Media Module Version 04.02.00 Released

DotNetNuke Media Module

The next version of the Media Module for DotNetNuke is once again here!  In previous releases, ground-breaking features like oEmbed were added.  In future releases, expect to see mobile rendering and HTML5 to be in the mix.  Today, there were a handful of things that needed to be taken care of before taking this module to the next level.

Media Module Version 04.01.00 Released

It’s once again been a while, but this version of the Media Module for DotNetNuke has been sitting in the hopper for a while.  Since before DNN 6.0 was released!  As of this moment, I am proud to say that the next version of the Media Module is available to you in the form of version 04.01.00.

The DotNetNuke Media Module is Relevant Again!

DotNetNuke Media Module

I knew the challenges when I first took over the Media Module.  In it’s first series of releases, it was built to make it easy to simply add an image on a page in DotNetNuke.  Eventually, it was extended to also allow you to display videos in nearly the same way.  Unfortunately, for many end-users, it’s just as easy to simply add the requisite HTML code to the Text/HTML Module to display all of the media types that the module was supporting (depending on the user, of course).

DotNetNuke Media Module 04.00.00 Alpha Release

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.

Media Module: Do You Use the Media Alignment Setting?

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.
