... you can see that Tags field mysteriously has became TagNames field:


Do you know why? Is it a different database?

Okay, I've pushed what I think should be a fix for this:

I say "should be" because I was unable to test -- IIS7 can't be installed on XP here at home. I know you've been making some changes -- if you are able to test, grab these changes into your own clone and make sure it works before we flag down @waffles to push this into the trunk.

Edit: The fix is now live.

  • Thank you Jon. I pulled your change and it works! I believe you can now request a merge. Dec 19, 2010 at 22:58
  • By the way, I managed to get it working under Cassini by using raw URLs and commenting out lines with IncomingMessageProperties. Dec 19, 2010 at 23:01
  • @Pavel: Oh, perfect. That's good to know. Thanks for testing. I sent Sam (aka waffles) an e-mail requesting a merge.
