Welcome to issue 38 of DNN Creative Magazine.
This issue focuses on Search. We look at the Core Search in DotNetNuke as well as review two Search Engine modules available for DotNetNuke.
We begin by demonstrating how to setup and configure the DotNetNuke Core Search. The tutorial demonstrates how to ensure your content is indexed, how to increase the search effectiveness of your site, and how to configure the Search Results. We show you how to set up a Google AdSense Affiliate ID and insert it into Google search results and finally demonstrate how to configure the Search Skin Object to suit the needs of your site.
Next we concentrate on Podcasting within DotNetNuke. As an example we demonstrate how we setup the podcasts on dotnetnukepodcast.com. We recently made some improvements to the website by using Ventrian News Articles module. We demonstrate how we convert this module into a Podcast module, how to setup an iTunes podcast compatible RSS feed and how to promote it to the iTunes store.
Following on from the tutorials we have two search engine reviews: Xepient Solutions Open-Search Engine v2.0 and Venexus Search Engine and Software Collection. Both of these modules have gone through some thorough testing this month and we share the results with you in the Search Engine Module Reviews section.
This issue also brings the return of our ‘How Did They Build it..?’ series of interviews, this time we speak to LogicSpectrum.com covering two of their websites and the processes they took in creating them.
To finish the issue off we have three Podcasts. The first is an interview with Tom Kraak from Seablick Consulting where we discuss SEO within DotNetNuke, the second is a review of OpenForce Europe 08 and the third is our regular DotNetNuke News series.
This issue comes complete with 7 Video Tutorials, 2 Module Reviews and 3 Podcasts!
