Our graduate school is currently using Rainbow as a platform for our intranet (fortunately we have not launched yet). We have reason to believe that the installation of Rainbow we are currently using is corrupt or somehow malformed, due to multiple errors we have experienced that cannot seem to be replicated on other ASP.NET forums users. (The latest involved the development of a custom module that implmented the PowerGrid)
Because of this possibility, I am thinking it would be best to start from scratch and create another Rainbow installation on a separate server. However, because we ...SSL in a Rainbow Portal
Can anyone please say anything regarding SSL on a rainbow portal? Using SSL for the entire site is not an option. The webconfig implies you just need to apply SSL to the "secure" virtual directory, but there is never any indication to the user (or me, the developer) that anything is every really being encrypted by SSL.
I've searched everywhere for this. The lack of documentation is pathetic.
If it doesn't support this, then what's the section in the web.config entitled <!-- secure server, SSL enabled --> for?...how customizable is Rainbow Portal?
I was wondering if you could tel me if I can use CSS layouts instead of table layouts for Rainbow Portal? is the code seperated from the design? does it have to be a 3-pane layout?
Yes, there are design layout guides available at:
You can create custom combinations of css, 2 pane and three-pane master pages with several different tab/menu options(vertical/horizontal) as well....Rainbow Portal unstable

I suggest allowing registered users to "test drive" the portal application, which includes limited access to administration configuration (without access to change settings) and usage of every module, similar to how www.dotnetnuke.com shows the modules in action, but only with full admin access (except write) to show users the power of the rainbow app. Honestly, is there something to hide?
Hi Scoob.....been a while since I have seen you post on a rainbow forum....have you stopped using it now?
In regards to your suggestion of demoing the modules, I'll pass it onto graz.

I am fairly new to the .NET platform and want to use a portal system for our Internet and Intranet web sites. I am registered at both DotNetNuke and Rainbow Portal.
The differences I can see is that the Rainbow Portal is written purely in C# and has many more modules but seems a little less organized than DotNetNuke.
I would welcome comments on both sides to get better informed as to what the strengths and weaknesses of both are.
Mike -- there is already a raging discussion on this very topic.

Rainbow or DNN?
Does anyone have a point of view
This has been discussed many times. We here at the dnn forums are completely biased. But in a nut shell look at
a. the post/thread count of the two forums.b. the number of 3rd party module availablec. the long term direction (support for vs 2005 and asp.net 2.0...)d. the speed at which the product is developingmatchbx

I'm a die heart C# person and I would've loved to see DNN written in C#. It looks like DNN has a lot of momentum behind it. DNN guys are doing a great job constantly improving the product.
Is there any momentum on the Rainbow camp? May be there is, I just haven't noticed it. I'd love to get some feedback from the Rainbow camp as to where Rainbow is going, how you guys perceive DNN and its momentum. Do you guys have a different vision/mission? Is there a Rainbow v2.0 in the horizon?Thanks,Sam
