GuiPlugin - PlugInArea.AdminMenu



Working with Episerver cms, I've created a new GuiPlugIn following coding patterns etc, from existing plugins.

My plugin does not show in the Admin Tools area as expected.

Have tried removing all data from tblPlugIn where assembly name matches  MyClient.Web , but on restart, it picked up other plugin's and not the new one.

Can hit the plugin page in dev , localhost/plugins/repbioupload.aspx to test, but ideally, this need to appear in the menu.

There doesn't seem to be any other configuration that makes existing plugins appear.  

Very strange... any help appreciated.


using EPiServer.PlugIn;
using System;

namespace MyClient.Web.Plugins
DisplayName = "Rep Bio Upload",
Description = "Rep Bio Upload Form",
Area = PlugInArea.AdminMenu,
Url = "~/Plugins/RepBioUpload.aspx"
public partial class RepBioUpload : System.Web.UI.Page
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

Hmm, must be local dev environment issue, when I uploaded my code to staging server, the menu item appeared as expected - and plugin works.

I'll eyeball both config files and see what may be the reason.

Does resetting your view settings make any difference?

Just to update, there were no isssues when deployed to stage / prod , so it's something weird wih local settings.

Ted, can you elaborate, resetting view settings?
