About XMod Pro

What is XMod Pro?

In a nutshell, XMod Pro is a development tool. With it you can extend or completely replace other 3rd party modules, build custom tools to manage your website, and just about anything you can imagine. But more importantly, XMod Pro allows you to get started fast, generate immediate results and later tweak, modify, or revamp your solutions as you learn more about HTML, CSS, Javascript and SQL.

What You'll Be Building

We'll be building a simple yet robust classifieds application that will allow end users the ability to post Ads. You'll learn how to create an administrative interface to manage sellers and Ads on your site, and we'll even break away from DNN Core messaging and create our own solution that will resemble iOS messaging. Nearly all of the features of XMod Pro will be covered, enabling you to easily adapt what you've learned into your other projects!
