Efficion's Articles Module for DNN

The Articles module from Efficion Consulting is a powerful and flexible Content Management System for DotNetNuke. It can be used to display articles, announcements, latest news, events, blogs, testimonials, and much more.


  • Templates/Skinning- 10 standard templates are provided with the install and an unlimited number of additional templates can be added to allow you to display the Article List exactly how you want it.
  • Images & Thumbnails- An image can be displayed for each article. Thumbnails are automatically generated based on a configrable MaxWidth parameter. Images can be aligned either Left, Right, Top, or Alternating.
  • Search Engine Friendly URLs- URLs generated by the module include the Article Title to maximize rankings for your keywords
  • Intelligent Filtering & Multisourcing- An Article can appear in multiple places within your site. You can choose whether to display only the articles created within the current module or display articles from any module and use a variety of criteria (Featured, Categories, Creation Date, ...) to determine which Articles are displayed.
  • Multiple Sort options- Will be able to specify sort by created date, modified date, expire date, or title.Categories- Integrates with Efficion's Categories Module to allow for filtering by category
  • Comments- You may specify whether registered and/or anonymous users may leave comments for an article.
  • Paging- Admins can set the number of articles to display per page and a paging control will automatically display.
  • Search- Users can search all articles in the portal through the article specific search functionality and the module fully integrate's with DNN's search interface.

Articles 4.0.10 (Release Candidate 1) - January 8, 2009

We have made version 4.0.10 available as the first Release Candidate for version 4.0. Most of the features and changes have been tested extensively by many users but there are enough changes between version 4.0.9 and this version that I feel it's best to call this a release candidate so it can get some additional external testing before I deem it the full release.

In addition to the new release, I've made improvements to this page and site and have installed the latest version of Active Forums to improve support, organization, and information about this and our other modules. View the Forums.

Articles 4.0.8 (Beta 1b) is now available

This version contains several significant bug fixes, CAPTCHA for non-logged in comments, SEO enhancements, new options for templates, and a new way of handling CSS. I'll be writing up guidelines on styling the module through CSS prior to the release. I also hope to have quite a bit of additional "Help" information for the release.

There are known bugs in this release mostly relating to particular and less common settings. Click Read More to view known bugs and planned features.

(UPDATE: 4.0.7 had some bugs with Detail Template loading that have been fixed for 4.0.8)

Update on Articles 4.0.x status

It's been a bit since I posted 4.0.6 but I assure you I have not been idle. Since the release of 4.0.6, over 50 issues have been submitted, reviewed, and responded to, added to the ticket system, and/or fixed. At the time of this writing, there are 21 issues that need to be addressed before we reach beta status. I do plan on releasing 4.0.7 in the next couple days with a variety of fixes and improvements.

Articles 4.0.6 (Alpha 3) Now Available

I've still got a few more things I need to do before I can call this a beta but this release is really shaping up nicely. I am now using it on all my major sites and have done quite a lot of testing. But it will be a few more days before we get to code-freeze and the beta. Here's alpha 3 for those that can't wait.

If you get an error about an "Ambiguous" class definition when you install this, you need to delete the EfficionConsulting.Articles.dll from your bin directory. When I release the beta version, I'll be compiling the module into a DLL again or making both styles available.

Please report any bugs you find in the module to the right.
