DNN SolPart error – Easy resolution
Are you stuck with DNN SolPart Error? We can help you fix it!
DNN uses SolPartMenu settings to change the look and feel of the website menu systems.
However, DNN version 8 eliminated the SolPart concept, leading to DNN upgrade errors.
At Bobcares, we often get requests regarding DNN SolPart errors, as a part of our Server Management Services.
Today, let’s see how our Support Engineers fix this for our customers.
Cause of DNN SolPart Error
Before discussing the fix, let’s have a detailed look at the cause of the SolPart error.
Solpart is a Navigation Provider for altering the menu on the DNN website. It uses the web.config file.
As we already saw, the upgraded versions of DNN no longer support SolPart references. Therefore, when upgrading the version to DNN 8, these SolPart references often creates conflict.
Recently, one of our customers approached us with the following error. He was upgrading his site from DNN 7.3.2 to 8.0.0 but got the below error.
How we fix SolPart Error?
It’s now time to see how our Support Engineers checked and fixed the error.
To avoid the SolPart error, we deleted all the references of SolPart from the upgraded version. We did it in 2 steps.
1. Find the references of SolPart in the DNN containers. And, SolPartActions types are generally referenced in DNN Containers. These DNN Containers helps to add style and markup to the modules independently.
Therefore, we accessed the Portals folder, and then we searched for SolPart reference using the below command.
cd Portal findstr /s /i /m solpart *.ascx
This gave us the lists of files having SolPart references.
2. We removed the following two lines from the list of files where we found SolPart reference.
<%@ Register TagPrefix=”dnn” TagName=”ACTIONS” Src=”~/Admin/Containers/SolPartActions.ascx” %> <dnn:ACTIONS runat=”server” id=”dnnACTIONS” />
Later, we checked if there were any custom codes that came along with custom modules. As we found a few more SolPart references in the custom modules, we removed them also.
Thus, we fixed the SolPart Error. And the DNN website started working correctly.
