Chapter 2. Building an ASP.NET Web Site > CREATING WEB SITES WITH VWD 2010

2.1. CREATING WEB SITES WITH VWD 2010

The previous chapter gave you a quick overview of creating a web site in VWD. You simply chose New Web Site from the File menu, selected a language, selected the standard ASP.NET Web Site template, and clicked OK. However, there's more to the New Web Site dialog box than you saw in the previous chapter. You may have noticed that you can choose among a number of different templates that enable you to create different kind of sites. But before looking at the different templates on which you can base your new web site, you need to know a little more about the different project types that are available in VWD.

2.1.1. Different Project Types

In the initial release of Visual Web Developer 2008 Express you could only use one project type: the Web Site Project. You needed one of the commercial versions of Visual Studio in order to use the second project type — the Web Application Project. In August 2008, Microsoft released Service Pack 1 for Visual Web Developer 2008, which gave users of the free Express edition access to the Web Application Project template as well. This addition is still present in VWD 2010 so you now have two options to choose from. Both project types are discussed next.
