    Great Job!
    How do I enable Categories for Images & Documents?  This is very important for a project that I am working on.

    Good job with the release on the "updated" release date.

    Hello medicalwebgeek,

    We decided to remove the categorization feature from our Images & Documents module. Now you will probably ask why. This was a tough decision because we had to remove a feature that might be interesting for some of our users but we did it for the sake of clarity and semantics. In this release our libraries actually act as categories because they have the feature of consisting different items. On the other hand Images & Documents module supports tagging for each item which is currently considered to be one of the best ways for navigating through different items.

    In the future we will definitely consider adding categorization to our
    Images & Documents module if this feature is interesting to our clients and if we get decent feedback on how it should be most intuitive to you and your customers.

    We are sorry for the caused inconvenience!

    Sincerely yours,
    Tihomir

    Sitefinity Team,

    I am wondering if you could let me know how to install Telerik.Notifications_3_2_1500_beta on top of the Sitefinity V3.2 official release.


    By the way, it looks like I can't download the community edition after I logged into my client.net.

    Thanks
    Tim

    Hello,

    This post provides the answers to several posted questions, beginning with the earliest posts:

    Sitefinity Team,
    I am wondering if you could let me know how to install Telerik.Notifications_3_2_1500_beta on top of the Sitefinity V3.2 official release.By the way, it looks like I can't download the community edition after I logged into my client.net
    Tim

    Tim,
    You can add the notifications module as you add a regular pluggable module. Please refer to the User Manual -> Working with Modules", section Adding a Module to a Sitefinity Web Site. As for the Community Version - it is already available in your Client.Net


    Sitefinity Team,
    I saw Aspose.Pdf.dll and Aspose.Words.dll files in the bin folder. I am wondering if Sitefinity actually use the these two controls or just for try.
    Tim.

    Tim,
    Sitefinity uses them. They are used for our indexing engine, to index the contents of PDF and Office files. Furthermore, we plan to implement their functionality in some of our next releases, so every developer could use them as well. Note that the Document Library does not support indexing yet, this functionality will be available in SP1.

    Romi,
    It is our omission not to have included this assembly. We have already updated the files, so you can download it again. Sorry for this inconvenience.


    Thanks to all of you for your interest in Sitefinity!

    Sitefinity Team,

    I downloaded the Telerik.Notifications_3_2_1500_beta.zip file in the morning, but I didn't find any Notifications DLL in the zip. Could you please tell me where to download the Notifications DLL and installation instructions?

    Thanks

    I got following error message after apply notification module:

    Could not load file or assembly 'Aspose.Words' or one of its dependencies. The parameter is incorrect



    I think the problem is that Aspose.words.dll didn't register in the windows GAC. I think Sitefinity needs to post Aspose installation package for download so that end user can install and register Aspose.dll in the windows GAC

    Please correct me if I am wrong.
    Thanks

    Sitefinity Team,

    I still got the error message for Notification module as following:

    Could not load file or assembly 'TelerikDynamicWebServices, Version=3.2.1500.4, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=598c47861a2e0477' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.



    I am wondering if you could put TelerikDynamicWebService.dll and related the files on the forum for downloading. It's very important for me for my next coming project.

    Thanks in advance

    I enabled the Notification NewsLetter module in the web.config, but when I am trying to open the Newsletter Beta module, I am getting the error 'The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.'
    What could be the problem?

    I am receiving an error when I update the page type.

    I replaced Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates\Pages\PagePropertiesEdit.ascx and PagePropertiesInsert.ascx with the corresponding files from 3.1 and I am no longer having the issue.

    Any updates to Page Properties (or these .ascx files) that should cause me to want to want the newer versions?

    Hello Tim,

    Sorry for the delayed reply.
    We found a problem with the Telerik.Notifications_3_2_1500_beta.zip. Also, as there were some files missing in the installers we provided on March 4th, we replaced the .exe files on March 6th.

    Here is what you should do now to eliminate the problem with Newsletters:

    1. Apply the patch that is available for download now. Depending on the edition you installed previously, choose either SiteFinity_3_2_standard_patch_1500.zip or SiteFinity_3_2_community_patch_1500.zip.

    2. Download the Telerik.Notifications_3_2_1500_beta.zip.

    3. Extract the files the project root directory.

    4. Make sure the ServiceAssemblies folder is empty. If you have downloaded the old Notifications.zip earlier, you should delete 3889AC4AF542BAC3C62ABB154E78FEA8.dll. It will be created automatically when you start the module.

    4. Open the project web.config file and remove the comments regarding Notifications. Refer to module.config for comparison.

    5. Save the web.config.

    Note that there are problem creating and managing subscriber groups. Also, at the Administration tab, Notifications and Permissions links do not work.

    I am able to update page type without receiving the error now, but I still am receiving it anywhere else in PagePropertiesEdit that would traditionally postbacks (Add URL, link, meta).

    This is the error. (Even though this is the second time I am starting to type it because this editor didn't maintain my state)

    Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed. Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by calls to Response.Write(), response filter, HttpModules, or server trace is enabled. Details: Error parsing near '

    Hello Georgi

    The Client.net hyperlink redirects to the client.net of the telerik website. Although I have a client account there, I don't see this zip file.

    In my client.net environment of the Sitefinity site I don't see this zip file either. Can you tell me where I can find it?

    Hello Sitefinity Team

    I added the telerik.web.ui.dll into the Toolbox of Visual Studio 2008 on a Vista platform.
    When I try to add a Rad control to my page I am getting the error 'The operation could not be completed. Invalid FORMATETC structure'

    It must have something to do with my environment (Vista and/or VS 2008) because when I do the same on a Windows 2003 platform with Visual Studio 2005 (where Sitefinity 3.2 is installed too) I can add the Prometheus RAD controls to my page without any problems.

    Have you any idea what the problem could be? I searched the internet but haven't found a solution yet.

    Regards
    Luc

    Luc, this error does not seem to be directly related to Sitefinity or our controls. Therefore, I suggest you search asp.net forums for similar problems and possible solutions.
    Also, you may take a look at this forum post for possible solutions.

    Tim, the official Newsletters module should be out at the end of the month, together with 3.2 SP1.
