The DotNetNuke® Repository Module (RM) can be used to store a collection of files, images, links or text on a server running the DotNetNuke® framework. While RM can simply be used as an enhanced Documents Module, it can also be used as much more.
Through it’s use of a powerful and flexible template system to control the display and maintenance of items, you can use RM to provide file downloads to your visitors, or present a resource directory as a collection of links, or a collection of business cards
to provide a business directory, or an image gallery or portfolio, or even a video library with an embedded inline video player.

RM is not limited to file uploads/downloads. You can even use RM for articles, news or a simple blog. The uses of RM are only limited by your imagination.
In addition to providing you with the ability to upload and download items, RM also provides a User Rating and Feedback system. You can decide if you want to allow your visitors to rate your items or enter comments on each item. RM also institutes a comprehensive
security layer that allows you complete control over who can download, who can upload, who can rate or comment and where your items will be physically located on your web server.
