I recently posted a Dolphin 7 Tutorial about hiding or removing the Welcome to the community on the homepage promo area. So I figured why not add a short tutorial about how to change the actual text.
You might change it to something a little more catchy that reflects what your site happens to be about. You can always change it later if you come up with something better, or if you want to add something to it.
This simply involves change a language string text in your Administration panel area. There is no editing or modifying page code or anything like that, and it would be difficult to mess up. It will however, write the changes to your database.
Login to your Dolphin 7 Administration.
On the left hand column find and navigate to:
In the center of the page find and locate the "Manage Keys" area.
Find the filter area and enter "welcome to the community" (without quotes) and check the Apply box.
You should see _Welcome_to_the_community (System) with an edit link next to it.
Click on the "edit" link.
A little window or prompt will open.
Change the "String text for English language:" to whatever you want it to say.
In this example I have entered: My Site or Slogan!
Then, just click the "Save" button.
Now just visit your homepage and/or refresh your homepage for the changes to take effect.
Original with Welcome to the community!
After changing it to My Site or Slogan!
If you want to change it just go back to the Dolphin 7 Administration panel and edit the _Welcome_to_the_community (System) key again.
As you can see there's not much to this one and it only takes a few moments to change it.
At the time this Boonex Dolphin 7 Tutorial was posted the current version is: Dolphin 7.0.9
