Welcome to DNN

DNN is the newest State of Montana web content management software.

DNN runs in a web browser, so agencies can distribute control of their web pages to the employees who truly own the content, and not just those with the technical ability to work in HTML.

DNN (formerly called DotNetNuke) comes from the third party DNNCorp. Among the more than 500,000 government and business organizations that run the ASP.NET-based content management system are NASA, the United Nations and Bank of America.

From its freeware base DNNCorp offers licenses up to the Enterprise edition (Evoq) license held by the State Information Technology Services Division which includes elite telephone support, complete source code and SharePoint document integration.


Active Directory Authentication: The DNN CMS provides Single Sign-On (SSO) using the state Active Directory (AD) credentials, which offers a high level of security, authentication, and policy control. You leverage your existing investment in Active Directory, while reducing the amount of support calls.

Web Site Security: DNN tracks all modifications to your web site and provides a full audit history. Extended page, module, and folder level permissions allow you to provide CMS users with granular rights to view and edit your web site within the CMS. The Security Center continuously feeds relevant alerts to your administrators with links to download relevant security patches.

Granular Permissions: Within the CMS, users and groups can be given permission to: view content, add child pages, add modules to a page, copy modules from one page to another, delete content from a page, export a page template, import a page template or manage page settings.

Application Integrity: Installation files are checked against the standard release files. Any inconsistencies which may impact the reliability of your web site are reported, including files that are out of date or which have been modified.
