screen shot of errorsHello All,

Lets start by saying I'm very new to this.  Attempting to build a site in visual web developer 2010 express.  I downloaded a template to help me get started.  I made a site.master which seems to work OK for now.. I think.   In the root directory there is a Account folder, which is auto set to user has to be logged into see.  In this account folder I made a page named Login.aspx using the master site.  But when I click view in brower I get a debugger..

It looks like all of the errors have to do with javascript includes.

If Account is your root directory and you are opening Login.aspx from there then it must have a directory inside of it called js which contains your javascript include files: cufon-yui.js, jquery-1.3.2.min.js, myradpro.font.js, and flash_detect.v1.7.js.

If it's not arranged like that then that would explain all of those errors.

the Root directory has the Folder js.
Since this new page is in the folder Account, how do I tell it to look in the root directory for folder js?

For each of your javascript includes sources, do this:


That's a dot dot slash to tell the browser to go up one level to the root, then look for the js folder.

This may also work:

Any place in the markup where you are including an external file like here, line 7:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

I see code in the site.master... but if I change that area, then the default page gives me those same errors

the markup for account/login.aspx has only this.

so all that code is in the master... and I cant change the master correct?
So how do I put the info on this page to point to the right around

sorry for all the beginner questions..

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/site.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Members.aspx.cs" Inherits="Account_Members" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="head" Runat="Server">
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">
        Welcome to the Members Only Page!!!!</h1>

Is this line in your site.master or on the default page?

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

It should work either way. The site.master is in the same directory as Default.aspx and Login.aspx, correct?

If not, correct this map:

js (folder)
Account (folder)

I'm assuming you mean the code that came with the template. The answer is if it's wrong for your situation then you will need to change it to make it work. You could leave it alone and move your js folder so it's inside the Account folder (if I am visualizing your folder structure properly).
