DotNetNuke 6 running in .Net 4.0 Server Error in '/' Application Version=3.5.0.0 Version=4.0.0.0

We had a requirement today to run a DotNetNuke Website in .Net 4.0 as some code we are using as part of the Microsoft CRM 2011 SDK require .Net 4.0. Problem is that with many of the DotNetNuke websites, they have some references that will cause this error when you flip your website worker process to 4.0. in IIS. This will give you an error that looks like this:   Generates an error: Server Error in ‘/’ Application. Compilation Error Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately. Compiler Error Message: CS1703: An assembly with the same identity ‘System.Web.Extensions, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35’ has already been imported.

DotNetNuke Forum Module 05.00.02 The missing link!

DotNetNuke 05.06.03 Pain If you look at the project downloads for dotnetnuke, you will notice that the forums module has the latest version as: 05.00.01 And if you click the link from within this page: http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Resources/Downloads/Projects-Downloads.aspx 05.00.01 is exactly what you get. All sounds neat and tidy… right? Not really, because if you install the latest version of DotNetNuke 05.06.03 (an important security release) you will kill your forums. Dead as dead. And if you check around for an update of the forum module, you will not find one either in your Module Definitions, or in the DotNetNuke website. But keep looking to codeplex and you find this: 05.00.02 and what is strange, it is released before the DNN 05.06.03 update, like significantly before it… like 1 month. This Forum Update is NEEDED if you want the forum module to work on DNN 05.06.03 http://dnnforum.codeplex.com/releases/view/67840 Release Notes The same module… Read More »DotNetNuke Forum Module 05.00.02 The missing link!

Problem With DNN Blog Module 04.01.00 – 01

We found an issue with what is the current release version of DotNetNuke Blog module 04.01.00 or 04.01.01. First up, we don’t know what the version number should actually be, as the compiled version on the download is 04.01.00 but the source code is referenced as 04.01.01. We presume there is some difference, but who knows what it is. Anyway The Problem The problem is that any forms on a page that run the blog module, will not allow form data to be validated. By validated, we are talking about ensuring a number is entered in a number field and text in a name filed etc. The cause is the blog module is using an old ASP.Net 1.0 validation function. While it should be using ASP.NET 2.0 with the updated validation behaviours as found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0ke7bxeh.aspx With this mistake, if you use Page.Validate on ASP.NET 2.0, page validation groups are… Read More »Problem With DNN Blog Module 04.01.00 – 01

DotNetNuke–Automatic Logout on Child Sites

It is a long running issue with modules, site and generally is caused by a user logging into a DotNetNuke website that then calls on a page (usually on a dotnetnuke child) website that references a separate .aspx web page. Most often this is caused by the use of some java script that references external .aspx files in the script. While in an ideal world this would not cause a logout issue for DNN users, especially admin users. It does and in our most recent experience with this was an updated website that used the cute soft “cute editor”. This editor was working on dotnetnuke 4.9.5 sites, but due to it’s configuration and changes to the DotNetNuke 5x standards. No child portal would support it’s out of the box configuration after upgrading to dnn 5.6.0. The fix was to throw it away and use the Telerik RAD editor. Not a… Read More »DotNetNuke–Automatic Logout on Child Sites

DotNetNuke 5.6.0 Bug in Google Analytics Module No Hits

The Problem We found that after updating to DNN 5.6.0 that the hits on Google Analytics dropped to 0 Page Views. We looked at the reason behind the problem with 0 hits being reported. What we found was that the code that Google states we should use on the page (and was working fine in DNN 5.5.1) is now not valid in 5.6.0. The tracking code for us looks like this:   <script type=”text/javascript”> var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-1111111-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })(); </script> When we looked at the rendered source code on the DNN 5.6.0 website, we found that the code was different in the line: _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘”UA-1111111-1”‘]); Note the “” marks around the ID Number. So this was… Read More »DotNetNuke 5.6.0 Bug in Google Analytics Module No Hits

Problem with Outlook Sync Task ‘SharePoint’ reported error 0x80040102 Outlook cannot connect to the SharePoint List. We experienced some errors with our DNN website recently. The errors were and interesting one and a combination of a few things. Actually took some work to understand.

DotNetNuke DNN An Error Has Occurred When Attempting To Save The File Forum Mdoule

When trying to add a file attachment to the DotNetNuke forum module, we received an error that looked like this. An Error Has Occurred When Attempting To Save The File C:\webroot\site\site.com\wwwroot\Portals\0\Forums\Attachments\imge.jpg. Please Contact Your Hosting Provider To Ensure The Appropriate Security Settings Have Been Enabled On The Server. We stuffed around for a longer than normal time looking to fix this. We played with permissions on the website host server and folders, as in most of the forum posts about this error we found, they were all blindly looking at that as the problem. Solution Check the folder exists – Look in the folder structure to see if the /Forums/Attachments/ folder is actually there. Create it if is is not – In the website File Manager (ie under the Admin / File Manager DNN menu, create the Attachments folder. ensuring that you set permissions in that file manager to allow… Read More »DotNetNuke DNN An Error Has Occurred When Attempting To Save The File Forum Mdoule
