    umbraco 7 template cannot be found error

    Hi all,

    I have created a umbraco 7 MVC site with uSitebuilder 2.  I have a primary.cshtml layout page and a homepage which references the primary.

    However, I keep recieving the following error:


    Template 'HomePage' is using 'Primary' as a parent template (defined in MasterPageFile in HomePage.master) but 'Primary' template cannot be found


    Any ideas?

    You may need to create the templates in the Settings area of Umbraco aswell, so that they are registered in the database.

    The problem was solved when I removed the associated view with the parent template. In my case it was my StartPage.cshtml.
