I just submitted a support ticket, but in the interest of sharing this with the rest of Sitefinity users (and hopefully getting some responses from people who may have experienced this too), I'll post it here in the forums as well.
So... We are experiencing a problem with the Events View control. Here's what happens:
1. I place an Events View control on a page
2. Edit the settings of Events View
In Step 3 (settings) I modify the formatting of Start Date and End
Date, uncheck to hide some fields, add some field labels, etc. (all
standard things out-of-the-box).
4. I save the edits and publish the page. The page looks fine and all events are displayed correctly. For example:
Event Title 1
Start date: Sep 14, 2008
End date: Sep 15, 2008
I do IISRESET on the server. I visit the page again, and all date
formatting has been RESET. For example, the same event from above, now
Event Title 1
09/14/2008 3:00:00 PM <so, the label is gone, and the date format is reset>
09/15/2008 5:00:00 PM <same here>
<also, link for MORE INFORMATION is shown, even though I specifically chose NOT to display that field>
I go back to edit the page that has the events view on it, I STILL SEE
all of the options as I have previously set them (so, the dates still
show correct labels and date format in the settings). if I just save
things again and re-publish the page, everything is back to normal
again.... But reset IIS again, and things break.
pretty much done with the events module out-of-the-box, without any
customization to it nor any customization to the master or detail
In addition to IISRESET causing the formatting
to get reset, it seems to happen when to application pool gets recycled
automatically, as well.
Anybody else experiencing this?
