    Not sure if others experience the same, though would expect they would, but I had to remove the XML comment from the top of the ManageAddons.aspx page before the page would compile correctly

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    Thanks a lot Martin - I've fixed the aspx pages included in the download.

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    Getting an error when I try to download

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    Works fine now - Great Addon!

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    When I access /forums/ , I get this error:

    can't find this url:  /themes/hawaii/ACCustom/forums-grouplist.aspx

    In SiteUrls_override.config,

       <Override xpath="/SiteUrls/transformers" mode="add">

           <add key="##acThemeDir##" value="/themes/{0}/ACCustom/{1}-" />

       </Override>

       <Override xpath="/SiteUrls/locations/location[@name='forums']/url[@name='forumshome']" mode="change" name="physicalPath" value="##acThemeDir##" />

    In SiteUrls.config (2008.5),

    <url name="forumshome"  path="" pattern="default.aspx" physicalPath="##themeDir##" vanity="{2}" page="grouplist.aspx" indexable="firstpageonly" />

    so, forumshome is rewritten to /themes/hawaii/ACCustom/forums-grouplist.aspx

    but there is only one file in /themes/hawaii/ACCustom/forums-filteredthreadlistbyforum.aspx

    I'm kind of lost here .....

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    Sorry about that Marty101, I accidently included an override for the Classic Forum Homepage modification ( alexcrome.co.uk/.../23.aspx )

    To resolve this, open up siteurls_override.config and remove

    <Override xpath="/SiteUrls/locations/location[@name='forums']/url[@name='forumshome']" mode="change" name="physicalPath" value="##acThemeDir##" />

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    Great!  Problem solved.  Thank you for the add-on.

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    Has it been tested with SP2?

  • re: AlexCrome.CS 2008.5

    It should work fine with SP2.
