DotNetNuke ASCX Skinning and Open Web Studio Tutorials

DNN Creative have released issue 46 of the DotNetNuke Magazine

This issue takes a look at the professional's method for creating DotNetNuke skins, ASCX skinning. The main benefit of ASCX skinning, over other skinning methods, is that it is much quicker to create a skin in DotNetNuke using the ASCX method.

Other benefits include:
  • Make changes live on the website without re-parsing or re-installing the skin
  • Instantly see edits and changes you make to your skin code
  • View at a glance all of a skin tokens properties
  • Visual Web Developer Express will suggest the attributes that are available for each of the DotNetNuke tokens
We demonstrate all of these techniques and show you how to get started with ASCX skinning in DotNetNuke.

We also have part four in our series on the Open Web Studio Tutorials. This latest episode demonstrates how to add personalisation to the knowledgebase module using InterModule Communications and creating a ‘my saved articles’ module. We also demonstrate how to create a Tooltip using JQuery, how to change the “fetching data” message, how to enable Rich Text / HTML articles and how to create a multi-category selection for each knowledgebase article.

This issue concludes with our newest podcast covering the latest DotNetNuke News as well as more tips and tricks.

This issue comes complete with 11 videos and 1 podcast!
