Why DotNetNuke?

Filed under: Site News

“Why DotNetNuke?” is a question that comes up a lot from people with all different backgrounds; from project managers, developers and designers, to CTOs and CEOs. dnnGallery was launched to feature high quality DotNetNuke sites from the community, with the hope that all of these people asking "Why DotNetNuke?" would be helped by actually seeing some of the great things you can do with the framework.

It's in that spirit that we're asking the community to share their reasons for using DotNetNuke. After all, this is some of the most valuable information for those outside of the community looking in. Dang and I had considered running an email campaign, but email is very limited. So we thought, what better way to ask these questions of our community and get concise, easily digestible answers, than using today's favorite communication medium: twitter?

Please share your reasons for using DotNetNuke on twitter using the #whydnnhashtag.

If you have managed to avoid using twitter this long - maybe you should try it out. After all ..

"@pgalberta yep the DotNetNuke community on Twitter is quite close-knit and always willing to lend a hand! #DNN" says Chris Busse

And that was a tweet I just happened to have come across while writing this blog post.

If you are still able to resist the pull, feel free to leave your thoughts in comment form on this blog post. We’ll be featuring all the reasons and stories from the community on our website in the coming days.

So get ready to send anyone who is pondering adopting DotNetNuke our way, because “Why DotNetNuke?” will be a well answered question in no time.

DNN it's a CMS with a simplest usability. You just need to download a skin to buy some dnn modules and you have a cheap and great web-site.

We use both DotNetNuke and Drupal, we have found that DotNetNuke is preferred by our clients in regards to ease of use, but Drupal is preferred for customers who want to run really big sites, lots of editors, lots of text content and many features.
