Umbraco Visual Studio Build Controller Error

Posted on 07-May-2013

Having built my Visual Studio Project from the examples


Added my own HomeController and ran the project I got the following error.

Error The type or namespace name 'RenderModel' could not be found

Need to add Using Umbraco.Web.Models;  directive to the controller.


using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Web;

using System.Web.Mvc;

using Umbraco.Web.Models;


namespace UMB_MVC1.Controllers


    public class HomeController : Umbraco.Web.Mvc.RenderMvcController


        public override ActionResult Index(RenderModel model)


            //Do some stuff here, then return the base method

            return base.Index(model);
