Re: BIG problem in 2.3.8.1 in extensionless page mode

I cannot produce it on my local machine nor on my server but if some environments need that then we know what to tell people if they have any trouble and the documentation for extensionless urls mentions it and comments in Web.config say it "might" be needed for extensionless urls.

Best,

Joe

Wooo! Thank you!

This has been driving me crazy for the last two months.  I had the exact same problem.  Resolved now thanks to that fix.

Re: BIG problem in 2.3.8.1 in extensionless page mode

This is an interesting problem. We ran into it as well now that we're updating from 2.3.7.5 to 2.3.8.5.

I tried to repro it on the demo.mojoportal.com site but was unable to do so. I believe this is due to the fact that you're using ssl on that site?

I can repro it on our development server:

Widows Server 2008 Standard / IIS 7 / .NET 4 / Integrated Pipeline

If you use extensionless urls and create a page and set it to only be viewable by authenticated users and then try to access the page using that friendly extensionless url you will get an error in Firefox that says:

"The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
cookies."

If you change <modules> to <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"> in web.config the problem goes away.

We're going to be setting up SSL in the next couple of days so I'll check to see what (if any) difference that makes and post back here what I find.

Re: BIG problem in 2.3.8.1 in extensionless page mode

I can now confirm this affects sites hosted on Arvixe. I've just upgraded three sites to 2.3.8.5 and all are affected - "sign in" not working etc as described above.

To me this suggest that the default web.config shipped with upgrades should have 

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">

by default.

I will change that back to the default for the next release.

Re: BIG problem in 2.3.8.1 in extensionless page mode

hi Joe we are using 2.3.8.5 and as mentioned above the problem of page redirect got solved with <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">, however, when i have folders in document library those folders are not clickable.

If i remove the above line then they are clickable again but secure pages dont work.

please help

 

regards,

Hiren

Re: BIG problem in 2.3.8.1 in extensionless page mode

what is "document library"?

Can you post an url where I can see this problem?
