Using inline style attributes
Many developers often use inline style attributes within an HTML markup, which is one of the biggest problems they create for the end users. As such attributes can’t be overridden with the CSS, users will have to edit in markup, use javascript or any other tool. So, avoid using inline style attributes within the static and dynamic HTML markup of a module.

• Not filtering the user input
Of course, users never input wrong or unsafe information, but assuming that all users will input safe details and processing them without filtering could impose a huge security risks and make your DNN module installation, server and network insecure against attacks. Therefore, never assume that user input is safe and always filter them before processing ahead.

• Using Non-Semantic markup
Instead of using CSS, if you use HTML markup for layout, it won’t serve semantic cues to the browsers as to the intended purpose of content. One should keep in mind that semantic markup is not all about using tables for layout. Its initial purpose was to give semantic meaning to text in order to let the browser render the text in a most appropriate way. It is advisable to use CSS instead of non-semantic markup.

• No script tokens
Instead of using {ObjectQualifier} and {databaseOwner}, if your module SQL scripts use “dbo” for the object owner, it will become will be difficult for you to install a module in the environments where the SQL connection uses a different database owner. Moreover, if your module scripts don’t use {ObjectQualifier} prefix for the database objects, then it won’t be possible for you to use your module within shared database environments. So, avoid using “dbo”.

Make sure you never commit any of the mistakes discussed above in order to make your DNN module development successful. So, which mistakes you’ve committed? Share your opinion or views in the comments…!
