Noise/warnings in log files


Hi there,

I'm working on an Epi 8 site that has been upgraded many times over the years, and I'm noticing some "noise" in the log files;

2016-04-26 13:23:08,646 [29] WARN EPiServer.Core.PropertySettings.PropertySettingsRepository: Error loading type in PropertySettingsRepository.TryGetContainer. Property PropertySettings has unknown type EPiServer.Editor.HtmlEditorSettings, EPiServer, Version=6.0.530.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fe83dea738b45b7

We're seeing a LOT of these in the logs. Any suggestions on how to clean this up to make the logs more readable?

Sounds like you have a property that uses the old editor with some custom settings. Either find that property and clean it up or hide the log messages. You can hide messages by using 

 <logger name="EPiServer.Core.PropertySettings.PropertySettingsRepository" additivity="false">
        <level value="Error" />

additivity attribute tells log4net not to pass these on to any other loggers.

A bit late response on my part - thank you, I'll give it a shot.
