Sitefinity CMS 8.0.5719.0 Version Notes

What's fixed


  • Fixed an issue with the FormMultipleChoice widget that created a response with a value -AddOtherChoiceItemValue- when posting in the backend or when using an AJAX enabled form. (FP)

Users and Profles

  • Deleting a profile field from a used profile, results in YSOD when editing the user.
  • Users which name is GUID cannot be set when NickName is empty (FP)
  • Unable to see recovered users' password when there isn't recovery email set under advanced settings (FP)
  • The "Is a public profile" property ignored when using a UserList widget. To apply a filter, open the widget for Edit > Advanced > ControlDefinition > Views > UserProfilesFrontendMaster and set IsProfilePublic = true for FilterExpression property. (FP)
  • Disabling Forums module causes "Invalid resource message" on EditUser screen (FP)
  • Using Auto-generated fields in UserProfiles widget templates thrown an error when you preview the page (FP)
  • User.IsLoggedIn doesn't display the correct status. There is a public method of SecurityManager, called IsUserOnline(string providerName, User user) that you can use to get whether the user is currently online or not (FP).
  • View Roles in BoxesView doesn't show users count. We applied a fix and now the users count per role gets update. This has been tested with 300 roles each with 500 users (150 000 users in the entire system) (FP)
  • YSOD "Type is enhanced and registered, but not available..." when deleting a custom field from a user custom profile
  • YSOD is thrown when trying to use an existing NickName with Profiles public widget (FP). 
  • Profile public widget - fixed issue with email validation and expose error message instead of refreshing the page with no logging.
