    Home Page down after uninstall and removal of all files from SEO Checker package

    Hi folks,

    I have an issue I need some help with please.

    I had installed the SEO Checker Package not realising it's only for commercial use so I uninstalled it which caused the whole site to break down. After removing all the SEO Checker package files all landing pages are back up but the home page is still down when using the domain URL.

    It shows the following:

    Unable to cast object of type 'Umbraco.Web.PublishedContentModels.ContentPage' to type 'Umbraco.Web.PublishedContentModels.Home'.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'Umbraco.Web.PublishedContentModels.ContentPage' to type 'Umbraco.Web.PublishedContentModels.Home'.

    Source Error:

    Source Error

    Source File: C:\WebOnlyServer\kunterbunteschaos_de\web\Views\Master.cshtml Line: 6

    Stack Trace:

    I am not a developer but building the website for my wife as a hobby, so I am lost when it comes to the stack trace and to finding the issue.

    I haven't changed anything on the code of any template. Just removed the package files using FTP.

    Can somebody shed some light and guide me the way to solve this so that the home page comes back up?

    One more thing to mention is that the home page works fine when adding /home to the domain URL

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Rob

    Can you show the first lines of Master.cshtml? Also, can you rebuild your models builder if it's in DLL mode?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    @inherits UmbracoTemplatePage
    

    @{ Layout = null;

    // Get basic design settings from the homepage
    var home = (Home)Model.Content.Site();
    var colorTheme = Umbraco.GetPreValueAsString(home.ColorTheme);
    var font = Umbraco.GetPreValueAsString(home.Font);
    

    } Models Builder is running in PureLive mode

    Are you using version 7?

    Hi Alex,

    Yes Umbraco 7 as mentioned in the initial post ;)

    My issue is that I am not a developer and I don't have much experience with Umbraco or Razor so it's sometimes a bit too tricky for me to figure out what is going wrong.

    Did you try to re build the models builder?

    Hi Matt,

    You mean reload the models?

    Yes, I tried that 2 or 3 times so far. Doesn't change anything.

    What is odd to me is that the main URL doesn't work but when I go to the landing page /home it works fine.

    Rob, maybe you see different pages on /hone and main URL?

    Hi Alex,

    It's the same page and content as the main URL is basically the home page

    Do you have some internal redirects in the project or something like that?

    In any case, you can maybe just do not use strongly typed models. So get values like that:

    var home = Model.Content.Site();
    var colorTheme = Umbraco.GetPreValueAsString(home.GetPropertyValue<int>("colorTheme"));
    var font = Umbraco.GetPreValueAsString(home.GetPropertyValue<int>("font"));

    I'm still learning Umbraco so I'm just going to throw some ideas out :)

    Have you tried to republish the site?

    Have you checked the logs in App_Data - Logs

    Hi Rob,

    Think SEOChecker is still in your model and it fails because of that. Sorry to hear you needed to uninstall. Sometimes the Umbracolog comes with a more detailed error description.

    Best,

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    I wasn't aware that it is a commercial package. I run the website for my wife more as a hobby so no need to pay for a license.

    Could you let me know where your package normally stores any kind of files?

    I was pretty sure I removed all files from the server. But you might be right and I missed a few?

    All in the /bin folder I assume those are gone?

    No files in the /bin folder which contain SEOChecker in the name.

    But in the back-end, I can still see the button for the dashboard below my forms button?

    That is because it ist still in applications.config also in trees.config file but that doesn't do anything.
