Hi everyone,

Re: the subsites module. We're running 2.4.2, with latest Subsites, DOM and Image_Gallery. Anytime, we do 'Look for New Files' in the Filestore, the 100's of Subsites homepage URLSegments get changed to 'home-2', 'home-3', etc. In addition, an 'Uploads' directory gets created (which we don't need).

One item to note: we used to have 'cmsworkflow' installed but it's not anymore.

I've researched it a bit and I'm surprised there's not more folks commenting on this in the forums, so it must be unique to our setup. We started this project on 2.4 beta1.

Has anyone experienced any similar issues? Or could anyone point me to the code that would be changing the URLSegment in the assets/sync function?

I'm wondering if our database schema is corrupt.

Many thanks!!

Hey Wilson,

Yes I am having a similar issue on a project I'm working on at the moment, I get the issue of pages being renamed to home-2 etc, also issues with the image uploader panel in the TinyMCE content editor where the list of folders seems to keep increasing and strange duplicate folders appear.

Good job opening a ticket... hopefully we can get some weight on this issue if other are having the same issues please post here!

thanks :)
