Tutorial

Here is a pretty simple one you might want to change or edit sometime. The message that is displayed near the top part of your Dolphin web site when a member logs in or out.

The default Dolphin login and out message is pretty simple, basic, and generic. I am sure Boonex does this because it works for all sites no matter what the type.

If you want a more personal login and log out message displayed you can change this fairly easy in your Dolphin 7 Administration.

Just login to your Dolphin 7 Administration and navigate to:
Settings
-Language Settings

In the center of the screen or page find:
Manage Keys
-Filter: text box.

Enter in the text box "_Please Wait" (without the quotes) and tick/check the "Apply" box.

Once the results are returned you should see something like:
"_Please Wait (System) Edit.

Click on the edit link.

Dolphin 7 Languages Settings



A window/box will open and appear.

Just change the "String text for English language:" area to your desired login and log out message, and Save the changes.

Example:

Dolphin 7 Language String



Which would look like this when someone logged out:

Dolphin 7 Login Log out Message



Standard html is allowed, which means you can include images so it's time to put on your thinking cap!

You can upload and store an image in your hosting account anywhere. Maybe in the main directory like:
http://www.yoursite.com/login-logout.jpg

Or, you could create a folder called images like: http://www.yoursite.com/images

Then, upload your log out image such as:
http://www.yoursite.com/images/login-logout.jpg

Here is a snippet of code I tested just for a quick example:
<img src="http://www.dialme.com/logout.jpg" style="float:right;"><font color="#000000"><strong>Thanks for stopping by. See you soon!</strong></font>&nbsp;&nbsp;


Note:
Keep in mind that the login and log out message is a shared key so you will need to come up with a message that works for when someone logs both in and out. You probably don't want to say: "See you next time" when they are logging in. You would need a universal message that works for both.

Be creative and use your imagination. I am sure you can come up with something a little more unique that represents your web site.

As I mentioned this one is really simple, and it only takes a few moments. Not too many people pay much attention or notice login and log out screens, but there are a few that do. So why not give them a little message, or just say thanks.
