DotNetNuke Modules–Under the hood UI and jQuery

We have been working to improve the UI of our dnn modules in recent times. This has included extensive updates to the backend administrator management. We have struggled for a long time to find a solution that actually works well for us and well for our clients. The problem has always been the fragmentation of web technologies and browsers. Browser brands, versions, libraries, server technologies, uptake of new technologies like Silverlight etc has all been issues for us. It’s one thing for us to develop a great solution, only to find that others struggle to have it implemented correctly. Silverlight is a classic example of this.

Office 2010 Add-ins not working

We have seen a few instances where an Office 2010 Add-in stops working  and cannot be enabled even is deleted and reinstalled. This can effect our DotNetNuke Module – Microsoft Word Editor, as it uses the Microsoft Office Add-in feature of office. The cause of the problem lays in Microsoft (again) that have decided to make Word (and other office Add-ins) mark a plugin as “Disabled” if it is ever involved in a slow response or crash. Good concept to stop plugins crashing word, but how they do it is so unobvious it catches many people out. The plugins are added to a “Disabled” basket, and will never again be activated unless moved from that… Read More »Office 2010 Add-ins not working
