sunblognuke v5 for dnn

Finally the SunBlogNuke 6.0 is available to free upgrade today and it will be first version of next generation blog optimized for DNN6 & DNN7. In this building we fixed some critical issues, including daylight savings time issue with removing timezone option and Windows Azure Cloud Compatibility; plus implemented lots of enhancements, such as feature related posts with thumbnail and posts migration between blog instances in the same portal/website.

And next we will focus more attentions on mobile devices, including responsible theme and App to manage blog posts/comments. Now we are trying to find professional designer, if you are interested in our blogging/article module or familiar with DNN skin design, you can contact us and help us design better theme with HTML5.

Major Highlights in v6.0:
Min DotNetNuke version required: v6.0.0

  • ENH - supported to feature related posts with thumbnails.
  • ENH - implemented posts migration between blog instances in the same portal/website.
  • ENH - compatible with Windows Azure Cloud.
  • ENH - supported embed slideshow with optional extension "FancyGallery".
  • ENH - supported "subscription management" panel and notification for blog owners/website admin about subscription changed, such as subscribed or unsubscribed.
  • FIX - thumbnail issue with png transparent.
  • FIX - daylight savings time issue with removing timezone option.
  • FIX - always exception occurred when saving blog settings.
  • FIX - meta description with html entities like '&amp ;' etc.
  • FIX - trackback bug not based on blog settings.
  • FIX - 'keywords' issue in the tag view and resolved it as "NOINDEX, FOLLOW".
  • FIX - comments with HTML tags.
  • FIX - resolved the upload button of post thumbnail not clickable.

NOTE: from v6.0 the SunBlogNuke will begin to not support DotNetNuke 5.x any more because it will utilize core APIs introduced from DNN6+, such as daylight savings time. If you are still using the dnn5, you don’t have to be worry about it because we will also maintain independent branch of the older version 5.8.x, which will always be compatible with dnn5 and may be updated with fixes without new features any more.

You can get it here. We hope that with this generation dnn blog module  you can enjoy the blog writing and it will make your life better; plus if you have any good advice about our products, please feel free to leave a comment or contact us.
