    I'm using the SiteFinity Project Manager to build out a template for a client, and so when I start the site, the port number seems to be random, thus, my Javascript file references added to the site template don't resolve.

    The Javascript Widget, doesn't accept ~/ in the specified javascript url, and I can't use, for example '/JS/include.js' because that gives me the root localhost site of http://localhost:xxxx/ instead of http://localhost:xxxx/SiteName/
    I was a little surprised that it couldn't resolve to site root with the standard .NET notation.

    Hello Chris,

    Thanks for your feedback. We will log this and will improve the widget. 
    You have two options from here:
    1. Move the site to IIS, and run it on fixed port or
    2. Use the following control - http://www.sitefinity.com/40/help/developer-manual/controls-utility-controls-resourcelinks-control.html

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
