I was speaking with another member of the community about general DotNetNuke stuff, and the conversation turned to modules. It was mentioned that there wasn’t a single known open source module that offered the ability to integrate content sliders or banner rotators into your DNN website. There are of course a ton of ways to implement such a feature. Snowcovered has numerous modules that allow you to do this. So, I decided to create a nice and easy one for the Forge.
It’s been a month since I first announced the user group contest for DotNetNuke World. This is actually two contests in one. First, all DotNetNuke user groups are encouraged to compete to get the most members to register to attend DotNetNuke World. The other contest involves the members of the ODUG trying to get the most referrals to register for the conference. Both contests have some amazing prizes. Here is an update of who is in the lead right now.
Do you LOVE DotNetNuke? Do you find yourself running to DotNetNuke events, or jumping to the front of a line just to get a DotNetNuke t-shirt? Have you had the uncontrollable urge to take a picture with the logo, put the logo on something, or meet and greet with some of the most well-known folks in the DotNetNuke community?
You may or may not be aware of a highly useful and engaging third party comment platform called Disqus. Disqus was created and founded in 2007 to allow websites to replace their comment engines with one that offers a much simpler and socially enabled alternative. With features like single sign on, centralized comment management and viewing, enhanced spam controls, consistent cross-site standards, and being able to use the same comment identity and information across multiple sites, it’s a no-brainer to want to use Disqus as your comment engine of choice. So, I chose to build a module to integrate it into DotNetNuke.
I was one of many, many people that opted to begin implementing the Advanced Control panel into my websites, offered by Oliver Hine. And why not? It was and continues to be a great alternative to the built-in control panel that is found in DotNetNuke. This true for me until version 6.0 of DNN was released.
