DotNetNuke® Web Application Framework Michael Washington http:// www.ADefwebserver.com [email_address] Socaldug.org – Buena Park, CA - 2007 Creating A DotNetNuke Module using ASP.NET AJAX & Creating DotNetNuke Web Services
DotNetNuke is a framework. You implement this framework by extending it's classes and implementing it's interfaces. One way to do this is by creating modules.
For most DotNetNuke is a solution because they use modules that already extend the classes and implement the interfaces. However, in those instances where you are unable to find an existing module that provides the functionality you desire, you can easily create your own modules.
Essentially, a DotNetNuke module is a collection of user controls that are configured to work together. These user controls inherit from either PortalModuleBase or PortalSettingsBase.
The DotNetNuke password is never displayed on any page or transmitted over the network.
The encrypted password changes each time the page is accessed so a page will contain a password that has either been changed, expired, or due to expire soon (the last username / encrypted password combination expires after 1 hour. This can be set to a lower number for greater security).
