I was looking for a good free ASP.NET CMS. I found DDN and Rainbow. To me DDN sounded better option. But when I browse pages of www.dotnetnuke.com using IE 6+ it makes me ANNOYED. Why? Say I clicked the forum link
and say it takes 3 seconds to load the forum. During this time I click other IE window "X". When I come back to DDN page after 2 seconds(means DDN forum is not completely loaded yet) the IE DDN window is cramped. It shows the "X" window on it's page until
the forum page is fully loaded. My users will hate this and so do I.
No hurt feelings guys. How do u guys accept this issue?

What is DDN?

DotNetNuke is the largest Open Source Project for portal framework. My installations is very stable and response time is great!
If u are looking for a CMS then DNN perhaps not is the one u are looking for. DNN is more of a portal framework and developers plattform than a CMS. Although u could develop or buy a CMS module and apply it to your DNN installation.

Portal will do my job just fine. But what about the issue of
www.dotnetnuke.com I have mentioned? Doesn't that bother anyone?

If I don't like the layout of Microsoft.com, does that mean I shouldn't use Visual Studio? If we don't spend as much time and effort on DotNetNuke.com, it is because we are working on the product itself. Sure we could improve DotNetNuke.com but to me that
is not the sole metric that should be used to evaluate DNN. You can look around the web at thousands of DNN sites. Some show incredible designs and blistering speeds. Others are completely unuseable. The limiting factor is not DNN but the developer creating
the site. Case in point: http://www.nrl.com/ serves 15 million pages a month running DNN. Clearly DNN is not limiting the ability to serve lots of pages very fast.
If you don't want your site to feel cramped or perform slowly, then spend your time configuring your site with a skin you like and take advantage of all the performance tweaks that have been covered in dozens of threads here in the forums.

Site layout and the issue I am talking about are different things. The DDN IE window not only shows previously browsed window overlapping the DDN page, but also shows any immidiate previous windows program I viewed before DDN page is loaded fully. IS THAT
A NICE THING DUDE?
Since I did not see this problem in other DDN sites I suppose this may be a DDN version issue or hosting issue. Now you can try to fix the prob in DDN home site so that others won't complain on this issue.
