Forum Post Error with 2.3.4.1

Just updated to the 2.3.4.1 , SQL 2008, Win2k8R2. The setup process ran fine, but since the upgrade I get the following error message anytime someone tries to post to the forum or replies to a post

2010-03-31 08:30:56,702 ERROR mojoPortal.Web.Global - *.*.*.*-en-US - /Forums/EditPost.aspx?thread=30&forumid=1&mid=3&pageid=3&pagenumber=1

I have tried re-running the setup and even touching the web.config, but nothing has helped.

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for letting me know. I will fix this asap, as an immediate workaround, change your captcha setting to Subkismet in Site Settings instead of ReCaptcha. This is a pesky Re-Captcha issue that I had solved long ago but seems to have re-emerged.

Best,

Joe

Re: Forum Post Error with 2.3.4.1

I've just patched the 2.3.4.1 release to fix this. If you download it again, I think all you need to replaces is mojoPortal.Web.dll, mojoPortal.Features.UI.dll, and mojoPortal.Controls.dll

Thanks,

Joe

Re: Forum Post Error with 2.3.4.1

Copying this files worked like a charm. Thanks for your help Joe.

FYI. It does not appear that the deployment files on the Novell download page have been updated. I download the zip from there about 4PM Eastern and I still got the error message. I then looked at the time stamp on the files and it was from the 30th. I checked CodePlex and saw the deployment files had been uploaded today. So I downloaded those and it fixed the issue I was having.

Thanks for your help Joe.

Re: Forum Post Error with 2.3.4.1

I still have not updated the Novell Forge site, when I tried this morning it seemed to be down, I will try again.

I do prefer if people download from Codeplex because it helps my numbers in the eyes of Microsoft and ranking on Codeplex.

Best,

Joe
