Chris is the Co-founder, Administrator, Architect, Chief Editor and Shameless Hack who wrote and runs The Code Project. He's been programming since 1988 while pretending to be, in various guises, an astrophysicist, mathematician, physicist, hydrologist, geomorphologist, defence intelligence researcher and then, when all that got a bit rough on the nerves, a web developer. He is a Microsoft Visual C++ MVP both globally and for Canada locally.

His programming experience includes C/C++, C#, SQL, MFC, ASP, ASP.NET, and far, far too much FORTRAN. He has worked on PocketPCs, AIX mainframes, Sun workstations, and a CRAY YMP C90 behemoth but finds notebooks take up less desk space.

He dodges, he weaves, and he never gets enough sleep. He is kind to small animals.

Chris was born and bred in Australia but splits his time between Toronto and Melbourne, depending on the weather. For relaxation he is into road cycling, snowboarding, rock climbing, and storm chasing.

ASP.NET Community
United States United States
The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.

GeneralNew article URLs Pin
Chris Maunder20-Jan-12 17:22
adminChris Maunder20-Jan-12 17:22 
Previously our article URLs were of the form www.codeproject.com/kb/section/basename.aspx. This worked well and allowed you to easily remember your own articles. My grid control article, for instance, MFC Grid control 2.27, was an easy URL for me to remember.

The issue was that while this naming convention was simple, it was also predicated on each article within a section having a unique basename. With 35,000 articles, this was starting to become a little tricky.

On an unrelated, but nevertheless important note, we strive to ensure our authors' articles are positioned as high as possible within search engine rankings. Search engine ranking depends on an enormous number of variables, up to and including the phase of the moon, but while "http://www.codeproject.com/kb/miscctrl/gridctrl.aspx" is OK, "http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/8/MFC-Grid-control-2-27" is better. And "http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/317712/An-MFC-Chart-Control-with-Enhanced-User-Interface" is even better (from a search engine point of view) than "http://www.codeproject.com/kb/Chart/MFC-Chart.aspx".

And as a final but neat freebie, we have tossed the extension. No more .aspx. A trivial thing, but when Microsoft comes out with the Next Big Thing, or we move to PHP or JSP, then article links will be the same. This should be the last URL change we ever have to do for our articles.
cheers,
Chris Maunder
