I’ve been thinking a lot about using DotnetNuke for the website at work and for some of the clients that I’ve done web design for. I’ve created a lot of custom programs for the work website though and I would certainly need to create modules out of them so that they would play nice with DNN . I’m really interested in DNN anyway, although I am not currently using it for any of the web sites we run or host.
This sample chapter from Packt Publishing’s "Building Websites with VB.NET and DotNetNuke 3.0" illustrates how to build and use a custom module for DotNetNuke 3.0. DotNetNuke is a free, open source evolution of Microsoft’s celebrated ASP .NET reference implementation, the IBuySpy Portal Solution Kit. It has developed into an advanced web content management system with tools to manage a dynamic and interactive data-driven website.
