Uploading a licence keyfile

The iFinity News Articles Provider uses a stand-alone Licence Keyfile.  This is a signed XML file that contains details about the licensed domains or DotNetNuke instances.

The Licence Keyfile is obtained after visiting the Licensing page and filling out the details of the product and other information.  It is emailed to the contact details provided.

Once you have a licence keyfile (either trial or 'full'), follow these steps to complete the licensing process:

1) Log onto your DotNetNuke installation as a 'host' or 'superuser'.

2) Go to the Admin->Portal Urls page, and click on the 'Module Providers' tab

3) Click the 'Change Provider Settings' link under the listing for 'iFinity News Articles Friendly Url Provider'.  This will load the Provider Settings page for the News Articles provider.

4) Click on the 'Licence Details' tab to show the current licensed status of the News Articles Provider extension.

5) Upload the keyfile (licence email attachment) by clicking on the 'browse' or 'choose file' button, then click on the 'upload' button once the licence keyfile has been selected.

6) The new keyfile should be loaded.  Review the licence details to ensure that the licence is correctly uploaded.  You can then click the 'Return to Providers' button to return to the 'Module Providers' tab of the Page Urls page.

The new keyfile will overwrite any existing trial or other licence keyfile loaded for the News Articles Provider module.  

The News Articles Friendly Url Provider licensing process is entirely separate from the Url Master licensing process - but they do use the same basic methods.  However, a fully-licensing Url Master module with a fully licensed News Articles Friendly Url Provider will contain two separate licence keyfiles.

You can run the module without a valid licence, but it will go into 'demo mode' and a yellow message will appear at the top of each page the provider is configured to use.
