Portability of controls

Jan 27, 2011 at 4:50 PM

Hi there

I'm just wondering to what extent the ASCX controls in BlogEngine could be customised in order to be ported to an existing site? Is there much scope for reusing the controls in another site, for example, by referencing a DLL containing the ASCX controls? I'm thinking that it is possible to do this by opening the example web application in VS2008, and using a Web Deployment Project as per this example:

Does anybody have any experience of this sort of approach, and if so, what are the gotchas to look out for?

Regards
