Default Wrox Blog in C#

I ported Wrox Blog application to C#.
I did code translation of the "modified" version.

You can find the code here: http://www.madalan.com/WroxBlogCS.zip.

For problems or bugs please write me an e-mail.

Hi Alan,

Wonderful! You did a very thorough job.

I looked at the code and it's all there and works fine!

Thanks a lot; I am sure others on this forum will appreciate this as well....

Thanks Alan! I've made this post sticky as I know several readers will probably want to find this code.

This is fantastic!  A friend of mine just asked me to add a blog to his web site.  I downloaded your code and it does exactly what I need without making any modifications to the code.  That's incredible.  I don't know anything about VB.NET, but I ordered the book after I saw that people were posting C# porting of the code here.

The only thing I need to do now is change the design to look like his web pages and I'm good to go without having to charge him for the hours and hours of programming it would have taken me to do this from scratch.

I'm just blown away that this whole entire thing is self-contained in Visual Web Developer Express and none of it costs a dime.  That is simply amazing.  I have the full version of Visual Studio, but I used the Visual Web Developer Express Edition just to check this out.

I'm still doing a lot of stuff the way I did it with ASP.NET 1.1 and I can see things have gotten a lot easier with ASP.NET 2.0.

Hi Carl,

Glad you like it so much.

To change the look and feel, all you need to change is the site's Default.aspx page. Alternatively, you can integrate the user controls in your current site / design / master page.

Most of the styling is done in the CSS file, so you should take a look there too.

Basically, the user controls just define the data to be displayed; they are built in such a way that they can easily take the design from their container page or CSS file.

Good luck and have fun,

Imar

You can see what I did with it, here:

http://mikepalecek.com/Blog.aspx

Yes, I changed the style, stuck it into a master page template, and changed the data connection to run it off an instance of SQL Server 2005 Express.

Very cool.  I just got your book in the mail today.

Thanks!

PS - by the way, the version of FCKeditor you are using does not work in Safari or Firefox 2.0.0.3 on Mac OSX.  I went to the FCKeditor web site and tried the demo there and it does not work with Safari, but it does work with Firefox.  I'll try to upgrade it and see if I can get it to work on a Mac.  The author I built this web site for is using Max OSX.

Looks very familiar.... ;)

BTW: the FCKEditor does indeed not support Safari, although it seems they are at least investigating it: http://www.fckeditor.net/safari

Have fun with the book.

They claim the FCKeditor supports Firefox on Mac, but they don't mention version 2.  I'm impressed that Adobe has decided to use FCKeditor, but I can't get it to work on a Mac at all.  I tried the newest version and it still doesn't work in either Firefox or Safari.  I installed FreeTextBox and now I'm waiting for my friend to tell me if it is working.  FreeTextBox claims to support Firefox version 2 on Mac.  I can't test it until I get back to work on Monday because I don't have a Mac at home.

And, by the way, thank you for writing this book. I was looking for a good blog with open source code I could tweak and it only took me few minutes to find your book and there was the code I was looking for. It's simple, but efficient - just perfect.

Yeah, simple and efficient were two of the design goals of the Blog application. It's nice to see that the concepts actually work and that you can really incorporate it in an existing application in no time.

Is FreeTextBox working for you?
