DNN has always had a myriad of extensions to meet almost any
business requirements. So many that it’s always a challenge to decide on one module
from many competing products.
Consider the following checklist before clicking on “Checkout”
for your next DNN Module(s):
DUPLICATE CONTENT: Make sure that the module does not duplicate content. For
example, if the module uses query parameters such as
www.yoursite.com?ItemId=12 or www.yoursite.com?article=dnn-module-features
unique URL should have a distinct Page Title, Meta Description & Keywords.
The single most effective SEO consideration is to ensure that the module integrates
with your Friendly URL provider and creates friendly URLs. This is no
longer a concern with introduction of improved URLs beginning with DNN 7.1.
Make sure AJAX is limited to back end interaction and
not used as a primarily driver of content. Automatic content fetch on
page scroll is great but if not implemented correctly would result in content
that’s not indexed by search engines. If the module uses AJAX extensively then
ensure that the URL Hash (such as
is changed with every change in content presentation, and Hash URLs exist in
static/root document to be indexed by search engines.
The average web users’ attention span is under 7 seconds, so
it’s crucial that the DNN Module is performance optimized and renders as
quickly as possible.
DNN Module should implement caching to
replace frequent round trips back to the database and / or file system.
CLIENT RESOURCE MANAGEMENT:
Introduced in DNN 6.1, CRM framework allows the site to load
that the DNN Module implements the Client Resource Management framework.
that the module integrates with DNN API to request jQuery or jQuery UI
than injecting their own scripts, which results in increased page size and
conflicts across other modules and components.
It’s a given that the DNN Module must have the required
features that meet your business requirements. It’s imperative that it also has a satisfying
INTUITIVE USER INTERFACE: Make sure the User Interface is intuitive and easy to follow.
If you as the admin/integrator can’t accomplish basic tasks without looking
over documentation again and again, then it’s likely your clients / end users
will be calling you over and over again as well.
WELL DOCUMENTED: Make sure the module includes documentation with easy to follow screenshots and/or videos.
EXCELLENT SUPPORT: Any software is as good as its support. Make sure the
support is prompt and competent to address your business requirements. It’s
always a good idea to start with a pre-sales question.
