Thanks Imar and Doug for your fast responses!! makes the book worth ten times its value and why I personally favour wrox over its competitors!!

I have added the missing events on the aspx pages from the code behind files. Does VB.Net not require the event handlers applied to the controls in the aspx files?

I am currently having trouble with getting the main content for the articles thus preventing me viewing or editing it.

When converting the code from VB I altered the SQL data reader "myReader" and I think this maybe causing the problem:

    public static Content GetItem(int id)
        Content theContentItem = null;
        string cnString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["Cms"].ConnectionString;
        SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(cnString);
            SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand("sprocContentSelectSingleItem", myConnection);
            myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@id", id);
            SqlDataReader myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection);

                if (myReader.Read())
                    theContentItem = new Content(myReader.GetInt32(myReader.GetOrdinal("Id")));
                    theContentItem.Title = myReader.GetString(myReader.GetOrdinal("Title"));
                    theContentItem.IntroText = myReader.GetString(myReader.GetOrdinal("IntroText"));
                    theContentItem.BodyText = myReader.GetString(myReader.GetOrdinal("BodyText"));
                    theContentItem.ContentTypeId = myReader.GetInt32(myReader.GetOrdinal("ContentTypeId"));
                    theContentItem.CategoryId = myReader.GetInt32(myReader.GetOrdinal("CategoryId"));
                    theContentItem.Visible = myReader.GetBoolean(myReader.GetOrdinal("Visible"));
        return theContentItem;

Any help would be great!!! Thanks again.
