Description alex 2016-04-21 03:34:20 UTC
When calling Url.Action(string, string) to generate a url within an MVC view or controller, instead of returning a regular url, it returns a WebApi url.

When using Url.Action("Index", "Home") within a view or the controller, I should produce it to produce "mySite.com/Home/Index", but instead it is producing "mySite.com/api?action=Index&controller=Home", which is clearly incorrect.

The same is happening with the Html.ActionLink helper.

If I use @Html.ActionLink("Home", "Index", "Home") it should be generating

<a href="/Home/Index">Home</a>

but is instead producing

<a href="/api?action=Index&amp;controller=Home">Home</a>

This is happening regardless of where the helpers are used - Razor markup, javascript function, or C# code.
