Default Wrox CMS in C#

I have made an attempt of converting the CMS application to C# using the converter at I converted the entire CMS app by removing Handles Me.Load from the page load events where errors occured during convertion. I then corrected various mistakes the converter had made when converting the syntax (mainly to do with accessing the connection string from the web.config).

But.. :( Visual Studio 2005 still lists 8 errors when I try to run the app. The most common error is 'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlControl.Attributes ' is a 'property' but is used like a 'method' being an ASP.NET 2.0 and C# novice I cant find a solution to this. An annoying feature of the code converter is that it removes all the code comments which I find a great help. I chose C# as I found it similar to Actionscript which was my only previous experience in OOP. The files can be downloaded from

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Great book by the way!! If only all .NET books could be based on real world solutions!
