I've almost finished my first Umbraco project, which is probably the most awesome CMS I've ever seen. In case you've been under a rock (which, after having rooted around this thing, I am starting to feel like), Umbraco is a brilliant, ingenious, pure-XML-powered .NET CMS - sorry to say, but much better than DotNetNuke, and fully validates with XHTML ......

I'm about to set up a new website, powered by DotNetNuke (my favourite CMS at the moment, mainly because it's free), and I want to install a Counter-Strike game server onto the same machine. I also want a little module that will show visitors to my site how many people are logged onto the CS server and some basic stats. Sounds simple right? The problem ......

OK, I use the term "upgrade" a bit loosely here. There is no upgrade path from 32-bit to 64-bit versions of any edition of Windows, period. However, you can preserve your Active Directory domain, DNS settings, websites, files, whatever, through a slightly long-winded process and get from 32-bit to 64-bit without: Having to uninstall Active Directory ......

SO I finally took the plunge and upgraded to DotNetNuke 5.00.01 beta on my live website. Having create a staging site and then tested the upgrade in a protected environment, I discovered a few things had changed since version 4.9: Native jQuery support - YEEEESSS!!! A half-decent Javascript framework has been packed in - notice how the FancyZoom stuf ......

I came across an interesting problem on Friday (which is why I'm blogging about it on Sunday evening - I've been working to fix this problem over the weekend!), regarding pre-authenticated links for secured areas of ASP.NET websites. A very large and reputable client of our firm has an email sent out to them daily containing business-critical development ......

Don't get me wrong, it's a powerful language, but sometimes it just hacks me off. In case anyone is wondering where the rant is coming from, I'm trying to take two stored procedures and merge them. One gets a list, and the second gets child records of the first list. And trust me, it is more complicated than it sounds because of particular nuances in ......

As you may or may not be aware, I am a moderator on the Bytes Technology Forums, overseeing classic ASP forums but kicking around other areas like HTML/CSS, JavaScript/AJAX, SQL Server, Access, and .NET forums - basically a bit of a jack-of-all trades. Recently the mod team has been discussing a desktop assistant for drafting and composing posts from ......

Hi guys, Well, the portfolio page has changed a bit! I've added this really cool Javascript effect known as FancyZoom, and extended to work with Prototype and Scriptaculous. As an aside, DotNetNuke has native compatibility with two Javascript/AJAX frameworks - Project Atlas (or ASP.NET AJAX) and Prototype, but can't be made to work with any other frameworks ......
