Welcome to issue 44 of DNN Creative Magazine.
This issue begins with a tutorial on the iFinity URL Master module. The URL Master module is one of the essential modules for your DotNetNuke websites as it creates Search Engine Optimised URLs and eliminates duplicate content from the Search Engines.
The URL Master module allows you to create Human and Search Engine friendly URLs. It lets you replace spaces in URLs with characters you specify, such as hyphens. It allows you to use your own keywords and phrases within the URLs for your DotNetNuke pages, as well as incorporating various options for custom redirects. This module is very useful for eliminating duplicate content and replacing old websites with new DotNetNuke sites.
Next we demonstrate OnyakTech’s Host Commander module. This module provides many useful functions for the Host Super User. With the Host Commander module you can set up scheduled jobs such as SQL queries, view portal statistics for all portals from one area, view the data from the tables in your database, and execute stored procedures.
Following this we have the second part of our new series on 'How to Build a Public Knowledge Base Module' using R2i’s Open Web Studio by Paul Deschenes. In this instalment we explore the actual coding process. We show you how to manually build a module so you can get a full understanding of building a query, using AJAX calls and OWS actions so that you can go on to build your own OWS modules of any type and requirement.
Included with the OWS tutorial this month is a ‘mini’ tutorial on how to import the configuration source code (which we provide with each tutorial) into Open Web Studio.
Finally, we have a podcast covering the latest DotNetNuke News as well as more tips and tricks.
This issue comes complete with 16 videos and 1 podcast!
