So I've inherited a project from a supervisor. They've invested a lot of time and money into the Dot Net Nuke architecture and system for this implementation. Now, they are essentially looking to "simplify" the Content Management Portion.
So what I mean, they want to create a simple Registration Form. Once that is submitted; it will auto-manipulate the Dot Net Nuke Site to change the content. Rather then the user logging into Dot Net Nuke to manage the content.
A weird request- I know.
Anyways, I'm trying to plan this lovely implementation and the only thing I can think of would be to manipulate the Dot Net Nuke database myself. Essentially write these values directly to it.
1. Is that even possible?
Some of the things they'd like to manipulate are:
- The menu choices.
- Physical Content on the page; to auto-fill a Generic HTML Module.
- Even to link to an external server to fill with Documents.
Is that possible? If so could you at least point me in a direction to where I might research where Dot Net Nuke's tables exactly reference with what values. So I can change a massive bulk of the site.
I've downloaded the database schema, but what else should I know? I'm assuming that anytime a database update occurs to Dot Net Nuke it will break this automation.
Thank you for your help.
