DotNetNuke Admin Advanced Configuration Settings

The DotNetNuke Advanced Admin Configuration Settings page comprises 6 tabbed pages

  • Skins & Containers
  • SMTP Server
  • Language Packs
  • Authentication Systems
  • Providers
  • Optional Modules

Skins & Containers

The Skins & Containers are covered under their own item here.

SMTP Server

If you are going to use a mail server, other than the website server to send emails the mail server for the DotNetNuke website is configured in this sub-page.

I have found it better to configure the email account to be used an hour or two prior to entering this information. This allows the mail server settings to finalise before the configuration to be tested. It may be possible to use an email account which is send only and configure it as no-replies.

Language Packs

The Language Packs have their own dedicated page also, details are here.

Authentication Systems

The DotNetNuke authentication systems cover:

  • Google
  • Live
  • Twitter
  • Facebook

These systems can be used to provide the authentication login for the website. This is separate to the authentication used by modules to authenticate with services such as Twitter and Facebook.


DotNetNuke has a number of providers which can be used in place of the default. most of the providers available by default are variations on the navigation, for example the Solpart Menu Navigation Provider. Installing the providers allows them to be selected instead of the default

Optional Modules

The functionality of DotNetNuke is extended through the use of modules, governed by the website host/superuser. It is likely that there are no modules available under this sub-page.
