ERRMSG: The resource URL cannot be longer than 1024 characters

NOTE: This has been resolved with InstantForum.NET 2010-5.

After installing the latest security update for ASP.NET you may receive the error below when attempting to view a forum within InstantForum.NET 2010-4 or below.

Error Message

Exception Type:        System.InvalidOperationException
Exception Message:     The resource URL cannot be longer than 1024 characters. If using a CompositeScriptReference, reduce the number of ScriptReferences it contains, or combine them into a single static file and set the Path property to the location of it.
Exception Source:      System.Web.Extensions
Exception Target Site: GetScriptResourceUrlImpl


This problem occurs due to the number of composite script includes within the ASP.NET page. To resolve this problem download the attached file below. Extract the Messages.aspx & ControlPanel.aspx file into your InstantForum.NET root directory. Overwrite the existing files with the new files enclosed within the ZIP. This should resolve the problem.

Thanks Farhan. I'm pleased to hear this helped. This will of course be resolved out the box with the next InstantForum.NET update :)
