When to use Static Page Module, HTML Page Module, and Custom Module
I'm trying to figure out the pros and cons of using Static pages, the HTML Page Module, and the Custom Module.
Background: I'm using the CSK to make an old HTML web site easier to maintain. I have a bunch of old Photo Galleries (yes, several of them containting hundreds of images) that would take many days to convert to using the Photo Gallery module, so I'm researching ways to convert the old pages that isn't so painful. I don't care if the new photo galleries (which will use the Photo Gallery module) match the look of the old ones, so converting the core HTML on t...Customize RSS Module? or a custom module?
I would like for example that the rss module extracts info from different rss feeds on my page. but in a customized way
For example the last article, the last new, the last event.
To avoid upgrade issues consider creating a custom module.
I havent realy checked th rss module but isnt the features you want replicated by a custom xsl file. Or you could check out the other rss modules that are out there
It is possible in xsl to extract info from different xml

Are there any instructions on what it takes to convert an IBuySpy Custom Module to DotNetDuke. .. What do I need to add or change.
There is a developer whitepaper included with the DNN download I think or you can download the whitepaper at www.dotnetnuke.com.

I am having trouble going from one module to another module.
My source module contains a calendar user control (Brainjar's better
calendar). In the day_render event of the calendar control, I add
a label to each day and set the text property to an href tag:
<a title="Drinks with John"
I am trying to leave the module with the calendar to go to another
module's view control. This link takes me to the view control of

First of all, I´m very unexperienced in developing modules, but trying to learn.
I have downloaded some modules including the source. Just downloaded Scott McCullochs NewsArticle module.
I would like to play with them and do some changes and modifications, but I do not really know how to do.
Can you give me some advise on best practises how to do? I am using VS.Net but i´m still a newbie, and I don´t know how to set up a development environment for this.

GreetingsI am creating a support system module which will require the ability to add sub modules. For example, there is an admininstrators section in which suport requests are administered, anwsered, solved etc.There is to be another function in the admin section of the support module in which admins can upload a new support form template module, ie, say an admin wants to set up a form for users to lodge a request for new hardware, the form will display all required fields, graphics, validation etc for that request. Another support form template might be to have a new user set up on the acti...Optimized VS.Net Solution for custom modules + free modules
I like to leave the DNN core code untouched when I do my module development. Also, I like to work with a clean VS.Net solution which has my custom modules and none of the core projects. After playing around with it for some time, I have created a VS.Net Solution that allows me to do exactly that and I would like to share it with anyone interested. It's called "My Modules" and can be used to develop/debug DNN modules without requiring any core project references.
I have blogged about my solution in detail and also posted it for download. In the download package, I have also inclu...Integrating a custom module or any module into .net nuke with vis. dev. express
Ok I am using .net nuke and visual web developer 2005 express edition. I am new to both.
My problem is this...dotnetnuke is installed and working great and I
have made changes and used the default modules for various pages on my
new site. However, now I have reached the stage where I need a
module template where I can use asp.net to write my own code to

into the site. I copied a module folder that I downloaded called

I've gone through this nightmare to move a site from 2.1.2 to
3.1. I have to say, on an aside, that if there's no better way to
upgrade than to delete all custom modules, DNN will not survivie in the
long term...at least the selling of custom modules won't. It's
too much a high cost, beyond the price of modules...never mind there's
absolutely no regulation on testing these modules to ensure that they
delelte themselves correctly (and also delete all of themselves, like
the tables, foreign keys, stored procs, etc.. If a user isn't a
db expert, right now upgrading a f...Custom desktop modules to be Admin modules?
Well, I have to put some custom desktop modules to the Admin level since they are all used by some other modules.
Module A,B,C are common modules, while Module X1, X2, X3,X4,X5..... are not common, and X1,X2,X3,X4,X5... use Module A,B,C.
And I noticed that the way now DNN does with the admin tabs is similiar with normal tabs but they have no AdministratorRoles. And I also find that there is one file called admin.template in the portal folder. I can find all the definitions of the admin tabs. I simply do the same as what I find, the my own tab is there, the when I click,...Is there a way to call a module from inside of your own custom module?
Is there a way to call an already uploaded module from a completely separate module?
Yep. Depends on what you want.
Easiest way is to add the existing module as one of the controls of
your own module. You can then call it just like any other control in
your own module (e.g. use EditUrl to format the link).
...Custom module / error handeling in module settings
I am working on a custom module, and I need to do some server side
validation in the settings page/control of the module, and if the
validation fails I need to show the user an error message.
I tried to use the DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Skin.AddModuleMessage in the UpdateSettings() method, but the messages does not show up, in fact DNN sends me back to the view page.
I have also tried to use the AddPageMessage, but with the same result.
In the view part of the module the AddModuleMessage is working fine and showing messages on the top of the pane.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
...Custom module disables adding additional modules
Does anyone have any ideas why a custom module, after successful addition to a page, would them disable the addition of additional modules - core or custom?
This is my first sizeable custom module. The code was developed as a normal web app and ported to a DNN module using the templates from Vicenç Masanas.
The module works as intended. I am not doing anything exotic, just accessing database info, displaying it to the user, and processing input. I am using a few custom ASP.NET controls to display list data and provide a checked list box for user input. I did...DotNetNuke Module with custom? controls on it.
I'm having a problem with a module I'm building and its relating to some kind of control(server, user, html,web etc - I dont know the difference between them) that I'm using.
First of all, what is the difference between server, user, html, web, and custom controls?
ok, now for my problem:
I have a DotNetNuke module which is dynamically loading a bunch of controls.
This works fine.
Two of the controls I have are Projex.Controls.TextBox and Projex.Controls.SuperTextBox
A TextBox is a Class-only (.vb) file that inherits from System.Web.UI.TextBox and has some ...
