I was one of many, many people that opted to begin implementing the Advanced Control panel into my websites, offered by Oliver Hine. And why not? It was and continues to be a great alternative to the built-in control panel that is found in DotNetNuke. This true for me until version 6.0 of DNN was released.
There are many hidden gems in DotNetNuke 6.0 that you will find once you begin using it. You may have heard of some already. For example, there’s creating numerous pages all at once with the page manager, the mega menu, jQueryUI plugins, module categories, standardization around module messages, and more. There is another beauty hidden away in the new text editor provider too…
You may or may not know, but I just submitted the Media Module v04.01.00 to the release tracker. This version has it’s entire user interface (UI) updated to match the DotNetNuke v6.0 standards and form patterns, among other updates. It was definitely a learning experience, but a very fun one! One of the cool things I got to learn… Reusing the built-in message types!
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.
