I'm in the process of integrating a third-party forum application into my asp.net 3.5 website.  I'm using Visual Studio 2008.  I'm new to .net development but have gotten the basic functionality of the forum to work.  I've been unable to integrate the forum pages with the master page of my main site, but that's an issue for another time.  Right now I'm trying to add tracking code directly to each forum page.  The code works successfully on the master page, but since the forum pages are not code-behind, I'm not sure exactly how to add it to the aspx page.

The code snippet contains the tracking code and the attachment contains the aspx file I'm adding it to, with extension changed from aspx to txt
thanks

Hi,
You can add the code into a <script> tag in the aspx pages. E.g.


<head runat="server">
<title>Untitled Page</title>
<script type="text/VB">
       'VB Functions go here
</script>
</head>

thanks, M3mph15, I appreciate the prompt response.  When I structure the head as you say, the page executes without an error but the function doesn't seem to run.  I've reduced the head to a simplified version in the snippet - if I can get it to run I'll replace it with the database insert.
<%@ Page language="VB" Inherits="dotForumClientUsers.viewAllUsers" %>
 
<head  runat="server"> 
<title>Untitled Page</title> 
<script type="text/VB"> 
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Response.write("testing script")
    End Sub
</script>
        <link href="gfx/forum/themes/fixed1024/fixed1024.css" rel="stylesheet" 
        type="text/css" />
</head>

ok, I fixed it.  However, suggested structure was:

<head runat="server">
<title>Untitled Page</title>
<script type="text/VB">
       'VB Functions go here
</script>
</head>

but this didn't work for me - the script didn't execute.   the actual structure that worked is:

<head>
<title>Untitled Page</title>
<script runat="server" language="VB">      
'VB Functions go here
</script>
</head>
