    I have recently migrated a 3.7 site to 4.2.1733 and I have several classic asp controls that I need to use in the new site.  Does anyone know how to enable asp compatibility in Sitefinity 4?  Is there a page that everything inherits from like cmsentrypoint.aspx in 3.7?

    I have received a reply from tech support.  Apparently the ability to set the aspcompat attribute of the page directive is not currently possible in Sitefinity 4.3.  Has anyone found a way around this?  It is simply not possible for us to rewrite all of our classic asp controls.

    I have tried to add a code behind to the pages that we need aspcompatibility.  This included the below code.
    However, as many people have stated before, setting this attribute in a codebehind does nothing for the page.  The only way to set this is on the aspx page in the @Page directive aspcompat=true.  This however is not possible since the aspx page is generated on the fly by sitefinity.  Any ideas on how to get this to work?

    public ClassicASPBasePage : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e) {
            base.OnLoad(e);
            this.AspCompatMode = true;
        }
    }

    Hello Stuart Radlett,

    Sitefinity 4 does not support classic asp controls and there are no plans for supporting such controls in near future. We are sorry for the caused problems.

    Best wishes,
