SoFried September Meeting - URL Redirects + What's Next with nvQuickSite + DNN Corp Webinar Post-Game

SoFried September Meeting - URL Redirects + What's Next with nvQuickSite + DNN Corp Webinar Post-Game
URL Redirects We all have the need for URL redirections whether we recognize it or not. Perhaps we need shorter, more easily memorable, URL’s or maybe we’ve gone through a site migration and need to implement redirects to maintain existing SEO results. Regardless of the scenario, we all leverage the ability to redirect URLs. In this session Ryan Moore of Moore Creative Company will lead a discussion around URL redirects and DNN. He will discuss and review DNN modules and tools used to handle redirects in different ways along with discussing real world scenarios they’ve encountered in the past. If you’ve ever wondered about what’s possible with URL redirection in DNN then this is the meeting to attend. What’s Next With nvQuickSite? Have you ever had to install DNN? Did you do it with nvQuickSite? If you didn’t then you may have taken longer than needed. nvQuickSite is a great tool for installing DNN created by our very own David Poindexter of nvisionative. The DNN Community loves nvQuickSite and uses it all the time to help make installing DNN more efficient. In this brief session David is going to lead the discussion and give us a preview of what’s just around the corner for nvQuickSite. We are excited to hear and see what’s on the roadmap for nvQuickSite.

SoFried June Meeting - DNN Admin Platform with DNNSharp & Persona Bar Develompent with Scott Wilkinson
Bogdan Litescu of DNN Sharp introduced us to their new product release, the DNN Admin platform. Bogdan described the tool which helps admin perform bulk management of multi-portal instances remotely, "Currently, most [people's manual] effort has been put into deploying updates - that is extensions, pages, entire portals or even parts of a portal. The solution is designed to be simple (so the person making deployments doesn't have to be a DNN guru) and scale from 1 to 10,000 portals with the support of bulk deployments. Scott Wilkinson of BlueBolt shared information on Persona Bar development from his DNNCon presentation in which Scott presented, "the most efficient and best practices for building and packaging a React Persona Bar extension, [and shows] practical examples of how to use the Persona Bar extension as a solution to a problem.
