BVN 404 handler



I've added the BVN handler to an EpiServer 7.5 project via Nuget.  When I try to view the gadget in the Dashboard, it fails to load.  Looking at the logs I get the following:

2014-10-13 10:10:02,571 [40] ERROR EPiServer.Global: 1.2.5 Unhandled exception in ASP.NET

System.Web.HttpCompileException (0x80004005): d:\DevRoot2013\zzzzz\modules\BVNetwork.FileNotFound.RedirectGadget\Views\Redirect\Index.ascx(4): error CS1061: 'object' does not contain a definition for 'IsSuggestions' and no extension method 'IsSuggestions' accepting a first argument of type 'object' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

I've check and I am referencing to the assembly. Any suggestions on how to get the BVN gadget to work?

Check your modulesbin folder. There should be both BVNetwork.FileNotFound.RedirectGadget.dll and BVNetwork.EPi404.dll

Hey Danie

I assume this might be an MVC project? If so then the following walkthrough by Jon Jones might help:

It includes a link to some work done Mark Everard thats needed if you want to use it in an MVC project.

Hi guys,

thanks for your suggestions.  David, it is a MVC project.  I've went through walkthrough and also copied over the dlls to the modulesin folder but still get the error.

Maybe not the solution for this error but you might need to change the web.config for the handler to support your version av MVC as well:

Have a  look at my blogpost for this issue:

I got the same error pointing to IsSuggestions. I think it has to do with the version of mvc that that is configured in /Modules/BVNetwork.FileNotFound.RedirectGadget/Views/Web.config. I removed the following and got it working.

<pages validateRequest="false" pageParserFilterType="System.Web.Mvc.ViewTypeParserFilter, System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35, processorArchitecture=MSIL" pageBaseType="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage, System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35, processorArchitecture=MSIL" userControlBaseType="System.Web.Mvc.ViewUserControl, System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35, processorArchitecture=MSIL">
<add assembly="System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35, processorArchitecture=MSIL" namespace="System.Web.Mvc" tagPrefix="mvc" />

We're cleaning this up, and will post a new version of the module to the feed in a few days.
