I use this module constantly (and have, for many years). It works just as advertised, and is adequately documented, thereby earning my highest rating.

This is an excellent and full-featured DNN store module, but be warned: the documentation is hard to follow and that will cost you many hours of frustration. In my case, I've been using it for years and have learned it's ins and outs with a great deal of patience. Unless you are prepared to put in the hours and hours it takes to set this up, you might consider another strore solution.
I actually love this module. The reason for my low rating is that the navbar would disappear when I placed certain modules on the page (in case it matters, I am running DNN 6.1.4 at this writing). In an effort to resolve it, I attempted to contact the developer, Evan. I understand that he is ill and unable to provide support at this time. I wish him the best and hope that he recovers soon! Unfortunately, after losing a great deal of time trying to plug in another navbar solution with less-than-satisfactory results (if I had more time, I no doubt would have succeeded, but I was under deadline), I simply had to abandon use of this module in favor of another solution. Having said all this, the module itself is excellent and beautifully-designed, and will probably be just fine in the majority of cases.
I've been very active with DotNetNuke since 2.0. I've purchased (and built/modified) many skins over the years. I am giving this skin my highest rating, both because the skin itself is incredibly flexible (just look at all those panes and colors) and W3C Valid, and also because I had a question that was answered by the developer within a couple of hours--on a Saturday--both by phone and email. In case it's useful, I'm running DNN 6.1.4 at this writing.
digArticle has proven to be so feature-rich that I decided to move our thousands of articles from a solution I built myself, to digArticle. I have been waiting for years for someone in the DotNetNuke community to offer an article solution that rivaled what I built, and this one exceeds it by providing features I have long wanted to add but didn't have the time to add to my own solution -- and a couple that I didn't think to add. New features are being added almost by the week, and that is very impressive. I have also found Mike to be responsive to the needs of his customers, paying close attention to the posts in the support forum he provides. About the only feature it doesn't have at this writing is iPortable, but he has promised to add it to the module in due course. I couldn't ask for more.
The module is probably useful for feeds that are updated with one item per defined period (such as, say, a feed from a blog, where the blogger updates, say, once per day). However, on feeds that update frequently, such as one item every few minutes, this module is unable to keep pace. In other words, it returns by email just one entry (the most recent entry) for a feed that had dozens of items added to it in a 24 hour period. Until and if the developer adds the ability to define the number of items to return by email, or perhaps enables it to return all items added within a configurable time period, it's of no use for our purposes. The module does show promise though, and for those with very simple needs, it is useful.
The SEO Pack works exactly as advertised. I particularly like the ability to customize URL re-write on a per-portal basis, and even to turn it off on a portal if I want to. I was especially impressed, as usual, with the developer's attention to my questions. I was pleased that it works seemlessly with Pageblaster (the third-party caching module) that I use. I'm giving this one of my very rare highest ratings -- for a product that does what it says it will do, and for the individual and prompt attention by the developer.
This module has a good level of granularity -- it can block right-clicking on the whole page, images, and/or text. The documentation is good. I was pleased to find that it works well with the Mandeeps Live Content module, which I pretty much expected since this module is also a Mandeeps product. So, as a module that works as advertised right out of the "box," and that has good documentation, it give it my very rare highest rating.
This mondule worked perfectly right out of the "box," exactly as advertised. It gets my highest rating (which I almost never can give) because of the excellent documentation.
This module works exactly as promised.
This module worked perfectly for us, enabling us to enable users to log in with their email address in case they forgot their username (or didn't want to use their username). Our users are already singing our praises, I'm happy to report. UPDATE/WARNING: Unfortunately, it works too perfectly -- users can enter their email address AND ANY PASSWORD, creating a huge security hole. We've removed the module, of course, and are reporting the issue to the developer.
There is a serious bug in this module and despite five attempts to receive tech support, I have never had a response from the vendor. The module cannot be used for the purpose that it is intended so long as this bug occurs. Here is the bug: When the portal Security Setting for User Registration is set to Public, and only Public (rather than "None," "Private," or "Verified," the module switches the logged in user who is adding entries to the user who was just added. (It is as if User A logged out and logged back in again as User B.) In other words, if User A is trying to add User B the module will change the logged in user to User B instantly. Needless to say, this is both unexpected and rather inconvenient, and renders it useless for my purpose. My purpose is to give User A the power to add, remove and modify registrations of users in certain predefined roles.
I have never given a favorable rating for purchased module, until now. I've been waiting for something to actually impress me enough to warrant a favorable review. XMod 4.5 has done so, and so I am contributing my own review.
There is no doubt that XMod 4.5 is perhaps the most useful module I've purchased in the DNN universe, because it lets me confugure a solution my way. It's flexible and intuitive, and performing exactly as advertised. The documentation is is clear and comprehensive, which says a lot when so many modules for sale lack decent documentation or lack it altogether. But far more impressive has been Kelly's responsiveness to my questions. Unlike most other module developers, Kelly has gotten back to me promptly, and stayed with me until my question was handled fully. So, I'm giving XMod the highest rating, and to date this is the only module that has received it.
Upon receiving the application, I could not locate a manual. I have written to the author, requesting the documentation. A few clicks into trying the application, I received the following error message: "A critical error has occurred.
Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index"
I've just installed and am becoming familiar with CATALooK.netStore Pro & Booking Tools. The system seems robust and capable of doing what I need: register visitors to the DNN3 site folllowing payment by credit card. HOWEVER, I consider that the user's manual is a critical part of an application. The manual is very confusing, as though it were cobbled together over time. The poor manual caused me endless hours of unnecessary struggle as I attempted to get the software installed and configured -- time that I just did not have to lose. I very much recommend to the author, who is obviously producing an excellent application, to get some help with the manual or stop other work to rewrite the manual from the ground up. If the manual were better, I'd give this application the highest rating.
