Performance Tuning DotNetNuke Modules with ANTS Profiler

As I have mentioned in past posts here on this blog and via other communication channels I strongly believe that ANTS profiler which is offered by Red Gate software is a must-have tool for all software developers.  Most recently with my day job I have been working with profiler a lot more than usual and it prompted me to re-visit the concept of profiling within the constructs of a DotNetNuke installation.  I've had many individuals with questions before about, is it possible to profile a DNN module, or how do you set it up.  Well this article will walk through all of the steps necessary to profile a single module within a local installation.

How To Get Design-Time Support for DNN Controls

 As everyone that is a regular reader of this blog is already aware of I am a big fan of the WAP development model for all DotNetNuke development projects.  Now, one of the most common issues that individuals have reported to me is that "design-time" support is not there for common DotNetNuke user controls that are common to integrate with custom modules.  The controls I'm discussing are the DNN Label, Text Editor, and Url Controls.  Luckly though it is VERY simple to get full design time support for the controls and this article will show you how to accomplish this!
