Telerik Editor / Surt to edit - picking up custom styles from site look and feel

I have noticed that In a WCM site (15.2.5) we are working with, when a user launches the editor - the styles that are defined to control the look and feel of the site are picked up instead of the default imis styles. This happens quite often.

Does anyone have any experience of this? And if so any tips on how to prevent it.

It also happens from the website when you configure an iPart through STE.

Office 365

We have recently upgraded to Microsoft 365 hosted email (from our own Exchange server).

We cannot get the iMIS Public "contact us" or registration email to work.  Below is what the contents of our Web.Config files are.   With other applications, we have to specify what the login authentication is such as basic or login.

Does anyone have experience with this.

Public directory IQA on WCM site

Public IQA on WCM Site

A client would like to have a member directory IQA on their WCM site open to enable all users (authenticated and unauthenticated) to search for members. However, when I access this as an unautheticated user, I'm getting a nasty error (as below). When logged in, all is fine. Following tech support advice, I've made sure that the IQA, content page, and navigation items are set to everyone - read. But, the error still persists. The client is on 15.2.5.

WCM - change a form control inside of a Panel Editor iPart


Is it possible to change a form control inside of a panel editor iPart.

For example I have one such iPart which includes an form control for the user to type into.

The HTML renders like so -

<input name=ctl00$TemplateBody$CW_Web_Details___WEB_BIOGRAPHY id=ctl00_TemplateBody_CW_Web_Details___WEB_BIOGRAPHY type=text maxLength=256 value="saBCIOHbdCH OVHUBVHUBVHBFJOVNJINFVBNFJIBNDCJKNCJK />

WCM and documents (pdfs)

We have a client who is in the process of upgrading from eCM to WCM, In this process, we've identified a plethora of pdfs that are valid content items in eCM, but causing us some issues in WCM. A couple questions along the lines of how users of WCM are handling pdfs, if I may:

  1. The document manager doesn't work in WCM - doesn't load, doesn't function - or at least not by default. Has anyone tried turning this on for 15.2+? Anyone aware of a timeline for this to be a functioning appendage to WCM that is turned on by default (if it's even on the radar)?

Site Search does not return results (15.2)


The site Search on my 15.2 WCM site does not return any results no matter any combination of keywords ('a', 'about', 'about us') entered.

Anyone have any experience with this, or suggestions to fix it?

Many thanks, Jon.

Where's That Report?

Normally, whenever I am looking for the path to a report which is utilized by iMIS, I just go to Utilities<Report Specifications, then I look up the report, click "Parameters" then "Edit", then I can look at the name on the "Rpt. File / Format" field.  Usually, as with the report that raised this question, I will need to look up a location of a Crystal Report so I can tweak it, and I can find them on the one drive that I know of where we've kept such files.  However, recently I've found an iMIS Crystal report that is not even on that drive, or any other of our drives, as far as I can tell.  Is there a way within iMIS that will allow me to find this Crystal Report's location?   Any suggestions?

Only members of the SysAdmin role are permitted to use Query Service


(Not sure if I've tagged this post correctly.)

We're experiencing an issue integrating a Third Party Web Content Management system with iMIS.

Issue summary
Occasionally the QueryService, when accessed as the "Seamless" user, throws an exception instead of returning results.

Steps to reproduce

1. Acquire a Login cookie for the seamless user using the MembershipWebService LoginUserAndProvideCookies action
2. Acquire a Login cookie for the web user using the MembershipWebService LoginUserAndProvideCookies action
3. Using the seamless Login cookie from (1) to authenticate, query the QueryService, GetResultsWithParameters action, using the queryPath of '$/ContactManagement/DefaultSystem/Queries/Advanced/Contact/Entitlements' and a parameter of the web username
4. Result
a. Expected The set of entitlements associated with the web username are returned
b. Actual A SOAP exception is thrown:
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> System.Exception: Only members of the SysAdmin role are permitted to use Query Service.

We have checked the security of the user in (1) that is being used and they are a "full" user and they have the "SysAdmin" role attached.

Internet Batch - Transaction date shows paid thru instead of actual batch date


The dues payment transactions in our internet batch always show a Trans.TRANSACTION_DATE = 6/30/2013 (the paid thru date) instead of the actual batch date (e.g. 7/9/2012) like the other transactions in the batch.
Has this ever happen to anyone else or do you have any idea what could be causing it?

Thanks in advance!
