DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Simple Trick CSS Image Replacement in DNN

clock January 31, 2017 10:24 by author Dan

According to DNNgallery website. I've used quite a few image replacement techniques in web design in the past to create better typography for the web. But recently I've ran into a technique improved by Scott Kellum that proved to be effective as well as enhancing the performance of the site.

If you're a web designer, you've probably heard of Fahrner Image Replacement technique. It's essentially using CSS text-indent property and set it to a very larger negative number such as -9999px so the text isn't visible to users.

The technique is known for having a performance drawback since the browser has to draw the screen out to the measurement defined in the CSS. Jeff Zeldman recently published an improved technique in his post about this fix based on Scott Kellum's refactor code as follows:

.hide-text {
         text-indent: 100%;
         white-space: nowrap;
         overflow: hidden; }


So use this in your next web design project to eliminate performance drawback in the CSS.

DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How To Restore Database Scema on DNN

clock January 26, 2017 04:54 by author Armend

Dotnetnuke standard installs using the dbo as the default user. Some hosts however, like shared hosting service providers, do not allow you to use dbo. So in this case you have to install Dotnetnuke using your assigned username. This should work without any problems. But in case you have an existing website which was installed using the dbo user and you would like to migrate it to a hosting provider that does not allow dbo you have a problem.

The easiest way to migrate a Dotnetnuke website is by backing up the entire web and the database and restore it to the new environment. This will work fine only if your new environment allows dbo. If it does not you will find that when restoring the database all objects will have been assigned to your username and not to dbo and your web will not run.

To resolve this issue you can follow the steps outlined below after which your web will run without any problems. As this procedure requires changes to the databse please be sure to have a backup of your database and website. Note: This procedure is for a SQL server 2005 database!

Step 1:
Open your web.config file and look for "owner". Change the owner from dbo to your database username.
Open your web.config file and look for "owner". Change the owner from dbo to your database username.

Step 2:

In Microsoft SQL Server management studio select all stored procedures that DO NOT have aspnet in their name, rightclick and select "script as create to new query editor window".

This will create a script for all the selected stored procedures.

Step 3:
Where it says "new owner" below you should change it for your database username!
Where it says "new owner" below you should change it for your database username!

  • In the just created script search and replace "create procedure" with "alter procedure"
  • Search and replace "create procedure" with "alter procedure" (Note! with 2 spaces!)
  • Search and replace "[dbo]" with "[new owner]"
  • Search and replace "dbo." with "new owner."
  • Execute the script

Step 4:
In Microsoft SQL Server management studio select all stored views that DO NOT have aspnet in their name, rightclick and select "script as create to new query editor window".
In Microsoft SQL Server management studio select all stored views that DO NOT have aspnet in their name, rightclick and select "script as create to new query editor window".

Step 5:

  • Search and replace "[dbo]" with "[new owner]"
  • Search and replace "dbo." with "new owner."
  • Search and replace "create view" with "alter view"
  • Search and replace "new owner.GetListParentKey" width "dbo.GetListParentKey"
  • Execute the script

Step 6:

  • Go to "functions" "Scalar-valued functions"
  • rightclick and select "script as create to new query editor window" for function "fn_GetVersion"
  • Search and replace "dbo." with "new owner." (including the "."!)

DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Simple Steps to Add Text in DNN Search Box

clock January 24, 2017 07:45 by author Dan

According to mndnn website. While trolling around the DNN forums, I found a post by someone looking to add the text "Search" to the DNN Search box. I've done this several times, and I use a javascript snippet. For those that are looking for something similar, see below.
 
$(document).ready(function() {
 $('#dnn_dnnSEARCH_txtSearch').val('Search Our Site'); //add the search text to the search input
    $("#dnn_dnnSEARCH_txtSearch").focus(function () { //clear the default text out of the search input
        if ($(this).val() == "Search Our Site") {
            $(this).val('');
        }
    });
});


This will add the text "Search Our Site" to the search box. When the user clicks on the box, the text is erased.

The best place to add this is in your skin files. Make sure you are using jQuery.

DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Create Different Level Navigation in DNN

clock January 17, 2017 15:00 by author Dan

According to mndnn website, If you ever need to dynamically output two different levels of menu in the same skin, read below. In some cases you may need a primary or secondary page to show it’s children and the child page to show it’s siblings.

You can do that in the same skin. This example uses the DNN Garden menu, but it could be any provider where the levels are specified

<div id="side-nav">

<%  If PortalSettings.ActiveTab.Level < 1 Then%>

<ddr:MENU ID=”MENU2″ MenuStyle=”ULMenu” runat=”server” NodeSelector=’0,0,1′ ExcludeNodes=”Admin, Host” />

<% Else%>

<ddr:MENU ID=”MENU3″ MenuStyle=”ULMenu” runat=”server” NodeSelector=’-1,0,2′ ExcludeNodes=”Admin, Host” />

<% End If%>

</div>


Now I can use the same skin for two levels of hierarchy. Using DNN Garden, the node selector determines the depth of the menu.

Now on my primary pages, I can show the children. On the child pages, I can show it's siblings.

DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How To Develop Web Service in DNN

clock January 12, 2017 04:49 by author Armend

I have recently been assigned to built a DotNetNuke web service to permit a windows application (or any sort of net client for instance) the flexibility to control DotNetNuke person accounts (create, change roles, delete, retrieve e mail address, and so forth.).

Since I had a tough time locating an accurate code sample or documentation that really applies to DotNetNuke and accessing it without having being earlier logged in to DotNetNuke, it absolutely was difficult to constructed anything at all. I ultimately found out how to do it properly so I hard I would put my attempts to some use and write a blog publish explaining how you can get it done step by stage.

 


That said, let's begin by the fundamentals and just create a publicly available web services that permits anybody to ping the net service and acquire a pong again. For that we are going to use the new DotNetNuke 7 Providers Framework which makes it fairly simple should you know how to utilize it.

In order to create a net support that will work within DotNetNuke 7, you will need to fireplace up Visual Studio and create a class Library project (c# or VB but all illustrations listed here will be in c#).

That done, we will then reference some needed DotNetNuke 7 required libraries (making use of the Add Reference dialog box), here's the list:

DotNetNuke.dll
DotNetNuke.Web.dll
System.Net.Http.dll
System.Net.Http.Formatting.dll
System.Web.Http.dll

Then we also need to reference the System.Web class from the .NET tab of the same dialog box.

Finally, we neet to set the output path of the project to the DotNetNuke bin directory and we are ready to code.

Here is the code, the explanations follow:

using System.Net;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Web.Http;
using DotNetNuke.Web.Api;
 
namespace MyService
{
    public class PingController : DnnApiController
    {
        [AllowAnonymous]
        [HttpGet]
        public HttpResponseMessage PublicPing()
        {
            return Request.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK, "Pong!");
        }
    }
 
    public class RouteMapper : IServiceRouteMapper
    {
        public void RegisterRoutes(IMapRoute mapRouteManager)
        {
            mapRouteManager.MapHttpRoute("MyService", "default", "{controller}/{action}", new[]{"MyService"});
        }
    }
}

  1. We merely start with some using statements for our needs as demonstrated previously mentioned
  2. We develop a namespace for our service and no matter what name we use listed here will be part of the url. I utilized MyService just for this instance but use any name which makes perception for your services.
  3. Now we create a public class for our controller. You'll be able to create numerous controllers if you want to and the controller is just a bunch of related actions that make feeling to group with each other. In my genuine project I have a PingController for testing functions, a UsersController for almost any steps that relate to user accounts and so forth. Just utilize a identify that makes feeling because it will even present up in the url. Two things for being careful right here:

    • The identify of one's controller should end using the term Controller but only what will come just before it will show inside the url, so for PingController, only Ping will show in the url route.
    • It should inherit DnnApiController so it'll use the DotNetNuke Providers Framework.
  4. Then we create the actual motion, inside our case, PublicPing. It's just a straightforward technique which return an HttpResponseMessage and may have a handful of characteristics. By default the brand new providers framework will respond only to host consumers and you also must explicitly enable other access rights if necessary, in this case the [AllowAnonymous] helps make this technique (or action if you prefer) obtainable to anyone with out credentials. The next attribute, [HttpGet] can make this action reply to HTTP GET verb, which can be usually used when requesting some date in the web server.
  5. Finally in that action, you insert whatever code you action needs to do, in this case just return the string "Pong!", just remember that you should return an HttpResponseMessage rather than a string or int or other item.

Ok so our controller and motion is done, now we just need to map that to an actual URL and that exactly what the final portion of the earlier code does. In essence this code tells DotNetNuke to map a specific url pattern for the techniques outlined in your course. You can use that code as is simply replacing MyService by no matter what your support title is.

Testing:
That is all there is certainly to it, your services is prepared! To test it, first compile it, then just navigate to http://yourdomain/DesktopModules/MyService/API/Ping/PublicPing and you should see "Pong!" inside your browser like a response.

Passing parameters

Ok, so the basic code above is working but it doesn't do anything useful. Lets add something more useful by creating an action that will give us the email address for a specific user id.

Again, here's the code and the explanations will follow (place the code inside the same namespace as the previous one):

public class UsersController : DnnApiController
    {
        [RequireHost]
        [HttpGet]
        public HttpResponseMessage GetEmail(int userid)
        {
            DotNetNuke.Entities.Users.UserInfo ui;
            ui = DotNetNuke.Entities.Users.UserController.GetUserById(PortalSettings.PortalId, userid);
            return Request.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK, ui.Email);
        }
    }


Initial we build a UsersController course which will hold all actions related to person accounts, it isn't completely required, you'll be able to have numerous steps within the same controller, nonetheless because this motion is not in any respect connected to our PingController, let'a create a new one more descriptive.

We then create a GetEmail motion (method) which will accept a userid parameter. The [RequireHost] parameter listed here will make it accessible only to host customers, we are going to see afterwards other authentication options.

The code inside the approach alone is fairly significantly self explanatory. The only interesting factor to notice listed here is the fact that because our course inherits DnnApiController, we already have a PortalSettings item obtainable. That is the big benefit of producing use of the DotNetNuke Solutions Framework. You'll have a ModuleInfo object to represent your module (if there is 1 using the identical identify as your support, which can be not essential such on this scenario), a PortalSettings object that signifies the portal at the domain title utilized to accessibility the support (portal alias) and at last a UserInfo item symbolizing the person that accessed the web services.

Testing:

If we now navigate to http://yourdomain/MyService/API/Users/GetEmail?userid=2 you need to receive the email tackle back again from the server unless of course obviously that userid does not exist, ensure that you check having a userid that truly exists for that portal. Should you exactly where not formerly linked having a host account, you then will probably be requested for qualifications.

Limiting access to particular roles

Alright, that actually works however, you need to give host qualifications to anyone needing to make use of your webservice. To avoid which you can change [RequireHost] by [DnnAuthorize(StaticRoles="Administrators")] which can limit access to administrators. Much better however, you nevertheless must provide them with an admin account. So the easy method to give only constrained entry would be to create a brand new role in DotNetNuke only for your internet services and substitute Administrators by that specific function title within the authentication parameter.

Utilizing HttpPost : (reply to a comment down bellow)

To answer Massod comment bellow, it's nearly exactly the same thing however, you have to develop an object to contain the posted information.

Let's make a easy ping that makes use of Submit, very first we need to create an object which will contain the posted info this sort of as:

public class FormMessage
    {
        public string Message { get; set; }
    }

Then we create the service method something like this:

 

public class PingController : DnnApiController
   {
       [AllowAnonymous]
       [HttpPost]
       public HttpResponseMessage PostPing(FormMessage formMessage)
       {
           return Request.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK, "Pong from POST: message was '" + formMessage.Message + "'.");
       }
   }

note that normally, a post would only return ok and no message, I am just doing this so we can test here.

Now since this is a POST verb, we can't test it by only using url parameters, we need to make an html file with a form to test it out. It would be someting like this:

http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head>
    <title>Untitled Pagetitle>
head>
<body>
    <form action="http://dnndev/DesktopModules/MyService/API/Ping/PostPing" method="POST">
        <label for="message">Message: label><input type="text" name="Message"/>
        <input type="submit" value="Submit"/>
    form>
body>
html>

The crucial thing to not right here is you can not just develop your Publish technique taking a string even when this can be only what you require, you do must create an object which will get your parameters.

Also never overlook that this is only for tests, you usually do not need to make this publicly accessible, you'd probably usually use yet another parameter than [AllowAnonymous] such as [DnnModuleAuthorize(AccessLevel = SecurityAccessLevel.View)] and [ValidateAntiForgeryToken] unless you truly want that for being public.

DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Optimization SEO in DotNetNuke

clock January 5, 2017 04:58 by author Armend

DotNetNuke has many SEO features, but some are less obvious to the casual administrator. These SEO features, however, can have a dramatic effect on how your DNN website is indexed by Google, Bing and others, and as such, can have an effect on your page rank and search results.

 

Here are a few DNN tips and tricks to help in your DNN’s SEO:

1. Site Map Priority

Buried within your page settings is a feature that allows you to set indexing priorities to your DNN pages. To get there (once logged in as an administrator), go to “page settings”, then “advanced settings”, then at the bottom of the window, go to “other settings”.

Here you will find the item: “Site Map Priority”. The default for this is .5. However, if your page is the home page, or perhaps a landing page, you will want to up the number to 1.0, or .9 (1.0 being the highest). This will increase the perceived importance of the page by search engines such as Google. Where is this relevant? When your organization appears in a Google search, high priority pages may be presented as sub-links to the home page more frequently. This can be critical in immediately directing visitors to key pages in an organic search result.

2. Site Settings

Here we’ll talk about one of things NOT to do when it comes to SEO in DotNetNuke. In the “site settings” of DotNetNuke, administrators have the ability to enter descriptions and keywords. By doing that, those items will then be placed in the META tags for EVERY page on the DNN website. For SEO, this is an extreme no-no, as it will confuse the search engines and reduce the relevancy and page rank of your overall DNN website. It may be an easy way to get keywords throughout your site… but it will definitely hurt you in the long run!

3. Page Titles

One of the nice features about DotNetNuke is its ability to add dashes between spaced words in your page title. For example, if you title a page “DNN SEO Tips”, DNN will title the actual URL as “DNN-SEO-Tips”. This ensures that the individual words in the title will be relevant to Google.
Some administrators like to use underscores between words. For example: “DNN_SEO_Tips”. This is strongly discouraged as Google will index the entire string as one item. This means people searching for DNN, or SEO or Tips will not see your site on Google. They would only find you if they specifically put “DNN SEO Tips”. In some cases this may be a good thing, if your content is very niche-oriented. But if you’re looking to gather visitors based on more broad searches, using underscores will hurt you.

4. Robots.txt

OK, this one gets a bit technical for the casual DotNetNuke administrator, but robots.txt is an important factor when comes to SEO, so what we’ll do in this section is give you enough information that you can intelligently go to your IT person or your hosting provider to ask questions.

In short, the robots.txt function (which not accessible via the administration tools in DNN), tells various search engines such as Google what pages to index and what pages they should not. Pretty important! But, if your DNN website is with a host provider and you are operating on a shared instance (one installation of DNN with many portals), you may be operating on one, centralized robots.txt file, which may be configured to tell the robots to ignore all pages on your site!

There is a way to take control and get around this, but it takes someone with access to the server and a bit of IT knowledge. But, don’t let that stop you from finding out if your robots.txt file is configured properly.

  • Ask your IT or host provider:
  • Is your DNN website on a shared instance?
  • Do you have an individual robots.txt file for your specific DNN website?

That’s it a few simple tools and information on how to squeeze more effectiveness with your DotNetNuke’s SEO. Hope useful.
