SunBlogNuke 5.0 Optimization & Better User Experience

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. If you are still using the dnn4, you don’t have to be worry about it because we will also maintain independent branch of the older version 4.x, which will always be compatible with dnn4 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.

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. :)
