The decision was made at work to start moving content to a Content Management Systems. IT wants to move to mostly Microsoft products, so we chose DotNetNuke as the CMS platform.
Anyway, DNN 4.5 seems to be a nice release. Much easier to install and I think I’m getting the hang of it. Thanks to Microsoft’s lack of standards support, a total CSS layout is out of the question. DNN likes to drop and add columns depending on where you’re at in the system and it requires a full page for the Inline Editor.
I did manage to generate a nice layout using a one row, three column table to hold my layout divs. This allows DNN to drop and add the columns without messing the formatting up.
This site has also be a great resource for skinning (creating a theme) for DotNetNuke. The Dreamweaver extension is also nice and gives you easy access to all the necessary placeholders for DNN content.
