DotNetNuke dnn Facebook Connector

Description: http://images01.interactivewebs.com/portals/62/dnn_login_css.pngWe are letting a little secret out of the bag today about our Advanced Login Module for DNN.

Part of the dnn module includes a connector to Facebook. This Facebook Connector for dot net nuke allows a DNN website to use Facebook connection to authorize an account for either signup or login to your dotnetnuke website.

This feature is included free in our login module…

But the Big News

We have intentionally not secured that code with licensing. As such you can download the trial of our DNN Login Module and use the Fecebook Connector with your dotnetnuke portal for free.

The module installs (with instructions included in the download package) and can be used with the default DNN login provider. You can use this module of ours without needing to install our advanced login module for dnn at all.

So go nuts and enjoy the dnn facebook connector.

If you want some cool features for login and registration control. Then check out the latest free download of out module here.

Email Limits for web hosting providers

Mail server SMTP email send (rate) limit for popular web hosting providers

dots Why do you need to know your web host’s SMTP email rate limit

If you run a web site and you plan to send out mass emails (for example, a newsletter), it is advisable to send the emails using an authenticated SMTP mail server that matches the nameserver records for your own domain name. This way, your outgoing emails will not trigger anti-spam filters set to identify phishing emails or spammers. For example, if you run a web site at www.my-web-site.com, our advice is to send the emails from a SMTP server name that resolves to the same domain name (like smtp.my-web-site.com).
However, to prevent spam, many web host providers enforce email send rate limits to their customers. The goal of this article is to show you the email send rate limit and options for most popular web host providers, such as GoDaddy, FastServers, HostWay, RackSpace, iPowerWeb and more.

dots Web Hosting Providers – SMTP limit and email rate limits

Important note: Please do NOT take this information for granted, as your host provider can change its mail server policy without any prior notification. It is always a good idea to contact your host provider and ask about the email send rate, before proceeding with a mass email campaign.

    Microsoft Pivot Module for DotNetNuke

    Mine your DotNetNuke user accounts to spot trends in your accounts and signup history. Microsoft "Pivot" allows you to organize and display data like never before.

    The new technology recently released by Microsoft Labs is allowing the visualization of data that would otherwise be difficult to explore.

    Take a look at the Ted Talk Video below to understand this technology, and imagine how you could use it with your DotNetNuke membership data.

    There is nothing else that can sort and arrange data like Microsoft Pivot!

    View our Pivot Video Second

    This video shows a new and revolutionary way of looking at and manipulating data on the web. We took this idea and decided that it would be cool to make a module that automatically generated a pivot view of information stores.

    We, being long time developers in DNN, decided to develop this technology using the scheduler process of DotNetNuke and subsequently produced the DNN Pivot Module. We pushed the design concepts of MS Pivot somewhat, using some smart caching, scheduler processes and image stores to allow the pivot to run with very large data sets.

    Check out the end result of the DNN Pivot Module.

    How do I get the pivot server application to run on IIS 6

    This is an extract from our DNN Pivot Module manual.
    Special Requirements IIS 6 (Windows 2000, 2003 Server)

    If you are running II6 and wish to access the Microsoft Pivot Labs technology, you will need to enable some special configurations. To do this:

    1. Login to your web server and start IIS

    2. Browse to your Web Site or Virtual Directory for the website in question and Rick Click selecting Properties.

    image

    3. Select the Home Directory Tab / Configuration

    image

    4. On the Mappings Tab, select Add

    image

    5. The following data depends on what type of server you are running. 64 bit vs 32 bit, and if you have .net 4 installed or not. The only thing that changes is the path for the .dll file.

    Add the following data: 64 Bit server with .Net 4 installed

    – Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll
    Extension: .cxml
    Limit to: GET
    Script engine: checked
    Verify that file exists: unchecked
    image

    this gives you something like this above. Click OK and repeat the process for the following extensions:

    – Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll
    Extension: .dzc
    Limit to: GET
    Script engine: checked
    Verify that file exists: unchecked

    – Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll

    Extension: .dzi
    Limit to: GET
    Script engine: checked
    Verify that file exists: unchecked

    – Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll

    Extension: .jpg
    Limit to: GET
    Script engine: checked
    Verify that file exists: unchecked

    Add the following data: 34 Bit server without .Net 4 installed

    Not that the location of the four extensions described above will change, depending on your server status. As an example of the change for a 32 bit server without .Net 4 installed the location would change

    From

    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\

    To

    c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\

    So the location of the first file in the example above would be:

    c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll
    still giving a setup that looks the same but with a different path
    image

    You can browse to your servers .net path (C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework) to work out the location of the aspnet_isapi.dll file.
