Hi

I have added the newsletter widget here http://goo.gl/tSu3o on the right hand sidebar at the bottom.

When you enter an e-mail address the message says you are now unsubscribed and also nothing gets sent to the address you enter.

Hopefully someone can help me out on this or maybe even its a setting.

Could really do with some help on getting the posts out there!

Many Thanks

Alicia

Did you set read/write permissions on your App_Data folder? This can cause this issue to appear in the newsletter widget.

Hi Henkjanp

Not technical I'm afraid, is what you describe in the settings or maybe its something the developer did when uploading the blog to the site.

What do you think?

Many Thanks

Hi Alicia, let your developer read this page: http://blogengine.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Installation and make sure after uploading he set this permissions on the App_Data folder:

Add write permissions for App_Data folder

This is an often forgotten step. If you miss it, you'll notice as soon as you try to make a change. You need to give the application write permissions to the App_Data folder. Again, your hosting provider may have a control panel that allows you to do this. If not, you may need to contact your hosting provider for support.

Setting write permissions could involve up to 3 steps: 1) Using the IIS admin tool or your hosting provider's control panel, set the folder as "Write" capable; 2) If you have direct access to the file system, make sure the account under which the BlogEngine.NET's application pool is running (typically "ASPNET" on XP / 2003 and "Network Service" on Vista / 2008) has write access to the physical folder; 3) After unzipping the web folder, all files have their read-only attribute enabled. Turn that attribute off for the App_Data folder and all files and subfolders
