DNN Content: The growth of community content about Dotnetnuke

The steady growth in registered users (600.000+ and counting) and downloads for the platform produces not only a growing installed base of users. Lately, the wealth of resources related to Dotnetnuke is evident as well. Almost everyday I come accross blog posts and articles about DotNetNuke. Although most are code related, desining and user oriented content is found throughout the web.

It is not news that DotNetNuke brought the web to novice coders, non-developers and hobbyist from the very start. The health of the project in its fifth year is a sign for late adopters, something that might prove to be the tipping point for DNN.

Philip Beadle, Joe BrinkmanAntonio Chagoury, Chris Hammond, Charles Nurse, Mitchel Sellers, from the DNN Team frequently provide rich tips and articles here at the Blogs and at their personal blogs.

Mitchel was an already prolific poster, both at DNN forums and his own personal blog, before becoming a DNN team member (he's on his way to become a published DNN book author as well). Other users do not post as frequently, but many do share their experiences and tips about DNN. I have been following some of them and I want to share a few that picked my interest:

Chris Hammond has created a site that is a very useful service for the community. is a by request service that aggregates DNN exclusive content from Blogs. He's been sahring knowledge in his own site for a number of years already.

Charles Nurse also posts (a lot) about DotNetnuke at

Mitchel Sellers prolific posts are available at

I particularly enjoy former DNN team member Nina Meiers written trials and tribulations. She's candid as well as savvy and her insight is enriching for anyone.

Aussie and former DNN team member blog with useful content is Ventrian's Scott McCullough. You might recall his Friendly URLs contribution to the framework. He's not posting as often as in previous years, but his blog still has information.

DNN Friday was a popular blog that has not been publishing content as frequently, but still a great resource, specially for SEO content

DNNSecrets, woaychee, dnchannel, .NetAnswers, DotNetNuke Fun have miscelaneous DNN content and tips.

Rafe Kemmis is a very articulate poster that I found to have entertaining and useful monthly posts.

Cuong Dang, an Engage colleague of Chris Hammond has very interesting content about skinning.

That's it for now, there are of course many more and I might post about other bloggers in the future. If you want me to see yours, send me an email to [email protected] with the address and a short description.
