Week 2 - Slashhack.net - DNN Conversion

Delayed and Still Delivered

Unfortunately the site I had planned for this week needs to be approved by Paypal so it will have to wait. It is all ready so hopefully that will be approved by next week.

Luckily, I was able to put together an install of DotNetNuke.  For those of you who don't know, DotNetNuke is a content management system. Once setup, this allows users to make content changes without having any knowledge of HTML or coding.  This is a great step in allowing me to develop sites which will be maintained by the business owners.

Just installing DNN, while not simple, didn't seem like an accomplishment worth a whole week so I also converted my business' website. This involved taking the site's markup and style and converting it to a DotNetNuke skin. The content of the site was then rebuilt in the content editor. I have archived the original site for comparison:

If you are interested in your own site in DNN or need site converted to a skin, feel free to contact me and we can make arrangements.  You might even get featured on OneWeekOneWebsite.com.  You can see the built-in example at example.oneweekonewebsite.com. You can also watch a video on how to edit content in DNN here.
