    Umbraco 10 New Custom Section and Dashboard Issue

    I'm using Umbraco 10.4.2

    I am attempting to create a new section in the backoffice with a custom dashboard. I am able to create the section just fine. I have given myself permission to see it and it shows up across the top with the other sections. However, I can't get the dashboard to display. I get a 404 error.

    All files are located within /App_Plugins/WebSubscriptions. The dashboard file itself just contains "hello world". Whenever I click on the section, Umbraco displays a red toast with a 404 error. I tried altering the proj file to contains this:

      <ItemGroup>
        <Content Include="App_Plugins\**">
            <CopyToOutputDirectory>Always</CopyToOutputDirectory>
        </Content>
      </ItemGroup>
    

    It had no effect.

    Here is the package.manifest file:

        {
      "sections": [
        {
          "alias": "WebSubscriptions",
          "name": "Web Subscriptions"
        }
      ],
      "dashboards": [
        {
          "alias": "Web Subscriptions",
          "sections": [ "WebSubscriptions" ],
          "view": "/App_Plugins/WebSubscriptions/dashboard.cshtml"
        }
      ]
    }
    

    I continue to get a 404 error. I have tried adding a tilde, removing the first forward slash, nothing changes. It may be worth noting that I had to create the App_Plugins folder. Obviously the manifest file is being picked, as well as the lang file (no brackets). But it doesn't seem to want to pick up the view file. I have tried both html and cshtml. No difference.

    Hi Ross

    First immediate thought, might not be this, but just glancing at tickets while waiting for the day to kick off...

    Should the alias for the dashboard have a space in?

    and if you take the space out, make sure it's a different alias from the section alias...

    regards
