20 Awesome Best-Practice Apps for Dnn and Oqtane

We've completely rewritten 20 of our most popular apps to latest best-practices and hybrid.

What was Improved

We've invested more than 2 months of work into our template Apps to make them amazing again. All of the apps are now....

  1. ...great best-practices samples to use as-is
  2. ...great for learning how to build your own with 2sxc 12 best-practices
  3. on Dnn and Oqtane
  4. ...optimized for Bootstrap 4 and work on Bootstrap 3 and 5
  5. ...much simpler in terms of code and data structure
  6. image-resizing using settings from your site
  7. ...jQuery-free

All these apps are released in a way to allow side-by-side installation with older versions, so you can migrate to the latest version or use ideas in your existing, customized App. 

The Content App

This is the primary App on any Dnn / Oqtane installation which has various text/image combinations, google-maps and more. You will get it when you auto-install the Content or you can browse the code on github.

Gallery, Swiper and Visual-Effects Apps

  1. Swiper v2 is the most awesome image-carousel App and uses SwiperJs
  2. Gallery v7 is our favorite, most flexible gallery in Dnn and uses Fancybox 4
  3. Image Hotspot v3 shows an image with clickable hotspots
  4. Compare Images v2 is a typical before/after App
  5. Counter v2 is your count-to 752-Customers or 5930-Coffees App

Publishing Apps

  1. Blog v5 is your standard Blog, but since it's all Razor and Open-Source, super customizable
  2. PodCast v2 is a great choice for churches and coaches
  3. People Directory v4 is a great foundation for showing team members and auto-generates vCards with images and everything
  4. Glossary v3 is a great way to explain words and improve your Google SEO rankings
  5. FAQ v4 is another great way to help your customers and improve your SEO
  6. News v5 is a great news app for all kinds of announcements (not yet released)
  7. CTA (Call to Action) v3 is an elegant, simple conversion maker (not yet released)

Page Enhancement Apps

  1. Accordion v4 is our favorite enhancement to mobile sites, giving you an accordion with inner content
  2. IFrame v3 is simple, but it's there when you need it
  3. Snippet Inject v3 lets you add special CSS or JS to any page for those special moments...
  4. Popup Message v3 lets you show new visitors a special message on any page - and it's configurable to determine when it should appear or not appear again
  5. QR Code v2 lets you generate QR codes for the current page or any other link - optionally only visible when the page is printed

Advanced Apps

  1. Mobius v5 is a super-flexible online-form App with which you can create any kind of form for contacting you, sending you files, registering to Mailchimp and more - with built-in Recaptcha 3.0
  2. Events, Courses and Registration v6 is the App for publishing events and taking registrations for them


Just try them out - either with the auto-installer or just get the ones you need.
