DNN Platform

DNN [Platform] is great for organizations of any size who wish to have a robust CMS to manage their site. DNN is not ideal for a small site that is better suited to a super easy to user interface such as Wix. DNN [Platform] is plenty strong enough for enterprises and large entities.

You can create a website very easily with WebWave without feeling like a programmer or understanding website design principles. When I need to create a landing page, I can do it with a few clicks, and I know I will have a professional site. You can buy domain names and host through WebWave; having a secure website is great and easy.

Pros

DNN Platform

  • Very easy to use CMS - Ease of use is paramount with CMS products to minimise on support calls. Also the template structure of pages ensures that content editors cannot inadvertently corrupt the layout of the page.
  • Powerful application framework - The existence of APIs for all functionality within the CMS provides limitless scope in terms of developing bespoke applications which sit within the CMS.
  • Commercially supported option available - For larger clients, the comfort factor of having a direct line to the developers of the application is a big selling point.

  • The UI is a bit complicated but contains all the features and functions needed.
  • No coding skill is required. We can focus on design. And the design process is quite fun.
  • We can adjust and control all the elements of the web easily with WebWave. And I like the richness of the elements available in WebWave.

Cons

DNN Platform

  • Out of the box, it has some modules, but not enough unless you do a paid version.
  • The support is a bit slow.
  • The menuing can be confusing and terms used a bit strange. which makes training difficult.

  • The only thing I would change is to add more payment options in the case of the store (it is about plug-ins). PayPal and cryptocurrency would also be useful.

1. The support person does not seem to understand the issues, and seems like they go off to talk to somebody and revert back every 5 to 10 minutes. It takes up a lot of time.2. There is a lack of reading material to address simple issues like changing the website name in the dashboard, pasting a code, etc.

Alternatives Considered

DNN Platform

My experience with Joomla! was over six years ago so a lot could have changed. However, I prefer DNN over Joomla because DNN offers more modules and a better administration user interface.

WebWave

WebWave has an extensive feature set and the price is a great bargain. Its functionality overall is better and allows the end-user more control over their overall design. The included editor and design review features are top-notch and extremely useful. I'd highly recommend it to any web-developer, but it could also be great for an end user with some design experience.

Return on Investment

DNN Platform

  • DNN helps us win bids on projects through the improvements the community has done over the past few years; we were ready to scrap it all together but it has made great strides
  • DNN's community has come back and is actively working to improve and expand the capabilities of the cms
  • on a negative note, the confusion between evoq and dnn has caused us headaches

WebWave

  • It has allowed me to build the websites I envision, rather than the best I could build given the limited tools that most site builders offer
  • It has allowed me to build the sites faster
