There are a number of things that change when you progress from developing a module just for yourself to developing modules for a wider audience. DNN has a ton of features to make life easier for you and to protect the user on the other side. This is vital because you have no idea where the module will be installed. Like the version of DNN your module will be running on, other extensions that have been installed or the selected theme. In this post I'll delve into some of the factors influencing the decision which DNN version to target with your extension.

I have said on many an occasion. And I'll readily admit that in part this is just an old coder's frustration with a new technology. One of the many "get off my lawn" moments I've gone through. But like it or not, NuGet is here to stay and in our Microsoft-oriented world it is the standard way to resolve references. Before we had NuGet we'd do this "manually". So before I go any deeper into this, let's first explore what the breadth of the problem is and how we used to do this in the old days. You know, when telephones were still attached to a wall.
Then comes Ukraine, Canada and Russia. And the city that is responsible for most visits is....*drum roll*...Numansdorp...Yeah, google that, my friend.
DNN has settings that allows the user, at login, to choose to stay logged in longer. By default these settings are off and so many go years without grokking these high ROI, easy to use options. Read on if clicking a checkbox and staying logged in for 4 days or 2 weeks sounds useful!!
A free, open source authentication provider for DNN.
You can now Single Sign On from a remote website (if it has implemented SAML) to your DNN Portal.
What the heck is Git and GitHub and how do I use them? There are so many open-source projects out there that I'd love to get involved in, but I don't have a clue how to Git what I need! Can you help?!?!? I have tried, but I have done nothing but embarrass myself and mess things up for others.
There are a lot of blog entries and articles in the Web about that topic, and it has been discussed a million times in the last years - esp. since Let's Encrypt entered the market and Google announced that using (or not using) HTTPS will affect site ranking. But still I find sites in the community that don't use it, so here I want to work out reasons for doing a change.
If you are not a coder by nature, Github is created by aliens. It first it makes no sense whatsoever. At a second glance it does not get better.
But I am Dutch, stubborn and determined to get involved. So, here is the Github for non-devs. No command lines. No power shell!
Since the launch of the website at DNN-Connect in Champery, there has been made quite some progress. More in detail will follow in seperate blogs. Today we had a meeting about what has been done and what is on the plate for next months. Replay of the meeting is on: https://fccdl.in/VhewA3UL3S
We held our monthly Awareness DNN Ecosystem Advisory Group meeting today. This month, we had a lot of activity around the new .org website initiative and documentation. There is so much to be "aware" this month. Don't miss out...
What’s that you say…? You don’t know that there is an open source, for-the-community, by-the-community effort underway to build and launch a community website for the DNN ecosystem? Well, now you know. And if you weren’t aware of that, you also may not be aware that YOU can help us. We need help of all types.
Hello folks! Today I’m happy to announce the release of a new auth provider for DNN Platform, that leverages all the power of Azure Active Directory B2C to any DNN based website. In short, this allows you to use a common and centralized identity service across all your customer facing applications, including the integration of your DNN website. And is Open Source and available on GitHub!
Last year the DNN MVP program was refreshed, turned over to the community, and a new batch of MVPs were nominated, voted on, and inducted into the community. Well, it’s that time again and the nominations for 2019 MVP are open. Get the details on how to nominate individuals for MVP in this blog!
DNN Summit 2020 is pleased to announce that Beth Massie will be the keynote speaker at the conference in February.
The look and feel changed slightly but the site is still very much in line with the DNN Summit brand. The beauty, though, is honestly "under the hood".
A few of us are discussing whether to move away from Slack as a collaboration tool in favor of the forums on the new community website. The two main drawbacks with Slack are (1) that it is "yet another tool" and therefore not immediately available to someone who wishes to join a conversation and (2) that old discussions fade away in time (and also not searchable etc).
The DNN Technology Ecosystem Advisory Group continues to meet on a weekly basis mapping out the future of DNN. The meeting agenda and minutes are shared here in blog entries so that everyone can see the progress being made and conversations occurring in the group.
This May 11th meeting we discussed about the 9.4.0 feedback, release planning, the Dnn upgrade service and more.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know there was a DNN party earlier this month in Switzerland. The party was called DNN Connect and held in the Alpine mountain village of Champéry. As both the president of DNN Connect and the location manager for this event, I had quite a bit to do with proceedings this year. So the hole I dropped into when I waved the last attendee goodbye was immense. A severe case of the post-conference-blues. So besides picking up "regular work" again I've been staring at my monitor thinking "now what?" Well, time to reflect on this event.
In this session, we covered some of the new structured content solutions put in place to handle content on the new DNN Community website (https://dnncommunity.org).
If you’re in the developer community, and especially if you’re using or near any Azure conversations, you’ll continuously hear someone suggest Let’s Encrypt when it comes to securing your domain name. You know, that thing you do to allow your website to use the HTTPS protocol to get that lock in front of it in the web browser. I’ve tended to use NameCheap.com these days. They’re cheap like their name suggests, and they’re super easier to use. However, things just got even easier.
