I upgraded my site to 2.3.9.7 a week or two ago, and am now having problems adding and editing blog postings - whenever I try I get redirected to the error page.

Looking in the system log I find the following error when I try to edit a posting:

2013-04-09 21:42:26,749 ERROR 157.55.32.62 - en-GB - /questions-for-201213.aspx - mojoPortal.Web.PageNotFoundHttpModule - Referrer(none)  PageNotFoundHttpModule handled error.

The blog posting/page named in the error does not seem to exist in [dbo].[mp_Blogs] in the database - I presume something has got out of synch somewhere - can any suggest where I should look?

Re: Error adding/editing blog posts

Further investigations (turning on full error reporting shows that it was trying to open a folder called sites/1/Attachments which did not exist - when I created such a folder, editing now works.

I have never seen this folder before, and it does not seem to exist on other sites I have, so I am very puzzled

Re: Error adding/editing blog posts

Glad you were able to solve the error, that folder should have been created automatically. Support for media attachments like mp3 or video files was added to the blog in mojoPortal 2.3.9.3 to support podcasting.

Hope that helps,

Joe
