DotNetNuke tutorials, tips and tricks

Friday, June 01, 2007


Wow, it's been a while since I have posted here - January, didn't realise it had been so long.

As usual plenty has been happening and I will start adding a few posts to catch up with the previous 5 months!

Well, on DNN Creative we have a few things planned but first of all lets outline some of the topics that we have recently covered:

Issue 21 – Site and Event Logs, Scheduler, FAQ, and Media Modules
Issue 20 – Installing DotNetNuke 4.5 and XHTML Compliance
Issue 19 – XHTML Compliant DotNetNuke 4.4 and Upgrading
Issue 18 – DotNetNuke and Blogging
Issue 17 – DotNetNuke Portals
Issue 16 – Skinning Troubleshooting, Vendors, Banners, and Affiliates

Today we have just released the June issue 21 so there is plenty to have a look at.

In issue 20 we broke through the 200 videos barrier and now at issue 21 we are at 214 videos! - I can't believe that I have created so many video tutorials and that we are already up to issue 21.

Since January I have been working on a new skin design for DNN Creative, it is a pure CSS, sIFR based skin. - The design is complete and currently I am applying the skin to a localhost test version of DNN Creative.

Unfortunately as I am doing the switch from tables to pure CSS I am having to manually go into each page and re-code each page which is taking a lot longer than I hoped. - Future skin re-designs should be much easier though as the site will be correctly structured with CSS.

Here's a demo image of the Home Page from the localhost test area, this is pure CSS, notice the headings are using sIFRv3 so I can use any font I wish, the page is scalable, has a print version, is semantically coded, the main content is placed at the top of the source code and the site is XHTML transitional compliant, let me know what you think,
