First off, thank you for a great web part.
Second, I have an interesting issue...
I have a MOSS 2007 single server web farm with a SQL Server 2005 backend server.
I have created a Web Application and Site Collection and 2 Sub-Sites using a Host Header with port 80 (http://test) using the Default zone to be
used inside the AD Domain using Windows Auth
I have extended the Web Application using a Host Header with port 80 (https://extranet.test.com
) using the Extranet zone to be used for external partners using FBA (SQL provder)
I also have extended the Web Application using a Host Header with port 80 (http://www.test.com
) using the Internet zone to be used for public viewing using FBA (different SQL provder) but allowing for Anonymous
I have configured SharePoint AAM and have tested extensively. All sites are fully functional.
I then install the WhatsNew Web Part using the setup.exe included in the SmartTools.WhatsNewSetupV1_1.zip file.
When I add the web part to one of the sub-sites, it works perfectly in the Default zone (http://test
I then switch to the the Extranet zone (https://extranet.test.com
) still works.
But then switch to the the Internet zone (http://www.test.com
) and I receive the following error:
"The "WhatsNewWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator."
Any idea why this would happen in the Internet zone (public) only?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated
