Modules developed by members of the DotNetNuke core team are also available to be installed as additional modules. The following sections will help us to become familiar with these modules. Later in this chapter we will also look at modules provided by third parties.
The Announcements module produces a list of simple or HTML-formatted text announcements consisting of a title and a brief description. Options include a Read More link to a file, tab on your site, a user of the site or other site, the ability to associate an image, ability to order the items, announcement publish date, and expiration date.
