Just to say I really like the news module - with the wealth of options and available settings it really does meet all the requirements (and more!) that anyone would want in maintaining a news driven website presence. One of the great benefits of your site is the ability to really test drive the module in a live setting with full administrator rights to really get a feel for how the module works.
Great functionality in a really great module!
After performing an extensive search of news related modules for DNN I finally decided to contact Orizonti about NukeNews and NukeFeeds. The staff at Orizonti was extremely helpful and promptly answered all of my questions allowing me to move forward with little hesitation. The result is a toolset that will allow us to publish News, Press Releases, Traffic Alerts and site updates in a fashion that we dictate. NukeNews provided every requirement we were looking for and will allow us to manage these tasks at the lowest level possible. With the core DNN modules, we were forced to use high-level technical resources to manage minor updates and our 15 Press Releases a month - clearly something was lacking. With NukeNews though, maintenance can be handled easily by our web site administrators freeing up more expensive developer time for more complicated tasks - and press releases can actually be managed by our PR Department without technical input! The investment was extremely modest compared to what we were prepared to spend. Both tools were purchased, downloaded, installed and configured in a matter of a few hours. The use of these modules saved an estimated three weeks of development time and allowed me to trim two weeks from our already aggressive project schedule (which is a big deal by itself in my book). All this coupled with the fact that we are able to implement a more mature module (fewer
bugs) will undoubtedly reduce maintenance down the road. This was a true win for our organization. Thanks Russel and thank you Orizonti!!
