Validation of viewstate MAC failed

Turn off event validation! Everything I read on that was telling me it would be a security nightmare to have a public application with page validateRequest=”false” enableEventValidation=”false” viewStateEncryptionMode=”never” in your web config file. After a little bit searching I found http://www.developmentnow.com/articles/machinekey_generator.aspx that generated a machine key and the xml required for my web config file.
