Before you dig too deep into this, I think the issue just cleared itself.
I am wondering if the problem was not caused by the fact that once the DDRMenu extension is installed the server needs to be restarted? I don't know in fact that there was a restart of my server by my host but I can tell you the following steps were taken
- Installed Module
- Updated skin aspx file
- Verified DDRMenu NavigationControl entry was in web config
- Went to site home page - got error about Object reference issue
- Went to forum after checking install again
- Posted entry and reverted all change in .aspx file so site would work
Now two days later, I again updated the Register line in my .aspx file so I could send it to you as it was. After I sent it, I thought, what the heck, lets just go to the home page for my site and verify the error still occurs. To my surprise, I can see that mousing over the menu shows the page URLs in the status line and there is no object reference error. This can only mean that DDRMenu is working.
So, the only thing I can think is maybe my host restarts the webservers nightly or something that commits the web.config changes to the instance of DNN in memory for my site.
Thanks for your time and effort again. A great product and I promise as soon as my church is able, we will make a donation for your product and support.
Blessings to you.
