    Anyone here worked with DotNetNuke?

    I'm interning at a local grocery company, and am going to be redoing the company website. Dotnetnuke seems to be the most popular framework, but I am going to be doing some somewhat nonstandard stuff (will be building a module display online version of ads, store locator, etc). Is it easy to do this sort of thing?

    Nice. Have you done anything from a users perspective? Our current CMS is a piece of shit, and the people doing the web updates aren't the most computer savvy, so I'd like something that's easy for them to use.

    I'm creating 2 sites with it now...wouldn't have been my first choice, but it was a client request. It was a BITCH in the beginning, but now that I've been working with it, it isn't so bad. I think it should be easy for the client to make updates to their site.

    Bad things are...

    -Tables, the thing uses tables for layout everywhere, I hate this the most.

    -documentation kind of sucks

    -steep learning curve, at least for me. I'm a designer, don't know much about ASP, SQL, etc.

    1) who interns at a fucking grocery store ?
    2 ) what's the point of doing an internship crap there if you're not going to learn anything. It seems like you'll be doing all the research yourself, so what's the point ?

    :o

    1) They own 20 stores, I work in the store support center.

    2) There are only 5 IT people, so everyone does many things. Web development is one of things I'm good at, so I'm helping them with it. I also have learned alot of other stuff unrelated. It's not like interning means you're in class at a business, you have to provide something to them...

    Table design sucks bigtime....

    The documentation does seem to be a little skimpy, but there is a huge community behind it and I think they have a pretty good reputation for helping people out?
