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.
...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

This site appears to be the most comprehensive list of free custom modules:
Any other sites? I do like how Rainbow gives you a bucket of them - saves a lot of time over having to snoop around and find some of the DNN ones. Is there also a way to list modules as "certified"? Also - is there a decent repository of skins?

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...Module in Module
