Inventua Shadow

The Inventua Shadow Module for DotNetNuke presents a read-only copy of a module from another tab. This allows the user to share content and settings between tabs.

Acknowledgements
Webstone Technologies have a Shadow Module with similar functionality developed by Jeremy White. The Inventua Shadow module is not based on the code from the Webstone shadow module, and has different functionality then the Webstone one - The Inventua Shadow Module allows you to share icon, cache, personalization, alignment, color and border settings (and the Webstone version does not). We developed our own Shadow module because we needed the extra functionality, and we've released it because we think others might benefit from it, too.

Shadow is Free!
The Inventua Shadow module is available at no cost. Most of Inventua's DNN modules are available on a try before you buy basis. You can download them freely from Inventua, and try them out for as long as you like. If you are happy with the product, you can buy it at SnowCovered.
