It’s always kind of difficult to tell what modules will become popular when you create them. For the most part, I really don’t care because usually the modules I release to you and the rest of the DotNetNuke community are those that I built specifically for a specific need I had anyway. However, Content Slider module was meant to fulfill a need. There was a gap in the Forge. As a result, this module has had over 3,500 downloads in about 6 months. THANK YOU for enjoying this module so much!
I need to get back on track with having a blog post ready for each and every DotNetNuke module release I make. In this case, I definitely wanted to make it a point to have an update here in the blog. There have been 4 different releases of the Content Slider module since this module was first made available two months ago. As it turns out, there is a lot of demand for this module. After all, there have already been over a thousand downloads so far. Not bad for being in the wild for 8 weeks.
I was speaking with another member of the community about general DotNetNuke stuff, and the conversation turned to modules. It was mentioned that there wasn’t a single known open source module that offered the ability to integrate content sliders or banner rotators into your DNN website. There are of course a ton of ways to implement such a feature. Snowcovered has numerous modules that allow you to do this. So, I decided to create a nice and easy one for the Forge.
