I do not currently have dnn installed on my workstation but I do have dnn installed on a dev server and production server. I am using visual studio 2010 on my windows 7 client to create a simple hello world web site with a user control name view.ascx and view.ascx.cs
To add the module on a previous dnn server:
1. I simply copied the view.ascx and view.ascx.cs files to the server: Inetpub/<dnnsite>/DesktopModules/MyModules/<module name> folder
2. logged onto the dnn site as user host
3. clicked on Host Tab/extensions/create new module button and Used the following template but replacde Module Folder with my selected modular folder and Resource with my specific module ascx file.
create module from : <control>
owner folder <MyModules>
module folder <module name>
module name <module name>
4. drag and dropped the module to a page.
But now when I copy the view.asc, MyModule is under Inetpub/<dnnsite>/DesktopModules/DnnCorp/MyModules/ and I need to pick
owner folder = DnnCorp
module folder = MyModules
It does not allow me to tunnel down to DnnCorp/MyModules/HelloWorld for the view.ascx user control but rather it creates a new HellowWorld user control at directory level DnnCorp/MyModules
My question: Why am I unable to use owner folder <MyModules> and module folder HelloWorld for the module create ? Or what should I be using to get down to DesktopModules/DnnCorp/MyModules/HelloWorld/view.ascx?
I have read quite a bit about module development but I am simply at the the level of understanding folders, modules etc..
