Light fixture just 2 wires, The box had 2 white, 2 black and 1 red and a ground. Put the red and blacks together and the whites together now although the lights will light when the bulbs screwed in but the switch won't turn them off.

Having the same problem. Switch worked with old light. With breaker on, whites together and blacks together and grounded switch doesnt turn on or off. Light just stays on.

When you took it apart and put it back together you got the wiring goofed up. It's as simple as that. Nothing mysterious about it

Try removing the switchbox altogether, and leaving the wires disconnected but safely separated. Then turn the power on. If the lightbulb comes on with the wires completely separated, then that is not the correct line to the fixture, and is why the light is always staying on no matter what you do. If it is the correct line, then you must be wiring incorrectly to the switch. Sometimes dual switches have little metal tabs that link the parallel poles on one side, and you have to break them off to isolate a pole. Perhaps this is the case? maybe send a picture of the backside of the switch so we can take a look.
