I will be very honest with you, and I think that most people will agree. DNN is the absolute best CMS on the market today. It is well supported by the community and the DotNetNuke Corporation itself.

You ask about the best fee plugins… This all depends on what your needs are. The best free plugins are the core modules provided by DNN, out of all of those plugins (modules), “I” think the HTML Module is the most versatile.

You can get free plugins all across the internet that will meet specific needs. To develop your own DNN Modules all you need (in the most basic form) is text writing software such as notepad or you can download Visual Studio Express.

The best place to learn about DDN and its capabilities are here in the DNN forums, and

Good luck.

If you download DNN 6.0.2 install package from, you will find all free modules of the DNN teams in /install/module folder. There are a number of other great free extensions for DNN on Codeplex.

you can log in as host and go to host->extensions and click more extensions . This will search across both codeplex and snowcovered, so if you order by price you'll see the free ones. Alternatively you can view most of the codeplex modules via

Most of the free extensions are demo's. That's not what I call a free extension, sorry but I consider this misleading.
