This past weekend I discovered just such a product. At first, I was pretty skeptical. I mean, I normally pay $50.00 or so per theme when I put up a DotNetNuke site and here is a product that will let me create very nice themes that I can use in BOTH my ASP.NET based sites AND my WordPress based sites for just over 3 times that price.
I received the following question a few days ago but I’ve been so busy with billable work that I just haven’t had a chance to answer it until now. Actually, I’m still busy, but I hate letting these questions go for too long.
“Right now I am working on a project where I have to screen a user. This is a multi-step process. At the end of the process I store the data back to the system. Currently, I am storing all the options a user will select in a session variable and then finally using them at the last step. Can you please suggest a better way to store this temporary data that does not require using a session? This type of situation comes up a lot. We’ve used multiview to get it working. But this does not seem to be viable in all situations.”
