If blogging started when some individual wanted to express their ideas, feelings, thoughts, opinions, and finally to put everything into words, why should there be any difference for companies and businesses to do the same?

For some time now, we have been developing and enhancing the event management in the Easy DNNnews module. If you are a current user of the EasyDNNnews module, then you are well familiar that some articles can be published as events. Current possibilities have involved the possibility of event creation, adding start and end date, creation of recurring event, editing each event from a series of recurring events, adding an event location with Google Map. Events could have been shown together with all the other articles or separately in the article list and also in the simple and advanced calendar.
The standard interface for adding articles in EasyDNNnews module provides a wide range of options and possibilities. Yet, what to do when you want to simplify the interface for certain users or disable using certain functionalities? EasyDNNnews allows for the interface to be adjusted to DNN roles. Thus, it is possible for users in one role to have available all the possibilities that the interface for adding and editing articles provides, whereas users from another role can be denied certain options.
In practice, it is often necessary for one user to add articles in the name of another author, or an article author's name needs to be changed afterwards. Selecting or changing an article author can be performed in the interface for adding and editing articles. This option is located at Advanced settings / Article owner.
Get the maximum out of your EasyDNNnews module, when integrated with EasyDNNgallery and EasyDNNrotator module. Easy to set up and easier to use.
For the integration to be functional, both modules need to be installed on the same DNN portal. All the settings are available in EasyDNNrotator module.
EasyDNNnews features cross portal sharing, which means that articles from a portal can be shared or displayed on other portals within the same DNN installation, without having to add the same articles again into EasyDNNnews. Articles can be edited only on the portal where they have been added into an EasyDNNnews module, and they can be displayed on an unlimited number of portals. Article details are opened on the current portal, that is, they do not lead to the portal they have been taken from.
EasyDNNnews provides advanced setting of permissions for visitors and authors. Permission management allows for a large number of permissions, so it is possible to strictly determine who may see certain articles, or who can publish and manage articles, and how.
EasyDNNnews 6.0 brings you the possibility to create custom fields in articles. Custom fields in the EasyDNNnews module are organized in groups enabling different groups of fields to be used with different types of articles. E.g. the Event group of custom fields for events and the Article group for regular articles.
EasyDNNnews module's settings are organized into sections. Currently there are 20 sections containing various setup options. Thus, permissions are set up in section "1. Permissions", templates and themes are selected in section "6. Template and theme selection", and Google maps settings can be tweaked under section "20. Google maps setting".
