4 Easy Steps to Custom Sections in web.config

In a recent project, I used the web.config file to store some configuration settings that could easily be modified without redeploying code. I used the standard appSettings in <configurations><appSettings><add key=”” value=”” /> .  This works great when you have a specific key name and value.
