How to set up the EasyDNNnews, EasyDNNgallery and EasyDNNrotator

1.1. How to add EasyDNNnews to a page within activity feed

Image

In the field where the page's name is entered, enter for example My articles and click on the button Create Page(s). Follow this by switching on the option Include in Menu, in page's settings.

Image

Permissions can be set up according to your needs, just click on the Update page button at the bottom of the page.

Image

Then click on user account. In the module's Console menu you will see the newly created page My articles. Click on that page to open an empty page where you need to add EasyDNNnews module.

Click on Modules menu in DotNetNuke, select EasyDNNnews and click on Add module.

 A page set up in this manner will be valid for all users, and each user will have a "My articles" page within Activity feed, where only his or her articles will be displayed. 

The procedure is the same for adding the module on the group activity feed



1.2. How to set up EasyDNNnews in order work in the Community mode and to post to Journal

In order to tweak the settings according to your preferences, you must be logged in as the host (superuser) or admin user.
 

To post information on published articles in EasyDNNnews to the Journal, you need to:

a)     Switch on the "Community modue" option and posting to the Journal in Settings
b)     Set up permissions (who can publish the article, who can post to the Journal, etc.)
c)     Switch on the option that a user can edit only his or her own articles.

 

a)  Switch on community mode and the option of posting to the Journal in Settings 

Click on module's settings. Then click section 18.  – Autoposting to Journal and Social networks. There you need to switch on the options  - "Community mode" and "Enable posting to Journal when article is added."
 

The community mode option is visible in Settings only when the module is added on the Activity feed. This option enables filtering of articles by userID and groupID. 

 

Additionally, you can choose which data exactly will be published in the Journal. It is possible to publish title, subtitle, summary and image.

Image

 

b)  Set up permissions (who can publish the article, who can post to the Journal, etc.) 

Click on section "1. Permissions" in module's settings. For a particular role, set up the required permissions. You have a wide choice of various rules over articles that can be associated with a role, but the minimum of use in community mode requires that following options must be switched on:

Social autoposting

Choose category or categories where a role member can publish an article.

Image

 

c)  Switch on the option that a user can edit only his or her own articles. 

Click on section "1. Permissions" in module's settings, then switch on the option "Author can only edit his own articles".


Click on section "9. EasyDNNgallery integration" in module's settings, then switch on the option "User can see only their own galleries that they have created". 

Image



After tuning all the settings according to your preferences, click the button Save settings at the bottom of module settings, in order to save all the settings you have modified.

It is recommendable to add Console module at My articles page, along with EasyDNNmodule.

You can see the Console module's recommended settings in the following picture:

Now open Community mode settings menu in EasyDNNgallery module.

Image



You need to switch on the option Enable community mode for this instance. When you do this, the following additional options will become available:

Image



Enable Journal post galleries – switch on this option if you wish for images directly added by the user to the Journal to be displayed in Journal post gallery. Images are added to Journal post gallery with assistance of DNN Scheduler, in the set time intervals.

Enable posting to Journal – switching on this option enables posting information on new items to the Journal.


Auto post to Journal – switching on this option means that information on new items in the Journal will be automatically published. If this option is not switched on, the user can choose whether to publish information in the Journal while adding new items or not.

Opening instance – here you can choose the module's instance where the items published in the Journal will be displayed.

Auto resize images – switch on this option if you wish for user added images to be reduced to a set size as they are uploaded. If this option is not switched on, the user can switch it on each time he or she adds images.

After that, it is necessary to set up the gallery's appearance in Gallery settings, then choose categories to display the galleries. It is possible to display items within nested galleries, or display them together as a group.

After setting all this options up, the gallery is ready to be operational in community mode. It is important to note that the gallery can be used as previously in other instances; the community mode is related only to the instance it is switched on in.

 

And finally, My galleries page will look like this:

The procedure is the same for adding the module on the group activity feed

 

2.2. How to add items when the EasyDNNgallery is in community mode

 

At the page where EasyDNNgallery module is present, above the module, the user can find the link My galleries. Clicking on My galleries link opens the interface for user galleries' management.

Image


The user can manage only his or her own galleries, whereas other users' galleries are not possible to be managed. Within the gallery management interface, galleries are organized in three categories: My galleries, News articles galleries (if EasyDNNnews is installed) and Journal post gallery. The user can add new galleries only into My galleries category. The user can select desired privacy settings (Everyone, Community members, Friends, Private).

The user can add images, videos (embed only) and audios (mp3) to galleries, and publish them in the Journal.
