If you have started working with Umbraco v9 and done your first Azure deployment to one of your testing environments, there is a possibility that you might see the following "Boot Failed" error. Error: Checking the logs In order to understand the problem, you should check the Umbarco log file.  The default location for this file is umbraco/Logs and this file contains the Machine name, along with the date information.

How to use JQuery Ajax Methods for Async ASP.NET MVC Action Methods

Making repeatedly calls to async methods can be a nightmare. In this case, it makes sense to use 2 ajax methods, instead of one. Here is a simple solution to overcome this problem. See that  ajaxcalls   is emptied after the success response for the first ajax call and then the second ajax method is used to make one single call to the async action method. Hope it helps. View: @section Scripts{     < script type ="text/javascript">         var smartDebitObject = new Object();         smartDebitObject.MembershipNumber = $( "#MembershipNumber" ).val();         smartDebitObject.ProfileId = $( "#ProfileId" ).val();         smartDebitObject.FirstName = $( "#FirstName" ).val();         smartDebitObject.LastName = $( "#LastName" ).val();         smartDebitObject.AddressLine1 = $( "#AddressLine1" ).val();         smartDebitObject.Postcode = $( "#Postcode" ).val();         smartDebitObject

How to fix Umbraco CMS Build Error NU1104: Unable to find project '..\Umbraco-CMS\tools\Umbraco.Core\Umbraco.Core.csproj'.

Yesterday during an online meeting , I was talking about how to contribute to Umbraco CMS . As part of this talk, in order to set up my local Umbraco CMS project ,  I cloned the latest Umbraco.CMS code to my local machine, but when I built it I saw the following error: Error NU1104 Unable to find project ' D : \git \repos \Umbraco -CMS \tools \Umbraco .Core \Umbraco .Core .csproj ' . Check that the project reference is valid and that the project file exists . Umbraco .JsonSchema D : \git \repos \Umbraco -CMS \tools \Umbraco .JsonSchema \Umbraco .JsonSchema .csproj I was surprised to see this error as I did the exact same thing a couple of days ago and saw no problems.  After trying a few things, I checked the Umbraco.JsonSchema project's project references and realised that Umbraco.Core project reference was broken.  After removing Umbraco.Core from the Umbraco.JsonSchema and adding it again fixed the problem and I could then do my local database setup as normal.
