Hi, I started a new empty site, then used the admin featuure to go and download the VB examples such as the gallery, etc,. I then closed out that site and tried to start a new site using the VB examples, and they are not listed on the templates even though
I did install them? What's up ? I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but can't figure it out right now.. Any help would be most appreciated..

Once you have downloaded a VB "template" you need to fiddle around with it to get it to appear in your list of available templates. Here's how: http://www.mikesdotnetting.com/Article/169/Creating-A-Custom-Template-For-WebMatrix

Downloaded templates will not be listed on the templates.
You can open that one by choosing 'Open Site' and 'Folder as Site'. It is usually in the My Documents/ My Web Sites folder.

Thanks so much. I have book marked that as I don't have time to read it now, but I can see already it's going to be good. I just opened the files as a webmatrix app and then I'm using the code I need.. and then when I need to get back to the site I just
re open it in the "My sites" option in Webmatrix.
