Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) October 11, 2012

Developer of superior DotNetNuke modules, PackFlash, has just released version 4.0 of their Constellation Suite of Integrated DNN modules. This newest version of Constellation introduces the PackFlash JSON API. Using this API, developers are now able to access the data behind PackFlash software to build powerful customizations.

A core component of PackFlash modules for DotNetNuke is the centralization of publishing content into a database, allowing administrators to dynamically display that content in multiple layouts and various locations. Data is pulled from these tables and refreshed to display in specified locations. Using prebuilt methods, developers are now able to retrieve data from these PackFlash tables to integrate AJAX functionality and javascript front end development.

The PackFlash API integrates nicely with Knockout.JS for AJAX driven front end functionality. This allows website visitors to interact with the website in real time and allows developers to build more interactive and engaging websites.

The Constellation family of DotNetNuke modules from PackFlash consists of eight closely integrated DNN modules. When the whole Constellation Suite is in use, a site´s content administrators have sophisticated publishing and managing capabilities for a wide variety of content. The complete Constellation Suite includes the following DNN modules: Video, Image Gallery, Slideshow, News & Blog, Friendly URLs, Mega Drop-Down Menu, Comment and Events Module for DotNetNuke. Modules can be purchased individually or as part of the Constellation Suite on the DotNetNuke Store.

“This API vastly expands the capability of DotNetNuke developers to build an app-like experience for their clients´ websites. Websites are no longer online brochures. Customers and visitors are expecting more, and the PackFlash modules can help developers acheive that.” -Chris Risner, PackFlash CEO.

PackFlash 4.0 also introduces extensible attributes. With this feature, website administrators can create customized fields for increased complexity and specificity among PackFlash´s DNN publishing modules.
