DNN Navigation

DNN Navigation logo

Our CMS development team was working on a dotNetNuke site with a Navigation bar and added it to all pages. I then edited the Navigation bar, pulled off the Display on All Pages check box in the Settings dialog box, and then rechecked it. It would not display on all pages after this. This is apparently a bug in the DNN system and this is the workaround.

Solution

Go to Admin – Recycle Bin and Click “Empty Recycle Bin” button.

Then go back to the Module – Settings and recheck “Display on All Pages”. It should work.

Our ecommerce team discovered that there’s a strange little feature in the Cart Viper shopping cart category listing that caused me about half-an hour worth of frustration. It’s actually documented in the tool itself but it was difficult to fully understand.

In this case I wanted the DNN Menu module to be available to non-authenticated and unverified users. It’s easy to make the module header appear in the sidebar but the Categories list proved more difficult.

Cart Viper

Solution

Within the documentation for the tool it tells you to leave all Role Options for the module blank to have it show up for all users. I didn’t want the Menu List to show up for all users, just select User Roles including Unverified and Non-Authenticated. Thus I checked those two Roles and several others. The Category list showed up when I was logged in as an administrator but once I logged out the categories vanished.

Finally I simply followed directions by unchecking all roles and it worked. Not that big a deal but somewhat frustrating. Apparently there is a bug somewhere in the viewing for Unverified and Non-Authenticated users. Easy to fix in the end.
