DNN (DotNetNuke) is a free web application framework based on the ASP.NET platform.

With DotNetNuke, multiple portals with independent access permissions, individual design, languages and content can be created by a host and managed by the respective administrators.

There are numerous features and tools available to administrators and editors, such as:
– Modules – The system’s functional scope is implemented through modules that represent encapsulated applications.
– Skins – Enables individual structure of the pages while separating the content from its visual representation.
– Drag and drop – Containers and modules can be placed within pages with the mouse using drag-and-drop functionality.
– File management – Files can be uploaded to the portal and made available.
– Waste paper bin – Delete and restore deleted content, modules and pages.
– Event log – Overview of user logins and errors that occurred as well as critical actions.
– Language editor – Creation of translations.
– AJAX – Client callbacks simplify handling and can be integrated into your own modules (Microsoft AJAX and jQuery are integrated).

DotNetNuke can be individually adapted to the respective user requirements and has versatile interfaces that enable communication with other systems in the IT landscape.

In addition to the built-in login service, OpenID, LiveID, Cardspace and Active Directory can be used for authentication.

Secure communication via SSL is supported as standard and can be activated individually for each site. It is also possible to integrate other, self-developed authentication providers into the portal.

Collaboration with other frameworks:
– JavaScript Frameworks: DotNetNuke uses its own JavaScript framework in version 4, which was replaced by jQuery in version 5 – this is also because Microsoft preferred jQuery as a JavaScript framework at this time.[5]
– AJAX.Net The AJAX solution from Microsoft is supported, with an update panel being used automatically if necessary.
– CSS Frameworks: There is currently no specific framework recommended. YAML (YAML Website) is currently the only framework with support in the DotNetNuke community, partly because YAML also harmonizes with jQuery.
– Telerik Web Controls are delivered with DotNetNuke from version 5.2.
