Welcome to issue 58 of DNN Creative Magazine.
In this DotNetNuke training series we demonstrate how to use the new Taxonomy (Categories) and Folksonomy (User Tags) features introduced from DotNetNuke 5.4 onwards.
These new features allow you to categorize and tag both pages and modules within your DotNetNuke portal. We show you the considerations to make when categorizing the content on your website and how to implement categories and tags within your DotNetNuke site. We also show you how to configure the display of the new tags skin object.
Complimenting the Taxonomy and Folksonomy tutorial we show you how to use the Content List module. This module allows you to display a list of content related to how the content has been tagged.
Following this we demonstrate the new features that have been added to the User Profile section of DotNetNuke from version 5.4 onwards, this covers two new modules: View Profile and Messaging Modules. The View Profile module allows a user to view their own profile and the messaging module allows users to send and receive private messages to other registered users.
Next we show you how to use the new Ribbon Bar Admin Control Panel that is now available with DotNetNuke v5.4 onwards. The Ribbon Bar is an enhanced version of the admin control panel which provides a more efficient way for administrators to manage their DotNetNuke websites.
Following this we continue the Open Web Studio tutorials, this month we demonstrate some advanced techniques for customizing the user experience in your DotNetNuke portal. We take advantage of security controls for managing how your users access and use your portals.
To finish, we continue the series of articles on DotNetMushroom Rapid Application Developer (RAD), where we demonstrate how to implement a DotNetNuke user registration module using DNM RAD.
