    You have a reference to sitecoredemo namespace in your view. And compiler cannot find it. What is your view code? Where that namespace comes from? Is it referenced from the web project?

  • The connection between the projects is throw Sitecore>Project Properties>Sitecore Explorer Connection. In the view I have the reference of Sitecore.Mvc. I have created even a Quick Publish between the two projects.

    Put content of your /Views/TAC/Events/Layouts/Events.cshtml view into your question also content of Web.config file that sits in your Views folder May 21, 2019 at 4:50

The issue happens because you've added the namespace of your project in the Views/web.config file while you haven't created any class yet.

The issue is related to the link field. For suppose if I add the wrong value in type(internal link) with the value of the url as (http://www.google.com). The link field is of type external link but not the internal in content.

  • Yeah, based on the data you have entered it will automatically updated the type of the Link, you can check the raw value of the particular field. Nov 27, 2019 at 9:31
