Ok, I'm sure I'm not the only one that is 'VERY' disappointed in the DotNetNuke support by Themeler. I was a huge fan (and owner) of your previous product, Artisteer, and used it all the time. I recommended it to anyone using DotNetNuke because it was so easy to create themes/skins. I didn't have to be a designer to come up with some pretty impressive Dnn skins.

Now you have a great new product that is less than useless to DotNetNuke developers. You talk about working hours to make it compatible with v8 (and now v9) and have decided it's not worth your time. What about the working hours that we, as Dnn developers, have to put into making themes/skins. Without a tool like Themeler, 'OUR' working hours for design are through the roof.

I don't think it's right that you just arbitrarily decided to exclude one of the most popular Asp.Net CMS packages because it may take you a few working hours go make it compatible. I think your management has very poor decision making skills and obviously don't understand the potential market. I feel I've really wasted all the money I've spent over the years purchasing your product (Artisteer). I purchased a subscription to Themeler in anticipation that you would eventually update your support for Dnn. I'm thinking that was promised in your original text but now I know I wasted my money on a product and company that sees fit to abandon a previously loyal customer base.

Just an FYI...From the DotNetNuke Wiki page...

DNNSoftware.com has over 1 million registered members as of November 2013 and is used on some 750,000 websites globally.[27] Support for the Community Edition of DotNetNuke is provided by community members and developers can participate in the open-source project on GitHub.[28]

Hi,

Sorry about that, but the implementation of the DNN support for versions 8 and higher will take much more than a few hours, maybe there was a misunderstanding in this point. The issue is that we have originally created the DNN 7 support and we had 10 users or a bit more using that feature (while DNN 8 was not released). So we do not see that Themler is used by the DNN users so we have no plans to implement the DNN 8 or higher support now.
In any case, we'll consider your feedbeck for the future considerations.

Sincerely,
Hella

Is there anyway to get access to all of the DNN developers on your site? I think you need to send out an email to all of them to get a fair assessment of what they all think. Telling everyone to vote on a post that not everyone will see is not going to give you the net result you're looking for.

Hi,

We do not have such possibility, but we gathered the information from the log files about users using the DNN export.

Очень жаль, что вы не планируете поддержку DNN9. Только собрался переходить с плана PERSONAL на BUSINESS именно для того, что бы была возможность создавать DNN темы, а получается, что смысла в этом нет вообще ( Joomla не интересный движок, для меня). Придется и дальше пользоваться PERSONAL лицензией, так как план BUSINESS не несет ничего интересного. Хорошо что не оплатил переход на более дорогой тариф.

DNN BUMP UP make sure you get your VOTES in for every DNN issue, enhancement request so we might get ONE :)

Trying hard here to continue support for themler it is really very close and I think DNN is ready for themler.

You should have a list already of stuff wished for it would be great to see some love here someday. If your trying to kill it let us know so we can move on from here we would appreciate it. You should really probably make a module that works inside DNN and allows you to build the pages right within DNN. Why not?!

Think of those sales if that module hit the market.

Thank you for at least reading this!

Hi,

On our Purchase page it is mentioned that only DNN 7 version is included in the package.
Sorry, but we do not have plans to support new DNN versions in the future. Please follow the news in case something changes.

Just wanted to put my 2 pence in. I followed you dev since release. All was very promising. You say that you made it 7 compatable. How many dnn users run dnn 7? Do you run Windows 2000 or WinXP..... NO. Point is measuring who is exporting as no one is going to dev themes for dnn 7. Also https://blog.dnnsharp.com/end-of-dnn-7-support-announcement states dnn 7 is end of life and that was announced 30th Aug 2017.

I will say it's a shame there is no interest in the platform and maybe it's easier to support buggy php cms but thats my option. I was looking to purchase today but it looks like here is my answer to where the product is going.
