Classic ASP Support in IIS 7 and IIS 7.5

I’m working on reverse engineering an application that was written about 8 years ago in Classic ASP. When I first hit the site, one of the things I noticed was that the traditional error messages weren’t displayed. You can turn this on by double-clicking on the ASP icon under IIS, finding compilation, and expanding debugging properties. You’ll see that one of the properties in IIS is called Send Errors To Browser. Set that property to true and you’re all set!

Things have been quite busy with me lately and thus my post count has dropped significantly. Nope, I haven’t dropped off the earth. I have been working pretty hard on a few projects that I’ll hopefully be able to shed some light on soon. I gave an MVC…

Minifying HTML and JavaScript Using Microsoft Expression Web

I don’t get an opportunity to use Microsoft Expression Web that often, but when I do, I always discover new features. I was looking for a way to compress HTML and JavaScript files that I was generating for one of our affiliations. In Expression Web, simply go to Tools > Optimize HTML to see a list of options. Just remember to resave your files as a different name in case you remove comments unless the comments can be lost. If you need to take a .min file or a compressed file and see a more fluent version of the source, you can right-click in the source window and choose Reformat HTML to reformat the source.

Google Ignoring Feedburner

It appears that Google is ignoring Feedburner and the customer base that comes along with it. Google is in the process of forcing customers to switch their feed syndication from Feedburner over to Google, however, they seem to have some issues and don’t seem to be answering the questions being posed by Feedburner customers. I have an issue where after migration the MyBrand functionality stopped working. I’ve tried using their funky CNAME value for my feed, but that doesn’t seem to work. According to the response from the community on my question, I need to change it to a generic CNAME value. Who knows how long this will work (or if it will). I wish Google would stop ignoring the Feedburner customers.
