A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported. The type is not registered as safe.

Hi Folks,

I am getting this error whenever I am trying to add a web part on any sharepoint site.

"A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported. The type is not registered as safe."

Please let me know what could be wrong with my web part.
Thanks.

Your webpart isn't registered as a safe control in the web.config of the web application that you are putting it into:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd587360(v=office.11).aspx

You should have a line in your web.config that resembles this:

<SafeControl
   Assembly="SimpleWebPart, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=def148956c61a16b"
   Namespace="MyWebParts"
   TypeName="*"
   Safe="True"
/>

but then with your assembly and classname and publickeytoken
