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.

DNN Development Templates Update

A few months ago I released V4 of my DNN Development templates, which included a new project template for Themes (skins). This weekend I was working on a new theme (skin) for a customer project and came across a few changes I needed/wanted to make to the Theme project template, so you get to benefit from those changes as I have put a new release out of the project templates.

Why should you list your open source extensions on the DNN Store?

One of the best things I love about the DNN platform is the ease of building, releasing, and updating Extensions for your website. If you need custom functionality you can either build something yourself, or likely find something that someone else has developed previously that might fit your needs.

If you are an extension developer for DNN (previously DotNetNuke), you have many options for how you can get those modules into the hands of potential customers. If you want to get your modules into the hands of as many different users as possible, you can’t just stick to one distribution mechanism, you need to reach out and try to get your extension available in as many places as possible.

How to automate the packaging of your DNN Module

I must admit, the work I have done over the years with DotNetNuke has involved working with modules that I control, build, and have a say in. I am set in my ways of how I like to do things, and believe that my approach to DNN module development is one of the easiest approaches to the DNN platform, because of this I have put a lot of time and effort into my Module Development Templates.

Occasionally I come across other people’s modules in my consulting work, and it tends to frustrate me when I have to do things outside of my own little “perfect module development environment”. I want to be able to switch to “Release” mode in Visual Studio and build, and have the scripts package the module I am working on so that I can easily deploy it to a customer’s development or staging environment. I had just such an experience this evening, working on customizing a module for a customer, and they had the Source to a third party module that I needed to make changes to. There is no packaging or build process anywhere inside of this module, even to the point where there are missing files in the “source” project itself.
