I am building a custom module for DNN version 7.02.01.  I have a simple web handler page and I am trying to set the portalid to a javascript variable in HTML. The module is written in C#.  I have tried these two ways:

 PortalModuleBase pmb = new PortalModuleBase();

int portalid = pmb.PortalId;

and:

DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalSettings ps = (DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalSettings)HttpContext.Current.Items["PortalSettings"];

int portalid = ps.PortalId;

Both methods return the portalid of the Parent portal.  I need the portalId of the current Child Portal.

Please help.  Thank you.

I think your problem is that you don't identify the child portal context - when DNN get's a request it checks to see what portal it is. It does so via checking the page name (or tabid) - if it can't find those in the request it assumes that the request is for the default portal. It does this so it can see if a user is moving between portals so it can invalidate and refresh their security credentials i.e. I might be an admin in "child1" but only a normal user in "child2" and if I am on mysite.com/child1/somepage and then browse to mysite.com/child2/someotherpage, DNN needs to recognise the change of portal and reload the security credentials otherwise the user would become admin in both sites, which would be wrong. Please ensure that your request is being made to a page within the correct childportal.

Cathal,

First of all, your reply in my other thread for getting the portal settings GUID is golden.  Solved my issue.  But now I'm running into this same issue I'm replying to here.

 I MUST have the Child Portal PortalID and NOT the Parent PortalId.   I can't get the correct portal settings context without it.

How does one get the Child Portal Portal ID regardless of the role that is accessing it?  For my purposes it isn't an Admin Issue on one child portal vs. regular user on another.

Thanks!

Mike Durthaler

sorry Mike, i dont quite understand the question, could you give an example of what you're trying to do (e.g. pseudo-code)
