Where Can You Get The Modules?
What Are DNN Modules?
By definition, modules are software components that contain one or more routines. Also, it represents a set of reusable code, which can be installed into any DNN site. One interesting thing about a DNN module is that you'll be able to drag and drop them with ease to a page after installing them.
Furthermore, as a website owner, it's worth knowing that you can have multiple instances of the same module on a single web page. Also, you can share the modules across different pages and in the paid versions of DNN. Although it's also possible for you to share your DNN modules across multiple sites, it's worth noting that you'll only be able to do that through the Site Groups feature. Out of the box, DNN comes with some modules, called the DNN core modules. The issue with that, however, is that you won't be able to use them for a lot of functions.
How do I mean? Ok, let's take for instance you need a photo gallery module on your website, you won't be able to install it from the core modules mentioned above. That's because DNN doesn't come with a photo gallery module out-of-the-box. However, you need not worry too much about it, as there exist several third-party photo gallery modules that can take care of such needs. Speaking of third party modules, the DNN ecosystem has recommended some stores, where you can find relevant modules for your DotNetNuke site. One of them is the DNN Store. You can visit it by checking this page. In the store, you'll find several modules that can help you perform all kinds of functionalities on your DNN website. However, you'll have to pay before getting the chance to install them on your web page.
In case you have little or no budget and you need some DNN modules for your website, you need not worry too much about it. That's because there are also some platforms, recommended by DNN, which offer their codes as "open source". As such, you'll be able to download and install several modules from them for your DotNetNuke website. On GitHub, you can find some of the best modules for your web page at zero cost. Apart from that, Codeplex also offers modules free of charge, you can check here for more information regarding that. Just like the first two platforms, you can also check DNN Forge for some free modules.
