What Comes with DNN?

DNN comes with a lot of modules out of the box. Here's a list (still work in progress) of what you can expect.

Page management

Page management (in the Content section in the persona bar) gives you an overview of all pages in your website. It is structured like a site tree, so you can easily see if a page has child pages. Furthermore, page management gives you access to kinds of feature you want. Some of the most used:

  • Disable a page
  • Set permissions (view/edit) to a certain role or individual)
  • Turn off indexing by search engines
  • Set the page as a link to another page or file
  • Add Title, description, meta tags
  • Define layout
  • Move or delete the page

Recycle bin

If you delete a page or a module and you think you shouldn't have...happens to the best of us. Thank DNN for the recycle bin (Content section in the Persona bar). You can easily choose a page, a module or a user and restore this. 

User management, roles & permissions

One of the great features of DNN! Of course, you can create users. And you can create roles. The great thing is that you can combine this with permissions to whatever you like. This allows you to create a page for your HR department and have them manage their own content. Or maybe a special section for your management team that only they can view. 

You can even take this one step further as the permissions can also be applied to a single module. This would allow you to grant your HR department edit rights to the job opening module on the homepage and not the entire homepage

You want more? We got more. Thanks to social groups (another module) you can create interactive pages for people within the same social role or security role. There are even vendors that have implemented this structure of roles & permissions to their modules. This allows you to grant edit right to a single line within a table of your database.

Digital asset management

Usually a cms has the abillity to upload pictures. The difference with the digital asset manager (DAM) is that DNN offers much more flexibility. 

  • You can create (sub)folders
  • You can upload any type of file that you want, provided that you don't want to upload a 'forbidden' extension although you could even allow those as well.
  • You can rename your files
  • You can set permissions on folders (only HR department or members of project X can view)
  • Download the file
  • Get the url
  • Create database folder or secure folder (by default when a file is uploaded, anyone with the link can view and these types of folders allow you to restrict that)
