About DataDisplay Minimize


This module can display all the records from a predefined database table or custom query on your website. The column names from the table become the tokens that can be replaced in the fully customizable module templates, so you can show the table data exactly the way you want. Results can be split into multiple pages using paging.
The module can also connect to an external database to get data there (MS SQL and MySQL).

Module settings

Connection string:

A connection string should look something like this: Data Source=; Initial Catalog=DotNetNuke; User ID=DnnUser; Password=1A2b3C4d

Source table:
Select the source table to export the records from. If a connection string is entered, the module will retrieve a list of tables from the external database.

Which version to install

DataDisplay comes in 2 versions. Normal installation and a HostOnly installation because the module does NOT take Portal ID’s into account. This could potentially be a security risk on shared hosting solutions so when the HostOnly version is installed, only Host account users can change the settings of the module.


These are the available tokens that can be used in the Custom Query. These are default DNN values and cannot be used in the templates.
