  • Hi Doc,

    I would suggest to open up a support ticket for this. In case you do so please provide us with the exact steps to reproduce. I would also suggest to prepare a backup of the project and database in case we need to debug on our end.

  • Was there a fix for this? I have encountered the same problem in Sitefinity 7.2.5310.0. Thanks
  • Resetting the NodeType to Group is what I figured out as a solution as well. Thanks for confirming that this is the workaround for my version of Sitefinity.
  • Hello Nate,

    The issue is related to that bug which is already fixed in later version than your:
    http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/153/Feedback/Details/126988-reverting-a-page-to-a-group-page-and-then-back-to-a-normal-page-causes-an-error

    In order to fix this you can run the following code in an .aspx page on back-up project in advance:
    var pman = PageManager.GetManager();
     
    var nodes = pman.GetPageNodes().Where(p => p.RootNodeId == SiteInitializer.FrontendRootNodeId && p.NodeType == Telerik.Sitefinity.Pages.Model.NodeType.Standard);
     
      foreach (var node in nodes)
      
        var pagedata = pman.GetPageDataList().Where(d => d.NavigationNodeId == node.Id);
        if (pagedata.Count() == 0)
        
          node.NodeType = Telerik.Sitefinity.Pages.Model.NodeType.Group;
        
      
    pman.SaveChanges();

    I hope this helps.
