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After the acquisition of Active Modules by DNN (formerly DotNetNuke) Corp, the position of original Forum module had been replaced by the Active Forums Module and the status of development looks stopping currently.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.

Why Mega Menu Not Work in DNN6

Yesterday I encountered one strange behavior on DNN 6.2.9 -   DNN Mega menu dropdown is only visible to work when I login with admin/host account but the registered users doesn't see it. In the first looks, it should be caused by some jQuery plugin not registered correctly. After investigation a while, we found that the jQuery hoverIntent is the problem and we have to manually register it in our skin in default. Some code snippets below looks helpful:

 <script runat="server">
    protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
         var scriptPath = ResolveUrl("~/Resources/Shared/Scripts/jquery/jquery.hoverIntent.min.js");
         //for mega menu we need to register hoverIntent plugin, but avoid duplicate registrations 
         Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptInclude("hoverintent", scriptPath); 

However, there is an elegant workaround to fix this issue – the core jQuery skin object is your better choice. 

<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="JQUERY" Src="~/Admin/Skins/jQuery.ascx" %>
<dnn:JQUERY ID="dnnjQuery" jQueryHoverIntent="true" runat="server" />

The following properties for the skin object can be set to True/False (False by default):

  • DnnjQueryPlugins - If true, the dnn plugins used for panels and tabs will be loaded in addition to jQuery and jQueryUI.
  • jQueryHoverIntent - If true, the HoverIntent script used for tooltips will be loaded in addition to jQuery.
  • jQueryUI - If true, jQueryUI will be loaded in addition to jQuery.

sunblognuke v5 for dnn

Finally the SunBlogNuke 5.0 is available to free upgrade today and it will be first version of next generation blog optimized for DNN5 & DNN6. In this building we completed few critical performance optimizations with cache mechanism and enhanced admin panels with uniform UI for better user experience, for example, we provided a new dashboard, which allows you to see the both published and draft posts, categories, tags, and comments pending approval at a quick glance.

Major Highlights in v5.0:

  • ENH - Implemented paging control with better user experience.
  • ENH - Included dashboard panel with lots of awesome widgets, such as Statistics & Quick Press.
  • ENH - Optimized theme configure.
  • FIX - Bookmark not compatible with the latest 'sharethis' widget code.
  • FIX - Update failure on the configure 'Module Extension' panel due to invalid email address field.
  • FIX - Import bug with blogml - views & permalink not updated correctly.

NOTE: from v5.0 the SunBlogNuke will begin to not support dnn4 any more because it will utilize lots of core APIs introduced from DNN5+, such as Taxonomy.
