Users not wanting to use WGS84? Inconceivable!

Inconceivable!

So you’ve downloaded the JavaScript Sample Viewer from ESRI and want to use it with your own services? Well make sure those basemap services are WGS84 because they won’t show up otherwise. You aren’t losing your mind when you see nothing in the viewer, just republish them as WGS84.

It would probably be a good idea for ESRI to update their docs to reflect this.

Update: Jithen, unlike me, wasn’t happy about having to use WGS84 and he has figured out a way to get it to work.
