DotNetNuKE Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: 10 DotNetNuke Admin Quick Tips

clock December 20, 2013 06:45 by author Robert

Here are 10 somewhat lesser known "quick tips” for DotNetNuke administrators described in no more than a sentence or two and implemented just as quickly.

 

 

  • Module Header & Footer Text
    Use the module header and footer text boxes (Module Settings > Advanced Settings) to inject short snippets of text and / or HTML above or below any given module. No need to drop additional text/html modules.
  • Registration Copy
    I still see way too many sites with the default copy of “Membership to this portal is Private / Public / Verified. …” Change it via the language editor at Admin > Languages > Global Resources > SharedResources.
  • Login / Register Links
    And while you have the language editor running, customize the anchor text of commonly used skin tokens such as Login, Register, Terms, and Privacy at Admin > Languages > Local Resources > Admin > Skins. Alternatively, most of these tokens support a “text” attribute for overriding the anchor text directly in skin.ascx:
    <dnn:login runat="server" id="dnnLOGIN" text="Sign in" />
  • Page Header Tags
    Tucked away in the advanced page settings is a field that allows you to specify additional meta tags on a page by page basis. For instance, to keep Google from archiving the page, enter <meta name="robots" content="noarchive">.
  • Installation Date
    Ever lost track of when you or your hosting provider installed DNN for your site? The “InstallationDate” key in the appSettings section of web.config will tell you.
  • Terms of Use & Privacy Statement
    The default terms and privacy notice are meant as a general guideline only. If you are running a “high profile” site, have the documents reviewed by a legal professional and edit accordingly via Admin > Languages > Global Resources > GlobalResources (message_portal_terms.text and message_portal_privacy.text.) Even if the default copy is sufficient for your needs, mask the email address in the last paragraph of the privacy statement to avoid spam.
  • Website Administrator
    You have entered a valid email address in your DNN profile and double-checked the SMTP server settings and still don’t receive admin notifications from DNN? In case of multiple users with admin rights, you need to set yourself as the site administrator at Admin > Site Settings > Advanced Settings > Other Settings.
  • Module Title
    The module title field accepts roughly 250 characters including HTML/CSS. That’s good enough for little tricks such as adding a small image, link or vary the font size of words in the module title. Just don’t overdo it.
  • Copyright
    Similar to the module title field, I often enter additional information such as contact details into the copyright field (Admin > Site Settings > Site Details), which then conveniently display in the footer of your pages or wherever else you placed the copyright skin token.
  • Module Installation Timeout
    As modules get more sophisticated and provide more features and functionality, the file size of private assemblies (PAs) naturally grows as well. This may lead to HTTP session timeouts when uploading PAs the conventional way (Host > Module Definitions > Install New Module). While there are means to increase the session length in web.config, I prefer to simply FTP upload the PA zip file into the Install\Module folder on the web server and then change the file extension from .zip to .resources. Subsequently, the module is listed in the Available Modules section of the Modules Definition page and installation can resume from there.

At least half of the above suggestions should be applicable to any DNN version, while the other half is geared more towards DNN 4 and above.

Free DotNetNuke 7.1 Hosting :: Switching over from Url Master to the Advanced URL functionality in DNN 7.1

clock December 12, 2013 06:34 by author Mike

If you are planning to start using the new Advanced URL functionality in DNN 7.1, and you have an existing license for the Url Master module, there is a conversion path. This converts all of the Url Master redirects, portal alias settings and configuration settings over to the DNN format. The Advanced functionality is heavily based on the Url Master codebase, but they are not exactly the same. Many changes have been made in order to properly integrate the product into the DNN Core.

Therefore, I suggest that people test the switch-over carefully, and make sure that they have checked that redirects, third-party modules, and all other URL-related functionality works correctly. I strongly recommend that people do this in a 'localhost' test environment if they have the capability. If not, you must take a backup immediately prior to doing the conversion and be prepared to revert to the backed-up version of the site if the tests do not pass.

This process applies both to the DNN Platform (formerly DotNetNuke Community Edition) and those who have upgraded DotNetNuke Professional Edition to Evoq Content.   While the DNN Platform has very few UI configuration locations for the Advanced URL Settings, the functionality is fully operational once the Url Master settings are converted.

Please note : you need to have a fully licensed version of Url Master in order to activate the conversion functionality, except if you are running on ‘localhost’, in which case it will work with an unlicensed version.

The actual process of conversion is very simple:

1. Upgrade your Url Master version to 2.8

2. Go to the Host->Friendly Url Settings page, and find the 'Convert to DNN Advanced Urls' button.

3.  This will load the Conversion Dialog:

Click 'Start Conversion' when you are ready to do the conversion.

4.  The conversion process will run, and then show a summary of the changes made:

image

The figures in the boxes apply to the entire DNN installation. Check through the numbers to do a 'sanity check' and make sure that the figures seem correct. You can then close the dialog – the conversion is complete and your site is now activated in DNN 'Advanced' mode. Note that because this requires a web.config change, the site will automatically restart when the process is complete.  The 'close' button triggers a page refresh to complete this process.

5. Check functionality on your site to make sure that the conversion has worked correctly. A brief set of tests should include:

  1. Basic site operation : all public URLs work as expected
  2. Edit Mode : does the Edit Mode functionality work as before?
  3. Any third-party module functionality : do blog posts, forum threads, e-commerce pages, photo galleries etc load up correctly?
  4. Login/Logoff functions : are you able to login and log out as normal?
  5. 404 Handling : if you had 404 handling configured, check that the 404 error handling works as expected.
  6. Admin/Host Urls : are you able to do basic functions like search for a user, save site settings, etc?
  7. Custom Urls : do custom redirects you had configured in Url Master still work OK?  Are any custom URLs showing for pages correctly?
  8. Site Alias redirects : does the site respond correctly in terms of alias redirects (like example.com –> www.example.com)
  9. User Profile pages : if you had vanity user profile URLs activated, do they still work correctly?  Are the profile pictures showing correctly, can users post updates, edit their profiles?

This is only a brief list to get you thinking; you should execute a comprehensive test plan to make sure the site is working as expected.  Your SEO depends on making sure there are no surprises and everything is working as before. In the vast majority of cases, there should be no difference in behaviour or functionality, but it is imperative that this be tested and confirmed. While I have tested this functionality to make sure a like-for-like conversion of settings is working as expected, it is impossible to test the entire universe of Url Master installations.

6.  When the conversion is finished, it’s up to you whether or not you uninstall the Url Master module. You may wish to keep it installed as a backup for the short term in case you find a problem with the conversion process. You can run the conversion process as many times as you like – it has been designed to be run repeatedly without causing any issue, to allow for iterative checks. Each time it is run, the settings are taken from the Url Master configuration and applied to the DNN install – thus any changes in the DNN installation may be overwritten each time you do this.

Anyone using Custom Module Providers for the Url Master module – the settings specific to Custom Module Providers are not converted during this process.  Any Custom Module providers will have to be replaced like-for-like with a DNN 7.1 specific Extension Url Provider which provides the same functionality, and the settings specific to that provider will have to be carried across.

Free, Best and Reliable Entity Framework 6 Hosting with ASPHostPortal.com

clock December 11, 2013 06:03 by author William

Entity Framework is actively developed by the Entity Framework team which is assigned to the Microsoft Open Tech Hub and in collaboration with a community of open source developers. Together we are dedicated to creating the best possible data access experience for .NET developers.
The Entity Framework version 6 Release Candidate is now available to developers for immediate download. The open source object-relational mapper is designed to enable .NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects. Entity Framework allows programmers to create a model by writing code or using boxes and lines in the EF Designer. Both of these approaches can be used to target an existing database or create a new database.

There are The Top features of Entity Framework 6 :

  • Connection Resiliency - enables automatic recovery from transient connection failures.
  • Async Query and Save - dds support for the task-based asynchronous patterns that were introduced in .NET 4.5. With .NET 4.5 Microsoft introduced async and await keywords but in EF 5 Microsoft didn't have time to add support for async query and save but now with EF6 it is supported.
  • Code-Based Configuration - gives you the option of performing configuration - that was traditionally performed in a config file - in code.
  • Dependency Resolution - introduces support for the Service Locator pattern and we’ve factored out some pieces of functionality that can be replaced with custom implementations.
  • Interception/SQL logging - provides low-level building blocks for interception of EF operations with simple SQL logging built on top.
  • Testability improvements - make it easier to create test doubles for DbContext and DbSet.
  • Features that come for free - These are capabilities that are part of the core. You don’t even have to know they’re there to benefit from them, much less learn any new coding. This group includes features such as performance gains brought by a rewritten view-generation engine and query compilation modifications, stability granted by the ability of DbContext to use an already open connection, and a changed database setting for SQL Server databases created by Entity Framework.
  • DbContext can now be created with a DbConnection that is already opened - which enables scenarios where it would be helpful if the connection could be open when creating the context (such as sharing a connection between components where you can not guarantee the state of the connection).

Top Reasons To Choose Entity Framework 6 Hosting

  • Fast and Secure Server - Our powerfull servers are especially optimized and ensure the best Entity Framework 6 performance. We have best data centers on three continent, unique account isolation for security, and 24/7 proactive uptime monitoring.
