DNN Creative Magazine

March Issue 19 Released

I am pleased to announce that issue 19 of DNN Creative Magazine has been released.

Issue 19 XHTML Compliant DotNetNuke

In this issue we demonstrate how to configure the latest DotNetNuke v4.4 to produce XHTML compliant code.

We explore the new skinning features in DNN v4.4 looking at DOC TYPES and using DROPDOWNACTIONS.

We have also updated the Simple Red Leaf skin as well as the 'How to reduce and validate the default DotNetNuke CSS' article for v4.4.

In February we upgraded DNN Creative Magazine, so we have documented the steps taken and pitfalls to avoid when undertaking a large upgrade project in DotNetNuke.

Finally, we discuss software piracy and how it can affect the DotNetNuke community.


This issue comes complete with 4 videos.
