I know its a rather strange type of comeback to my long-no-post and long-ignored blog, and you know what, I was really not busy all those days AT ALL, really no..... just the lazy me, but sure its not going to continue like that cause I have some interesting posts coming about JQuery and DNN of course which is currently the main focus for the next month or so.

Now to the subject, over the past 2-3 months, I was looking for something that should have been too much available to every1. But I have to really dig into websites and apps to get it really.

What I was looking for were the DotNetNuke starter kit for VS2005 and above. But I could not really get it. Whatever you google, say "DotNetNuke 4 project templates" or "DNN4 starter kits" or whatever. I surely would have tried above 20 searches, and yes I found really good sites, and groups talking sense, but at the end of the page, I got nothing near to what I was looking for. It was totally strange for me, I could not believe all my efforts were going in vain and I was doing so much just for a starter kit.

Consider this page for instance: http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Community/Blogs/tabid/825/EntryId/453/DotNetNuke-4-3-Starter-Kit-and-Item-Templates.aspx

which is an official DNN page and it is all about the starter kit, but the linkfor the download provided: http://www.dotnetnuke.com/About/Downloads/tabid/125/Default.aspx redirects to the official DNN Download page. But this page even is not featuring any DNN starter kit downloads.

I was just going to lose faith over this but after lots of idiotic efforts really I finally got it. But to make life really easier and faster for you guys, I am sharing..........
