RESX files

Oct 12, 2010 at 5:03 PM

I just finished porting the open source project Gallery Server Pro to a DNN module. It all went well, and I am able to share a common code base between the two versions. There was one glaring issue, though: DotNetNuke does not process RESX files for language localization. Rather than refactor all the resources in the original project to something that is compatible with the DNN syntax, I used Brandon Hayes' resx build provider, but that only works when the app is running in full trust.

I would love to see DNN support RESX files to more easily migrate existing projects to DNN modules. I created an official request several months ago, but there doesn't seem to be any interest. If you think this would be useful, please vote it up.
