DNN 7.0 makes creating and managing content-rich websites, social intranets and online communities easier than ever for designers and developers. This version provides features to make the DNN designers and developers more productive. Below are few important features available in DotNetNuke 7.0.

Improved CSS Foundation

In DotNetNuke 7.0 overhauled CSSfoundation makes it easy to create beautiful and engaging web sites with an improved cross-browser compatibility, extending standards compliance and increasing site performance. DNN 7.0 provides standard form patterns that designers can reuse or extend to build frequently used user-interface elements.

New Style Guide

A new style guide provides an easy way for skin developers to see how headings, buttons, lists and HTML content types will be rendered. With this designers can quickly customize and adjust their overhauled CSS to optimize new design skins.

Service Framework based on MS Web API

DotNetNuke 7.0 gives developers the ability to build and expose secure web services through the DNN Service Framework, which is now based on Microsoft’s Web API. The included jQuery, jQueryUI and Knockout.js libraries make it even easier for developers to utilize web services to create modern, interactive client-side applications. 

Simpler and Secure Data Access

Data access has been simplified through the introduction of a micro-ORM, allowing simpler and more secure database interactions with fewer lines of code.

Full Razor Support

With the baseline DNN platform requirements moving to ASP.NET 4.0, Razor is now a first class citizen in the framework for developing advanced modules with full support for packaging and distributions. ASP.NET Razor is now optimized for developing dynamic extensions and for combining code and content in a fluid and expressive manner.


DNN 7.0 is simply beautiful yet powerful. Go for it!!!
