Reviews for this release

Major breaking change in DNN 7.4: Loss of extensionless URLs. Sites still running 7.3 on same host can go to pages without .ASPX extension. In 7.4, going to page without the .aspx gives "Not Found" error. Removing ASPX extension with advanced URL management in web.config adds dashes to URLs (rather than removing spaces like old functionality). This breaks all links to the site. So, the choice is: break all links that contain spaces in page names, or break some links that did not contain .aspx extension.

Are we going to see an update to resolve some of the more glaring issues? There are quite a few nice things, but there a number of glaring items that got broken that are supposed to be fixed "in the next version" - Duplicate URL error when creating portals (yes you can put in a trailing / as a work around) - Export portal function is exporting the old format, but the portal import function does not recognize the old format. There are a number of other issues too... none are show stoppers but the sum total lead to a fairly fustraiting experience.

I see a problem in this version. if you set a hyperlink to a local address in your module, dnn platform blocks it. can anyone help me about this?

I encounter problems in the (1)menu options and I can't setup my (2)custom modules on a page. This all worked fine in my DNN 07.01.01 (385) version. Ad 1: I created the top-level menu options, but when I create the sub-menu's below a top menu option, this new menu option wil not show in the portal,on a different computer, but it DOES show on the computer from which I created the menu option. Ad 2: Installing my custom modules. I can install my module thru the extention wizzard, but I can't place them on a page. When I open the page in the pages maintenance, I can see the module, but I can't edit the module's options....

could there be some module package manifest changes possibly related to azure? I installed this module package on my local dnn 7.4.0 hosting environment and it works fine installing the same package on DNN 7.3.4 hosted on azure also works fine installing the package on DNN 7.4.0 on azure fails. the module package was created on dnn 7.3.4 installing the DNN feedback module on DNN 740 azure also fails (not a real exception, extension is just not installed/visible)

Have run upgrade on two test servers. In both cases all account log on names (INCLUDING SUPER USERS) were changed from existing to the email address associated with said accounts. Is this by DESIGN?
by gnossosp on Feb 24, 2015 at 2:56 PM
no, the only email related change I can think of is - i suggest you check you dont have "Use Email Address as Username" enabled.

This update does not work with my Award theme. I cannot edit any of the modules and get errors on all pages. I tested this in my dev environment and rolled back to 7.3.4. I have not put this in my production site.
by huttonjd on Feb 16, 2015 at 4:38 PM
please log this as a bug to (we will need the theme so we can check it, as sometimes these issues are due to skins/themes using direct SQL rather than the API - direct SQL is not supported)

On sites not using Ifinity URL Master it works fine, however sites using iFinityURL Master break - still working on a solution...

not sure what has happened but upgraded with no problems, have done many times before. However this version doesn't seem to like the Tidy skin, well I think thats the issue. For some reason it keeps reseting back to the original skin supplied with DNN. Also quite a few settings were not carried across on the upgrade, smtp server details gone, country and region not carried across, module settings such as display module title were all reverted back to displaying, and this bloomin smpt password replicating itself eveytime you open site setting in admin still happening. Glad I made a backup first but am going to see if I can fix the issues before doing a rollback to previous version

Thank you. I think It's really good version in these months... but Where is Persian Localization, I never seen Iran Flag when I install it. Also After Installing When I Add Persian Language, there was no RTL Codes for CSS, JQuery and Date format...! Can you explain about this new feature: "- Added localization support for Persian"
by arminrahimian on Feb 6, 2015 at 10:03 AM
You can read more about the support for Persian at

base.PortalSettings.ActiveTab.SkinPath is null !
by chuanrou on Feb 5, 2015 at 3:31 AM
Can you please raise this on's forums, or else log it to -we know that activetab.skinpath must be usually populated or no screen would have a skin, so there is something particular about your setup that causes this.

For the first time on my case it looks like it broke something on my site (Dev site, not prod): As I'm still using _old_ Dnn forum, tag system that it is using does not work anymore...
by juvander on Feb 4, 2015 at 5:10 PM
Can you please raise this on's forums, or else log it to -it may not be a platform issue, but rather the 3rd party module was doing something it shouldnt (e.g. direct database access rather than using the API)
