I get this error running installation wizard, it stops at 54%, can you point me in a direction? Please, thank you ;-) 54% ERROR:Error parsing Website TemplateObject reference not set to an instance of an object. at DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalController.ParseTemplateInternal(Int32 portalId, String templatePath, String templateFile, Int32 administratorId, PortalTemplateModuleAction mergeTabs, Boolean isNewPortal, LocaleCollection& localeCollection) at DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalController.CreatePortalInternal(Int32 portalId, String portalName, UserInfo adminUser, String description, String keyWords, PortalTemplateInfo template, String homeDirectory, String portalAlias, String serverPath, String childPath, Boolean isChildPortal, String& message)

1) All module-settings are 2 times submitted to the database when saving module-settings. Even if they are the same. In 7.1.2 this was 0 times if value were the same. 2) Value of DNN control "CheckEditControl" always returns true. So DDR menu settings IncludeContext and IncludeHidden are now always true and displaying every page in menu.

Happy New Year! I’d like to be a beta tester for DNN 7.5 and 8.0, please. As a seasoned senior Microsoft consultant I am standardizing my team on Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2015. I am very excited the MVC and SPA Modules, Full MVC support and .NET vNext (Dnn neXt).

Unable to upgrade from 07.02.01. I get an error saying that the failed.
by bhurley on Dec 27, 2014 at 6:25 AM
that file is not shipped with that release, in fact it's shipped with DNN 7.1.2. That suggests that your site permissions are incorrect and that after installing/upgrading to 7.1.2 the zip file was unable to be deleted, meaning you have multiple old copies of it (and obviously you cant install a 7.1.2 version on a 7.2.1 site). I recommend you roll back to your backup and then check and make sure that you don't have old, undeleted versions of zip files in the install folder(s) of the site. After that you'll want to check your windows permissions and ensure that you have read, write and modify permissions set.

I must agree with others that the software is some of the best in the world, easy to build modules to make it do even more, design it with responsive skins, and easily add workflow like a world class CMS should do. But the performance is so bad. Slow? Yes slow, Would love to see a fix for this. My last reason for a 3 start rating is because of the size of the update file. 43MB with thousands of files that need to be FTPd to multiple portals? Oh my. Even with lighting speed and a great FTP package this still can take all day. Ow. PS: I really do appreciate all of the people who put the work into this product. Thanks. I wish I was a better coder so I could help.

It's Very Nice Version but Need to more Focus to make Faster in next release.... The most Problem for DNN is only Speed for loading page even you had Powerful dedicated server pure of RAM/CPU/SSD resources only for one website, but it's really slow and need to fix it. I'm sure if you fix this BIG PROBLEM DNN will come on top of CMS around the world.... Because It is the best on other things... Thank you for this Release 7.3.4 again. :) ---------------------------- DNN NEED TO REVIEW ALL SOURCE & STRUCTURE from basic again. Because, I think there is many deep problems inside cause to make very low speed when page loading. We optimize more than 50 websites with different modules & volume of content, but all of them are heavy & sllow. Like your Portal "" it's slow too! I think it's for wrong method & programing to handling skins, container, modules, permissions and database all together on sever side. It is fast when you install new empty one. Just need to install a few modules and uploading data to make 3 time slower. Finally there is problem on RTL languages. There is very big problem on DNN structure. I like DNN, but It's really need to fix and I'm sure you know it.

Willen, Armin, latest version of TurboDNN scripts have been released to provide best database performance for your sites. Download for free from (please checkout readme carefully). Users of 3rd party registration/user profile modules, please be careful as there are changes how countries and regions are stored.

Performance is always important and a key feature for a website. When will Sebastian's Turbo Script finally be part of the core DNN CMS? Are there any problems with the script that I might not know?
by rwack on Nov 18, 2014 at 5:52 PM
We actually added around 50 of Sebastian's changes back in early 7.x releases. Of the others we did not want to accept some as they moved application logic to stored procedures, or made changes we did not want . However the main issue is that we do not have any proof of the benefit i.e. no metrics showing before and after performance benefits. Sebastian submitted these as jira items, many of which we are waiting to review still, but really need proof before we can consider them Note: running any 3rd party script against DNN platform objects is dangerous and effectively means you are running an unsupported fork of DNN

The use of the Telerik controls is the most stabile it been since version 7.0.0.

I am not aware that any of the issues addressed affected my sites, but I was able to update from 7.3.3 without trouble in QA and Production.

I understood that the newtonsoft DLL issue was going to be corrected in this version. I see no change to the undefined menus.
by lcantin on Nov 15, 2014 at 9:53 PM
It was originally scheduled for 7.3.4 but was not able to be done in time so has been moved out to 7.4.0
Reply by cathalconnolly (N/A) on Nov 19, 2014 at 2:54 PM
I have installed 7.3.4 over 7.3.1 on my dev machine and noticed considerable increase in app pool memory consumption up from ca. 170 MB (7.3.1) up to around 250 MB (7.3.4) just over a period of 20 minutes of casual browsing through the site. This is a potential restriction to production site hosted with limited app pool capacity. EDIT after one more day of testing: it looks as if the server restart changed the results: - when in anonymous mode the app pool consumption was 163 MB; - after logging in as a host and checking and editing the site's settings - a rise to 190 MB; - after logging off as the host: 183 MB. CONCLUSION: Never hasten with your judgment and wait for the server/app pool restart. I'm adding one star more to the previous three.

I'm afraid we have to wait for Sebastian's Turbo Script to increase performance.....
by wbonekamp on Nov 13, 2014 at 2:52 PM
Is this version have memory issue in app pool? if it does then i will wait for next version
by AdnanEbrahimi on Nov 14, 2014 at 4:47 AM
no, please see Greg_Greensky's analysis in the comment above - the usage is 163MB-190MB which is consistent with recent releases.
