 Modules Minimize

Modules are add-ons to the Content Management System (modular pieces of code) that each present some functionality to the user, like a personnel contacts list, events calendar, or a list of announcements. The DotNetNuke portal comes with a wide variety of modules, each designed to manage a common type of website or portal content.

Typically, several content modules are grouped on a page to create a web page.  Modules can be added, edited, deleted, restored, moved around on a page, or transfer to another page.

Besides the Core modules that are part of every default DotNetNuke installation, there is also a wide range of (non-core, non-commercial) free modules and enhancements to modules available from the websites of DotNetNuke community members

The third source of non-core modules (or add-ons to the CMS as you may call them) are the growing number of online  businesses who provide commercial modules for sale and .net programmers who offer custom module development.

 Skins & Containers Minimize
DNN Graphics
Skins are customized and interchangeable sets of graphics which allow administrators to easily change the look of their websites, without having to reorganize their content. In "skinning" a site, administrators can completely change the look of their portal without the need to reorganize content – all at the click of a button. A skin is the design applied to the standard DotNetNuke portal to change the layout and design. A skin package is a zip file that includes the HTML layout, images, and may also include a stylesheet. A skin package must be uploaded to your File Manager and can be globally added or removed on the Site Settings tab, or under the Tab Settings of each tab.


Designing a custom look and feel for a DotNetNuke portal requires changes to all or some of the key design elements, these being:

CSS Style Sheet
Body Background

 Language Packs Minimize
DotNetNuke is used internationally by web developers to quickly build professional web applications.  Given the International community that DNN serves, it is necessary to allow DNN to build systems that cater to the specific culture and language of both the hosting organization, and the individual end users/site visitors.  In some instances, these sites will serve a wide range of cultures and languages while other sites target a specific culture.

The goal of the DNN Localisation project  is to provide a set of know procedures to simplify creation of multilingual web sites. This will include a common API for Core DotNetNuke as well as 3rd party modules, standard procedures to add new languages, resource management, built-in support for translating resource files, etc.

The initial release of Multilingual Translations included only static translations by way of so called Language Packs. This means that the DotNetNuke framework will convert/translate static strings, but will not convert "dynamic content" (i.e. content stored in the database). The translated texts are loaded into the framework as a bundle of zipped files called the Language Pack.
The language packs are the result of the hard-work and dedication of developers around the globe. The list below is just an overview of Language Packs currently available on the web:
