I use asp.net for several sites, but can't figure out the small business kit. I work from webpages which use code at the top and html at the bottom, you can typically switch between design and source and add controls via a toolbox at the left. I can put
together a website in a couple hours and do so all the time with an odd item I call "web pages" joined together in a "web project".
so with Small Business kit, there are no pages with asp controls, no code, etc. so how do you decipher this? What is the organization of this? It looks nice, but I have to be able to deciper within a few years.
Just a pointer would help...where do you change the name of the company? I downloaded the site, they offer no help and directed me here.

Does the starter kit use code behind files?

The details are classes in the App_Code directory. There are class modules for Catalog, News, People, Testimonials.
Heres a snip....

I would use some caution prior to "just downloading". See http://forums.asp.net/t/1219177.aspx
If you have a system that works use it.

The Small Business Starter Kit uses a Master Page for a lot of the personalization. Start there.
Downloading it and looking at it with Visual Studio will be very helpful to you. Also a lot of the personalization happens in the xml or sql files.
I'm using it at http://www.hillcresthsdallas.org
