Tutorial

Once you have successfully installed Boonex Dolphin 7.1 you might be wondering where all the fancy features that everyone keeps talking about.

They are all there in the administration panel you just need to pick and choose the ones that you want to use and then install them.

To install a Dolphin 7.1 module login to the Administration Dashboard and then navigate to:
Modules
-Add & Manage

You will find a list of all the available modules that you can install in the "Not Installed Modules" section. And, yes there are a lot of them.

Simply check the box next to the module that you would like to install, and then scroll down and click the "Install" button.

Install Photos Module



After that, you should see "Operation Results" near the top of the page. If you click the little plus sign (+) to the right it will expand and open where you can see additional details.

Photos Successfully Installed



If the particular module you are trying to install says: "Failed" in the Operation Results, be sure to click the plus sign (+) to see the complete details, which will tell you why it failed.

Usually if it fails it's because the module you are trying to install requires another module to be installed first. If this happens to be the case click the plus sign (+), and it will tell you the other module you need to install.

Now, go install the module it tells you that you need to install first. Then, install the module you were originally trying to install again.

Membership Module Failed



In this particular screenshot example the Membership Module failed. When I click the plus (+) sign I can see that it says I need to install the Payment Module first.

I would install the Payment Module, and then come back and install the Membership Module.


Now you can find the new module in:
Modules
-Module Name

Simply select the module you just installed, and find the settings link on the top right side of the page. Then, configure the settings for the module the way you see fit.
