    The type or namespace name 'Home' could not be found

    I just installed a fresh Umbraco with the Clean starter kit and I get this in the error list. It's at line 4 in mainNavigation.cshtml.

    var homePage = Model.AncestorOrSelf<Home>();

    Despite these errors the site compiles and runs so it's only the editor that can't find it. The compiler is fine.

    Anyone got a solution to this?

    Hi Mats,

    It seems your ModelBuilder has not generated the Model. So, it is not able to get Home class.

    Under Settings Section -> Model Builder Tab will show Model Builder is enabled and where Model files have been created.

    Please can you check and confirm.

    Yes, Models Builder is enabled and running Pure Live. The files are there in App_Data/Models

    I found on this page that if you use Models Builder you can use @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoViewPage<HomePage> but that doesn't work for me. I get the red "wiggly line" under HomePage on that line. The type or namespace could not be found.

    Could you give me some code that you know should work so I can do more tests?

    Ok I found the solution:

    If you want Visual Studio to know about your models, they do need to exist in a proper DLL so the correct solution is indeed to go for value="Dll" and generate the DLL.

    I think that would be one of the first lines in the tutorial :D

    Strange. I've similar problem on a fresh and clean Umbraco 8.1.4 installation with Umbraco Starter kit, Bulma Starter kit and another one. Do it possible that they don't test on Umbraco 8.1.4?
