Site Admin Issues: I manage several DNN sites. I upgraded them last week. Some of the site have multiple portals. In ALL cases, when selecting the "Manage/Sites" option on the Persona Bar, it briefly flashes "An Error Occurred" and then nothing. You can't see any of the sites to manage/delete them. You can; however, add a new site.

Persona Bar Issues: I have two sites with the exact same skin with the exact same configuration (one for production and one for testing). I can see the persona bar on one, but not the other. Both sites are on different installs. The site that is broken is on a multi-portal installation. All the other sites on that installation can see the persona bar.

Please help.

The Persona Bar Issues have been fixed. I had inadvertently deleted a line in my file relating to Language and User Login. Apparently the Persona Bar requires one or both of those to operate.

I still have the HOST:Site administration issues. I attempted to create a new portal and it errors out (with the same "An Error has Occurred" message). Surely you know this is an issue DNN. This is kind of important!

...and another thing about the persona bar...

Why is the search token required in the skin in order for the Persona Bar to fire? Surely this is a bug....

I'm not sure why I'm not getting any response to what I consider a very serious issue with the persona bar:

I cannot manage sites in a multi-portal installation (or ANY type of installation for that matter). It reports: "An Error has Occurred" and no event logging is created as well.

This is a "Community" forum so it is not staffed by support folks from DNN Corp. And, there is no official support for the Community version of DNN from the Corp. That's always been true.

You can report bugs via the Jira issue tracker.

As for your issues, hopefully there are some people around who may have dealt with these issues and can help. I'm not one of those, having not really jumped into DNN 9 yet. I decided to wait at least for the first update before doing that. And, this is a slow week!

Best wishes!
