Hello everybody!
I have a strange problem. I'm using N2 After I create Root and Start page and try to view Start page in browser I'm getting null reference exception. CurrentItem is null. It's happening in one of template pages I defined (I have 2). Both of my content data container classes are inheriting from N2.ContentItem. If I add pages bellow Start page, those pages are displayed correct with frendly URL-s. Also I would like to know how to 'tell' to N2 CMS witch template page to use as Start page.

Hi, I'm not sure what's going on. The url parser maps /default.aspx to the start page. If you create a custom start page you should be able to configure <web ignoreExistingFiles="false"> to map / to something other than /default.aspx.

When I done that I got: Unrecognized attribute 'ignoreExistingFiles'. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive.

This might not be available in 1.4.3. Can you try 1.4.4 (just released) and see if it helps?

Well, I already used 1.4.0. and it works correctly. There's probably a bug in 1.4.3. Thank you for your help and keep up a good work.

Today I moved it to version 1.4.4. Everything worked fine at first try :-))))).
I have couple questions:
1.) I'm using minimal C# example. Is it enough to put just <scheduler keepAlive="true" interval="10" /> in Web.config of C# minimal example to have this functionality work?
2.) Also I would like to use e-mail error reports. Since Web.config entry looks like this: <errors action="Email" mailTo="" mailFrom="" />, I'm wondering where should I configure SMTP server?

Best regards
