Default 7.1.1 installation,

  • add the feedback form
  • edit desktopmodules/feedback/app_localresources/feedback.ascx.resx

 cut out:
  <data name="valMessageLength.Error" xml:space="preserve">
    <value>Message must be no more than {0} characters</value>
  </data>

 and the module crits out:

Error: Feedback is currently unavailable. DotNetNuke.Services.Exceptions.ModuleLoadException: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: format ---> System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: format at System.String.Format(String format, Object arg0) at DotNetNuke.Modules.Feedback.Feedback.Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e) --- End of inner exception stack trace --- 

This means that if you:

  • add a language1 to the portal
  • set it as default language
  • set the fallback to another language2 non-EnglishUS
  • disable EnglishUS

The module errors if you don't have a <data name="valMessageLength.Error"...> for that language1.

Also, shouldn't the localization fallback twice from language1 -> language2 -> system default en-US?

Hi Dennis,

I wouldn't expect you to completely remove the element from the resx, rather just blank out the value. However, I'm interested as to what you are trying to achieve, if you just want no error to display I would set the max message length to something large.

In terms of language fallback, I'm not an expert on this but I think you should see in the Admin\Language dialogue that English (US) is the system default, i.e. the ultimate fallback. But if you delete from feedback.ascx.resx you are in effect deleting from the System Default, so you have removed the fallback for that element.

Cheers
Roger

Hi,

I was trying to simplify explaining the problem but I guess I made it more confusing :)

Let me rephrase it:

  • Default 7.1.1 installation
  • deploy language pack (nl-NL)
  • add a language1 (eg. nl-BE) and set fallback language2 (nl-NL)
  • set language1 (nl-BE) as portal default language
  • disable en-US
  • add the Feedback module to a page

And the above error occurs.

OK, I'll test. I'd expect it to fallback to system default though :-(
