  • Responsive Capabilities

    Once with version 2.0 Easy Container comes with built-in responsive capabilities so all you have to do is define which module is visible on what devices.

    Easily clone containers so you don't have to start from scratch with each new container.

  • Layout Settings

You Have Questions, We Have The Answers

Frequently asked questions cover answers to most of the questions that you might have related to Easy Container. Please read this section carefully before waiting for support. Who knows? You might find the answer quicker than expected.

FAQ 1. Is there a trial version available?

Yes. You can download the Easy Container 30 day free trial from here

The trial version is identical to the full version, except for the time limitations.

FAQ 2. Can I extend my trial?

No, but for outstanding situations, please email us at [email protected]

FAQ 3. Will I lose the settings I make during the trial when I buy?

Absolutely not. You just need to use for activation the registration key received via email after the purchase was made.

FAQ 4. I’ve hired a developer to work on my site. Who should buy the license?

You should. It is always best for you, the site owner, to have access to your account on dnnsharp.com. That’s how you access downloads, license keys, and support. You can purchase an Easy Container license under your own name and then give the developer the license key for the site. That way, you retain control of your own module purchase in the event that you need access or decide to switch developers.

FAQ 5. Can I use Easy Container to build and distribute applications?

You can integrate and distribute Easy Container with your own products, but it should not be main functionality, it shoud be added value, and should not be in competition with our existing product. If we go into competition later, the developer will still be allowed to use the version he owns at that time, and continue to develop it, but will not receive new updates.

FAQ 6. Can I have one instance for dev, staging and live?

Yes, but please contact us at [email protected]

FAQ 7. Can the license be transferred?

Yes, but only if there is a transfer of ownership of the entire product.

FAQ 8. Can I upgrade to different license type later?

Yes, you can upgrade to a higher tier (and more value-packed) license for just the price difference in qualifying purchases made within the past 3 months. If your purchase was made more than 3 months ago, don’t worry, we still have a special offer for you. Just email us at [email protected]

FAQ 9. Where can I get support?

We have a dedicated support forum for Easy Container.

This forum is monitored on week days. That is the best place to pose your questions; not only does our team moderate the forum and provide light module support, but other users are always chiming into the the discussions with their own thoughts — which makes for a solid experience on all fronts, and allows a number of perspectives that wouldn’t be present during an email exchange.

Our support forums focus on helping people with bugs and other issues, and we can not provide in-depth support on complex customizations of our modules. Most legitimate bugs that are reported will be logged and fixed for the next release; if a workaround can be easily provided, we’ll share one in the interim. When it comes to customization, while we’re happy to help point users in the right direction towards accomplishing a desired customization if we can, we won’t build your site or app for you.

FAQ 10. If I upgrade my DNN version, do I need to also upgrade the module?

It's recommended because we test and optimize for new versions. Sometimes, new DNN version also breaks our modules so then you'll be required to upgrade. It's recommended to upgrade all at once to optimize the Q&A costs.
