I really don't understand why DNN uses Telerik .NET 3.5 dll's with this release. When the whole project runs on either .NET 4 or 4.5?
by jashton on Jan 10, 2013 at 1:03 PM
It is NOT a stable release. A bunch of annoying bugs that makes this release worthless. Still don`t understand why DNN haven`t released hotfixes.

Sorry -- after years of DNN 5 and 6, version 7 did not install well on a new blank installation. The installation kept going to a blank GettingStarted.aspx page, and would not allow using the administrative or host menus. I tried five times too. Unfortunately, the DNN infrastruture has to carry forward people from many legacy versions. I'm going to seek alternatives. :(

Not sure about the behavior on an upgrade, but a new install seems to work very well with the expected bugs for new major release. Very disappointed to not see any new capabilities in terms of social functionality that was introduced in 6.2.

Excellent job, great step forward

A new installation runs flawless. Awesome work!

When upgrading from older versions, be aware that the j-query paths defined in host settings are updated. Also, remove older versions of DDR Menu from your DNN prior to upgrading. It seems that it is loading slower than previous versions, the content editor, control panel actions & etc. .NET 4.0 should be handled more gracefully, maybe prompt to remove all unsupported modules from DNN

The TreeView with Context Menu Style not working anymore, something crashed with Telerik
by henryklh on Dec 6, 2012 at 9:03 AM
Superfast upgrades with no errors, and a marked improvement in website speed once running. New UI is a vast improvement on previous efforts, and plays very well with existing skins. I would prefer some color in the icons, but seem to be in a minority on this point. Those with problems adding modules are advised to check the forums for a fix - it's an easy workaround.

I give 1 star for this release because the 3+ year bug in shared ssl config is still present, I cant believe this feature was released in DNN 4.5 and still NOT fixed (see http://support.dotnetnuke.com/issue/ViewIssue.aspx?ID=17535&PROJID=2). Also the IE9 issue with DotNetNuke.RadEditorProvider (see http://support.dotnetnuke.com/issue/ViewIssue.aspx?ID=22047&PROJID=2) is still unresolved.

I can't add module to the page. I don't know what's wrong.
by joshuabright on Dec 4, 2012 at 6:21 AM
Some good ideas, and as always we encourage the had work of those who have put into this release. Well done... but for those who are thinking of running this version. Forget it! Significant bugs that are show stoppers that no doubt will be fixed fast!
by InteractiveWebs on Dec 3, 2012 at 12:54 PM
'Fixed issue in the Journal that made image thumbnails not clickable' NO YOU DIDN'T!!! This makes the Journal module useless unfortunately.. Everything else looks good, thank you for the great release and all the hard work you put in.
by apluspcct on Dec 2, 2012 at 3:31 PM
You are attempting to add a reference to this module that exists on another site in this group. This module may or may not support sharing across multiple sites - it doesn't explicitly state either way whether it does. etc.. would be nice if it said WHAT module.
by wrinklebrain on Dec 2, 2012 at 10:27 AM
With the edit UI and module drag bugs in Firefox that should have been spotted during testing, I find this version unusable.
by Coops on Dec 1, 2012 at 1:50 PM
@nb1908 You need to know that not all guys know chinese :). you can find some guide on http://www.dotnetnuke.com, or you can contact me, I can give you some resources.

我只用了06.00.01版本的,感觉功能非常强大,但是我找不到更多的汉语资料,所以希望DNN 团队能给点建议。谢谢!

I installed this on a scratch DNN 6.2.5 site. So far so good. I love the new UI and soooo want to upgrade my production site to DNN 7 since I'm constantly changing and adding content to pages. I tested using FF 16.0.2 and the latest Chrome and saw zero problems. I do recommend Chrome for managing DNN sites. Tip: Read upgrade docs if your site is running .NET 2.04!!

Having major problems adding new modules - when adding a module with multiple definitions only the first control is output. It's also annoying when adding/updating module definitions (or modifying settings in general) - the section of the page keeps collapsing every time a change is saved.
by kn3 on Nov 29, 2012 at 2:33 PM
Just updated a DDN5 site to DNN7, website still seems to work but it is very very slow now.
by Sayeed81 on Nov 29, 2012 at 10:14 AM
Installed ok but the new interface is incredibly slow - it is barely usable in FF and IE. New drag and drop for adding modules is unusable - in addition the context menu does not show the correct panes for any skins I have tried so I can only add modules by dragging and dropping them.
by Fruitbat42 on Nov 29, 2012 at 9:22 AM
Install worked great, much better than previous versions! One BIG problem that I noticed right away is the new drag-and-drop feature. This was hyped in the webinar. Works great for adding modules to the page, but does not work at all in IE9/FF16 when draging-and-droping between panes. Will do more testing, but question how much testing was done prior to going GA... KUDOS TO THE AWESOME DNN TEAM!

New lucky number DNN looking great (except small visual issue with radio button list). I have great plans with it. Thanks ;-)
