    Hello Gaurav,

    First you need to upgrade your project to Sitefinity 3.7 SP4 following our upgrade instructions , then you should use the migration tool.

    Hi Ivan
    I have Upgraded my Website from Sitefinity 3.5 to Sitefinity 3.7 . I got a issue in pages where i used generic content .
    In generic content when I used Some Link with virtual path in following line

    <a href="/DownloadEvaluationEditions.aspx?software=31" class="nav1">Download</a>

    It is showing following error

    '/DownloadEvaluationEditions.aspx?software=31' is not a valid virtual path


    Though It was working nicely in Sitefinity 3.5 . And it also not allowing to edit the Generic content . I have attach a Screen shot of that error..
    The Thing is that I cant delete the  generic content .
    So please guide me so that I can get rid of it.

    Thanks
    Gaurav

    Hello Gaurav,

    The object moved generally means that there is some http header generated which prevents the Response.Redirect to required url. It could be result of proxy.Object move could be thrown if the host is changed between the requests. So, if context.Request.Url.Host is altered you may get object moved.

    The other error - '/DownloadEvaluationEditions.aspx?software=31' is not a valid virtual path is thrown because the link you entered does not start with tilda

    <a href="/DownloadEvaluationEditions.aspx?software=31" class="nav1">Download</a>

    Hi Ivan
    <a href="/DownloadEvaluationEditions.aspx?software=31" class="nav1">Download</a>

    That same Url was working in Sitefinity 3.5  but same thing is not working because it do not starts with '~' sign

    At least it should allow me to edit the content but when i try to edit it crashes the sitefinity UI
    I have attache the Image in Previous Post.
    At least it Should allow me to edit the Content

    Thanks,
    Gaurav

    Hi Gaurav,

    We changed the link parser in 3.6 and 3.7 editions. You can change the links through the database

    For public controls like GenericContent you have to update [sf_CmsControlProperty] table.
    For backend - modules you have to update -[sf_CmsTextContent]

    Hi Ivan

    Now I am facing another problem After Upgrade to Sitefinity 3.7 from sitefinity 3.5 . Hope I will Get Solution

    Some times when i Click on Some link on my website it is Showing Error

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (ctl00$Content$ctl00$RadGridAntiVirus$ctl00$hdnProdText="... solution.<br><br>Visit Faroni...").

    Description: Request Validation has detected a potentially dangerous client input value, and processing of the request has been aborted. This value may indicate an attempt to compromise the security of your application, such as a cross-site scripting attack. You can disable request validation by setting validateRequest=false in the Page directive or in the configuration section. However, it is strongly recommended that your application explicitly check all inputs in this case.

    Exception Details: System.Web.HttpRequestValidationException: A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (ctl00$Content$ctl00$RadGridAntiVirus$ctl00$hdnProdText="... solution.<br><br>Visit Faroni...").

    Source Error:

    The source code that generated this unhandled exception can only be shown when compiled in debug mode. To enable this, please follow one of the below steps, then request the URL:

    1. Add a "Debug=true" directive at the top of the file that generated the error. Example:

      <%@ Page Language="C#" Debug="true" %>

    or:

    2) Add the following section to the configuration file of your application:

    <configuration>
       <system.web>
           <compilation debug="true"/>
       </system.web>
    </configuration>

    Note that this second technique will cause all files within a given application to be compiled in debug mode. The first technique will cause only that particular file to be compiled in debug mode.

    Important: Running applications in debug mode does incur a memory/performance overhead. You should make sure that an application has debugging disabled before deploying into production scenario.

    Stack Trace:

    [HttpRequestValidationException (0x80004005): A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (ctl00$Content$ctl00$RadGridAntiVirus$ctl00$hdnProdText="... solution.<br><br>Visit Faroni...").]

    Hi Gaurav,

    It looks like the error comes when you click on a link of a RadGrid control. You can try to wrap it in AjaxUpdatePanel which should fix the error. Another option would be disabling request validation from the web.config.
