    On WebMatrix 3, I select 'new' and then 'Template Gallery' It throws this error. Any body knows how to fix this?

    WebMatrix support ended almost 2 years ago - certain features may no longer work

    Thanks Chris. I've just started learning programming so want to know what other tools similar to webmatrix I can use? Visual studio code is the one I found. Any other recommendations?

    VS Code is the tool we recommend beyond WebMatrix, so you are already headed in the right direction :-)

    Thanks
