Users of this module are familiar with the wide range of options and possibilities that this module has to offer. However, the functionality of the module can be additionally expanded by our other four modules: the EasyDNN Gallery, EasyDNN Rotator, EasyDNN MailChimp Plus and EasyDNN Maps. Integrated with the EasyDNN News module these modules will enable more advanced gallery management and more attractive gallery displays in articles, displaying blogs, articles, and events in attractive sliders, generating and sending newsletters with newly published articles to subscribers, and displaying location markers from articles on Google maps.
