Mushroom Lite Module for DotNetNuke

Mushroom Lite Module for DotNetNuke is a module developed to bring rich content in an RSS feed directly into your DNN website. We created the module to fill a particular need we have that would allow us to bring a WordPress blog to DNN, but it could be any sort of blog, or any RSS feed with images and text. An Example Our blog is at: We use WordPress to power the blog, because it is extremely powerful as blog technology, and far superior to many other blog technologies available. The blog allows RSS feeds of almost every item listing, either by cloud tag, or category. It is one of the powerful features of WordPress. If you click on a Category such as iPhone, you receive this web view: and if you add /feed/ to the end of that URL, you will be given the same content in… Read More »Mushroom Lite Module for DotNetNuke

Description Field Templates for Picasa–Desc

Google Picasa has the ability to enter a description for an image. That description text is usually an explanation of what the image is about. We have the ability to access this description text of images using the token: ${item.description} within the template. To make this easy, we have added a second template to the templates within this module, using the same name but with “Desc” in the name. Where The – Dec versions of the templates like the Light box-Desc will display the description text. The templates remain editable as usual, to those of you who are skilled with HTML, CSS etc. We just thought it would be best to include these templates to simplify the process.

Loading Template Settings–Mushroom Image

Loading Templates These templates are used for the loading effect in the website while the module loads content. This is only used while the module pulls down source content, and if the source is cached, you will not see the loading template effect. Images If you examine the source view of the loading template, you will notice that the effect references a .gif file. This file is a motion .gif and can be swapped out for any loading .gif image you like.

Display Template Setting–Mushroom Image

Display Templates This is where you pick how your images will be shown on the page. The display templates define the end user look and feel.

Image Source This is the source that the module will connect to to pull images from. You can use Flickr, RSS, or Local Folder. Flickr – Will pull images directly from a Flickr Image Set e.g. RSS – Will pull the first image from each unique post in an RSS source. e.g. Local Folder – Will use images with a selected folder to display as images. This folder must be part of your DotNetNuke website. Google Picasa – Will pull images from a Google Picasa source, using the images in the module. Filter You can define the image types to be used in the module. For example if you pointed the Image source at a local folder that had a mixture of image types in it, then the Filter can be used to only use one type “.jpg” for example.

DotNetNuke Modules with a difference (Silverlight and CRM)

We have recently finished development of a rather special DNN module. What makes this particular DotNetNuke module different from the 23 existing publically released DotNetNuke Modules is the fact that this is heavily dependent on Silverlight and is integrating directly to Microsoft CRM from DotNetNuke to provide membership services. We have done and continue to do advanced Silverlight developments into DotNetNuke Modules, having developed products like Silerlight Media Player, and Silverlight Video Library. This latest dnn module however is really something that we are proud of. Known as the Agfarm Membership Module the module functions in the following way: 1. Simple design interface, as was our clients instructions, but easy and clean to use with the Silverlgiht.
