What are the implications of turning off validation to work around the exception issue? Will it affect the CMS functionality negatively in any way?
One workaround I thought of, is to catch the specific exception in the global Application_Error handler of global.asax. It could redirect the user to a friendly error message explaining the issue and telling them to go back and try again.
The exception is somewhat harmless, but will be very scary to CMS users who aren't developers.
What are your thoughts on this?
p.s. Sorry I also posted this reply in another thread in the retired
