I am trying to create a web page in asp.net 1.1. I want my pages to have a consistent feel. I already have the css for the pages

I am a php programmer and this is how I usually do it.

Click a link (FAQS index.php?faqs=1) it takes you to index.php.


index.php
example:

include  ('top.php'); // top.php is the design for the top of the page

//this is where the content will be displayed
 if(isset($_GET['faqs']))
{
     include('faqs.php');
}

include ('bottom..php'); //bottom.php is the bottom of the page

in asp.net you can use UserControls(*.ascx),

you can create and code  usercontrols like pages, and when you finished them, you can make a page(*.aspx), and then drag an drop your ascx where you want in your page

I was doing that but I got an error:

A page can have only one server-side Form tag.

How can I bypass this problem?

>>I was doing that ...

it means that you create 3 user controls, for example top.ascx, bottom.ascx and faqs.ascx,
and a page for example detail.aspx, and then drag and drop user controls in the page(in design view)??

did you drag and drop the user controls in the page from the design view, from solution explorer?

how do you insert a user control to your solution?
did you create a page and then rename it to ascx?

Yes, I think the problem is that I have two runat="server" in the code, because of the user control, and a regular text box.

you don't create the ascx user controls like this,

you should insert a user control to a solution in this way:

right click on your project in solutionb explorer, and then "Add" --> "Add Web User Control"

i do exactly the same thing you are trying to do.  Here is what you are looking for

in html

<asp:placeholder runat=server id=ph1 />

in page load event

dim controller as string = request.querystring("controller")

if controller = "page1" then
 dim c as control = page.loadcontol(request.applicationpath + "/UserControls/Page1.ascx")
 ph1.controls.add(c)
elseif controller = "page2" then
 dim c as control = page.loadcontol(request.applicationpath + "/UserControls/Page2.ascx")
 ph1.controls.add(c)
and so on..

in html
<asp:placeholder runat=server id=ph1 />

in page load event
string controller = Request.QueryString.Get("controller");

                  if(controller == "abc")
                  {
                        Control c = Page.LoadControl(Request.ApplicationPath + "/abcContent.ascx");
                        ph1.Controls.Add(c);
                  }

in abcContent.ascx

<%@ Control Language="C#" EnableViewState="False" %>

<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
      <asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></P>
      </form>

I still continue to get the same error.

you should create a user control, by adding a user control to your solution not to rename a web page

see this:

its a page source:
<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="WebForm.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="eeapplicationcs.WebForm" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" > 

<html>
  <head>
    <title>WebForm</title>
    <meta name="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 7.1">
    <meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" Content="C#">
    <meta name=vs_defaultClientScript content="JavaScript">
    <meta name=vs_targetSchema content="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5">
  </head>
  <body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
      
    <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">

     </form>
      
  </body>
</html>

and its a user control source:

<%@ Control Language="c#" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="WebUserControl.ascx.cs" Inherits="eeapplicationcs.WebUserControl" TargetSchema="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5"%>


as you see there is no form in the user control source
