I appreciate the help. I don't mean to seem too hard headed, but the zipped folder I downloaded "BlogEngine2.5(web).zip" doesn't have a .SLN file in it. I did a search on the extracted folder with *.sln and no file was found. I even unzipped
the original download again and searched that one the same way (with *.sln) and no SLN file was found. Both of these instances of the unzipped original files were searched before I put them in a project or did anything to them. They were both 100%
in their original state. So reinstallation should only produce the sme results. So would downloading it again.
The other thing that doesn't make sense is that I can write to App_Data/blogroll.xml through the control panel but not App_Data/settings.xml. I also had the issue of the readonly attribute defaulting back to the undetermined state, a blue box, even
after I applied everything the way I should've. I finally got around this by setting this attribute at the command line as admin. I could then only change the App_Data/settings.xml manually, not with the control panel. This enabled me to
finally change the stuff in the header of the masterpage.
There seems to be something wrong with the code somewhere. It doesn't make sense to be able to write to one xml file and not another in the same directory.
The .SLN file is created when the project is built. I just created a fresh website project, standard vwd 2010 basic project, to test the theory that the .SLN file isn't the issue. I deleted the .SLN file after the first time it built and ran.
I then re built it and a new .SLN file appeared. It created a new one as part of the build process.
I hope I'm explaining this well. I want to get this working the way it should. I'm really excited about this product.
Are you guys thinking of the BlogEngine2.5(source) download and not the BlogEngine2.5(web)?
Do my explanations make sense?
On the download page it says the code was updated a couple weeks ago. I'm wondering if something was mistakenly changed. I'm grabbing at straws because nothing wlse makes sense.
