Ooops! I can't find the page you're looking for

Only thing working correct are outside admin is one page that I've created....

Are those post Unpublished or Deleted?

Jan 10, 2011 at 9:07 PM

All are published... 

Only way I can edit the post are from the dashboard ->>Post and on the button where I can choose between Edit / delete ... 

all the "month categorization" diplays fine... but every place where I can press to read the full post it fail...  

Its like I'm missing a "standard" page..or URL convert are set somewhere.... 


direct link to a post:

http://domainname/post/2011/01/06/post111.aspx  = fails 

edit button link to the same post: 

http://domainname/admin/Posts/Add_entry.aspx?id=100a7f53-d7ba-4477-891f-eb48a2e70a16 = works

Does the RSS/Subscribe feed work?  The URL is typically:


What version of BE are you using?  Are you on IIS6 or IIS7?  .NET 3.5 or .NET 4.0?

Hi BenAmada

Yes the syndication.axd works...

Using BE and are on IIS 6 (I think)

Its like I'm missing a default page/view

Are there any errors in app_data\logger.txt?

This is a wild guess, but could you try manually entering the slug. Also, there various settings related to handlers. You could try to experiment with them.

That's a good suggestion by neuromancer.  There might be details in app_data\logger.txt.

Another thing to try related to this is to turn off custom errors in the web.config file.

<customErrors mode="Off">

If there's an error occurring, turning off custom errors may display an error page with details instead of what you're seeing now.

nothing in the logger.txt

got a copy of the app_data - and going to make a new install later today.......
