Welcome to the seventh issue of DNN Creative Magazine.
In this DotNetNuke training series we have released a free pure CSS skin ‘Simple Red Leaf’ which has many advantages over the traditional table based skin, such as: accessibility, flexibility, print view, search engine friendly, small file size, etc.
Alongside the CSS skin are supporting documents to help you get started with creating your own CSS skins, covering techniques for improving skin and module coding standards, minimising CSS code, enabling browsers to operate in standards compliance mode and techniques for testing skins.
Following some of the techniques developed in this CSS skin we have documented how to add some of the features to your own skins. This includes how to enable skins to use resizable text within Internet Explorer and how to replace the Solpart menu with the HouseMenu.
These elements are demonstrated in our series of how to build a website using DotNetNuke
Laurence Neville has also taken the time to share his experiences of creating a DotNetNuke website in Hebrew, which raises some interesting issues, such as setting the text to display from right to left.
This issue comes complete with 10 video tutorials and a free skin.
