I commented out multiple admin section and did not touch the controller.  That broke the application. Would this have made a database entry in the settings and broke the application?  On startup, now I'm getting 

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Hmmm that's very weird. This is just the view engine looking for views. It's a standard ASP.NET MVC thing, so not sure why that's YSOD'ing. Maybe viewName is null.

viewName is not null.   For home/index, the parameters, viewName = "Index"  masterName = "" and usesCache = true.


I'm going to back step through uncomment the code on the views.  The only required field I commented out was the theme accordion.



Update: The issue was theme can not be null in the settings table.  I broke the application when I commented the theme dropdown out in the admin section.  I manually added "Metro" back into the Settings table in the database and now the application is working again.
