This is a highly recommended version that includes fixes for social sharing and YouTube video embeds.
Additionally, 7.1.6 closes a reported security vulnerability, making it an urgent “must have” update.
Competition in social networking space is tough. Users have all the options in the world and are ready to move on to somebody else's site if they face a tiniest obstacle on yours. It's getting harder to sign them up. And #1 make-it-or-break-it, sign-up-driving, first-impression-creatin g component of a social network platform is, of course, the sign up form. And not
Facebook is 11, Twitter is 9, BoonEx is 14. In human years that means that online social networking is already mature, sophisticated and proven. It is here to stay. People get it and like it (no pun intended).
Today we are launching Social Software Wiki - community-edited repository of documentation, tips, answers, reviews and comparisons of various social software products. It's not just for DolphinPro - it's for any popular social software product.
In DolphinPro 7.2 development we are particularly focused on improving overall usability of the platform. Quite simply, we want end-users to be able to enjoy networking and sharing instead of trying to figure out how the site works. And the most crucial "driver" of good user experience is, of course, navigation. We spend a whole lot of time figuring out
Trident Beta 2 is released. This update will automatically push to all active Trident-based sites that have auto-updated enabled. This is the cool thing about Trident - when updates comes you don't have to do anything.
Next major version of our flagship product - Dolphin Pro 7.2 - is under active development again. We can already see that the process is vastly different from the way we did it before. Improvements and fixes are not just progressing from 7.1, they also stem from Trident (our resident lab rat).
There is no Beta or Alpha version available yet
Your fresh-out-of-the-oven social network is up and running. Hosting server optimised, friends invited, initial marketing campaign launched, coffee is still hot and... TA-DA! The first member joined! Name is "Prudence", wants to "meet nice people", and... WOW! Another one! Girl again... posting in blog already... something about designer bags..? WTF!?! Before the day is out your server is bogged down
Comments can make or brake engagement on a content-focused social network. Mobile traffic overtakes desktop traffic on social networking sites. Getting comments to look and work perfectly on mobile devices is crucial for social software platform like Dolphin. Let's talk about what would constitute the most elegant, user-friendly, efficient, secure and engaging commenting system.
We had a brief talk about Bootstrap today, again. Every now and then the lure of pre-cooked CSS elements takes our attention, and yet we keep resisting. I've mentioned Bootstrap before and that it doesn't work for us because of UI inconsistencies, but I thought maybe we could use the lego-pieces without necessarily doing an "all-bootstrap" cookie-cutter site. And so we
This is both sharing and an ever-open question. While building Trident and recently updating BoonEx we have gained a good deal of experience and insight into how web-software can be built to make websites "mobile-friendly". Conventions are all still far from definitive. Mobile web is that new frontier that has already gained strong mainstream end-user acceptance, while developers and technologies
This is the last "alpha" release of the Trident platform. Next one will be a beta, which means we won't be adding any more new features until final release. So, between now and Beta it is the last chance to squeeze in some new functionality or even changes in existing features. Feel free to share your ideas in comments.
Our new platform, now called Trident, is getting very very close to beta release. We anticipate perhaps one more alpha before it happens. In this update we're bringing quite a few improvements as well as general remming from Dolphin to Trident.
The name of the new platform has been bouncing back and forth quite a bit lately. Well, we thought we'd test your patience once again, hopefully cementing it once and for all. We are renaming Dolphin U to Trident. Moreover, we plan to move Trident downloads, support and discussion to another site soon. BoonEx will only be focused on Dolphin
We are getting a lot closer to the feature set that we plan for initial release of Dolphin U. This update (alpha 9) is a significant and very important leap forward. Most notably, Dolphin U now has a new Video Transcoder, which has already been used in the new "Timeline Videos" feature. So, you can upload videos to Timeline and
It's that crazy time of the year again! Deepest discounts happen this Friday and eager shoppers storm participating stores. Apparently, at least in US it can actually be dangerous to shop during back Friday. Online shopping, however, is as safe as it gets and we are happy to bring forward our once-a-year offer...
The new Video Transcoder provides powerful features and very simplified interface for developers. Working with video is as simple as working with images using Images Transcoder. Converted files are automatically stored it in the storage engine.
It generates .mp4 and .webm videos to support HTML5 video playing in all modern browsers:
Work on Dolphin PRO is resuming alongside with Dolphin U development. As we've announced earlier among other things Dolphin PRO will be getting a responsive design overhaul. There are many ways to make website interface "responsive", though. In Dolphin U, for example, we are experimenting with more unconventional, but compact main menu and adaptive popups, while pages content relies on either
We have already done some work planned for Dolphin PRO 7.2 and outlined some of the key improvements, which will be actively worked on as soon as Dolphin U Beta is released. Today, we'd like to share our ideas with you. BoonEx community can be very insightful when it comes to discussion of Dolphin features, so we decided to bring
