The three new portals in question are all missing from the ifty_TabModuleCreation table.

I looked at the event log for the time they were created and there’s nothing interesting. I created all three at the same time.

OK, I looked at this problem extensively today.  Turns out the problem is caused by some changes made to DNN in 5.1.3 and 5.1.4.  If you're on this version, then that's the reason.

I have uploaded a new version of the module today with the fix in it : download from here -

However, the fixed version won't create the pages for your existing portals.  For that, you need to run a script.  I've attached the script below - just copy / paste this into your host-Sql page,  then update the 'portalId' value at the top of the script for your target portal id.  Check the 'execute as script' box and click on 'execute'.  This will create the pages for you.

	/* insert an admin / Page Urls page for the new portal */		
	Declare @AdminTabId int, @tabPath nvarchar(200), @tabOrder int

	/* find the admin tab for the portal by working backwards from the site settings control */

The change from 5.1.3 to 5.1.4 would fit in with what I've seen with other portals I've created recently being OK.

The script worked like a treat – thanks so much for that. Your support is second to none – as usual!
