Not too long-ago GitHub enabled a new functionality which makes it really easy to support your favorite developers. GitHub previously allowed recurring sponsorships - and while that is great - not everyone wants to (or is able to) sign up for a recurring donation. The good news is that GitHub realized this and adjusted accordingly. Now, if you want to thank a developer for fixing a bug, adding an enhancement, or just simply maintaining a project, you can easily do this via a one-time donation.

In the last versions of DNN platform we have some issues regarding Search Engine Optimization. One of the most important ones has been resolved in 9.9.0. But what if you can not upgrade or you have created some pages but you have no idea which they were and if they are in the sitemap or not?
What I did is take a look at the database as that is where the truth lies. And I have some great tips for you!
Our second and final session at DNN Summit 2021 was about upgrading DNN. After having upgraded literally thousands of DNN websites over the past 18 years, this session is the culmination of everything I've learned over that period of time. Most of the issues we run into tend to be completely avoidable.
Our first session at DNN Summit 2021 this year was a short introduction to search engine optimization (SEO) and then a deeper dive on how to manage the Robots.txt file in your DNN website. Management of this critical SEO file is easier than ever on DNN 9.8 and newer. This blog post is a follow-up to provide resources for the event attendees.

We're here to not only help promote the software that still makes up the core of our business, but also to keep things fun and light-hearted.
Adding custom styles to, or replacing styles in the CKEditor “Styles” dropdown should be relatively easy. Well at least that is what we thought. Yet, recently Mark Anderson, Jeremey Farrance, Mark Buelsing, and myself had to put our collective heads together to figure out how to do just that. Although it took us the good part of a day, we triumphed and thought we should share the specifics with you. This relatively simple task turned out to be the impetus of this series.
When working with DNN’s default HTML editor, “CKEditorProvider” by DNN Connect, the default settings out of the box leaves much to be desired. Even worse, If you have ever tried customizing CKEditorProvider‘s settings, you may have noticed that it is not always as straight forward as you would think, or like it to be. In a multi-part series I hope to clear up some of the mystery by showing you how to customize the CKEditorProvider to streamline your (or your clients) html module workflow, and to put the WYS back into WYSIWYG!
