This is fun - Edit Screen unusable and displaying {{lbl.ControlName}} instead of controls. :)

What the hey!?

All the controls on the edit post page are coming through as {{lbl.ControlName}}?! WTF? what in Sam Hill could be going on to make it do that?

Check out the screen shot:

Well I think I've figured it out.

AND I think it was the same thing that was wrong on the ALL admin pages blank issue.

These pages did NOT have jQuery lib included on the page.

By simple adding the line:
<script src="/Scripts/jquery-2.1.1.min.js"></script>

At the top of the page (above the <title> tag even, because it has a jQuery token in it too) and voila.

So this brings up a completely separate set of thought for me.
  1. What am I missing, why does my build not have these includes?
  2. How has this worked FOR ANYONE?
  3. How was it missed during the construction of these pages?
