Hello All,

I'm am using wspbuilder to create a feature that is supposed to add an option to the "Site Actions" menu. The option(Brand Sites) appears in the "Site Action" but when I click on it, I get
The webpage cannot be found  HTTP 404 error


Below is my feature.xml and elements.xml files.

lso, I have a folder called "brandFile" with the siteBranding.aspx in it.

Any guidance would be appreciated.  Thanks.
FEATURE.XML

    <ElementManifest Location="elements.xml"/>
    <ElementFile Location="BrandingFeature.webpart" />
    <ElementFile Location="brandFile/siteBranding.aspx" />
  </ElementManifests>
</Feature>

  </Module>
