Spooky Sprockets!

Ok, so not so spooky really.  It’s Halloween which makes me, inevitably, think of one thing: TWO MONTHS OF MAJOR HOLIDAYS START NOW.  What does that mean for your business? Sales! Promotions! Deals!  This is the time of year where everyone decides to splurge a bit while trying to save a buck.  This is the perfect time of year to hammer out details for a great seasonal deal.  If you haven’t even been considering one yet, it’s definitely not too late.  Most sales don’t start till the end of next month anyway.  You’ve still got time!

You're involved in running your business and don't have time to spend worrying about how to make your website look good on mobile devices. We get that. But there are some basics that deserve your attention. 

#DotNetNuke Superheroes Take to the Small Screen

Sprocketeer and TechMan Learn Miniature is Not Always Mighty

Don Gingold 0 4663 Article rating: No rating

Back from an informative DotNetNuke World 2012, TechMan is inspired. 

"We're the hit of the conference! Everybody was talking about showing websites on small screens. Miniature is in, man!"

"Right you are, old chum, The world needs small websites." Sprocketeer returned. "And we're just the size, er, guys to do it. Let's get busy! We're going to need to develop a shrink ray..." 

TechMan stops our Gallant Gearhead. "Wait a minute. I think we can build them without a shrink ray. Here's how."

Think you’re ready to take the jump and design your own website?  What’s next?  Choosing a color palette!  This is a much more important step to designing your website than you may think.  Arguably, one of the most important aspects of any design is its colors.  Sure, you want to gain some attention with your color choices but, you also want to make sure that it’s positive attention. 

Looking for a simpler photo upload

telerik radeditor image manager too complicated

Don Gingold 0 3230 Article rating: No rating

There are certainly many cool new modules out there for social interaction. And then there's the tried and true ones. Like Forums, for instance.

Forums let you know via email if a new post has happened. Not yet so with the new 6.2 journal. But the journal has a really simple way to add a photo to a post, and the forum has image manager, very powerful but way overly complicated for a quick forum post. We'd like to change that, with the help of the DNN community.

Twitter Newbie

This article has been updated on 2/20/2019 with the article entitled “Quick Tips for Twitter Beginners"

Well folks, we've reached over 220 twitter followers this week.  You may think, well... that's an odd number to be excited about.  But to a twitter newbie such as myself, every single last one of those follows ignited a little "woo hoo!" from the inside.  Prior to starting with Sprocket Websites, I didn't have a twitter account.  So, when asked to start up a twitter page for Sprocket Store, I said, "Sure! No big deal!" and thought, "gulp."  Before this, I hadn't even browsed into twitter to poke around or see what the buzz was about.

#DNNWorld Chills, Thrills and Spills for Superheroes

Sprocketeer and TechMan Confer with other Superheroes

Don Gingold 0 3912 Article rating: No rating

After a full day of DotNetNuke classes and networking, our Mighty Mini Marvels of Content Management retire to the Sprocket Rocket sitting cloaked on the rooftop of the Lake Buena Vista Palace.

"Quite a full day, TechMan. My head is spinning with the new knowledge I've acquired this day."

TechMan quipped back, "Are you sure it's not the martinis, Sprocketeer?"

"Right you are, old @#$#@ chum. But let's recap. What did we observe today?"

#DNNWorld Opens with a Bang...

of the Steel Drum at the Wednesday Reception

Don Gingold 0 3174 Article rating: No rating

The sound of reggae and calypso music floats across the water and down the path leading to the poolside party. Sprocketeer follows the sound of the steel drum as he makes his way in complete stealth to infiltrate the DNNWorld Opening Reception. 

But it wasn't easy. Even in the lush resort area, alligators and black snakes were a threat to our Mighty Mini Marvel of Content Management.
