Hey all 

I ahve absolutely no idea where to start with DotNETNuke. I have downloaded and installed DNN3.2.2 and I now want to start creating my website with the help of DNN. I'm using .NET framework 1.1 and Visual Studio 2003. How do I go about starting a new webpage and using the DNN functionality to make manage my content?

Thank you

Have you installed DNN, yet? Either way, download the docs and go over the ones that you need help with. That's the best place to start. You can also find tutorials online that might be helpful.

thanks for the reply.

Yes I've successfully installed DNN4.x and I have all the documentation. The thing is where do I even start creating my site and how do I incorporate all these fantastic modules that DNN comes with? Obviously I design the site using ASP.NET but how do put in the modules etc?

Login as host (username: host, password: host). Once logged in, you should see a control panel at the top of the screen which allows you to create pages and modules, edit the current page's settings, and a number of other things. When modules have been added, there is an "action menu" that allows you to manage each module instance. Typically, this is a blue down arrow. Simply hover over that and click the appropriate option.

Typically, people tend to learn how to manage DNN by clicking around. Start with that and ask more specific questions as they come up, if you still have any. There are probably tutorials around, but you'll have to search Google.

Theres just one problem with that, I can't get to my default page, it says that the page cannot be found. Is there any way I can uninstall DNN4.x and reinstall it? ALso why would DNN say that the page cannot be found? I'm really confused.

If you want to reinstall DNN, simply delete the files and database and re-copy/create them.

I noticed that you said dotnet 1.1 and VS 2003.  You should be using DotnetNuke 3.2, not 4.02.  If you are going to do any module development, you need dotnet 2.0 and either VS 2005 or soem of the free tools to use with 2.0

Actually, you can use modules developed with .NET 1.1 in DNN4. You just can't deploy the source code with it. That's actually how all of the core modules are deployed.

I am using .NET 2 with VS2003. Now I can't login as host or admin. Oh well, I'll persist and see what I can do.
