    Hi there

    The one thing that bugs me about DNN 8 is the lack of simple things like an image module. In WordPress, you can drop a simple image module, select the image from the gallery, and the module just automatically handles displaying the image based on the bootstrap. Today, with my old DNN 8 website (as far as I can tell), I have to drop the image into a HTML module and work around that to resize the image to 100% width.

    Anyone has a simple image module to recommend for DNN 8? Thanks.

      2SXC or OpenContent are the most widely used for simple content, like images or image with text or...

        I concur with Tycho's recommendations. DNN 9.6.1 with2sxc 11.2.0 is the say to go.

        That said, using the HTML module, add a class to the image when you include it, and put the appropriate styles in portal.css.

        The advantage to 2sxc is that you can also use the included image handler to optimize the image and style it.
