DNN Blog Error: Edit Entry is currently unavailable.

A recent ASP.net update has caused DNN blog to display an error when trying to use the "edit" function.

Error: Edit Entry is currently unavailable.
DNN.Services.Exceptions.ModuleLoadException: The server tag is not well formed. ---> System.Web.HttpParseException: The server tag is not well formed. ---> System.Web.HttpException: The server tag is not well formed. at System.Web.UI.TemplateParser.ProcessError(String message) at  ...

If you are not logged in as an admin, all you get this error message:

An error has occurred.Error: Edit Entry is currently unavailable.

 

How to Fix: 

For full disclosure, this (now) invalid character has been in the code for quite a while, probably since its first public release.

  1. Open DesktopModulesBlogEditEntry.ascx
  2. Go to line 21
  3. Look for the string matching "ResourcêKey " (notice the funky "e")
  4. Replace "ê" with "e"
  5. Save and upload

DNN Blog users should also expect to see this fix in the next release of the Blog module (03.04.00).

 


This error is caused by an invalid characted located in the file called EditEntry.ascx. This character has an accent in it causing the crash.
