Bulk User Manager 2.7
Pieter Van T (12) says... 5 5.0

user icon I am happy to say this module caters to all my user import / export needs. (I'm currently building a totally new version based on a new install package on my local test server, so I needed a quick and easy way to import the users from my old live site.) This module saved me a lot of time, and the user-friendliness is high. Top marks.

DNNBackup 8.7 - Backup, Restore and Clone DNN and Evoq Installations
Pieter Van T (12) says... 5 5.0

user icon This module is a MUST-HAVE! The functionality is no doubt one of the things that professional users of dotnetnuke miss most: backup/restore functionality from within & transportation between environments. Instead of having to go through the pain of manually taking backups of your database and files, and logging on to the server / FTP to do all that, having all of this done by a module is a great idea. Not only a time-saver, but also a life-saver as you'll need a backup lying around when you least expect it... And if you don't have control over restoring but have to rely on your hosting company to do it, this is a way to take control. Regarding the options of the module: they are really extensive. For example, you can set which folders to exclude on the file backup, or which tables on the database backup, you can customize buffers for the zip and set the amount of compression, etc. You might want to fiddle with some these options depending on your environment's available resource

IndooGrid 2.6
Pieter Van T (12) says... 5 5.0

user icon This is a top module, and I would reccommend it to everyone. You should get cracking at your SQL, CSS etc if you want to make the most of it, but even for the technolfabetics out there this still has a lot 'out of the box' functionality. I have only been using this for a while, but so far it works flawlessly and helps me in more ways than I though possible before buying this module. It caters the needs for anyone who needs to acces & display database content / want to work with forms. The extensability does even include using binaries and images, though I haven't tried that as I like my current ways of dealing with them on my websites.

Bulk Emailer - Advanced DNN Email Module 62.09.03
Pieter Van T (12) says... 4 4.0

user icon As the automatic licensing didn't work in my case, I raised a call through the license support email account listed on the site / module / manual. I sent a reminder and never an answer. I was getting very displeased and voted '1' on a previous review explaining my problems. After thinking it through, I remembered that I originally had set up my Snowcovered account with another email account - which isn't active anymore, hence the switch. And when I filled in the old, non-existing email account, voilà, the automatic licensing worked. The good news here is of course that it now and that I am impressed by the functionality of the module. As this is an issue of Snowcovered rather than of InteractiveWebs or the BulkEmailer module itself, I think it's fair I only deduce one star for the non-responsiveness to an email account listed as the support email for licensing in the documentation of the module. NB: Snowcovered opened a call but never got back to me on the issue.

0028 Silverlight Media Gallery 4.3 - Video & Audio & Photo & Flickr
Pieter Van T (12) says... 4 4.0

user icon This is a useful gallery for anyone who wants to impress the visitors on their site. It's got a nice design and the look & feel are good. But when it comes to user security (for example for who can upload / moderate etc)... it falls short against the better gallery modules out there. I have experienced some failures of the module too - sometimes not starting to play automatically etc. But most of the time it works as advertised, and no doubt any bugs you report will be picked up as support is definitively good. Overall, although it works and looks shiny, I'm not too impressed by it - I think there are better gallery modules out there. And, to be honest, Silverlight isn't the major used vector graphics player...

user icon First , thanks for your support. You konw we appreciate of that. I agree with you. It will be very helpful if module can support multiple users. Authorized users can manage their own folder/files and create their gallery as their wish. Yes, that's just the thing we do these days. Please check First , thanks for your support. You konw we app- x?tabid=242&PackageID=15272 for our new module - Classified Product 5.0, you can see in that module , we have build a User File Manager sub module successful. That sub module enabled authorized users manage their own folder/files easily. We will integrate it to Silverlight Media Gallery ( and also to Silverlight Photo Gallery module) in the next weeks. Please pay attention for the new release. We will continue to offer free upgrade when it comes. Thanks again for your suggestion. Xiao Qi from www.DnnModules.cn
Flex2 By DrNuke + EasyMod Module
Pieter Van T (12) says... 5 5.0

user icon The Flex2 in combination with the EasyMod module (delivered for free with the skin) is a jaw-dropping experience for anyone who's been using DNN for a while. This product reduces the time to make a complete new layout at record-breaking speeds, as it is WYSIWYG. It's as simple as that: just open the EasyMod module and start editing - whether it's the colour of your text, the background or the banners... you can change them really fast AND have a look at it before applying it to one of your environments. Thank you, DrNuke, for saving me a lot of time on my skinning!

Catalyst By DrNuke
Pieter Van T (12) says... 4 4.0

user icon Great skin! One of the best I know. Be sure to check out their Flex2 & EasyMod, too, though, as I think that one is even better (more flexible, more modern looks etc).

Apollo PageLocalization 5.2
Pieter Van T (12) says... 3 3.0

user icon It works, but it's not for people who don't want to dig deep into their skin code. I since moved on to use Adequation Localization Extensions, which works much better for my sites and has - to my experience - even better support.

Smoke Ranch Media Player 4.2 Enterprise Edition
Pieter Van T (12) says... 2 2.0

user icon It works, but that's about all I can say. I've since discovered better (and cheaper) alternatives. No special features you wouldn't find in any other professional media module, and I would say it's a bit clumsy at best.

Multi Media Gallery Pro 7.7
Pieter Van T (12) says... 4 4.0

user icon Very good multi-media gallery. I appreciate the security features (certain roles can add media, others can moderate) and it simply works as opposed to most of the other modules I've tried so far. Support is quick and good as well - had some problem to get it to work on DNN 5.1.1, and within a week: wham, version 7.8 was out and working. One minus: not XHTML compliant code at the moment, but I've already raised that concern and they are working on it for the next big release.

Localization Extensions 1.37 (FREE with source)
Pieter Van T (12) says... 5 5.0

user icon Best localization soft I've used (and I bought some commercially available products, believe me). The simplicity to get it running also pleased me. Great support too, as I had a slight incident with another module (caused by that other module).

Snapsis PageBlaster 3.4.5 Pro
Pieter Van T (12) says... 5 5.0

user icon Page caching and HTTP compression work great for getting your site's page responses faster. This module is really a MUST HAVE. Everyone has DNN pages that take long to load... this module helps you limit that. I'd recommend this to anyone!
