    Umbraco Cloud + How to Build A Site with Umbraco Series

    Hi all,

    I'm following along with Paul Seals great How to build a site with Umbraco series on youtube.

    I have an Umbraco Cloud site set up locally and i'm trying to implement the controller approach that Paul is showing. However i'm getting an error with the RenderAction.

    My code is the same as the in the tutorial, although I think the placement of the folders and the file is causing problems.

    I understand that the Controllers / Models / View should be created with .Core project, but i'm not sure I whats missing to cause the error.

    "No route in the route table matches the supplied values."

    Line 15:   <body>    
    Line 16:    
    Line 17:     @{ Html.RenderAction("RenderHeader","SiteLayoutController"); }  
    Line 18:        
    Line 19:     <div class="cd-main-content">

    Any help would be grateful.

    Hi Martin

    Share please your controller code.

    Did you build .Core project, so all your code is in bin folder of web-site?

    Might be something do with the tutorial being a "Visual Studio WebApplication Project", whereas your Umbraco Cloud instance, is most likely to be a "Visual Studio WebSite Project".

    If it's a "WebSite", then your controller folder should reside in the "App_Code" folder.

    The name of the controller is different.

    Try to remove the "Controller" part from the name "SiteLayoutController":

    @{ Html.RenderAction("RenderHeader","SiteLayoutController"); }


    @{ Html.RenderAction("RenderHeader","SiteLayout"); }

    Please let us know if the RenderAction runs successfully this way.
