If you are converting an old app which uses the old style of web.config. For example, having multiple config files named dev, qa, live etc. and you want to use the new transform build features.

You have go to the properties of the web.config, Build Action: Content. Otherwise, publishing will publish all the .config files.

Add this to your Global.asax.cs file -


        void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)

        void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)

            // Ignore request for resource files

            // Register a route for forms/{formName}



There's many different ways to reference this route in your code -


Page.GetRouteUrl("SignOnRequest", new { formName = "signonrequest" });

I just upgraded my site from 3.5 to 4.0.  Ran into a problem with adding entries to my blog.  When saving new posts with HTML the app was blowing up.  Here is the solution.


    <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
    <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />
