Publishing options - to stop site recompiling

I right in saying that if i ,

1) goto visual studio,
2) open project,
3) goto menu build
4) publish web site.

And in order to simply avoid the website recompiling when files are added, all I have to do then is UNCHECK "Allow this precompiled site to be updatable"?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can publish once, then add files manually to your published files later.

Ok i agree but the thing i'm questioning sorry is whether or not checking the "Allow this precompiled site to be updatable" box will allow recompiles after its released e.g. if i add file to the site will it recompile ?
Mortaza DoulatyCommented:
When you select "Allow this precompiled site to be updatable", it means that:
Specifies that the content of .aspx pages are not compiled into an assembly; instead, the markup is left as-is, allowing you to change HTML and client-side functionality after precompiling the Web site. Selecting this check box is equivalent to adding the -u option to the aspnet_compiler.exe command.

Ok thanks for that but does this also mean that the site won't recompile if files are added to the solution when live?
Mortaza DoulatyCommented:
I do not think so.
It discusses the published files, not the source code.
It says that the just published site, can be updatable or not in the way mentioned before, not the source code files.

Thanks so is there any way to do this within VS ?

>>is there any way to do this within VS ?

To do what? Would you please describe more in details...
paulCardiffAuthor Commented:
Sure i mean precompile the application / publishing a site - in such a way that it won't recompile when i add pages or change the webconfig etc

I know you can do this in the command prompt but does VS Suport this in anyway?
Mortaza DoulatyCommented:
You can right click in the solution explorer and select "View in Browser"
In this case, without recompiling manually, your web site starts and your newly added pages are automatically compiled without your notice.
