Warning : Install on Dnn 08.00.00

There is a small bug in this version of Dnn that will stop the menu showing. To solve this is quite easy to do by following theses steps below:

Go to '/Portals/' folder of your Dnn install In this folder you will find a file called 'web.config' Open this file and search for the following 3 lines of html

<host factoryType="System.Web.Mvc.MvcWebRazorHostFactory, System.Web.Mvc"/>

<add namespace="DotNetNuke.Web.Mvc.Helpers"/> <add namespace="Dnn.Modules.DynamicContentViewer.Helpers"/>

Change the lines above to this:

<!--<host factoryType="System.Web.Mvc.MvcWebRazorHostFactory, System.Web.Mvc"/>-->

<!--<add namespace="DotNetNuke.Web.Mvc.Helpers"/>--> <!--<add namespace="Dnn.Modules.DynamicContentViewer.Helpers"/>-->

Save the file and the menu's should display correctly.
