Default Chapter 7 - 2nd excercise

When trying to follow links on the 2nd excercise, the horizontal menu for the Monochrome theme, my links don't work; including 'Home'. Looking at the HTML, it reads "/Default.aspx" - which should work. Is there some setting in IE I need to change?

I will repost after I try it in Firefox to report if it made a difference. I could just import the project files and get it working, I just wanted to troubleshoot it myself.

Hi there,

Can you define "don't work"? Are they not clickable or do you get an error when you click them? In the latter case, what error do you get and what's the URL in the browser's address bar?

Cheers,

Imar

Smile Thank you - figured it out

On page 246 of the book, the siteMapNodes all have a url that ends in a period. For example:
Code:
<siteMapNode url="~/Reviews/AllByGenre.aspx." title="By Genre" description="All Reviews Grouped by Genre" />
This led to the menu not behaving properly. I removed the ending periods and all is well.

Thank you for taking the time to look at the question.

Hi there,

Yeah, that unfortunately crept in during the review process. It's on the errata list (http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...Cd-ERRATA.html) although it's a bit cryptic ;-)

Cheers,

Imar
