DotNetNuke Modules–Under the hood UI and jQuery

We have been working to improve the UI of our dnn modules in recent times. This has included extensive updates to the backend administrator management. We have struggled for a long time to find a solution that actually works well for us and well for our clients.

The problem has always been the fragmentation of web technologies and browsers. Browser brands, versions, libraries, server technologies, uptake of new technologies like Silverlight etc has all been issues for us.

It’s one thing for us to develop a great solution, only to find that others struggle to have it implemented correctly. Silverlight is a classic example of this. Versions of SL and operating systems like mac vs pc really make a difference.

What we came up with

JQuery was the solution. Now that DotNetNuke had the core library built into the CMS, we are able to use it and find that most people have little or no trouble with it. We even managed to upgrade or template management system to use the new JQuery based UI. This makes the loading of the template management pages very fast.

Office 2010 Add-ins not working

We have seen a few instances where an Office 2010 Add-in stops working  and cannot be enabled even is deleted and reinstalled.

This can effect our DotNetNuke Module – Microsoft Word Editor, as it uses the Microsoft Office Add-in feature of office.

The cause of the problem lays in Microsoft (again) that have decided to make Word (and other office Add-ins) mark a plugin as “Disabled” if it is ever involved in a slow response or crash.

Good concept to stop plugins crashing word, but how they do it is so unobvious it catches many people out. The plugins are added to a “Disabled” basket, and will never again be activated unless moved from that basket. Even if the add-in is uninstalled and re-installed.

clip_image002

To fix the problem you need to remove the add-in from this list of disabled items in your office application.

It does not escape comment that Microsoft Word remains the only application I know of that has a crash recovery system built into it. Rather than fix the problems that cause it to crash, they built a system to recover after crashes.

Since Word 2000, you can take an INDEX and regenerate it, then fast scroll on the newly created index to crash the entire application. 10 Years of development, and all I can see is tweaks around the edges. No wonder the company is on a massive down hill slide! “Microsoft – Taking the fun out of computing”.

Outlook Social Connector for DotNetNuke

We have completed a new module for DotNetNuke that takes data directly from your website and feeds it into your Microsoft Outlook as a social feed.

Some of you may be aware that Microsoft recently released a new feature in Outlook 2010 called the Social Connector. It allows you to feed data from social sites like LinkedIn and Facebook, into your Outlook.

When someone sends you an email, or you open a contact or calendar item, the social connector will use the email address of the outlook data to find related social information and feed it into your site.

image

With the new DNN module – Outlook Social Connector for DotNetNuke we are feeding data from your DNN website directly to Outlook.

This makes it incredibly easy to see relate a website users activity on your site to an email received by that user.

We are yet to document the module and create a supporting website. As soon as we do, we will be releasing the module. Stay tuned.

Update to DNN Module–Google Analytics Report for DotNetNuke

Description: http://images02.interactivewebs.com/Portals/59/GoogleAnalyticsReportFlat-Optimised.jpgToday we released an update to our Google Analytics Report Module for DNN. The module is an excellent way to bring your Analytics results directly into your DNN website.
