SunBlogNuke Runs well with DNN9

SunBlogNuke Runs well with DNN9

Our DNN blog module SunBlogNuke straight out of the box comes ready to embrace any changes and always compatible well with the latest DNN core package DNN9. Not only we will apply any handy tools, such as SPA framework and Bootstrap UI framework, with our products, but also we assure that SunBlogNuke is still the best publishing tool with News, Magazine & Articles, for example Markdown support with better writing experience and the core Html/Text module is on road of integration.

Customized DNN Forum Project Launched

After the acquisition of Active Modules by DNN (formerly DotNetNuke) Corp, the position of original Forum module had been replaced by the Active Forums Module and the status of development looks stopping currently. No any updates or activity – in my opinion, it will be dead in the end later. Unfortunately, some our websites are still building by DNN Forum Module and we don’t want to switch it to Active Forums Module because its features are enough for us and changing will be a potential risk with time or more works.

Actually it may be a great opportunity to get started a totally new/customized project for DNN Forum. We just want to make it live always and are able to add new features or enhance some pending issues. Well, let us get ahead. We will launch the customized forum project in GitHub(DNN Core Framework had been moved to GitHub, as share in this post DNN Nightly Builds) and it will be Open Source Project always there.

Highlights in the initially building:

  • Added new theme called "FlatBlue" and made it as default theme.
  • Removed multiple post view and only thread detail view without paging.
  • Supported quick reply with Markdown format,
  • Clean UI/coding optimization, such as removing unnecessary table/tr/td tags.
  • Supported relative time to make it look friendly.
  • Fixed avatar issue when current user without any specific profile avatar - never upload it.
  • Fixed issue where meta description with line or whitespace.

You can take a look at how it action here – Forum Community for SunBlogNuke.

All right, if you want to have any thoughts about this topics, such as advices about this behavior, sponsor us with buying coffee for us, please feel free to let us know. Thanks a lot.

Flickr to DNN Blog Module - SunBlogNuke

Our Ultimate DNN Blog Module – SunBlogNuke can be integrated with third-party services via the MetaWeblog API and RSD (Really Simple Discoverability), like Flickr and Posterous. Recently our client Tyler just completed integration with Flickr and also contribute a awesome tutorial for us, in which you will learn how to add blog posts directly from your Flickr account and share a Photo Slideshow into your dnn blog. Now we would like to share it for our community, which you can access from the download page, and hope it makes sense when you are trying to do the same thing but not any clues. In a word, I though that it is awesome gift for us. With the contributed guideline, we would be happy to thank him with a two month extension on his license's access to support and updates. We encourage any sharing for our module because they will be helpful in our community.  If you have more tricks and tips about SunBlogNuke, please share it here or contribute it to us.

Why vote so low for DNN7 release?

Why vote so low for DNN7 release

Actually everyone was looking forwards to DotNetNuke7, which should be equal to the so-called milestone, however, more expectations more disappointed. Let us take a look at the votes in codeplex – until today only average 2.8 rating with lots of lowest 1 star. In my opinion, that may be the lowest rating of all the releases before. Let’s make a discussion why it occurred and how we feel.

Integrated DNN with Facebook comments

facebook-comments-dnnOne of our dnn module products - CommentsPlus is becoming more popular in the dnn environment recently but lots of clients requested more features. And one raised frequently is that it should be built with generic built-in comment system for DotNetNuke website but right now it just integrated with 3rd party comment engines, such as Disqus or Facebook comments. We would like to say sorry for all the clients if it made you confused even this awesome feature included in our roadmap. Meanwhile we will try our best to implement it as built-in comments for dnn as we promised. FYI, in future we will also integrated Google+ comments if it is available :)

Now I just would like to complete the tutorial for Facebook comments integration. Actually the configuration process is similar with Disqus section (Take a  look at it if you are not familiar with this process):

1) Enter the configure panel with the left-top action menu of current comments+ module.

2) Switch to Facebook comments with checking the option [Comment type] as "Facebook". Those options are so self-explained and easily configured;plus some notes below":

  • Application Key: it is "API Key" generated by your own application and requires you create it in the Facebook developer. And please refer to this recourse - How to get Facebook Api key.
  • Identifier key: It is part of the thread identifier key and will append to the "Identifier prefix" in the Disqus thread. In common letting it blank is all right. Meanwhile, it is more useful to integrate Comments+ with other 3rd party modules, for example, when integrating dnn core blog module you can fill in the query parameter "entryid" as the Identifier key, it will check out the query parameter in the load process. If not exist, the comment system will not show. So just visiting the post detail, the comments+ will work as expected.

3) Click "Update" to save the settings.

Congratulations. Now the Facebook comments system will work like a charm. :)

If you need any help or question please feel free to leave your advice or comments.

[Kudos] Integration with Windows Live Writer Seamlessly and Easily

SunBlog's integration with Windows Live Writer allows us to write our blog entries offline, then upload them when ready. It was fast and easy to customize the blog to match our colors and font selections. SunBlog allows us to communicate with fellow ASPDotNetStorefront users in a clean and effective manner.
