When clicking on the Messages folder in the Settings section of the workarea, the error below can occur.

Exception message: subscriptionmessages.aspx.cs(29): error CS0234: The type or namespace name 'AlohaEditor' does not exist in the namespace 'Ektron' (are you missing an assembly reference?) 

The registration for the aloha control is missing within the aspx file of subscription messages aspx page.

  2. Right Click on the subscriptionmessages.aspx file and edit (in choice of editor)

    <%@ register tagprefix="ektron" tagname="AlohaEditor" src="controls/Editor/Aloha.ascx" %>
  4. Save the document and refresh the workarea.
