Visual Studio 2017 Community - Creating Website RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1580299748 posted

    Hello All,

    When I create a website in Visual Studio 2017 Community (File > Create Website) two folders are created for the Solution.

    Both folders have the same name, but the second folder is followed by a (2).

    Example:  If I create a Solution Called "Cat" the following folders are created:  Cat and Cat(2).

    The first folder contains the development files (.cshtml, etc) and the second folder contains the .sln file and a "packages" folder.

    My website is in C#, and I am using the Razor View Engine.


    1.  Is there any way to have all the files create in a single folder.

    2.  I am using GitHub (I am very new to GitHub), and it appears I can only put one folder per solution under source control.  This poses a problem as each of my Solutions has two folders.

    Any guidance appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance...
