To create a compliant site, you need to use DNN5. No modification or third party components are required.

  • Q: Can changes be made and applied when logged in as admin instead of superuser? We would like to give several people the ability to make changes to the skin but we don't want to give some of them superuser credentials. Thanks, MRW

    A: Hi there Admin and Host accounts can use EasyMod. Additionally you can simply ****ign editor permissions to other groups using the standard DNN module settings. Please let me know if we can help further. Kind regards DrNuke

  • Q: Does this skin work with DNN 6.0?

    A: Yes, this software is compatible with DNN 6. Regards DrNuke www.drnuke.co.uk

  • Q: I am using this skin and have a question. Can you tell me what sets the "user border" in the containers? I'm trying to use the container main user border, but can't find where to change the thickness of that border? What is user border? Thanks for your help.

    A: A "user border" container inherits the same border style as the main skin border. These containers are best used in the "outer" panes as here they sit directly over the background image and give a really nice effect. Please let me know if we can help further. Regards DrNuke www.drnuke.co.uk

  • Q: I see that Catalyst comes with several stock images, but will I be able to import my own images into the skin?

    A: Hi Bobby. Sure you can add your own images to the library, simply copy the images to the relevant skin folder and your images will become available in EasyMod. Please let me know if we can help further. Regards DrNuke www.drnuke.co.uk

  • Q: Just checking that Catalyst 2 can be customized to look like Catalyst 1's logo area where the logo is included in the main page area as opposed to floating transparently at the top on the background area?

    A: There is an option in Catalyst2 for both layouts. The logo can either be inside or outside the main content area. Regards James DrNuke www.drnuke.co.uk

  • Q: Can I write my own skin objects and use them with your product?

    A: Catalyst2 is built using standard DNN skin practices so there should be no problem here. If the skin objects work with the default DNN skin MinimalExtropy, they will likely work with Catalyst2. Regards James DrNuke www.drnuke.co.uk

  • Q: We would like to be able to change the size of the left/right panels etc. Does your product allow the panels to be stretched, or does this only apply to the overall template width?

    A: The content pane proportions can be easily adjusted with CSS. We can help you do this if required. Regards James DrNuke www.drnuke.co.uk

  • Q: Can we use your product to customize each page in our site, or do the changes apply to all pages in the site.

    A: The skins using the EasyMod module are template based. So you can create different designs for each page of your site. This could be using different colours for different pages to create sections of the site, or different banners for each page etc. Regards James DrNuke www.drnuke.co.uk
