Visual Studio 2017 Development Templates for DNN (DotNetNuke)

image

With the release of Visual Studio 2017 coming in a few short hours, I am proud to release the latest update for the Christoc’s DotNetNuke Extension Development Templates!

With this release I’ve updated my suite of DNN extension templates (modules and themes) to support Visual Studio 2017.

How to find which pages a Module is on in DotNetNuke

With DNN 9, one of the features that has gone missing, is the ability to see which pages a specific module is on. In older versions of DNN you found this functionality on the HOST/Extensions page, but in DNN 9.0.0/1/2 it was left out (I’ve been told it is coming back in DNN 9.1).

DNN Tip: Pruning the EventLog with EventLogConfig

image

In an earlier blog post I talked about the EventLog table and the Exceptions table, specifically in terms of how to “clear” the tables out. This post will talk specifically about how to keep the EventLog table cleaned up to begin with.

In DNN you have the ability to configure if you would like specific EventLogTypes to be tracked or not. By default in DNN there are over 100 different events that can be tracked in the EventLog table. Many of these are turned off by default, you can configure them to be “on” by going to the Admin Logs page in the Persona Bar, and choose the Log Settings tab

DNN Tip: Monitoring the Exceptions and EventLog tables

image

At some point, if you manage a DNN based website long enough, you are going to run into a problem where your database seems to have grown WAY bigger than it should be. I’m not talking a couple hundred megs, I’m talking gigabytes, lots of gigabytes. This post will hopefully help you get that under control.

New Video - Setting up your DNN9 Site

Over the past couple of weeks I've jumped back into recording some DNN tutorials and have been posting them on YouTube. I'll be working on building out many many more videos over the next few months, but one I cranked out last night is near and dear to me. When I visit a website on the public internet, and I can easily tell it is DNN, a number of things tend to annoy me. Primarily things that every web site manager should know and change when using DNN.

DNN 9.0.1 Released

No one else seems willing to do it (other than a security bulletin), so I'll do a quick blog post about 9.0.1 being released! Depending on what the "source" is, it appears that DNN 9.0.1 was released either 12 days ago, or 4 days ago. So ... Continue Reading »

DNN8 DnnImageHandler.ashx 404

With DNN8 a new Image Handler was introduced to provide loading/sizing of images of various sizes. In previous releases the ProfilePic.ashx implementation always looked like it was supposed to do allow for this, but never actually allowed you to resize images in a meaningful way.

The handler in DNN8 allows for this, but I was having a problem as I started using this method in the DNNChat module (new release coming in the next few days) but when I installed it on http://dnnchat.com/ the images were failing to load, and then ended up throwing 404 messages. I wasn't quite sure what the cause was, but decided to check the AUM_ settings in the hostsettings table. In my install there I found a setting AUM_DoNotRedirectUrlRegex that had the following value:

New Visual Studio 2015 Templates for DNN, Now With Wizard for Customizing

VS2015-Templates

I’ve been maintaining my DotNetNuke Visual Studio project templates for a number of years now, one of the things they have sorely been lacking is the ability to “customize” the templates without having to crack open the full source code of the VSIX project, making changes, and then recompiling everything. There are 5 specific strings/values that were ripe for customization, but simply were not easily accessible.

New Module Development Templates for DNN8

With the release of DNN Platform 8 last week it is now possible to develop modules using SPA and MVC patterns within the DNN platform. As Part of the buildup of the DNN 8 release, Will Strohl provided a Pull request to my DNN Extension Project Templates project to help clean up some of the basic module templates to work better on Windows Azure environments, and to prep them for inclusion of new DNN 8 specific templates for SPA and MVC modules.

Early in the fall Joe Brinkman provided a partial SPA project, with the intention of it becoming a project template. I had a little time when it was initially submitted to work on it, but wasn’t able to get everything squared away on the template until early December. It wasn’t until last week that I got additional time to do further testing on the template and fix a few issues that occurred during the conversion to a project template.

DNN Extension Development Templates for Visual Studio 2015

Just over a month ago now, Visual Studio 2015 was released into the wild, I started receiving requests to update my DNN development templates for VS2015 shortly before the release. I typically wait until after the release is RTM to work on templates, simply due to other time commitments and projects. With VS2015 however I was quickly able to get a new release of the Module/Theme development templates out for use.
