DotNetNuke. What’s in a name?

This is just a guide for people not in the know.

The name DotNetNuke seems to confuse a few people out there. So we decided to help you out and give you some tips which will help you with minor things like using search engines and keywords.

Firstly: The Dot in DotNetNuke is a word not a punctuation mark!

DotNetNuke = Correct
.NetNuke = Incorrect

Secondly: It is all one word.

DotNetNuke = Correct
Dot NetNuke, DotNet Nuke, Dot Net Nuke = Incorrect

Thirdly: Abbreviations are acceptable

If remembering the first two rule is too much just remember DNN

DotNetNuke, DNN = Correct

So now you know, why not try DotNetNuke and DNN in your search engine and see what happens?

This has been a public service announcement from DNN Creative Magazine!

Note: The use of Dot Net Nuke in a previous blog was purely to see if anyone was paying attention.

DotNetNuke Print Stylesheets and CSS Reference Book

DNN Creative have released issue 35 of the DotNetNuke Magazine.

This month we show you how to create a print stylesheet for use with your DotNetNuke skin.

There is a built in token within DotNetNuke that allows you to print the content of individual modules, however this is limited as it only lets you print one module at a time.

We show you how to:

  • Create a print stylesheet
  • Format the layout of the print stylesheet
  • Remove unwanted content from the print version of your skin.
This is an essential technique for improving the usability of your DotNetNuke websites.

This tutorial comes complete with 7 videos

Also with this issue, we have produced the DNN Creative CSS Reference Book.

This 112 page reference guide shows examples of how to use each CSS property correctly and also displays the examples as they would appear on the page.

This resource is ideal for beginners and experienced users.
