When I try to save a roster after providing guild name, server. I get the following error:

Not exactly sure what's going on, but if you haven't recently tried installing your most recent version on a clean install,I would recommend doing it. I think there's some broken functionality for new installs.

For starters, trying to save the first roster fails with an application error. Likewise, clicking on the Roster link from within the control panel produces the same error.

The roster does seem to save though, because going to Host settings and restarting the application resets the Roster module, and the rosters you tried to save are now listed in the dropdownlist.

Even though the rosters are defined, you can't seem to actually get any of them to display in the module. Checking the armory data loads, it does appear the database is being populated, but nothing is being displayed on the module.

Sorry for the delay - I'll take a look at this tomorrow.

One thing...what version of DNN and SQL Server are you running on?

And is there anything on the Errors control panel section? (it would note missing stored procedures or db errors there)

As an update - this was a coding logic error...particularly around adding rosters, not with updating them.

Added into my testing list - to delete all existing rosters and add them in new, as well as updating them.

Sorry about that!
