Parent page hierarchy navigator

Hi Joe, I've put 2.3.6.4 into development, and tried out the new parent page hierarchy navigator. If I pull up an existing page and browse for parent, it shows the full site hierarchy, but if I create a new page from scratch and immediately hit the browse button, it only shows Root as a choice.

If I'm doing something out of order, or missing any styling or other settings that might be affecting this, just let me know.

Thanks,

Jamie

Re: Parent page hierarchy navigator

argh! That looks like a bug. I got too focused on making sure it was not possible to assign the current page or its own children as the parent that I didn't pay close enough attention to the new page scenario. I will have to fix this and put out a patch in the next few days. In the meantime I guess either set a high threshold and continue using the dropdown or create the page then assign the parent.

Best,

Joe

Re: Parent page hierarchy navigator

ok, this is now fixed in the source code repository, it was a tiny change in ParentPageDialog.aspx.cs. Basically we are passing in the pageid so we can filter out the current page and child pages. But with new pages passing in -1 so what happened is it filtered out any pages that have -1 for the parent id (which is all root level pages) so no pages showed up at all. I just had to add the check for -1 to fix it. I'll put out a patch in the next day or so, lets see if any other bug reports come in before I do.

Best,

Joe

Re: Parent page hierarchy navigator

Wow, thanks for getting that fixed so quickly Joe! After a new release, we typically install to development and do some internal testing, then wait 3-4 days to let all the bugs shake out before rebuilding from source and deploying to production (I'm targeting early next week for our production upgrade). Working from the source tree is awesome! cool

Re: Parent page hierarchy navigator

fyi, I've patched the 2.3.6.4 release with the fix for this. For anyone who already downloaded you can download again and replace mojoPortal.Web.dll in the /bin folder with the new version.

Best,

Joe
