Has anyone ever used YetAnotherForum?  My question is that I'm trying to change some text in a section.  But it seems that whenever I make changes to the codebehind pages it doesn't take affect.  Is this because it's compiled into the DLL?  If I make changes to the .aspx pages it shows up, but not the .cs pages.  If it's because it's compiled, is there a way to recompile it?  Can anyone help me here?

Never tried it, but if you are manually editing .cs file (in notepad, example), it wont have any effect until you recompile the dll/exe. This can be done in two ways:

1) easier - download either c# express, or VS studio trial, then recompile the project, or
2) harder, use a command line to compile it

btw, If its a web project, then you would need to download Visual Studio, or at least Web Developer Express, but I recommend Visual Studio

I am using Visual studio.  This is a website project.  So when I open it I go to Open Website.  How do I recompile the dll?  I tried doing Build Website but that didn't change anything.  I tried doing Publish Website, but that ended up just crashing the site for some reason.

When you open project in VS, do you see the cs file in it? Is this file  part of the main project, or part off the dll project? Do you change this file through VS?

I see all the files in it.  And yes I change the files through VS.  But I don't know how to recompile the DLL.

You didnt respond to main question and you are mixing terms. You said you opened a website project, and then you ask how to recompile dll. Is it a web project or a dll project? If solution has several projects in it, then find to what project this file belongs to, then right lick on a project and rebuild. If its a solution, then when you click on rebuild solution to rebuild ALL projects, and in output window you will receive message like

Rebuild All: 3 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 skipped, if there are 3 projects in it.

Okay I figured it out thanks to your help!  I opened the project itself and when I built it from there it would recompile the dll!  Thank you!!
