    Licensing FAQs

    Q. Can I use the module(s) on several pages on my site? A. Yes, you can have multiple instances of the modules across your site.
    Q. What if I have several portals on the same DNN installation? A. If you only have one DNN installation, your Standard edition will work for you across multiple portals.
    Q. What license will I need if I have several sites? A. The Enterprise Edition is a license for as many DNN installations that you directly own and operate. This, however, does not include a license to redistribute to clients. You may purchase Standard or Enterprise licenses on behalf of your clients so they have their own licenses. However, if you wish to purchase 1 license that will allow you to install at unlimited # of client sites, then you will need the Developer License.
    Q. What kinds of customers will need the Developer License?

    A. The key factor for the Developer License is re-distribution. Here are some examples where the Developer License will be required:

    • A web developer who will install the module(s) in multiple client sites.
    • A franchise company who operates applications using our modules across multiple franchisee websites.
    • A business entity with independent contractors where the business entity provides website templates using our modules for various sites to operate the independent contractor's business.
    Q. What do you mean by “direct access to Data Springs support.“ A. For customers who have the Standard or Enterprise license, this means that the customer can contact Data Springs directly via the Contact Us (Support) Form or a Snowcovered HelpDesk ticket for questions and for problem resolution. The same is true if you have the Developer License. However, If you obtained your modules through a developer using a Developer License, please course all questions through this developer. The developer can contact Data Springs for issues that need further assistance. Please see our Data Springs Support Agreement for more details.
    Q. Please explain your policy regarding access to patches. A. All Standard, Enterprise, or Developer licensees can access patches within your account under Patches and Hotfixes and/or MyDownloads. However, if you obtained your module through a developer, please contact your developer directly to access any available patches.
    Q. What about the Upgrade Path and Discounts? A. As a Standard, Enterprise, or Developer licensee, there may be automatic discounts available to you when you upgrade. Please see our Upgrade Policy for details. If you obtained your modules through a developer, please contact your developer for product updates and pricing.

    1.) Will this module run on 4.9.x? 5.x.x? 2.) How does the licensing work? Is it one license per server installation? Do I need an additional license for a development & testing servers?
    1) Yes, all Data Springs modules run on DNN 4.9 and 5.0. If you do encounter any bug that is related to our modules, we will deliver a patch ASAP. 2) The standard edition is licensed for a single DNN installation but with unlimited portals under that installation. This standard edition also includes a "localhost" installation. The Enterprise Edition is licensed for as many DNN installations as your organization directly owns/maintains (cannot redistribute or distribute separately to clients but an unlimited amount for Enterprise License for each organization who purchases the license). The source code is included with either package (if you choose to purchase that option).
    Hi, On your site you still have the standard arrangement of the Username: text and its textbox and the Password: text and its textbox ie label above the box. I need to put the text and the box inline can your module do this please? username textbox password textbox Thanks, Mike
    Yes, you can modify the template layout so username/password appears on the same row. -- David
    Using your module can I require that a new user registers using an email address for their user name with email validation (forcing a valid email format) ?
    Hi. Actually to do this you would need to use the sister product, Dynamic Registration and this will handle what you are needing. Dynamic Login would be if you wanted the user to have a username but maybe optionally allow the user to sign in using their email address as well.
    We have two login pages that use the DNN core login module with different skins. We want to have two login pages with different login features and skins on each login module. Can we use 2 instances of the Dynamic Login module but with different setting on each?
    Hi. Yes Dynamic Login can easily handle these requirements. You can have as many instances of the module that you would like and each instance can have its own features/layout and template etc... Thanks!
    Can I get a trial version to test? Thank You, Dan
    Hi, Yes - You can download the trial version here: Thanks! Chad
