DotNetNuke 7.3 Hosting with :: Set Cache in DNN application/ site

clock Desember 9, 2014 07:44 by author Ben

How to set Cache in DNN application/ site

Today I will show you how to set cache in DNN application/site. It is very important to set cache timing for your applications. In DNN application/ site you can set cache in host setting page. To do that you need to login with the application/ site with host login and go to “Host Settings” page. Hit the “Advance Settings” tree and then click on “Performance Settings” link. Then you can find a dropdown where all the cache types are listed, name as below,

  • No Caching: 0
  • Light Caching: 1
  • Moderate Caching: 3
  • Heavy Caching: 6

I will mention later on about the number associated with the cache name, its importance  and where you need to choose a cache type, later in this tip.
This is the screenshot of the “Performance Settings” panel.

Below is the code I have picked from hostsetting.aspx file (admin\host\hostsettings.ascx).. To set the cache time of your site you need to set the value with the cache name which will render in the host settings page under performance settings panel.

<asp:dropdownlist runat="server" Width="150">
<asp:listitem resourcekey="NoCaching" value="0">No Caching</asp:listitem>
<asp:listitem resourcekey="LightCaching" value="1">Light Caching</asp:listitem>
<asp:listitem resourcekey="ModerateCaching" value="3">Moderate aching</asp:listitem>
<asp:listitem resourcekey="HeavyCaching" value="6">Heavy Caching</asp:listitem>

The value in dropdown ranges from 0 to 6. The code above takes the value set in the dropdown and multiplies it by 20 to determine the cache duration

DotNetNuke 7.3 Hosting - :: How To Fixing PortalSettings issue on multilingual Websites in DNN 7.3.2

How To Fixing PortalSettings issue on multilingual Websites in DNN 7.3.2

Today I will share about How to fixing issue on multilingual website in DNN 7.3.2.
DNN 7.3.2 enhanced the stored procedure for saving Site Settings to add multilanguage support, unfortunately it missed to include proper handling of language specific settings within the business layer and some other aspects. As effect, DNN 7.3.2 fails to load site settings for multilingual sites and renders an error message.
I created a full solution to add localization support for website settings, which is scheduled to be included with DNN 7.4.0, meanwhile you may run the script below from Host > SQL, in order to fix this issue.


This fix is also included in TurboDNN 0.9.3 ff. - the solution to improve database performance of DNN, which might be downloaded for free from here. (Please take the time to read instructions enclosed.)

-- ensure, last modified is not Null (should not exist)
UPDATE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}PortalSettings]
 SET   LastModifiedOnDate = '2000-01-01'
 WHERE LastModifiedOnDate is Null
IF OBJECT_ID(N'{databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}GetPortalSetting]', N'P') IS NOT NULL
    DROP PROCEDURE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}GetPortalSetting]
CREATE PROCEDURE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}GetPortalSetting]
    @PortalID    Int,     -- Not Null
    @SettingName nVarChar(50), -- Not Null
    @CultureCode nVarChar(50) -- not Null
 CASE WHEN Lower(SettingValue) Like 'fileid=%'
 THEN {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}FilePath](SettingValue)
 ELSE SettingValue
 END   AS SettingValue,
 FROM  {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}PortalSettings]
 WHERE PortalID    = @PortalID
   AND SettingName = @SettingName
 ORDER BY LastModifiedOnDate DESC
IF OBJECT_ID(N'{databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}GetPortalSettings]', N'P') IS NOT NULL
    DROP PROCEDURE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}GetPortalSettings]
CREATE PROCEDURE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}GetPortalSettings]
    @PortalId    Int,            -- not Null!
    @CultureCode nVarChar(20)    -- not Null!
 CASE WHEN Lower(SettingValue) Like 'fileid=%'
 THEN {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}FilePath](SettingValue)
 ELSE SettingValue
 END   AS SettingValue,
 FROM  {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}PortalSettings] P
 JOIN  (SELECT PortalID, SettingName SN, Max(LastModifiedOnDate) MD
        FROM {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}PortalSettings]
 WHERE PortalID = @PortalId
 GROUP BY PortalID, SettingName) S
   ON P.PortalID = S.PortalID AND P.SettingName = S.SN AND P.LastModifiedOnDate = S.MD;

UPDATE: this fix has been included with DNN 7.3.4, you shouldn't need it, if you upgraded to 7.3.4 and don't apply it to DNN 7.4.0 or later.

DotNetNuke 7.3 Hosting With :: DNN 7.3 Issue with Url Master

clock Desember 2, 2014 07:12 by author Mark

DNN 7.3 has been released and contains lots of changes for performance and stability, bug fixes and some new features.
I was first alerted to an issue with Url Master and DNN 7.3, who found that the API cleanup in 7.3 had removed an old DNN API that Url Master was leveraging, which meant that the site would stop working after the 7.3 Upgrade.   The error you get if you upgrade DNN without first upgrading Url Master to 2.8.2 is this:

500 Internal Server Error
The requested Url does not return any valid content.
Change this message by configuring a specific 404 Error Page or Url for this website

This is the default URL Master error output (unless you have debug mode enabled) which intentionally hides the actual exception for security reasons.  If you open the event log, you’ll find something like this:

Exception: Method not found: 'DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalAliasCollection DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalAliasController.GetPortalAliases()

The solution is that you need the latest version of the Url Master module, version 2.8.2, which uses a newer method to get the portal alias data.
Get the Url Master Module 2.8.2 Download

If you haven't upgraded to DNN 7.3 already, you must upgrade to 2.8.2 before upgrading.

Just download the 2.8.2 install package, and upgrade via the Host->Extensions page.  You do not need to update your licence – this version is available to *all* existing Url Master customers.

If you have already upgraded and have found that your site is dead with this error, then you will need to manually patch the files.  Here are the steps:

  • Download the Url Master install package
  • Extract the zip file locally on your computer to a folder, so you can see the files inside the zip
  • Within the extracted zip file, you will see 4  files.
  • Copy these 4 files into the \bin directory of your site that needs to be upgraded.  Use FTP or copy/paste or any other method to get it into the \bin directory.
  • Once they are copied into the bin directory, try the site again.  It should start and run normally.
  • Once your site is running again, install the (compressed) file as normal through the Host->Extensions page.  This won't change the versions installed, but it will bring your extensions catalog up to date.

I appreciate if people spread these instructions to those who are running Url Master and are intending to upgrade to 7.3 as a preventative measure.

DotNetNuke 7.3 Hosting with :: How to Resolve the Registered Script Control Error in DotNetNuke 7

clock November 28, 2014 05:14 by author Mark

Registered Script Control Error in DotNetNuke 7

If you’ve made the transition from DotNetNuke 6 to DotNetNuke 7 you’ve probably discovered that the AJAX Toolkit controls don’t play nice with DotNetNuke any more.  Fortunately the Telerik AJAX controls have been bundled with DotNetNuke for version 7.  I’ve discovered that converting to the Telerik controls has been beneficial and worth the upgrade.
Still, it can be a pain getting the code right.  One particular error that I ran into today was the Registered Script Control error.  It looks something like this:

"Script control ‘{controlname}’ is not a registered script control. Script controls must be registered using RegisterScriptControl() before calling RegisterScriptDescriptors().  Parameter name: scriptControl"

The error results from “stacked” AJAX controls.  Consider the following HTML

<%@ Register TagPrefix=”dnnui” Namespace=”DotNetNuke.Web.UI.WebControls” Assembly=”DotNetNuke.Web” %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix=”DNN” Namespace=”DotNetNuke.UI.WebControls” Assembly=”DotNetNuke.WebControls” %>
   <DNN:DNNTabStrip ID=”tabsProject” runat=”server” TabRenderMode=”All” Visible=”true”>
     <DNN:DNNTab runat=”server” Label-Text=”Properties” ID=”tabGeneral”>
       <dnnui:DnnAjaxPanel runat=”server” ID=”dapMain”>
         <asp:Label runat=”server” ID=”lblInfo”></asp:Label>
     <DNN:DNNTab runat=”server” Label-Text=”Properties” ID=”tabSecond”>
       <dnnui:DnnAjaxPanel runat=”server” ID=”dapSecond”>
         <asp:Label runat=”server” ID=”lblMessage”></asp:Label>

Let’s say that the second tab (tabSecond) should only appear under certain conditions; a record was created, a particular user is logged, whatever the condition is doesn’t matter, just that the tab should appear at certain times and not appear at other times.
In the code behind the condition block might look like this:

if (condition) then
tabSecond.Visible = False
end if

But this results in the Registered Script Control error.  Modify the condition block this way:

if (condition) then
dapSecond.EnableAJAX = False
tabSecond.Visible = False
end if

This should resolve the error

What was the issue?  I’m glad you asked.
The issue causing the error is that AJAX controls are registered with the AJAX script manager and cannot be unregistered, or moved.  Hiding an AJAX control is equivalent to moving it from the script.  In order to circumvent that we’re disabling AJAX on the control before it has a chance to be rendered and registered with the script manager.
