements required to connect to a remote DB Server or Local one. If any provider is needed how do you deploy it at production server?
I have a site created in vs 2005, and the customer now wants to integrate a blog into the site. Of course there are PHP / MySql based solutions all over creation however I (of course) already have a dedicated box running IIS and SQL Server 2005. I don't want to install MySql and PHP if I don't need to.
Does anyone know of somthing .Net based - preferably .net 2.0? I would like to have the option of building the blog management into the existing management pages that I have created if need be, almost like a web control.
