    Briefly, I'm using the Chris Hammond Template. In the edit view, I can't get the ID of the <dnn:UrlControl> to register correctly. I keep getting the error. 

    Get run through

    Settings for my solution. 

    Under solution properties, my output folder is set to ..\web\local.dnn.com\bin\

    Along with all my references point to the bin folder in my DNN site C:\web\local.dnn.com\bin\

    In Edit HTML

    <%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="UrlControl" Src="~/controls/UrlControl.ascx" %>

    <dnn:UrlControl ID="firstLinkEditorDM" CssClass="form-label push-right" runat="server" ShowFiles="true" ShowNewWindow="false" ShowUrls="true" ShowLog="false" ShowTrack="false" ShowUpLoad="false" />

    <asp:TextBox ID="firstLinkTextEditorDM" CssClass="form-control d-block" runat="server" />

    Code Behind in my First statement my id always shows a red underline with the error "The name "firstLinkEditorDM" does not exist in the current context."

    Same with the <asp:TextBox>  ID firstLinkTextEditorDM

    I've checked my refrences and not sure why I'm getting the error

                            firstLinkTextEditorDM.Text = Settings["_firstLinkTextDM"].ToString();

                        if (Settings.Contains("_firstUrlControlDM "))

                            firstLinkEditorDM.Url = Settings["_firstUrlControlDM "].ToString();



                catch (Exception exc) //Module failed to load
