Implementing the Source Code

Apr 9, 2010 at 2:32 PM


I'm very new in DNN and have the following issue.

I have downloaded the latest Source Code file that is available and I wanna implement the code and create my customized module in order to install in my DNN site. I've tried to search for instructions for this and have been battling for hours. 

I've installed the module in my DNN site and it works fine. So I've opened my site in VS and tried to add the source files through the 'Add Existing Items' option but this does not work. The source code files when added in this way do know load and changes there are included in the project

I would appreciate any help or links

Hi siyadot,

Try this link:

it gives you an exlpaination of how to setup NB_Store in VS.

If your just starting with DNN, then a good idea could be to get a book on DNN modules building....The first thing I did was buy a book called "Building Websites with VB.NET and DotNetNuke 3.0".. ..I don;t know if a newer version exists..but this book has some nice simple explainations and work throughs for creating a DNN module.

Thanks, David. Those instructions worked perfectly. I now can compile the source code and also step through the code while debugging. 


Thanks again.
