DotNetNuke 5 USER’S GUIDE: Get Your Website Up and Running

3_0470462574_small July 30, 2009 – DotNetNuke (DNN) is a content management system ideal for creating and deploying projects such as commercial web sites, corporate intranets and extranets, and online publishing portals. The open-source package comes loaded with a set of built-in tools that provide powerful functionality including a weblog, banner advertising, links, search, news feeds (RSS), a calendar, account login, and more. DotNetNuke is able to create the most complex content management systems entirely with its built-in features, yet also allows administrators to work effectively with add-ons, third party assemblies, and custom tools. It’s the perfect package to build a website without worrying about the programming behind it, and DotNetNuke 5 USER’S GUIDE: GET YOUR WEBSITE UP AND RUNNING (Wrox, an imprint of Wiley Publishing; July 2009; $44.99) gives readers exactly what they need to get up and running. This book is an authoritative introduction to implementing DotNetNuke Web sites, written by an experienced and impressive group of DotNetNuke implementers and trainers.

Targeted to readers with no background in web development, the book begins with an introduction to the benefits of content management systems, open source, and the DotNetNuke Framework’s history and future. The first chapters of the book introduce readers to concepts in DotNetNuke like modules, pages, and skins to give the reader a reference point for DotNetNuke as a content management system. Next, the book covers the DotNetNuke installation process and options, basic administration functionality, and the content management fundamentals for all DotNetNuke sites. Following this strong foundation, the DotNetNuke 5 USER’S GUIDE gets into practical applications by walking through a variety of use cases, implementation strategies, and configuration decisions for the following site types:

• Personal website
• Team or club community
• Small business
• Enterprise solutions

Later chapters discuss the administration decisions applicable to the use case, and build upon each other as the complexity of the implementation will progress from case-to-case. The final chapters elaborate on various advanced topics relevant to all use cases.

For anyone that wants to build a robust website without worrying about the programming behind it, DotNetNuke 5 USER’S GUIDE is essential. It’s perfect for the entry-level web site builder looking to get started using DotNetNuke, or looking for a good platform to build their first website. The book provides readers with a practical application to start working in DotNetNuke.
