Starting with DNN 6, there is only one content module that comes with the DotNetNuke Platform: HTML, besides the core framework includes the new Social Modules (Journal, Membership Directory and Social Groups and all admin modules.

Besides there are also thousands that you can download or purchase separate from the application itself.

Starting with its predecessor IBuySpyPortal up to version 5 of the framework a number of modules had been included with DNN. With introduction of DNN 3, these modules had been separated from the core framework code and maintained by volunteer teams. These modules are still available for free download on Codeplex and a couple of them are still maintaned by these teams very actively.
