Hello.

I'm not sure that i have the right club starter kit.

Is there something i can look for to tell if i downloaded the right files?

I see there are other sites that have it up and running, but i'm having all kinds of issues. I can't change contact details for users other than Administrators. I can't send emails. When i look at my details for editors or bloggers, it displays the administrators details.

I posed the email sending problem to discountAsp.net tech support, and they said that there must be a programming issue because they can send emails from my web site using a test.aspx file.

I must be an idiot. I can't get any of this stuff to work using CSK 2.0.

I didn't change any of the code, just verbage on the web pages and the menu to add new items.

I see numerous other web sites that are running based on this CSK. Either i'm too stupid to use this system or the web sites i see are not really working.

Zack has been a tremendous help, but i realize that he can't do everything. He has tried to help as much as he can. There is some other issue here that is causing problems and i don't know what to look for. The only thing i can think of is i downloaded a wrong version or something.

I took VB programming and ASP.NET classes at the local college and thought that i had enough knowledge to get something like the CSK to work.

I don't get it.

Do you think it could be a database issue? Are you able to browse news and events?

I recommend just downloading v2 Final, unpacking it, posting it on your site, and see if it works from there.

Hello Zack.

I'm sorry for the rant.

I don't think the problems i am having are database. However, i wil try your idea of uploading an unmodified version of CSK and see if it works any differently.

I did figure out why i could not email. I filled in these fields and that finally allowed me to send an email from my website.
<add key="ClubMailServer" value="mail.club.com" />
<add key="ClubMailUsername" value="admin@club.com" />
<add key="ClubMailPassword" value="password" />

I'm sorry, but i didn't think those settings were causing my problem.

Another item that i discovered is that non-administrators cannot add events. Is that the way it is supposed to be? I tried it with the unmodified CSK and it does the same thing, non-administrators cannot add events.

Do you have any ideas on that?

Thanks for all of your help and for being so patient.

Tony
