DNN v 8 Cannot edit pages

The following error is thrown when attempting to edit pages:

InnerMessage:Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

When upgrading, the workflow for publishing is not set to direct, and upgrading to 8 in this configuration causes this error.




Make sure your workflow is set to direct before upgrading to DNN version 8.  To do this follow these steps:

  1. Click Edit Settings for the problematic HTML module prior to upgrade
  2. Click the "HTML Module Settings" tab
  3. Verify that the Workflow row's drop-down box is set to Direct Publish.
