We’ve just gotten done with the October episode of DNNHangout – this time featuring longtime DNN community member and skin designer, Tracy Wittenkeller. You may or may not have heard of Tracy, but he’s the man behind the team that brings you T-Worx and DNN Magazine. Chance are that you’ve already used or purchase one of his skins at some point. Tracy walks us through some new and exciting techniques that his company is applying to their new skins to help use contemporary design techniques, while at the same time making the content editing experience accessible to the average content editor. From what we could see, he’s taken this a long way to fill in that gap and by using a lot of existing DNN features!
I don’t know if you deal with as many websites as I do, but I’ve been dealing with other peoples DNN sites since I first began dabbling with it over a decade ago. (Boy, does that make me feel old!) Restoring the website from someone else’s environment to test, troubleshoot, and fix an issue isn’t a major issue as long as you have some experience with IIS, SQL Server, and Windows. However, the testing you need to do often requires access to multiple accounts. This is the problem. Duplicating those accounts is either non-trivial, or time consuming. So why not just reset all of their passwords?
