Function is not member of Class - vb

In an website, i created (for the first time) a class with two functions.  i call the shared functions  in a couple of the webpage code behind items.  I placed the class in the App_Code folder and all runs well in the Visual Studio environment.  However, when I move to the website, and run the page i get an error that the function (FixQuote) is not a member of the class (common.vb)

I don't know what the problem is that it works locally but not on the web.

See attached for code and error.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Interesing, why does it complain about a Common (upper-case letter), while your code is all lower-case..

btw, such functions are better writen as extension methods for String.
vb is case insensitive, So, I think it matters if it is common or Common.

What I think is missing is the NEW keyword.

You will need to create  a NEW instance of the class.

Something like:

Dim cm As New common()

Then instead of using common.FixQuote(), you use cm.FixQuote(...)
"Common " is a reserved namespace. Rename your class to, say, "MyCommon"
