Site Blog is Being Removed Until Further Notice - Sunday, December 29, 2013


  As there is not an active moderator for the group at the moment and due to some fallacies when the Blog was initially created, the Blog currently on the site is being retired and removed entirely from the site.  If/When the group is made active again this will be updated along with the rest of the page and content.   This is being done as I've received numerous e-mails that spam bots are spamming the blog with comments for SEO and actually hurting other site performance.  Rather than have to comb through all the comments to pull them Out it is easier to simply retire the blog as the majority of the comments are all of this nature.

NEW SPONSOR!!! Pluralsight - Thursday, September 20, 2012

I would like to welcome Pluralsight to our list of sponsors for providing access to their treasure-trove of training resources.  We will be giving away complimentary subscriptions to tonight's attendees!



September meeting announcement - Friday, September 07, 2012

Summer is over and so is your break!  The Central Ohio DNN User Group is back in action and our next meeting will be September 20th, 6:00 again at Platform Lab.  This meeting comes right before DotNetNuke World, and in case you can't make that you definitely should come to the meeting as we'll be covering some of the same things that the DNN World presenters will.  And as always, if you have questions on how to accomplish something with DNN, the group has several members who are extremely knowledgeable and willing to share information and ideas.

If you have found the user group beneficial in the past, please continue your support by attending the meetings.  If you haven't gotten anything out of the meetings in the past, the group is what you make of it!!!  Whether you can or can't come, please invite anyone you know that works with DNN (or any other CMS for that matter) and by all means please communicate with me if you have ideas on how to improve the user group meetings.  If attendance continues to wane we will have no choice but to cancel the group meetings as it is unfair to our sponsors (and poor attendance limits the companies that will extend sponsorship).

Thank You to Platform Lab for again being our location sponsor!  Pizza and refreshments will be provided.

Check Out Artisteer Automated Web Designer (Skin Engine) - Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Everyone should take a moment and go over to and check out their Automated Web Designer tool.  In their Trial Edition you have the ability to create skin designs and export them.  I'm finding it to be a very useful tool.  Still more testing to be done.  But it is definately worth a review by other users.



VERY COOL! Bugs Reported... Recognized.. Now Fixed in 6.2.1252 Branch of Code - Monday, April 23, 2012

Thank you to everyone in the usergrouup first of all.  Had I not started this UG endeavor, I would not have gotten actively re-involved in the community scene likely.  Some time ago I submitted a few bugs uncovered in DNN 6.2.  Below are the links for the bug track reports.  I just received e-mail confirmation today that both of these have been fixed, in an upcoming branch of the DNN 6.2 code.  Now that's just awesome to see that kind of result!


Without the work I'm doing for all of us though I likely wouldn't have seen it, and who knows if it would have been reported. 


Here are the bug reports:
