    uBlogsy v3.0 with Umbraco 6.1.5 - Error: Specified cast is not valid.

    I just installed clean setup of umbraco 6.1.5, installed uBlogsy 3.0 succesfully.

    When I go try to create a new blog post I get this error : 

    Specified cast is not valid.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. 

    Exception Details: System.InvalidCastException: Specified cast is not valid.

    Anyone know how to fix this ?

    Edit :

    Just tried to install uBlogsy 3.0 on 6.1.4 and I have the same error. both Clean installs.

    Edit 2 :

    I found an issue that is in 6.1.4 and 6.1.5 and is beeing fixed at 6.2.0.

    This issue makes ublogsy not compatable with these 2 versions.

    To get around the problem I downloaded the source for uBlogsy and uHelpsy and u...sy and compiled it all into the site and got around it that way. That wasn't too hard so in case your stuck and just want to update a dll or something this should get it working.
