This article is about the use of templates in DotNetNuke modules, specifically the new Blog module. The aim is to provide some background to those interested as to why I chose the templating mechanism that I did. And how it works.
At the beginning of this year I took it upon myself to rewrite the DNN Blog module. You know, the “official” core version. Why? Well, that will be the subject of another blog post. In this post I just want to talk about a new path I’ve taken in this module with regard to the way it is packaged and instantiated on a page.
Just a few days ago the snowplow poles have gone into the ground along our roads.This means two things: 1. the snow is coming, and 2. it’s conference season. Every year around this time of the year there is the main US DotNetNuke conference. This year it’s called DotNetNuke World. It’s in Orlando on November 9-11 and I will be attending. And just like 2007 and 2009 I will be presenting as well.
I’ve kept rather quiet lately as I’ve been working hard on this new version of Document Exchange. But just now I feel this is now at a stage where it can begin being released in the wild. DMX 6 builds on the strong features of DMX 5 and adds a bunch more. While at the same time effort has been devoted to try and slim down where possible.
Please note we are located in Europe. Business hours are weekdays between 9 AM and 6 PM local time (Central European Time) which corresponds to 3 AM and noon EST.
