Dolphin 7 General

As expected I have seen a ton of posts at Boonex Unity regarding Dolphin 7. From how do I do this, to this don't work, or this is broke, etc. Some things you just aren't going to be able to do or make happen. This is the case with any script. I have yet to find a script that does everything that everyone wants it to do with a click of the mouse. You either do what you can in the backend / administration panel area, or get brave and start dipping into editing the files or the database. One of the drawbacks of editing and changing files so early in the game is if Boonex comes up with a Dolphin 7.0.1, which they usually do, then you could potentially loose your work, or have to re-do it.

Dolphin 7 has changed a bit over the previous version in terms of file and folder structure, as well as database structure. Some of it is the same concept. However, it is a matter of figuring out where exactly the file or code is to apply or make changes in Dolphin 7 now. Because of this it will take some time to go through each and every folder and file.

There is so much that I would like to do with Dolphin 7, but it is going to be a slow process. Oftentimes when I start testing or working on things I come across something unintentional that needs to be fixed or worked on. So I get a 2 for 1 type of deal I guess you might call it. In the process of working on something it leads to a sort of setback.

At any rate I guess what I am trying to say is that Dolphin 7 is so new it is going to take everyone some time to work out a few of the kinks, or to polish and fine-tune it.

I have come across a few things that I would probably call minor, but should be considered or checked out. I am hoping to post some of the simpler ones soon.

So besides dipping into this new Dolphin 7 more, I have a number of things to work on here at this site in terms of features, layout and design, and more. One step at a time is all anyone can do.

Anyone out there with an established site that you are upgrading to Dolphin 7 that is indexed by the major search engines should also take a look at this page:
Upgrade Instructions from 6.1.6 to 7.0


You will find a set of Important Rewrite Rules on the page that you should apply to your .htaccess file to instruct the search engines that your content/pages/etc. have moved to a new location. Otherwise, you risk duplicate content that the search engines frown upon, and could get your site penalized or possibly even banned.

If your site is brand new you shouldn't need to worry about these.
