3 Steps to AJAX-Enable Apps and Modules in DNN (200-400)

DNN has been plagued with slow editing experience since DNN 3 - mostly because of the WebForms Postback system. 2sxc has fixed most of this by now, getting all UI actions to flow in less than 1 second; and Content-updates all reload immediately using AJAX. But for most DNN modules and 2sxc-Apps this is more complex but easy. I've lost many sleepless nights getting this to work, and hope that I can help you by sharing this.

Intro to the DnnMDesign theme for Dnn

DnnC MDesign theme for DnnTo follow up the FREE DnnBootster theme I decided to take it 1 step further with the new FREE, Open Source theme ‘DnnMDesign’.

Adding Content-Blocks within 1-2nd (one second)

We believe that content management must be easy, slick and cool. A core factor to achieve that is a fast UI - in our vision, interactions should take less than 1 second. So we call it the 1-2nd vision. We've already achieved much using AJAX, angular-js, drag-and-drop upload and more.
