Newbie - trying to publish to my spamhole

  • I have downloaded the personal website starter kit and have followed
    the instructions provided by [][1] for "creating an 5
    personal web site", but its still not working.
    I think there is an error in my web.config file and below is the debug message I'm getting when I try to run the site.

    Line 5:  	Sub Application_Start(ByVal sender As [Object], ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Line 6:  		AddHandler SiteMap.SiteMapResolve, AddressOf Me.AppendQueryString
    Line 7:  		If (Roles.RoleExists("Administrators") = False) Then
    Line 8:  			Roles.CreateRole("Administrators")
    Line 9:  		End If

    Source File: C:\Documents and Settings\aysel\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\WebSites\aysellsView\global.asax Line:

    The instructions I followed from http:/ /

    Mod - PJH: Re-inserting URL since TL0's can't post them.
    Mod - bz: Sabotaging URL because I suspect spam. Waiting and seeing...
    Mod - bz: Anonymized this spammer and edited out the spammy site

  • Abused my mod TL3 powers to move it to appropriate category.

    What's the actual error? All we have is a line, and seemingly an innocent one. Do you have a proper Imports statement there? Does it run on your PC?

    There's a single equals (assignment) instead of a double equals (equality comparison). I bet that's the problem.

    @Alexia_Pamelov, have you tried If (Roles.RoleExists("Administrators") == False) Then
    Nevermind, this appears to be VB.

  • Wrong bet, welcome to VB. = means both here.

    That is VB.NET. It doesn't have "==".

    Oh, this is VB codebehind? That'd be a good thing to note in the OP. Withdrawn then.

    It'd be good to know what exception is being thrown… if one is being thrown, that is…
