Content Managers

Hello, Content Manager! Content managers within DNN are users who create, edit, and maintain content. Content comes in all shapes and sizes. It may be text, images, videos and any type you can imagine. Content can be managed within the HTML module, various structured content modules, the digital asset manager, and custom or third party modules.


Hello, Developer! DNN has an open API and many extension points. Developers can create custom DNN extensions using various development approaches. The content in this section will help you get started and learn more about DNN's extensibility model and applicable development patterns.


Hello, Designer! Designers can achieve any look and feel desired with DNN. The content in this section will help designers and front-end developers alike understand the process for creating themes (formerly referred to as "skins") within DNN. If you can design it in Photoshop you can create it with a DNN theme!
