DnnC Minimalist


A free open source responsive skin\theme for Dnn (DotNetNuke) using Bootstrap3.

Warning : Install on Dnn 08.00.00

There is a small bug in this version of Dnn that will stop the menu showing. To solve this is quite easy to do by following theses steps below:

Go to '/Portals/' folder of your Dnn install In this folder you will find a file called 'web.config' Open this file and search for the following 3 lines of html

<host factoryType="System.Web.Mvc.MvcWebRazorHostFactory, System.Web.Mvc"/>

<add namespace="DotNetNuke.Web.Mvc.Helpers"/>
<add namespace="Dnn.Modules.DynamicContentViewer.Helpers"/>

Change the lines above to this:

<!--<host factoryType="System.Web.Mvc.MvcWebRazorHostFactory, System.Web.Mvc"/>-->

<!--<add namespace="DotNetNuke.Web.Mvc.Helpers"/>-->
<!--<add namespace="Dnn.Modules.DynamicContentViewer.Helpers"/>-->

Save the file and the menu's should display correctly.

Theme Requirements & installation

Install the skin as you would with any other Dnn extension by going to the Host > Extensions page (you should not install via Admin/Extensions). The Dnn Minimalist theme was created for Dnn8 and upwards.

To install follow the steps below:

  1. Download and un-block the zip file from here.
  2. Go to Host –> Extensions –> Install Extension wizard to install the Minimalist skin pack.
  3. After the installation has been completed, navigate to Admin –> Site Settings –> Basic Settings (tab) –> Appearance (section) and specify portal and edit skins and containers.
