Another shot of nostalgia regarding DotNetNuke

So I’ve been a busy guy lately, I’ve been taking night classes and I’ve been travelling all over the place, August and September included trips to New York/New Jersey, Boston, Amsterdam, Dubai, Las Vegas, in October and November.  Next week I am headed to California, and then I have another trip scheduled in January to Connecticut. On top of all that I have been working with Patrick Renner on our forthcoming DotNetNuke book, DotNetNuke A User’s Guide that will be printed by WROX.

What else have I been doing? Development has started on the next version of the Wiki module, be sure to stay tuned to my blogs for more updates on that. We’re making some changes to the project in hopes to make it a bit more transparent, hopefully you’ll see more on that in the next couple of weeks! I can’t be fully transparent on that part just yet ;)

So what really prompted this post? I was looking for something cool to do for a forum post on the forums at,, it turned into a blog post, but it will also be my 3000th forum post!

I got into a nostalgic mood because I was coming up on 3000 posts, as well as working on the first chapter of the book as I am writing about about the history (in a much more brief format than Shaun does in the DNN 3 and DNN 4 books). This nostalgia got me thinking, I wonder what kind of forum posts I can find of mine over in the old forums, where the DNN forums originally were located. I have only gone through a few of them but I did get a chuckle out of reading forum posts I made over 5 years ago about DNN.

Here’s a link to some of those old posts, (this is the last of 138 pages, you can navigate forward at the bottom of the page)

I even made one of the first posts in the dedicated DNN Forum that was setup (#3 on this link)

With all that nostalgia in mind, I want to say Thank You to everyone in the DotNetNuke community. Without the community DNN wouldn’t be what it is today, and I wouldn’t be where I am today, THANK YOU!


How about you, when did you get started with DNN? If you look back at that time, what does it make you think of?
