Advantages of DotNetNuke

Advantages of DotNetNuke


Dot Net Nuke or DNN for short, is a simple and convenient to use content management system that is held in high regards. It currently powers over 700,000 websites across the globe. It provides numerous benefits for those looking to expand their businesses.

Just why is DotNetNuke growing in astounding popularity?

First off, it allows the designer to develop functional websites with an array of tools for building lively websites, all while saving time.  It allows the client to authorize content and configuration. The site administrator can easily update the website and add new content or even change the looks without getting knee deep in the linguistics of coding; thus it is extremely cost effective for the client and reduces the burden on the designer.

The user interface is efficient. It allows those with little to no tech experience the ability to manage and update their website without the hassle and stress of traditional methods.

Another advantage for the designer is that DNN is module based so designers can build various unique modules to sell to clients.

Since Dot Net Nuke is a continually growing source, they are constantly developing and adding new features and tools to enable easier functionality amongst its users.  Some of these tools and features include fully customizable skins, modules, data providers, language packs, and templates. 

Skins are packets of code that define what the website looks like. In essence, it is the websites look and feel.  Pre-made skin templates can be bought online or you can reach out to a web design firm specializing in DotNetNuke to get fully customized DNN skins. The skin is applied throughout the website so that pages stay consistent with others. 

Modules serve as the “functionality" of the website and are fully customizable as well. They can be as simple as a text/html module that allows for easy entry of text, photos and links.  The announcement module allows for brief text-based announcements that contain a title and a short description and can be accompanied by a “read more” link or a link to a new tab or web page with publish and expiration dates.

Other modules with specific functionality include: documents, banner/advertising manager, rotating slideshow, shopping cart and many more modules.

Content can be hidden from some or all users. By module or page, administrators can define which users can view what content. For instance, certain content can be available to registered users, but those who are unregistered will not be able to see it.

Other tools, such as DNN’s multi-language localization feature, allow your website and content to be understood on a global scale. This tool translates the DNN interface into any language allowing administrators from around the world to utilize the potential of DotNetNuke. 

DotNetNuke’s primary focus is on developing and managing website, all while making it easier on the end-users. If you are looking for a content management system, DNN is sure to provide everything you need and more to enhance your web development and help your website excel.
