If ever there was an essential (must have) module for a DNN website, it is DNNBackup. The UI takes some getting used to, but otherwise it is a great module. It simply works!
I often wondered why anyone would purchase the DNNUpgrade module. I mean like, performing a DNN upgrade is a no-brainer; simply overwrite the existing files with the upgrade files, hit the URL, respond to a couple of prompts and that’s it – finished! Right? In a perfect work perhaps. A couple of days ago I discovered that the DNN platform is not perfect. Yes I am a newbie. During a manual upgrade of my site from DNN 734 to 742 the site was rendered useless. Of course I had a backup which I restored using DNNBackup and then I tried again - this time to 741 with the same result. It was at that point (a bit later actually) that I gave up, stepped aside and gave the job DNNUpgrade which completed the task in two optimized, conservative and responsible steps. Bang! Done. Obviously DNNUpgrade knows more than I do. Whatever. Anyway, I now own a DNNUpgrade license and no longer wonder. Thanks Evotiva.
DIXIT is great value for the money! This product provides a lot of sophisticated functionality especially for those who are comfortable making changes at the html-level, i.e. in “Shortcodes”. In a business environment where the end-user(s) will be making frequent changes to the content in module themes, definitely take the advice of the vendor and provide a user interface to each module in the form of Live Accordion, Tabs, Articles, etc. I highly recommend this Skin and the company behind it.
