DotNetNuke 7.0

DotNetNuke 7.0 Web CMS

My very early take on DNN 7 is that it looks SOLID.  The admin UI is updated, with some nice new features.

  • Customizable control panel with bookmarks to common functions
  • Ability to drag & drop module containers (in page edit mode)
  • Auto save built-in to the HTML editor
  • Overall improved performance
  • Mobile device redirection (responsive)

Things I'd still like to see:

Waiting for better URL rewriting -- without installing third party extensions.  Out-of-the-box page names are better than they used to be, but still room for optimization.

I'd also like to be able to search and install free extensions without leaving the UI (a la WordPress as an example).

Also, the Blog module (V5), is a bit erratic, this needs some fine-tuning to be a viable option.  It's close, but not quite there yet.

In Summary

When I have a tight deadline and need to turn up a Website ASAP, DNN is my "go to" CMS framework.  It's stable, scalable, and easy to use.
