Documents Module - view/download link errors in a child portal

If I create a child portal 'B' (portal folder id of 2) to portal 'A' (portal folder id of 1) and then add an instance of the documents module to 'B' and then add a document. When I select the document name I get an error indicating that the document can't be found. The path shown is http://A/portals/1/document not the http://A/portals/2/document that is expected. If I select the download link I get taken to http://A/Default.aspx?tabid=22&def=errormessage (no content on the page).

Everything works fine from parent portal. Problem is consistent on Win 2K Server and Win XP Pro for both 2.1.1 and 2.1.2. Worked fine in 2.0.3.
Any help appreciated!

I'm having a similar problem.  I've upgraded from 2.0.4 to 2.1.2 and now my child Portals Documents modules link to Portal 0 for their docs rather than 1, 2, 3 etc.

I'm kinda shocked that we not seeing more replies to this thread.  I guess most web site are under a single parent domain.

Is anyone else have child domains? Have you updated you site to 2.1.2? Are you experiencing the same documents module problem?

Guess most sites must be a single domain or they use something else for documents. I'm running 2.1.2.

I hope there is a fix also, as we have resorted to recreating child portals .. this is not a good thing or productive use of time. We have over 20 child intranet portals to recreate.... bummer

Take a look at our 'free' DocumentPaths module.  It can be found at:
It was specifically designed for an intranet environment and doesn't require you to upload documents to your web server.

Error while creating a child portal from a template with the blog module
Hello, I'm using DotNetNuke 3.2 and Blog module 3.1.20 from DotNetNuke projet. I created a child portal which contains the blog module. Then, I created a template from this portal. This template will be used to create others portal of the same type. When I try to create a new portal with this template, I have an error "duplicate key" in PortalController.vb I looked the code, and I think the problem comes from the blob module which has several definitions (View_Blog, Blog_List, New_Blog, search_Blog, Blog_archive).

2.1.2 Documents module download error?
Hello. I'm working with a new install of DNN 2.1.2 on a W2K server running IIS5. At this portal,, there is a document for downloading. When I click on the file name, a new browser window opens, presumably to view the document, I get a Page Not Found error. Clicking on Download returns a portal page with "error" in the status bar, but no information in the page. Has anyone seen this problem or does anyone know what I can check to get it fixed?

Document (download) Module looking in wrong portal for files
I am currently using DNN 1.0.7. I have had a problem with the Documents Module when I try to download files on child portals. The File Mgr correctly stores uploaded files in the proper child portal directory. But the Doc Module appears to be looking in the parent portal for these files when user clicks to download them, and bombs because it can't find them there. I traced this through and it looks like the LinkClick page is incorrectly reading the portal setting for the parent portal (even though the container control for the link that was clicked to forward to the LinkClick page reads ...

If i try to create a child portal within a child portal using the standard dnn portal creator the portal seems to be created correctly except for the fact that the directory with default.ascx is created in the root of the dnn site not as a subdirectory of the child folder.

File manager and links/document modules do not agree on document root
When a file is uploaded with the file manager, it ends up in the correct directory based on what child portal is used (there are several different child portals).  Each child directory has something along the lines of /portals/1/{file} or /portals/2/{file} which is correct.  However, when these files are linked to using either a links module or a documents module, every child portal results in the link pointing to /portals/0/{file}, which returns a 404 when it is followed.  I can find the file by selecting the "file" radial option and then looking in the drop down box ...

3.0.12 BUG: Child Portals Seeing Other Portal Documents
I have installed a clean version of 3.0.12 (win 2003 server) and installation was a snap!  I did however find an issue that I am able to recreate: Child Portal 1 uploads a file while at the same time Child Portal 2 uploads a file (Note: both portals have to be uploading at the same time).  After the files are uploaded, child portal 1 now has both files and child portal 2 also has both files. If each child portal uploads by themselves, all is fine.  I discovered this bug while giving a session on DNN 3.0.12 to a group of 20 people (each with their own child portal).&nbs...

Link to child modules
Anyone know a good way to link to child modules from within other child modules, without mentioning the servername (for when I want to move it from development to prod. server)?

Linking to another module is not easy because modules don't have an anchor in a standard skin (you could make a container which accomplishes this though)... in the links module you can select "pages" as linktype, and then li...
