Multi-site data sharing is a huge time-saver and greatly improves coordination for mobile site and micro-site development that leverages existing content.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
PackFlash, developer of superior modules for the DotNetNuke WCMS (Web Content Management System), has just released an updated version of Constellation 3.2, Integrated Module Suite for DNN. This version has the capability to tie 2 or more websites together and share the content on all of those sites. Shared data can include any content put into the PackFlash modules such as news, blogs, webinars, image galleries, videos.
Constellation is a combination of eight core DotNetNuke modules that are fully integrated with each other. No other module suite in the DotNetNuke (DNN) market offers this kind of integration. The modules include News & Blogs, Image Gallery, Slideshow, Friendly URLs, Mega Drop-Down Menu, Comments, Videos and Events Module for DotNetNuke.
When shared, the content is treated like it is part of the new site instead of taking the user back to the original website. This is to make sure that the shared data doesn’t take the user off the site that they are currently browsing, prioritizing engagement on the existing site. Administrators that have permission to see all of the sites are allowed to choose what websites can share data with each other, while website administrators have the ability to decide when to use the data from another website on their particular website pages.
Version 3.2 of the PackFlash Constellation DNN Modules also offers significant functionality upgrades to the Friendly URLs Module to support the multi-site portal data sharing. This functionality includes automatic detection of duplicate content and management of the canonical version of the URL across all of the websites that are sharing content. This will provide comfort to the website owners that they will not realize a search engine penalty that might arise from duplicate content across their web properties.
Additional upgrades to Constellation include a user interface improvement to the Mega Drop-down Menu Module to make it automatically detect and replace the existing menu system, administrative control of all menu settings, additional included themes, and versioning of the menus that are created.
"Multi-site data sharing is a huge time-saver and greatly improves coordination for mobile site and micro-site development that leverages existing content. Any website that wants a quick way to leverage all of their content on a mobile site would immediately benefit from this approach. This is particularly true for any organization that plans to use DotNetNuke’s new mobile features in DNN 6.1+.” claims CEO of PackFlash, Chris Risner.
Other improvements to the Constellation software include improved preview capabilities that follow the page/template hierarchy rules of the system, image resizing options for “best fit”, provided ability to specify a 404 error page per website rather, as well as many others.
