This Tutorial will show you how you can spruce up the login/logout process. Add a little mystery, humor, spice, or something special that you want to point out to your members. The possibilities are almost unlimited. Just use your imagination.

The following steps will show you how to change the message your members see when they login / logout of your Dolphin 7.1 website.

You can easily change and spruce up the message they see in a matter of seconds.

To change this login to your Dolphin 7.1 Administration Dashboard and go to:

-Languages Settings

In the "Filter" section enter: _Please Wait and click check the "Apply" box.

Filter: _Please Wait

When the results are returned click "Edit" for _Please Wait (System).

Please Wait Language Settings

A window will open. In the "String text for English language:" change the original Please Wait to the message you want your members to see when they login or out.

Be sure to scroll to the bottom and "Save" the changes.

Save Language Key

Now try logging in and out of your Dolphin 7.1 website to verify the changes.

Here is an example of the original Login/Log Out message:

Original Logout Message

Here is what it would look like after changing it to "I Think I Can...I Think I Can!

Edited Logout Message

This one is very simple and only takes a few moments. You can go back and change it any time you want. Just enter _Please Wait in the filter area and click the "Apply" button, then click the "Edit" link again and make your changes.

You can spruce the Login / Logout message up as much as you see fit. You can add images, or an image/text combination.

See this Dolphin 7.0.x tutorial for additional information and details about how to add images, html, and styling to the Login / Logout message

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 both loging in and out.

I am sure you can come up with something a little more appealing and exciting than just the default "Please Wait" message though.
