HASH(0xa13f4dbc) out of 5 stars Not an easy read Sept. 29 2005
By W. Bekker - Published on
Format: Paperback
I never worked with DNN before, so i needed a simple explanation on how to perform a basic installation and more importantly how to customize it so it matches my client design & functionality. I tried to read this book, especially the chapters about skinning and creating custom modules. I stopped reading early, because it was so badly written (yes, i write bad too, but you do not see me publish a book); no step for step explanations, no real world examples in the skinning chapter and most pages are just lists of API calls and other reference steps. I should have been warned by the introduction of mr. Walker: pages and pages of text about the history of DNN that screams for some professional editing: no headers, no pictures and the text could be reduced in half without any loss in information.

To summarize: this is not a step by step explanation of professional customizing DNN, it's just a badly written reference manual. DNN deserves better.

HASH(0xa13f4e10) out of 5 stars May be I expected too much June 23 2005
By Patrizio Palazzetti - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For administrators and ... administrators there is no better DNN book. Developers wait for another title. As a dotnetnuke follower since its IBuySpy Workshop branding and as .Net developer I expected more in the module development and new .Net technology application areas.

Yes, it has some chapters about module development and the DNN APIs but I bought this book to learn from DNN and be able to develop better modules. Not from this book.

HASH(0xa13f7108) out of 5 stars Comprehensive June 14 2005
By John Enrich - Published on
Format: Paperback
From reading this book you get a sense of completion. The first chapter provides a in-depth history of DNN and how it became the popular application it is, this is something that could only be written by the core team, it really provides some great insights into this application.

Subsequent chapters take you from installing DNN, all the way to developing against it. There is excellent coverage of the API, and four chapters on module development.

There may have been some points that could have gone deeper, but this is one book you'll actually want to read and have as a reference, it is just a unique perspective from the developers of DNN, rather than just a reference book.

HASH(0xa13f7624) out of 5 stars Definitive book for understanding DNN Sept. 3 2005
By Avinash R. Prasad - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had just started playing around with content management systems when I can across DNN. At first, the interface seemed slick and all seemed to be going great guns, even when I had not read any book or reviews of DNN. Ane then came the problems....some pages wouldn't get deleted...the DNN tree just didn't seem to work. That was when I bought the book and enjoyed every topic it covered. I was helped a lot by the ASP.Net forum, where all sorts of issues were discussed. Overall, a pleasant experience and would recomment this over the other VB.Net book for DNN.

HASH(0xa13f4ed0) out of 5 stars Not really for Developers Sept. 18 2006
By J. Herd - Published on
Format: Paperback
An interesting enough background history of DNN with a bit of technical information thrown in and put into context. But don't buy this book if you expect it to help you build your own modules.
