Getting Started

dnnGlimpse is a simple module which simplifies installing Glimpse into your DotNetNuke installation. The module automatically makes all the necessary web.config changes to enable Glimpse.

Enabling Glimpse

During installation the module creates a new page under the host menu.

The Manage Glimpse page shows the dnnGlimpse module and allows you to control Glimpse directly. Whenever you wish to turn on Glimpse, just navigate to the Manage Glimpse page and click on the Enable Glimpse button. This will store a special 30 day cookie which enables Glimpse.

Using Glimpse

Once Glimpse is enabled, you should see a small icon in the lower right corner of your browser window.
