Function is not member of Class - asp.net vb

In an asp.net 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.

"Common " is a reserved namespace. Rename your class to, say, "MyCommon"

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(...)
