Smashing magazine has published "15 Helpful In-Browser Web Development Tools". Some of you might have already known or used them or a regular basis, the list shows a more complete picture if you haven't seen some items in there. I've been using some of the plugins for a while and when Rich sent over the link today, I thought I put it out so some newbie in DotNetNuke can find it useful.

Adding Custom HTML tag on Page Name?

Filed under: Tips & Tricks

Last week I did some DotNetNuke skinning training courses for a few clients from out of town here in our St. Louis facility. It was interesting to see many scenarios that made you scratch your head and say… I don’t know it allows you to do that. One particular situation that my client has is that she has an external employee time tracking system that requires them to enter their billable time.

Best Tools for DotNetNuke Skinning

Filed under: Tips & Tricks

I often hear from clients or people I do training for asking about the best tools for DotNetNuke skinning. While the question is appropriate to beginners in DotNetNuke skinning, it should be clear for someone who has done skinning before. The answer is “There is none”. If you’re new to DotNetNuke skinning, learning about the appropriate tools for your development is important. But what’s more important is the process of getting the job done quickly and effectively. DotNetNuke skinning isn’t ha...
