    I am unable to create a new site. dnn complains about element 'settings' has invalid child sitemapcachedays. i can't find it in web.config.

    The element 'settings' has invalid child element 'sitemapcachedays'

    i am using dnn 9.8.1

    How do i correct?

        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/dnnsof...orm/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.

                Good afternoon Joe,

                I would like to know those four lines. The pull is no longer available and I'm curious if my portal.template.xsd is missing those five lines since I also have the same issue with creating a new site. Get a server error:

                jquery.js?cdv=299:2 
                        
                        
                       POST https://www.example.com/A...r/Sites/CreatePortal 500 (Internal Server Error)

                Moderator Note:  I changed the domain name to example.com since this is a universally known test/example URL.  - Will Strohl ;)

                    The issue was I didn't have the boilerplate templates (Blank Website.template and Default Website.template).

                    I knew I could figure it out!!!!
