There was a bug with Futura and SSL in IE6/7, SSL. The author Guillermo said he'd create a new version of the module that uses the new GA script and send me the update but he never did. He did say he had lost his laptop at the time but he told me he'd found it and then send me the final version 'tomorrow'. This was in September 2008. I later tried to email him and discovered that I was put in his spam list. I think the ifinity google analytics module will do the same job and it's free.
If you're looking to speed up your Dnn site switch out the Solpart menus! I was able to replicate the menus of my skin and halve my page size (according to FireBug) from 500k to 250k. Originally my uncached load times were untolerable 9 seconds over DSL. Now they're half that. In cache, the pages load in 1 second over DSL. So this is my number 1 speedup recommendation.
The way it has been implented makes the menus modular. I made a copy of my skin and embedded the menu into it. After I set that up, I could switch out the menus just about as easily as I could switch out skins. There are a number of samples that you can modify to create new menus.
The flash players in the suite have been ok. It's a wrapper to the JW image rotator so it's got lots of functionality. The only prob is it's had bugs in the past
The logic of Listx is great. Does greatly simplify database-driven work in Dnn.
Support at the forums was not bad, though they should sticky /compile some of the common questions so people don't have to dig over and over. Haven't really experienced any buggyness in the software actually. It was very well designed. These guys are seriously high caliber.
Which leads to my only quip: It wasn't easy to learn.
Documentation wasn't always clear. They could have had some simple(r) examples and highlight more subtleties.
They do have a full fledged 'Doctor' working example which demonstrates a lot of common functions but it's time consuming to dig through and there's no 'table of contents' of topics so to speak when dealing with the working example.
Another way to have made things clearer would have been to document the working example. At least highlight certain points, otherwise it's one huge scary thing to the beginner.
They do have a number of small package downloads th
This is probably one of my most used modules.
Does what it's supposed to do, and support is good too.
This is really good. It does everything that I could ever think of e.g. caching for speed, flexible layout.
I was originally going to tinker with the DNN news module but this module was an extraordinary time saver.
The caching and the customizability of the display is great.
The service is the best service I've experienced of any DNN firm. I've used a number of modules in this collection and the support for each has been speedy and very good and friendly.
