    Hello, whenever I create a new list I get a blank pop-up window and am forced to check "Prevent this page from creating additional dialogs" then it just hangs. If I choose Content > Lists again I see the list I created but selecting it causes the same behavior I mentioned above with creating lists. I can add new items to a list I created but I cannot see or edit these list items as the same issue prevents this. This behavior is occurring on 2 separate installations of Standard Edition version 4.1.

    I don't have my laptop infront of me to load that in...but Gabe just got this EXACT error in Firefox on the webinar going on now.

    So please if he can figure it out and post the resolution that would be awesome (ie...don't let him blow away the project since you have a borked version to test with)

    I have a ticket stating the Lists Module is only in BETA and there are known issues with it??

    Can you confirm?

    If that's the case why is a service pack bumped to June and not a couple weeks from now like the other Telerik products?  I know OA has frequently released quick official updates when there's been many issues.

    If a problem with "A specific version of SQL Express" held up the release of 4.1 how did this "Known Issue" get released?

    I sent them (in a ticket) my entire project and database a couple days ago, have yet to hear back on the results...just re-attached my latest failed attempt last night.

    Frustration level for me right now is off the charts as I have yet to see any even ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of this issue anywhere.  Even after it publicly happened to Gabe, and clearly its not isolated to just me, and it's been four days since 4.1 was released.

    @Steve I feel your pain. 4.1 could possibly be one of the worst releases/upgrades the Sitefinity team has produced. I'm starting to think it would be a safe bet to say more new bugs were introduced than bugs fixed.

    This is why I never understand the rush some people have to get their hands on an internal build to see if something has been fixed. It might be fixed, then you tell your client that things are good to go as soon as they officially release the next update and then bork... 10 new things are broken and you've got to go back to your client and eat your words. 

    Think I'm going to go meditate over the long weekend and hope that Telerik has been crazy busy fixing bugs with a hotfix release next week... Serenity Now!

    @Phill

    I just want some feedback saying my issue has been looked at today.  I heard from Radoslav a couple days ago and he said he would look at it, but I didn't hear anything today, I also updated the ticket with the latest dropbox URL to download, but it looks like it didnt finish syncing before I logged off for the night so no file exists and nobody mentioned to me that it was a bad URL.  So that says nobody even touched it today (or at least updated the files).

    4.1 by and large works fine for me from a NEW install...but I haven't spent the last 3 weeks on this to start over with a new Database

    Hi Steve,

    We are going to check your project and try to replicate the issue. I tried to replicate it locally, but everything was working file. The tracer does not contain errors from the service, so we will look into your project and updated you.

    Kind regards,
    Ivan Dimitrov

    Thanks ivan, the latest version is here marked April 20-2011.zip

    This is a Fiddler of one of the list problem: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3234184/ListItemProblem.zip
    This is a video: http://www.screencast.com/t/29To2CpsgkW
    Which can also be seen here @ 28 minutes: http://tv.telerik.com/watch/sitefinity/whats-new-in-sitefinity-41

    So my video you can see the 4.0 live homepage vs the 4.1 duplicated content\lost placeholders version.  It wouldn't be a HUGE deal to re-create the pages except that there's a ton of document and internal sfref links dotted all around the content widgets.

    I have gotten this too on a brand NEW 4.1 site (not upgraded, just new project creation). 

    In Firebug I see this error:

    /Sitefinity/Services/Lists/ListItemService.svc/tree/?hierarchyMode=true&sortExpression=Ordinal%20ASC&provider=OpenAccessDataProvider
    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 405 (Method Not Allowed)

    After hours of painstakingly recreating my project from scratch I ran into this myself. So it is not a problem with only upgraded projects. I would like to know when we can expect a fix or workaround... this has caused my project (and paycheck) to be delayed several weeks.

    Not sure if this will help everyone, but I was running into the same issue. I was able to create a list, but when clicking on the list name to go and add list items I was getting the same 2 error boxes. Out of desperation I tried using the edit button on the right and saving the list again. After that I was able to add content items and add a new list without any issues. Strange, but it worked.

    Ok. Here is what I have figured out. The error seems to happen when you click on the list name. After some testing on different 4.1 projects this is what has been working.

    1. Create your List
    2. Click Ok on box 1
    3. Check the box on box 2 and then click ok.
    4. Reload the List Page
    5. Click the Add New List item that is under the list name.

    Yes, I have been able to create a list and add items to it but the problems comes when you want to see or edit the list items. On my desktop system I can't get the list module to work in either FF or IE. Yet, on my laptop with the exact same OS and browser versions the list module works fine. If I reboot desktop system then the list module works for awhile but again will stop working after a period of time. Very odd behavior.

    NWTResearch,

    I think you're on to something. I restarted IIS on the server hosting my site, cleared all my browser history, restarted the browser, and could then successfully edit a list without the persistent problem. Note I did not have to reboot my desktop. Based on our experiences, it looks like the problem may be due to something that gets stored in memory, either on the client or the server. When I experience the problem again I'll try the above steps one at a time. Hopefully we can come up with a temporary workaround to the problem and then figure out a step to trigger it so Telerik can recreate and debug it.

    Thanks for the reboot tip,

    Mike

    Hi Mike, You are correct. Sorry for confusing the desktop reboot solving the problem when it is actually the IIS reboot/browser history clearance that did it. Lists working.....for now.

    OK, it looks like the issue is on the client side, not the server side. I experienced and worked around the problem by doing the following:
    - Using Chrome 10, I created a new list with about 20 new list items (titles only). I experienced no problems in Chrome editing the list.
    - I switched to IE 8. Upon logging in to Sitefinity as the same user, I got the standard "Log the other user off and enter" prompt.
    - I then tried editing the list in IE and got the error.
    - I killed IE, restarted it, deleted the browser history (temporary Internet files, cookies, and history), and was then able to edit the list in IE

    Since I did not restart IIS hosting the website, and because deleting the browser history alone worked around the problem, I assume the error is on the client side rather than the server side. Thinking the problem might be related solely to switching browsers, I switched back to Chrome and then back again to IE, but both were able to edit the list.

    I'll continue looking for a way to reliably recreate the problem and narrow what browser history I clear for more concise workaround.

    Mike and NWTResearch,

    I started having the issue with the List Module again. I took what you guys were saying about clearing the browser history. I cleared everything out and it started working fine. 

    I needed to change the title of one of my list and I started getting the same error. This time I only cleared out the cookies and other site data (using Chrome) and it is working just fine now.

    Hopefully this helps narrow down where the issue is.

    Thanks Jeremy,

    The "Delete cookies and other site data" seems to be the the simplest temporary workaround for this problem in Chrome. See attached screen shot.

    Hopefully the Sitefinity team is paying attention to this and can fix the issue once and for all, but at least for now we have found a temporary workaround.
