using the # in a product name eg. "Chevron Pocke #1" breaks the cart when adding the item to the cart by causing a loop.

<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="4.5" encoderType="System.Web.Security.AntiXss.AntiXssEncoder" maxRequestLength="1024000" targetFramework="4.5"/>


<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="4.5" encoderType="System.Web.Security.AntiXss.AntiXssEncoder" relaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping="true" maxRequestLength="1024000" targetFramework="4.5"/>

In Product.aspx.cs change:




Please let us know if that helps.

I applied the above changes as instructed

Now, upon clicking the Add to Cart button, the user is taken to the Main Page, and nothing is added to the cart.

I suggest using the Online Ordering System web application that you can find in the microsoft visual studio ultimate edition. This template has the recommended code for a successful online shopping business. You can customise this application therefore you can add anything you like in the product's name and it will automatically update your products list.
