Track events in realtime and historical with DNN Google Analytics Advanced

DNN comes with a built-in module “Google Analytics” for web analysis. You can find it under Admin > Google Analytics in every DNN installation. Setting it up is easy: Just enter your Google Analytics Tracking ID and your page views will be tracked. You can optionally disable tracking of admins (which is quite useful as you probably don’t want to distort your reports). Evoq Content – DNN’s enterprise version – comes with “Google Analytics Professional”. In addition to DNN’s standard module, the Professional version features options for segmentation.

However, DNN and Evoq are limited to page view tracking. Tracking events such as downloads, search requests, and dead links (404) is not possible with either of them. This is why we developed DNN Google Analytics Advanced. Continue reading

DNN Dynamic Roles Tip 3: Show content for users that are members of Role1 and Role2

Using DNN’s default role system, you may know the following issue: When restricting the visibility of your site’s module to specific roles, the roles are connected by a logical OR. However, there are situations where you want a module to be visible only if a user is a member of two (or more) roles. Creating a separate new (combined) role and managing role memberships manually is complex and error-prone. DNN Dynamic Roles makes this job easy by extending DNN’s standard permission system and automating the process of managing role memberships.

Go beyond static: How to add automagic to DNN’s role system

By employing the technique, you can easily display additional content for super users, display some relevant information for your sellers, or hide products already bought from customers on your e-commerce website. But there is one central limitation. Continue reading

DNN Dynamic Roles Tip 2: Turn a static DNN role into a dynamic one

Do you already have set up a static (“usual”) role in DNN, assigned some users to it, and want to turn it into a dynamic one now? That’s easy: Just create a new dynamic role with the same name using DNN Dynamic Roles. As the module integrates smoothly with DNN’s default role system, the users assigned manually will stay assigned. Continue reading

Using logical operators in DNN Dynamic Roles

Logical operators are a powerful means to connect booleans. As you may know, you express the rules that make up a dynamic role in XML syntax. Each rule results in a boolean value when evaluated by the DNN Dynamic Roles module. Using the module’s logical operators is easy: Continue reading
