You may or may not be experiencing a problem with your DotNetNuke website after upgrading to version 05.06.02. There is a chance that following your upgrade, there will be folders missing from the image manager when you go to edit content, like shown in the image above. In some cases, ALL folders will be missing from the window. This doesn’t appear to be an all inclusive bug, but many of you either have or will see this issue on your site.
I cannot honestly tell you where the time has gone. I first embarked upon doing something about the Media Module as a team member in 2008. Unfortunately, for many reasons, the module never really was updated until last year. I was able to get a release out the door last June. Somehow, nearly a year has flown by since that release. Where did the time go?!! Well, I was able to put my head down a few times over the past few months, and I am very happy to say that I have another release nearly ready for the release tracker.
There should be a new release of the Media Module submitted to the release tracker by the end of the month. There are many really cool updates coming to this release, but I would very much like to remove a feature – that is, if it doesn’t have an adverse impact upon anyone that is currently using the module.
There was a twitter contest this morning to see if anyone could accurately guess who the keynote speaker would be at this years Day of DotNetNuke Orlando event. Originally, a DotNetNuke shirt was offered as a prize for the right guess. There were plenty of guesses, but no one hit the target. Next, the deal was sweetened with a DNN boomerang. Still, no one guessed the right person – but there certainly were plenty of entertaining guesses! Finally, the stakes were raised to include not just a DNN t-shirt and boomerang, but also a frisbee. At the time of this writing, the keynote speaker was not guessed, so no one gets the swag. That shouldn’t prevent you from knowing who the speaker is though!
The Widget Suite for DotNetNuke launched in late November of 2010 with a very simple purpose. I wanted to document a few of the widgets I had created for technical presentations, and make them easy for others to use. As with any other open source project that sees a little success, I had no idea how popular it would become – nowhere near as successful and DNN mind you – but unexpected just the same.
