Not sure why, but a page with some markup code embeded into it results in the a url that looks like this.

/_layouts/15/start.aspx#/SitePages/orgininalName ?

and for whatever reason does not bind and render some knockout.


You can get rid of /_layouts/15/start.aspx in the URL by going to Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Manager Site Features -> Deactivate Minimal Download Strategy feature

However this is a new framework in SharePoint 2013, which increases performance of SharePoint site..

  • this fixed my issue, but other stuff was going on too, not only url changing, but page was not binding and now it is.. i'm not sure why it fixed it and why that page tho. – Hell.Bent Jul 10 '14 at 23:52
