Hello!

We have recently upgraded DNN core from 7.2.0 to 7.4.0 due issues with caching nad page load speed.

Now we are facing a problem with "Site Template Import" function. Site templates were created on 7.2.0 version before update.

We are getting the following error when trying to import site template:

Error message: (Error parsing Website TemplateObject reference not set to an instance of an object. at DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalController.ParseTemplateInternal(Int32 portalId, String templatePath, String templateFile, Int32 administratorId, PortalTemplateModuleAction mergeTabs, Boolean isNewPortal, LocaleCollection& localeCollection) at DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalController.CreatePortalInternal(Int32 portalId, String portalName, UserInfo adminUser, String description, String keyWords, PortalTemplateInfo template, String homeDirectory, String portalAlias, String serverPath, String childPath, Boolean isChildPortal, String& message)

It works fine with default site templates (Blank website english, Default website english).

Is there any known solution to this error. We've read this article:

http://www.hostedappliance.net/Resources/dnn-ce-740-site-template-import-bug-132725

All suggestions are welcome. Thank you for your help.

Nace

export/import usually only works for same version of DNN.

Sebastian, thank you very much for the prompt reply. If i understand you correctly, the way to solve this problem is to re-create site templates on DNN 7.4? Will this solve our problem?
