Installation & Activation

Installing skin at Host level

Dixit Installation is same as any other standard Dotnetnuke skin Install.

You must be logged in as host/Superuser to install new extensions. Navigate to Host > Extensions and select "Install Extension Wizard" from action menu.

Watch the videos below to quickly install the skin on your DotNetNuke Site.



Note: If you copy the exact same installation (files + db) to the production server then you can activate skin on your dev server, you will not get any licensing issue. You can also use the skin without activating it as it will never expire on your localhost with a portal alias that begins with http://localhost.

Installing skin at Portal level



The only possible way of installing the skin at Portal level is to manually copy the files from package to Portal folder.
  • Extract Resources-Skins.zip at portal level (/Portals/PortalId/Skins/Dixit/)
  • Extract Resources-Containers.zip at portal level (/Portals/PortalId/Containers/Dixit/)
  • Copy Mandeeps.DNN.Modules.Licensing.dll and Mandeeps.DNN.Skins.Dixit.dll (package > bin/) to your site bin/ folder.
