Reviews for this release

7.3x release still has some odd permission issues. For example, in DNN Events, event mods now need to have edit module permission in order to add an event to a calendar, whereas before that was not the case. So long as the control panel is visible on the page, an Event mod can enter an event and not be greeted with just a white box. We use Live Articles and Live Blog; prior to this release, one could add attachments through their interface. Now when I try to add an attachment, I get a message saying that I don't have permission to upload to the site; yet I can upload a picture or document through the HTML editor. I have to be logged in as the host in order to add attachments through Live Blog or Live Articles. This odd permissions issue extends also to mods in Active Forums. Forum mods have to have the control panel ribbon displayed on the page in order to enter the control panel. I did not have any of these odd permission issues prior to upgrading to Version 7.3.

Installs clean over 7.3. Still had to use the forced upgrade path since the upgrade now button isn't clickable. (use: /install/install.aspx?mode=upgrade ). Oliver - we appreciate the fix to the scheduler!

we've had (rare) reports of that issue but to date have not been able to reproduce - if you have a similar instance we'd appreciate it if you could use the F12 tools to check if it's a script error. Also, as the upgrade page posts a request to verify the host username/password could you check in a http proxy such as Fiddler to see if that requests fails for some reason. You can send any results to cathal(at)dnncorp(dot)com - thanks

I had no problems with a clean install. i found that some skins didn't work correctly. Someone posted a fix for that but i couldn't get it right. Some odd additional folders in the protal folder appear. not sure if thats normal or something strange. Due to the skin problems (not loading admin pages) i decided to revert back to the older version.

Upgrade without problems... Small issue in Page Management. When you select a page the plus/min icons disappear.... Tried several instances of DNN731 and all instances have this issue... Please fix this for version 732?
by wbonekamp on Jul 15 at 10:29 AM
Good Release, especially for new installs. Upgrades have one or two issues that have already been identified. Looking forward to 7.3.2

In IE 11.0, cannot add images in page Edit mode. Image browser comes up but directory tree and button-bar icons are all greyed out and non-functional. This also happens when adding/editing a blog module article. Firefox is okay and it works normally. This happened after upgrading from 7.2.2 to 7.3.1.

Seems like you forgot to fix the issue with the slider when adding a module?

Installation went smooth. Some stranger issue found: > Request URl not found for Login.aspx > GetStarted page never going out
by webtech4rindia on Jul 3 at 7:08 AM
Upgraded 2 sites from 7.2.2 with zero issues. Both sites seem to be performing better as well - a welcome upgrade! Only thing I noticed was at the completion of the installations, when I selected "Show Logs" on the install page, it showed there was no Installation Log to display.

I still can't update from my 7.2.1. Still that problem with DNNFriendlyUrl provider: when urlFormat is "humanfriendly" everything is ok, when it's "advanced" I get 500 response with further logs: Url Processing Exception:Exception in Url Rewriting Process Debug Message 1:Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Debug Message 2:(TRUNCATED TO 500 CHARS): Stack Trace: at DotNetNuke.Security.PortalSecurity.IsInRoles(UserInfo objUserInfo, PortalSettings settings, String roles) at DotNetNuke.Security.Permissions.PermissionProvider.HasPagePermission(TabInfo tab, String permissionKey) at DotNetNuke.Common.Globals.ValidateModuleInTab(Int32 tabId, String moduleName) at DotNetNuke.Entities.Urls.TabIndexController.AddStandardPagesToDict(SharedDictionary`2 tabIndex, Dictionary`2 dupCheck, String httpAlias, Int32 portalId, String cultureCode) Exception Type:System.NullReferenceException

So far the upgrade process has not been very smooth. It looks like the web.config is not in sync with the new install (many binding redirects are different, as well as a few other things). Once I cleaned them up, I still ran into issue around getting the upgrade process to run. First it failed updating the DDRMenu (it looks like its an old version that is included), then is hung on the database upgrades. Rolling back for now and I'll check things out at the next dot release.
by ravensorb on Jun 28 at 10:57 PM
are you using an upgrade package (an install package contains a web.config and will overwrite your existing one). If you are using an upgrade package, then web.config updates occur during upgrade and are merged into your existing web.config - if this does not happen it is usually a windows permissions issue (i.e. the file does not have "modify" rights), or web.config is marked as read-only (which most often happens due to it being checked out of source control)

Updated 18 DNN Installations in 80 minutes without any hassle. Perfect!

One concern - "rollback change to exclude portal.css by default" - I completely agree with flipping the default from 3.0 to 3.1, but it looks like the feature was actually completely removed? Can you please put it back? The ability to NOT include portal.css (at the Site level) via a checkbox is very much needed. Or did the checkbox just get moved somewhere less obvious (in 7.3.0 is was above the Stylesheet textarea on Admin / Site Settings, Stylesheet Editor tab).
