Can't delete, comments don't show

Dec 18, 2009 at 4:24 PM

I'm having problems deleting posts and comments. After I try to delete the post or comment, I'm redirected to a page with nonsense text. Also, I try to post a comment but it gets "stuck" posting the comment. I go back to the front page and it eventually says the post has a comment, but they aren't showing.

Side note: I am successful in writing new posts.


Anybody know what's going on? Thank you!

The garbage characters you see after deleting a post or comment are the result of an unhandled error.

If you modify the global.asax file in the root of your blog folder, and add the Application_Error code I posted in this thread on April 23rd (step #2 in that message), you should get a more meaningful error message to get a better idea of what the problem might be.

Thank you! I was having problems with permissions.

So I solved it with giving the Network Service full control on the App_Data folder. I hope this is the correct and safe solution...


Thanks again.
