I can't speak for Chris Hammond, but AFAIK he is still supporting his templates. Did you try contacting him directly on his GitHub project?

I think the template Sebastian mentioned cannot be relevant to your problem.

Modules built using Chris Hammond's templates continue to work just fine. Whatever you problem is it will not be fixed by changing the underlying Chris Hammond template.

I think you need a normal debugging process. Does it work with other modules? Standard DNN modules? Third party ones? Are you using a standard skin? If not does it work with the standard default skin? If the site you are testing with is purely for testing then try things with a fresh copy of DNN.

Hi Richard,

Other modules, such as HTML, load without issue.  I'm using the plain vanilla DNN 9.2 installation and the generic skin.  This morning, I uninstalled the extension and reinstalled a fresh build.  The error in Admin logs shows:

AbsoluteURL:/API/PersonaBar/Extensions/GetInstalledPackages

My next step would be a fresh install of DNN but wanted to find out if there are any issues I can easily remedy without having to do so?  Thanks so much for your help and guidance.

So, I've installed a fresh copy of DNN and am still receiving this error when I attempt to add my custom module to a new page.  What is the suggested approach to determine the root cause?

This is still an issue for me.  I think it's because I was implementing IUpgradeable in my FeatureController class.  I've tried commenting out this implementation and removed Upgradeable as a supported feature.  However, when I try to comment out the following lines from my manifest, the module won't even install:

<eventMessage>

            <processorType>DotNetNuke.Entities.Modules.EventMessageProcessor, DotNetNuke</processorType>

            <processorCommand>UpgradeModule</processorCommand>

            <attributes>

              <businessControllerClass>CrossClassifiedCrossClassified.Components.FeatureController</businessControllerClass>

              <desktopModuleID>[DESKTOPMODULEID]</desktopModuleID>

              <upgradeVersionsList>00.00.01,00.00.02</upgradeVersionsList>

            </attributes>

          </eventMessage>

So, if I comment this section out of the manifest, the module won't install.  If I leave it in the manifest, the module installs but does not allow me to place it on a page within my site.  Can anyone weigh in on a suggested remedy?  Much appreciated!!
