​I am trying to add some code I found on the web in my .ascx file to display a link to the Root Parent from any child or grandchild page. I am using DNN 9.1.1, 
<a href="<%= ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[0]).FullUrl %>"><%= ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[0]).TabName %></a>

But I am getting some weird issues. With the code added, while in the edit mode, it makes a class="DNNAjaxPanel" div disappear. this div is used to help when you drag a module into a Content Panel. It is the div just above this div class="DNNEmptyPane dnnSortable dnnModuleManager ui-sortable"

Use the Inspect Element feature of your browser and you will see what I mean.

I this a bug with DNN 9.1.1 or can I not use the code in my ascx file?

Thanks,
Craig

I will try to add a screen shot with the div class="DnnAjaxPanel" that is there BEFORE I use the code.

When I ADD the code to my skin ascx file it makes the div class="DnnAjaxPanel" disappear. Then when I add a module to that Content Pane it makes all the modules go to that one Pane no matter what other content pane they are currently in.

Is this a bug with DNN 9.1.1 or can I not use the code in my skin ascx file?

please note that any DIV elements marked as " runat = server " are processed by DNN prior to issuing the page.

Here is what I have at the top of my Skin ascx file:
<%@ Control language="C#" AutoEventWireup="false" Explicit="True" Inherits="DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Skin" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="SEARCH" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Search.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="LOGO" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Logo.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="USER" Src="~/Admin/Skins/User.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="LOGIN" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Login.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="BREADCRUMB" Src="~/Admin/Skins/BreadCrumb.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="COPYRIGHT" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Copyright.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="TEXT" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Text.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="JQUERY" Src="~/Admin/Skins/jQuery.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="META" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Meta.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="MENU" Src="~/DesktopModules/DDRMenu/Menu.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" Namespace="DotNetNuke.Web.Client.ClientResourceManagement" Assembly="DotNetNuke.Web.Client" %>

Then I have this down farther in my Skin ascx file:




Then in my include dept-submenunav.ascx file I have:


The Code is showing the Root Level Parent correctly on the page visually, but when I am in the DNN Admin mode, the code is causing issues. When I try to add a new module to a Content Pane it makes all the modules go to that one Content Pane no matter what other content pane they are currently in.

The code is causing issues because it makes the div class="DNNAjaxPanel" disappear.

PLEASE TEST by adding the code below to a C# skin ascx file. Then login to DNN admin and try to add a few modules in different content panes and see what happens.
<%= ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[0]).TabName %>

Then, use the Inspect Element feature of your browser and you will see that the div class="DNNAjaxPanel" has disappeared. If you Inspect Element of a Skin ascx page that doesn't have the code and you will see the div class="DNNAjaxPanel" is there.

Note: the div class="DNNAjaxPanel" is the div just above the div class="DNNEmptyPane dnnSortable dnnModuleManager ui-sortable"

Is this a issue or bug with DNN 9.1.1?

Thanks,
Craig

Some of the above code didn't post correctly. I am reposting with the missing code:

Here is what I have at the top of my Skin ascx file:
<%@ Control language="C#" AutoEventWireup="false" Explicit="True" Inherits="DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Skin" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="SEARCH" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Search.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="LOGO" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Logo.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="USER" Src="~/Admin/Skins/User.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="LOGIN" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Login.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="BREADCRUMB" Src="~/Admin/Skins/BreadCrumb.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="COPYRIGHT" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Copyright.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="TEXT" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Text.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="JQUERY" Src="~/Admin/Skins/jQuery.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="META" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Meta.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="MENU" Src="~/DesktopModules/DDRMenu/Menu.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" Namespace="DotNetNuke.Web.Client.ClientResourceManagement" Assembly="DotNetNuke.Web.Client" %>

Then I have this down farther in my Skin ascx file:
 <!-- Start : SubMenu -->
<!--#include file = "includes/dept/dept-submenunav.ascx" -->
<!--// End : SubMenu -->

Then in my include dept-submenunav.ascx file I have:
<nav class="wssubmenu clearfix">
           <ul class="wssubmenu-list">
              <li class="wsli-submenu">
                   <div class="submenuheaderwrap">
                        <div class="submenuheader">
                           <ul>
                               <li><a href="<%= ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[0]).FullUrl %>"><%= ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[0]).TabName %></a></li>
                            </ul>
                        </div>
                    </div>
                   <div class="submenu-wrap clearfix">
                       <div class="submenu_full">
                           <div class="second-level-list">
                                <!-- ul submenu items -->
                                <dnn:MENU runat="server" menustyle="navs/sub-menu" NodeSelector="+0,0,2"/>
                               <!--// end ul submenu items -->
                            </div>
                        </div>
                   </div><!-- end submenu-div-->
                </li><!-- end li Parent-->
           </ul>
       </nav>

The Code is showing the Root Level Parent correctly on the page visually, but when I am in the DNN Admin mode, the code is causing issues. When I try to add a new module to a Content Pane it makes all the modules go to that one Content Pane no matter what other content pane they are currently in. 

The code is causing issues because it makes the div class="DNNAjaxPanel" disappear.

PLEASE TEST by adding the code below to a C# skin ascx file. Then login to DNN admin and try to add a few modules in different content panes and see what happens.
<a href="<%= ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[0]).FullUrl %>"><%= ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[0]).TabName %></a>

Then, use the Inspect Element feature of your browser and you will see that the div class="DNNAjaxPanel" has disappeared. If you Inspect Element of a Skin ascx page that doesn't have the code and you will see the div class="DNNAjaxPanel" is there.
