9 DotNetNuke Videos Tutorials - UDT Module, Token Replacement, Skinning Search Box

DNN Creative have released issue 29 of the DotNetNuke Magazine.

In this issue we walk you through the User Defined Table (UDT) core module. This module is a very flexible module and we explore in detail the various configurations that this module can create. We cover creating tables, templates, filters, paging, sorting, calculated columns, and XSL transformation file editing and generation.

We then demonstrate Token Replacement, which allows you to place tokens within the content of the Text / HTML, Newsletter and UDT modules. The tokens can display information such as the username, first name, portal title etc. Token Replacement provides a powerful way of personalizing the user experience.

Following this, we have included a skinning tutorial which walks you through various techniques that you can use to style the search box in DotNetNuke.

Alongside the tutorials we have reviewed the Live Content web 2.0 module.

To finish, we have created a video interview with Dave Snow, covering his DotNetNuke website, CSS skinning, modules and tips. This is a 100minute video interview where Dave walks us through his website as an administrator. It is available for free download from
