    I have a Global.asax that when I modify, changes don't get applied until I build the site in Visual Studio. Is Sitefinity set up to only do precompilation? I would prefer to have dynamic compilation.

    In ASP.NET you can create Global.asax in two ways - with code behind file or without (like script). So it's important what Global.asax file you have, because if it is with a code behind file is normally to be built in order to work.

    However, if you want to have a dynamic Global.asax you should remove the code behind file (Global.asax.cs) and edit Global.asax file to something like this example:

    <%@ Application Language="C#" %>
    <script runat=server>
        void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
