DotNetNuke is a powerful and flexible content management system for building websites. It comes with many features for publishing content including tools to create Blogs, Banner Advertising, News Feeds, and much more. But setting up a fully featured website and customizing a complete content management system using the open source DotNetNuke package can be challenging. There are multiple pieces involved and each piece must be correct for the whole to work.
The recipes in this book will safely navigate you around the obstacles and have your own full-featured website using the DotNetNuke CMS with blogs, forums, wikis, user security, and much more up and running in no time. This book will also help you to build your own custom modules using VB.Net and restyle them with your own custom skins.
This book is an indispensible guide for installing, configuring and customizing a DotNetNuke website. It starts by explaining how to download and install DotNetNuke and then covers how to make the most of all the features such as blogs, forums, wikis, banner ads, newsletters, surveys and much more. When you've tried all the available modules, you will find recipes for creating your own custom modules: the tools you need, how to set up a development environment, how to use the DotNetNuke starter kit, and how to compile and deploy modules. Further, there are recipes for designing a database, creating stored procedures and debugging modules. You'll also learn the techniques of styling your website using skins and even how to create a site with multiple languages.
