        i searched for all of his comments but did not find anything where he addressed this issue.

        on the other hand, there is this message in the developer tools console:
        Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 ()
        /API/PersonaBar/Sites/CreatePortal:1 

        i will try another browser

        ps - different browser doesn't help. it looks like some piece of code is missing or security is blocking access. next to remove all content-security-policy

          clicking the offending url shows this message

          The requested resource does not support http method 'GET'.

          this problem looks like a coding problem where someone didn't annotate the webapi correctly OR incorrect payload going to webapi OR missing data in a configuration setting OR incorrect endpoing called.

            My apologies. Apparently I didn't include the URL! (Hazard of working late at night ...)

            You want to go here: https://github.com/dnnsoftware/Dnn.Platform/pull/4415/files.

            What you need to do is go to DesktopModules/Admin/Portals and edit portal.template.xsd adding the five lines highlighted in the linked URL.
