We had a situation that clearly shows the use of the DotNetNuke Advanced Login Custom Script template, and how it can be used to deliver expected results. The client wanted to use a custom search function that enabled search, twitter and Facebook into the top area of their skin. The issue was, that when the this would cause some errors with the way that the search would display on top of the Advanced Login Module slide down effect that was set to run on the site. The solution to this turned out to be a great example of how the “Custom Script” option from within the module, can be used to deliver a custom experience that takes into account other custom features of the skin or site. So in this case we needed to move the Search, twitter, and Facebook information into the same layer as the slide down effect.… Read More »Custom jQuery Script–Advanced Login

If you are using our DotNetNuke Login Module the Advanced Login Module, or any other DNN login module, you may find that after you set the DNN Admin settings page to use a new page as the “Login” page. You receive an error that looks like this: A critical error has occurred. You have been redirected to this default Login Page because the Login Page set for this website does not contain a valid DotNetNuke Account Login module, or the permissions have not been set correctly. This is caused by some behaviour in DotNetNuke that is programmed in for good reason, although it is a pain for us.
