Collapse DNN empty panes in Edit Mode

Mark Buelsing 0 65 Article rating: No rating

When a DNN page is in edit mode, the empty window panes are unnecessarily tall and force you to scroll to see your content. You can collapse the empty panes with a little CSS.

One way is to add the following to the portal.css page

 

.dnnModuleManager.dnnSortable {
    min-height: 22px!important;
}

 

Another way is to edit the css file that has the class that is making them too tall.

httpdocs\DesktopModules\Admin\Dnn.EditBar\Resources\ContentEditorManager\Styles

Line 9  min-height: 135px !important;

Change it to 22 px

min-height: 22px !important;

And save

Pop Up a Page, or a Page with a Form on it

If you want to pop up a page on top of the current one, add the following to the end of the querystring to remove the page skin and containers.

?dnnprintmode=true&SkinSrc=%5bG%5dSkins%2f_default%2fNo+Skin&
ContainerSrc=%5bG%5dContainers%2f_default%2fNo+Container

 

If this is a form, add the following to have the form close when it is submitted.

&afcallparentonsubmit=angridEditDone

More than Just Text

Mark Buelsing 0 679 Article rating: No rating

When you make an announcement on your Home page, add something more than just the text. Optimally add an image or clipart to emphasize or just beautify the text. In the least, provide a title and format it differently than the announcement text below it. 

Remember if you format your announcement title, make sure you use consistent formatting to the other content on the page. Consistent formatting = Professionalism.
