FINALS! Dolphin 6.1, Ray 3.5 and Orca 2!

Andrew Boon posted 29th of April 2008 in . 383 comments.

After 7 months of active development and testing we are happy to announce Dolphin 6.1 Final, Ray 3.5 Final and Orca 2 Final. Right along comes SmartPro 2.

Dolphin 6.1 - Spunky

Dolphin 6 raised the standards bar in the community software industry, but we had a dream... ok, a few dreams. While 6.0 has already been a tremendous success, we still have requests for some major features and really wanted to bring even greater flexibility and power to the community site building process. Today, we are proud to report that the dream has come true.

Dolphin 6.1 boasts a very long and broad list of improvements, features and fixes, however, some of them are exceptional and often unique. We’re presenting features that you are very unlikely to find in any comparable software in the industry.


Profiles Fields Builder
- a simple, yet sophisticated and powerful system that lets you seamlessly design your database structure for member profiles, join form, search pages - all with access levels and with the elegance of Dolphin AJAX-based drag-and-drop.

Pages Builder - it is only now that we can call Dolphin a 100% BUILDER. With the new Pages Builder, you wield unmatched control over your site pages by simply constructing them using Blocks (which, in turn, you can also sculpt the way you want). This includes setup of page width; number of columns of blocks and their size; adding new custom blocks and even creating whole new pages yourself!


Flexible Site Width - everyone has their own idea about the perfect site width - so here you go... In Dolphin 6.1 you can adjust site width for the entire site or for individual pages instantly with a simple slider that makes the whole process a breeze. You can even go for 100% width and impress your community with fluid site design.


New Comments - comments is where 50% of community site activity takes place, and Dolphin 6.1 is the absolute best when it comes to comments handling. Fully ajax-based, with unlimited nesting, delayed editing and instant voting - just that - the best.


Google Love - Dolphin is now completely search-engine friendly. All content pages have friendly URLs, which dramatically improves your chances of becoming indexed by major search engines. This is a major improvement and should improve your traffic. Be careful with this one - Google may think that too many URLs have changed and may actually penalize your current site. So, we recommend putting permanent redirects from old URLs to the new ones to avoid problems. This may be shaky after the update, but in the long-term or for a new setup - the new links bring a tremendous advantage.


Mac Love - It looks like Apple is on the right track and the number of Mac users is rising rapidly. Dolphin 6.1 has received the proper Mac-compatibility treatment and testing.


Couple Profiles - now, properly implemented and integrated into the system - couple profiles returns with a glorious come-back to Dolphin.


Fast And Powerful - just as the name suggests, Spunky loves challenges. In 6.1 we stressed attention to speed and scalability. Vast amounts of the code were rewritten according to the new standards, and now you get software capable of running on a clustered server setup handling large online communities. Dolphin is small enough to be managed by just one person, and big enough to power the “next MySpace”.


Hacker-Safe - finally, security issues have been addressed. Dolphin has passed all rounds of Hacker-safe certification and all vulnerabilities and exploits have been patched. Moreover, this is now an ongoing process for BoonEx - we’ll keep checking and updating - for you to feel safe and secure.


Much, Much, MUCH More - articles posted by users; member-login pop-up; dynamic RSS loading; new homepage promo system; voting spam prevention; invitation-only registration; HTML in blogs and more, more, more. Tons of tickets have been implemented, bugs fixed and improvements applied.


Almost no file has remained untouched. Most modules have been re-written and migrated to classes. Integration with Orca and Ray has been improved. All-in-all - it’s a major upgrade, highly recommended for all current Dolphin users and raising the bar again for BoonEx programmers.

Dolphin 6.1 is available for download now at BoonEx.com.

Ray 3.5

The Ray update is no less spectacular than the Dolphin update. It’s a huge advancement - starting from the features side and going on to the core structure and up through the Media Server.

Ray widgets are now being built on the new Flash 9 platform, which improves the back-end and presents a whole new set of opportunities. In 3.5 we improved all widgets, but Video Chat and Video Messenger are practically re-born.


Video Chat - now with the long-awaited 1-to-1 private chat rooms; tabs for chatting in multiple rooms simultaneously; an integrated help system; new settings pane; addressed messages; whispers; password-protected rooms; room status text; “who’s viewing me” tracking; profile preview; floating, resizable and full-screen videos... and a whole new layout. How’s that for a new version!?


Video Messenger - all new layout; status messages; files transferring; integrated Video and Music launcher; help page and settings for just about everything - video, sound, fonts, skin and smile-sets.

Ray 3.5 is available for download now at BoonEx.com

Orca 2

Orca is our modest, but mighty forum script fighting on the saturated ground of online forums. Fear not - Orca is not going to give up. The new Orca is still 100% AJAX-based , but now it packs multi-lingual support via language files; improved search-engine-friendly URLs; better integration with Dolphin and much faster loading speeds.

Orca 2 is available for download now at BoonEx.com

Next...

This update is not going to slow down the BoonEx team for even a day. We’re already looking into the future, planning has already begun and we can now promise you that the next round of updates will be absolutely revolutionary.

Cant wait for the upgrade package! this is amazing!
VictorT
!!! Upgrade pack from Dolphin 6.0.0005 -> Dolphin 6.1 with full Diff can be expected roughly next week.
nurke
Will previously purchased licences for dolphin 6.0.0005 and Ray widget work with th upgrade or we have to buy it again?
laluvirtual
more than a week that u say upgrade instruction 6.0.0005 to 6.1 will release but until now i can't see where it is?
mikesta
My deep respect. Seems that there is a new generation of boonex out and scaring the rest of the world :)
araaaa
Hello Congratulations on this fabulous release.. Been looking forward to this day for a while now..
GREAT!!

We will get it onto our production servers by mid day.

CyberXing
annebel
Great job !! I'll start exploring it right away.
edmond
hi i have a question.i sell translation in french .i need remade it all or just upgrading and correcting few things?congrat the team ;)
AndreyP
Yes, any lang-makers must rebuild packages of lang packs, just because we change a little structure of localization languages.
annabel
Structure has been completely changed. I can't use my dutch language file anymore. I have to start translating all over again. This will take days :-(
AndreyP
No :) look here, this is common way (first some strings of any lang addon), just change it to like this:

INSERT INTO `LocalizationLanguages` (`Name`, `Flag`, `Title`) VALUES ('ru', 'ru', 'Русский');
SET @lang_id = LAST_INSERT_ID();

(here just way to russian lang that I prepared)

so just change this, `LocalizationStrings` table not changed, don`t worry
gregorscharff
great to hear this congratulations from me to for your great work at this all with your amazing team . kind regards
jerry79
WHY?
Hello Boonex, thanks for your great script. But pls tell me why you offer the new release so early, without elimnating all bugs in trac? I saw, that you just moved a lot of tasks to the version 6.2. But you announced all of this features for 6.1 in the past. Then you said you got some problems with expertzzzz. For this you had to move the date a few weeks later. But i or maybe some others also expected some features from 6.1 which you announced. Now it seems like we have to wait for 6.2, cause see more 6.1 was -in my eyes- only released so soon and with moving some tasks, to get the crying crowd quite. But thats not a good way.
So what should i do know?
Wait again few months for next release?
Dont get me wrong, i love your script and all you work, this is what you can read in my posts since im member. But this way of getting the members satisfied...i dont really like. Let them scream, cry or whatever. Just get these things which you announced for new release finished and stable. Cause now we are going the same way as in 6.0.

Im sorry for this, but this time im not satisfied. But great job indeed.

Jerry
annabel
Indeed, one major problem was the time zone and this has been transferred to the next version.

This should be priority for people using Dolphin outside US.

Anne
Vespen
nice stuff! ))

btw - can't download by Opera browser - download doesn't popup at all (( Only by IE7...

Congartulations, tovarisci!!!


I sincerelly hope this Final will function way better!!!

Still cannot use A/V Chat with Boonex RMS and also not with my own install of RMS 3.5 ....

Hello!

Provide us URL of your site for beginning.

lalakis
Leonid i have the same problem with A/V Chat with Boonex RMS
http://www.mikroentypo.gr/epsilon/chat.php
LeonidS
Hello lalakis!

You should first re-generate license for Ray, only after this actions your server can interact with our new RMS 3.5.

Regards
Stuart
Hi my server has a program called suPHP installed. This is supposed to make the server more secure. What it does is disables php commands in the .htaccess file and alters CHMOD 777 files to 755. This is also supposed to give you more control over your php.ini file.

Will Dolphin 6.1 be able to work using suPHP?? if not what can I do?
LeonidS
Hello!

Dolphin has many files with 666 permissions and folders with 777. You should check how your program will react to these issues.

Regards

Congrats and well done :)
nurke
I would like to know if I download the new version of dolphin and Ray, will my ad free licences work?
way2n
yes!! will the adfree license work? and what about all the themes and mods?
AndreyP
This is depends of mods .. but seems that many of mods need to merge with sources of last version of dolphin (6.1) .. just because many-many things was changed to best way
esteem
dolphin adfree licenses isnt working with this version, i tried inputing my license but still the ads is not removed.Also ray just keep connecting but never loads.
annabel
Mine aren't working anymore but I saw that they were changed in my licenses to 'free version', although I received licences for ad-free long time ago.

This is a pity, but nevertheless I can live with it.
bdebouck
first off let me say congrats things certainly have come a long way. can you tell me how to fix or change this in the orca forums [L[Forums Index]]
lalakis
You need to compile the language. Frrom the admin -->pugins-->orca forum--> Forums Index ( Manage Forum | Reported Posts | Compile Languages: en )
press the blue compination of letters standing of its of the languages you have into the brackets
MichelSwiss
Thank you for this new release :-)

This is not a bug report, just a comment...

http://www.boonex.us/ads/entry/double-room-to-rent
In the block Users Other Listings the same event already displayed is shown as another listing. In fact, as this member has only one ad, will that not be better to display "No other listing for this user" ???
AndreyP
Yes, it possible,
We will take it into consideration for the next versions.
MichelSwiss
http://www.boonex.us/blogs display the Message "Your current membership (Non-member) doesn't allow you to _view other members' Blog."

Missing _view other members' Blog text string for this language key.
AndreyP
New key - We will take it into consideration for the next versions.
so about
at
http://www.boonex.us/blogs you see the Message "Your current membership ...
it impossible, it just possible of you disable FreeMode (just because new membership actions was added :) )
MichelSwiss
Hello Andrey :-)

As usually you are right :-) Something changed with the blogs. Not logged in, I don't see this "Your current membership..." message any more :-)

But have a look for example here http://www.boonex.us/blogs/posts/arwin2
In the header of the left main block the name of the member is not displaying any more... Just " 'S BLOG - POSTS" ...
AndreyP
Ok, I found issue (interesting why peoples begin perform tests only after release? :) and it was not noticed during betas? :) )
so, was fixed, will available in next update
MichelSwiss
http://www.boonex.us/search.php?online_only=1

Under the thumbnail of the online users, visitors can see just a single link "Send eCard"... IMHO this will be better to show all the links (IM now, Greeting, Contact...) even if hiting these links will redirect to the "Your current membership (Non-member) doesn't allow you to...".

At least this will show to the visitor the advantage he has to subscribe...
AndreyP
This is just because at Boonex.us enabled 'Free Mode', at your site you can disable to non-members send eCards
MichelSwiss
Here too thinks changed :-) The links Greeting and Contact are now visible for visitors :-)

I tried the eCards mod some months ago... The mod itself is very nice. Only the ecard itself is quite horrible :-)) I forgot this mod quickly.
I don't know if you worked on this ecard since I tried... IMHO this mod will be a must if the card is displaying inside a Dolphin page and not just in some ugly HTML page. In this case this mode will increase the traffic on the site.

If you have 2 minutes to see more spend, maybe could you have a look at http://www.100suisse.com/ecards_en/index.php
If you think that it can be intersting to you, I can send you the script I used ;-)
AndreyP
Ecards for 6.1 ready :)
it located in SP package
mikesta
Just another problem, the whole forum has missing Langugae keys or something else.

Everything is show as :

[L[Search The Forum]]

or something else.
Still testing.
HikeMaster
I'm getting this too. Please Boonex team let us know what to do about this.
lalakis
Go to the admin --> orca forum and compile the language.
you will see the line:
Forums Index ( Manage Forum | Reported Posts | Compile Languages: en )
The same do for groups/orca/
maddy1
@mikesta

You must klick in acp /plugins / orca forum on en
maddy1
Groups not work.

I have create a group and when i click on group title nothing happens. Anybody else with this problem?
AndreyP
are group title have url:
http://omango.ac-dating.de/groups/entry/test1
?
all works fine - just open this
maddy1
ok group opens now after many minutes but with this error in header

AndreyP
We see that you customize your site .. so

All mods and lang files available at Expertzzz.com should be updated and merged to be competible with the latest Dolphin 6.1 version since a big part of Dolphin's code has been re-written.
maddy1
I have comment out now line 419 in bxdolgroups.php. That works for those who have the same prob but theres another prob. In groups forum the language is like this [L[Topic subject:]]

Where i can compile the orca groups language?
lalakis
As admin go to /groups/orca/ and do what you did for orca (forum)

Опять 25 !!!
Почему не работают лицензии для Ray Free ???
Они то сформированы, но на моем сайте пишет что модули не активированы!

Бунекс - сделайте нормально активацию!

Доброго времени суток!

В который раз сообщение об ошибке без какой-либо информации о сайте. Сообщите URL Вашего сайта и хотя бы одну лицензию для какого-нибудь виджета.

Hello lalakis

There is no "en" compile link.
lalakis
Maddy En stands for English.
If you have change the langs into the [ .. ] in the admin of orca you will have some language (in blue color) hit this link
Nighto2007
Hii

thank you so much for this amazing work and fast

I'm waiting for upgrade from 6.0005 to 6.1

best regards
Rawaf
MichelSwiss
This is really just a little detail... Using IE7, on the Home page http://www.boonex.us/ , in the box QUICK SEARCH, the bottom of the Search button doesn't display. Just a few pixels...
maddy1
lakalis i have do this in orca admin. Thats works fine. But not in groups/orca. There is no en to hit. Yes i have look for it logged as admin.
ImplantIntel
Hi, Maddy. I had a difficult time figuring out where to compile groups/orca, also. It isn't located in your admin panel, but you do have to be logged in as the admin.

Type http://yoursite.com/groups/orca, or if that doesn't work http://yoursite.com/groups/orca/#group/.htm

You'll see Forum Index (reported posts| compile language: en).
maddy1
Next problem. In forum rss box it loads and loads and comes nothing. Test Topic is there. See here www.omango.de/index.php
AndreyP
You try to load next RSS:
http://omango.ac-dating.de/get_rss_feed.php?ID=19&member=0
this URL don`t loading at all, try yourself

this is problem why your RSS block not loading
lalakis
Hi Maddy :)
If i understood, you are speaking about the box with the title ForenEinträge in your index page?
(this is the only box where it looks like a query is in progress, sorry i can not understand german).
If you are speaking about this, as i saw there is nothing in your forum. Andrey will tell you more, but i thing that your problem will be fixed, if you go to the admin of orca (admin-->plugins-->orca forum--> manage your forum. Just create forum and group.
And, i thing, rss see more will start working after there is something in your forum, else you will have the message there is no post or something like this (i can not remember exactly who is this message in english).
I hope i help...
MichelSwiss
Another detail, which was already reported, regarding the comments order... As for me I would prefere the newest comment at the top of the list...
AndreyP
We think about it, and come to conclusion that new comments at bottom are logical right,
try to imagine how will display replied comments here? :)
not standart ..
MichelSwiss
OK, maybe something I don't understand...
But I prefere the non-standard logic you are using for this Unity blog. Latest post on the top then latest answer at the bottom :-)
dBoon
When threads and comments get so long it is not easy to remember who said what...is there any way for a member to tag/ bookmark one that is relevant so we can find them easy again...as things are getting more and more complex and I know I read something somewhere and takes an hour to find it again. Something like a tag/ favorite/ list/ bookmark/ perhaps some numbers for the post and list them or abstract from it or subject in our profiles so we can look there first?
esteem
why is the boonex banner still showing on chat help even on adfree ray widgets ?Isnt it suppose to be removed as we paid to remove all boonex banner?
MichelSwiss
As it is much more easy for a basic user like me to edit/delete/disable anything than to create new fields/options/etc...

Could you please make Dolphin to come with all profile options already made ???
I mean hair and eye color, height, religion, spoken language, etc... searchable, matchable... and displaying in the profile page blocks.

The users who don't want to use these fields will delete them easily.

Or maybe I'm the only one to have difficulty to create so many fields and options see more which was existing in Dolphin 5.6
LeonidS
Hello!

It was one of the main condition of Dolphin 6.0 - community oriented software. So we didn't plan to paste fields like Hair color to 6.1 too.

Regards
MichelSwiss
Hello Leonids :-)

If I'm the only one to use Dolphin to build a dating site, please just forget my request...
If not, maybe could you do that as an SQL addition for your oldest and faithfulest customers who choosed Dolphin because it was a dating site script ???
MichelSwiss
@ Leonids

Sorry Leonids... I found pre-made lists in the Admin Panel - Settings - Predefined values :-)
I will have to play a bit with this feature ;-)
Fields builder looks powerful too, but so clear for me what I have to put in all of these fields (LKey, LKey1, 2...,Extra... )
Good job guyz. Congrat.

Hi here is the url and url to phpinfo http://filipianalove.com/root.php .On ie7 orca is working fine but only on firefox it is showing all this code.
in admin.inc.php line 1014:
db_res( "DELETE FROM `ProfilesComments` WHERE `Sender` = {$ID} OR `Recipient` = {$ID}" );
is to delete, the table doesn't exist
LeonidS
Hello!

Thnx for note, we've fixed it. You can just delete this line in admin.inc.php completely.

Regards
aeonprime
Having this problem with forum as well. Removing this line does not solve the problem for me. Any suggestions?
jghass
Will there be upgrade instructions or is this a fresh install only. If so, can it be installed without reinstall of database? Upgrade instructions show only 6.0004 to 6.0005 as latest instructions.
Under Profile Type-->Couple there is a Mutual Couple Fields box. The 'city' field is there, but NOT the zip code. Any new fields I create are listed, but for some reason not zip code. Do not want to remove and re-create zip code since it is probably tied to internal functions already.

Hello All

have RAY-Chat AddFree no Adminconsole?

thx
koemar
Everything working only the video player does not work in this new version. (never had a problem)

Now I used a old license key and the widget gives an error "the widget is not registered" but in the admin panel it is registered. is there a way to register it with a new license key?
LeonidS
Hello!

Try to apply new AdFree key again - we've corrected this. If it will not have success then provide me via this system's email URL and admin password of your site with old license, we'll check it there.

I have same problem with the free version. Where do we go to find place to paste new license? Looked all over in admin and ray suite.

Just regenerate license and enter your domain name

Thanks for the help with the orca language problem.

One more thing, I have an Contributer License for adfree service, also the widgets, but at the bottom, thre is still a field showing :

Powered by
Orca
Interactive Forum Script
Ray
Community Widget Suite

Any idea on that?
mikesta
Seems that there is a bit a problem with the contributer licenses. They are accepted and work, but there are still Links to Boonex within the widgets, even if use the contributer ad free license keys.

Any ideas on that?
AndreyP
Regenerate licenses again (need create FAQ) :)

howdy...nice job! But I do have a question. I paid for the ad free version of dolphin, so how do I get rid of the icons at the bottom of the page? After I registered my paid license, they're still showing up.

Thanks

Are this fresh new keys? .. better try to regenerate your keys

Same problem as frigger, had to go through the code and remove them manually! any way of getting some "how-to" on that?

now you can`t remove this block manually ;) now footers are protected

Thanks Boonex Team!
I was playing with the demo and couldn´t find an option to add "upload a pic" on the join form builder.

can you specify your site page where html blocks not work?

Dolphin has many files with 666 permissions and folders with 777. You should check how your program will react to these issues.

Leonid, what kind of an answer is that??
LeonidS
Just informed about current structure of Dolphin. It has files and folders with permissions which can be alerted in your suPHP program.

On the profile page, the photo block of users who doesn't upload any profile photo is empty... The default male or female doesn't display.

Stuart
suPHP (which is installed on my Apthost server) prevents php instructions being enabled within .htaccess. This is apparently for security reasons. It also prevents CHMOD 777 permissions changing them to 755. This (according to Apthost) should not be a problem.

The solution apparently is to rewrite all the php instructions within .htaccess as a php.ini file. Failure to do this will cause a internal server 500 error.

Go here if you want to know more. https://support.apthost.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=716

Anyone? see more Boonex??

CONGRADS on your hard work!!! I wasn't able to get 6.05 working correctly, i am excited about this upgrade.

Chat Admin panel is missing from AV chat

how can you have a chat without the ability to kick or ban people?

Still no ip lookup, you need to have admin view ip so its easier to detect people/bots registering multi accounts suspended username is not going to keep bad members from rejoining in another name, ip lookup is the one tool needed to help combat bad members

Thanks for all the hard work.

Ufortantly I have found what apears to be a bug for couplesprofile photos.

It seems that when you upload photos for a couples profile that only the first photo uploaded is viewable.

You can click on the other thumbs and the title for the photo will change but not the photo.

Zorro............

I take this back. Once you set the primary couples photo it is no longer an issue
I got this white or blank page after installation, I found below errors in my error log cpanel:

[client XXXX] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 11520 bytes) in /chroot/home/XXXX/XXXX/html/inc/classes/BxDolGroups.php on line 1602

Hello!

You should increase memory_size_limit of your php.

Hi LeonidS, Thanks for your reply.

Could you please help me how to inrecrease the memory_size_limit in php. Appreciate ifyou could provide specific steps.

Im using Linux server.
Issue solved. For those of you who use shared hosting the quick solution would be to add a line in .htaccess file located at your root folder.

hi everybody again.
I need the upgrade from 6.000.3 to 6.1.
Any Idea where I can find it?
Or what are the usual upgrade procedures without the upgrage patch?

Hello saman.

You must upgrade from 6.0.3 to 6.0.5 and than to 6.1 i think.

Upgrade is not available now you must wait.

under /admin panel/Builders/Fields Builder/DateOfBirth have some problem!!

i am try to change the Minimum between 1 to 99 age,but it didn't work!
Charisma
BUG FOUND.... i still cant get this to work.

Ok.. for the 3rd time... how do I properly create profile fields with text dropdown selection. so they dont have "_" infront of the fields and so the default first word is used.

This works perfectly in v5.2 but not in this version, so how can I manually do it please?

For example
Choose your Hair Colour:
Blonde
Redhead
Brunette

Shows up as:
Choose your Hair Colour:
"Select it!"
_Blonde
_Redhead
_Brunette

This see more is the last thing I have to fix to get a working copy. What is the best way to do this PLEASE?
AndreyP
I recheck this functional, so:
In current version you just should add these new keys
_Blonde
_Redhead
_Brunette
in existing languages of your dolphin

in future update I realize auto-adding this lang keys and provide output via lang keys
Charisma
Text Selection (Drop Down) Fields
&
Text Multiple Selection Fields

Still not working correctly.

Half my site is made from these fields..
Hair Colour, Weight, Height, Ey Colour, Marital Status, Ethinicity etc...
ALL Require the use of Selection Fields!

"Select It!" is not a good default
and the program adds "_" to the beginning of the fields

As mentioned above.

Could someone please help me with this.

Much Appreciated :)
Swingadmin
HI Charisma

All you do is go into admin area.
Under settings you should se pre. def. values

Add your field
hair

and add all the options

But do not start your index with 0 start with 1

Then the 1st index eg. blond will be the default
field value.

At field manager in the content box just add
#!Hair and dolphin will you your pre def values
for that field.

A easy way to check this is to creat a profile field language and in content add
#!Language and save
you will see the see more def value for that is then english if you check the pre. def. values under settings you will notice that the Language field start with index 1 and not 0
0 meand select that.

Hope that helps
Charisma
Yes that helps, thankyou :)

IS there a way to remove "Select It!" from that list? as it adds itself in by default.

Can this be edited out somewhere?

Also is it possible to make Country Default to "NZ" instead of Select It?

Thankyou for your help so far :)
MichelSwiss
NZ ??? You mean like "Kiwi" ? :-))

This probably an other way, but as for me I would search in the database and edit the needed fields from there...

No adfree anymore?

I just thought contributers would have it adfree and linkfree as it was until now. Why should I just pay for the contributer account ?

I think there is something wrong here, isn´t it?

Hello mikesta!

AdFree is still available, and licenses from previous Ray, Orca and Dolhpin will work in current release. If they don't work plz send us FTP & Cpanel info, and all your lcienses to suppor@boonex.com. We'll check this case.

The Profile Picture always appears at the top of Column 1 in these profiles.

Is there a way to move it over to Column 2?

or make it an object so it can be moved around the page?
MichelSwiss
I checked in the admin demo and I cannot find any Profile Photo block in the Profile page builder...
I think that the position of this block is defined in templates/base/scripts/BxBaseProfileView.php
line 82: function getBlockCode_Topest($iColumn)...
AndreyP
Yes, this is unmovable blocks (of profile info and proto):
getBlockCode_Topest
.. just because was decided to keep it at topest , and another blocks can be moved , but in bottom then picture(s) block
.. but you can change functional to realize it :)
Charisma
Thanks Guys, i'll try play around with it on the templates. Thanks for a point in the right direction Michel.

Thats ok, it looks pretty good where it is Andrey,

its just i have pretty custom templates, so moving it over to the right side would help.

Thanks Guys.

If I create a Custom Block that is on the Profile View, is there a way to put an HTML Item in there?

In the previous versions I would just add the HTML code to the Language file, but this is no longer possible,

Is there a way to create a custom Item that can contain HTML etc?

Oh.. and is there a way to add a different RSS feed into the Profile Page... for example if I have a Jobs RSS Feed and want to add it in, which is the best way to do this?

Many Thanks,
I love the new version see more :)
AndreyP
In all pages if you put HTML blocks - you can use any embedded/other HTML here (see button HTML here)

next - RSS - you can use different RSS at different pages, and several RSS at one page (if need)

In the profile page, because of the diaporama effect it's quite difficult for the member to know for which profile photo he/she is voting...
Maybe some CSS could "illuminate" the selected thumbnail ???
AndreyP
You still able to switch voted picture by clicking at small thumbs at bottom - You will see that descriptions changed and you can vote here :)
Disable this feature you can in Admin panel
MichelSwiss
Pictures often have the same description like "Me"... Anyway how to know which description is attached to which picture ???

Is that not possible to make a colored border to the active (selected) thumbnail ???

Anyway that's not really important ;-)
HikeMaster
Two items: When you disable the shoutbox through the admin panel advanced settings, the shoutbox does not go away. You still have to uncheck Visible for Guest and Members in the homepage builder to get it to go away.

Also, sometimes when you go to the homepage, the rotating images are very small in the lower right corner. You have to refresh the browser to get them to appear properly. Doesn't happen all the time, just once in a while.

Thanks for your hard work!
MichelSwiss
Go to Admin Panel - Builders - tab Homepage and drag the Shoutbox item in the inactive block area
HikeMaster
One more thing, in the builder, when you uncheck "Visible for Guest and Member" then you hit save, it works, but you get an error. the error is a little hard to read because its written over the builder blocks, but it says something like: Warning: Implode() function Bad Arguments in blahblah/inc/classes/some file on line 183. You get this for every block that you uncheck and save.

Checked in demo Admin...

(The post just below was an answer to this one)
MichelSwiss
Maybe I don't understand that you are trying to do... but if any block don't have to be visible to anybody why not to drag the unwanted block to the inactive items area ?
HikeMaster
Sure dragging blocks around works fine (although it seems to be slow and cumbersome). But if, for example, you're going to have a check box that says "Enable Shoutbox", then the function behind that check box should work, shouldn't it? And if you're going to have toggles for visibility options, they should work, right? They did in 6.0! So I'm basically just trying to give the great Boonex team some help in creating a cleaner app. ;)
MichelSwiss
Hello HikeMaster :-)

You are absolutely right :-)

You can disable this feature if you don`t like it (in admin)
This feature was developed in time after RC, so we haven`t many time to test it.

The old version just worked when I installed it. This one seems to have some problems. Any suggestions??? This was a fresh install.
LeonidS
Hello!

Usual reason - missing mod rewrite module in your server. You should install it or disable all options in admin panel->permalinks section.

I know absolutely nothing about this but I recently launched an older version and was delighted to see that the front page allowed for a Flash image. Does the new 6.1 version still feature this Flash image? Is there a demo I can view anywhere? Thanks
AndreyP
In 6.1 we have better - JS promo ;)
so you never will have any problems with any navigation menus

Hi - How can I change the promo block height please?
LeonidS
Hello!

Find in inc/design.inc.php file next string:

$( '#indexPhoto' ).dolPromo( 6000, 0.28125 );

and change value 0.28125

How to upgrade users membership type manually ?This feature is found in 6.0 which can be done via admin panel but it is not in 6.1
MichelSwiss
Me too I don't find this essential feature ???
Andrey, did you move this feature somewhere else ? Or is there somewhere in the builders ???

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Also about membership levels, I cannot find any possibility to sort members by membership level. That will be very useful at least for me...

Maybe such possibility already exists and I cannot find it ?
LeonidS
Hello!

Membership adding will be restored in patch.

Thank you so much Leonid :-)

Dolphin membership setting isnt really good for dating sites and community.There isnt much way for sites to make money.Actually gold member should be able to im standard members and standard member cannot im other standards members .Standard members mail send should not contain yahoo, msn or other instant messenger id or emails from other site.Nobody would want to join a site to pay to play music or video or use chat when they can get it free and better widgets for those.So boonex team standard thinking see more before programing.

I was asking some months ago for this email address filter in any content (messages, blogs, photo description, etc...).
I think it is planned for a future release...

well all this is are the most important part for dating and community sites but i dont know why this company isnt working on this and many people have ask for this .Most of the time i see them adding and adding new features then take it out in the next version and add it back in the following version,What is the point of having so many eye catching features when the software fail to do what is required for site owners to make money?
LeonidS
Hello!

Well, then better make strict list what info must be forbidden in message composers?

Also in expertzzz.com site exist some mods with similar purposes - forbid mails or unwanted content in Dolphin site.

Boy, you leave this place for what seems like a few moments to go off to fight for just a few days in the foreign legion...and you come back to feel like you have been away for a thousand years...with a big new script and a lot of improvements! I've had to put my own community on hold for a long time now for a number of reasons but should be installing the new Dolphin etc program in the next few days on the server of a friend but he is using an older version of mysql, that he doesn't want to change. see more So at least for RayMedia Server I will be using Boonex's server. And, like everyone else, I'm looking forward to help testing it out...in what ever way I can.

In conclusion I'd just like to say, Annabel, you are looking as beautiful as ever and I always love reading your comments because for some reason I am beginning to follow the technical questions you ask or answer...but then again that may have less to do with my good looks(?) and more to do with me getting in touch with my feminine side.

Sammie, I thought you fell off the face of the earth when I didn't see any posts from you for what seemed like a long time when I was last seen around these parts. And I still love that picture.

But I haven't seen any posts from technoman here yet...and he has been one of the most positive forces here at Boonex many of us have had the privileged to see and enjoy and use his many suggestions. Anyone know where he might be? I know for a fact that he is not in Brooklyn...because that is where the French foreign legion had me deployed to find out if Bush, in addition to suspending civil liberties and canceling the November elections, is going to mandate it by law that from now on Polish Kielbasa is to be called "Freedom" Kielbasa.

Sorry, I can't add much constructive criticism on the new script as of yet. I really have a lot of reading to get caught up on here...but to both Andreys, and my buddy in pre-sales Mike, and everyone else at Boonex it looks like another congratulations is in order.

And as for the new version being released with un-zaped "bugs"...contrary to the present day view of the Food and Drug Administration, I have always felt that if the American public wants "safe pharmaceuticals"...then we should test them ourselves...instead of the populace of some third world country.

So really, there is a method to this madness of ours of taking over the world by releasing new Dolphin versions, complete with bugs, sooner than some people think they should be released...for the simple reason that the sooner the script is made public...the sooner we can all test it out to get rid of those critters and have a more "poetic script" for all of us to use and enjoy bug free that much sooner. And really, those are not such horrible dues for any of us to pay by helping in what ever way we can...by adding what ever any of us can...to this stone soup of ours.

But to who ever does read this post first...please tell Annabel and Sammie not to read any farther than that last paragraph. I don't want either of them to know that I am redesigning my cheer leading outfit because like Borat, I wanna push the envelope by seeing how loud everyone will cheer if I look pretty in pink. And of course I am talking about a pick tutu. Sheesh, I hope no one seriously thought I was going to lead a cheer...wearing pink army fatigues! ;-)

I am probably very stupid - but I cannot find out how to "regenerate" my RAY widgets licenses. I bought the smartpro package - but it wont take that license anymore.

Does anyone know how to regenerate these licenses? All I can see is that I need to pay for them again ...
LeonidS
Hello!

If you use SmartPro or AdFree licenses then "regenerate" will not help you because these packages can't work with rms.boonex.com, they should work with own rms servers.

If your Ray 3.5 doesn't work plz provide me via mail next points:

1) Exact links of your problems.
2) URL of your site
3) FTP, Cpanel and SSH access.
4) Your Smart Pro licenses

We'll investigate your problems.

see moreHi,

I can't join the site on the frontend of our script install. I get the message 'registration by invitation only'. Only have one admin account, tried sending an invitation via admin, still didn't work. Also set-up a moderator account and activated it, but can't login on the frontend with that either because I get a profile error message.

I''ve looked thorugh all the options in the admin panel a few times over but see nothing obvious that could rectify the problem!

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Greetings Fellow Lab Rats,

We thought this release might be the one for non-dating site owners but after six months of constant frustration, over $1000 in losses to crooked programmers, and a total of $2500 invested in this venture we are no closer to having our business community website online than ever before. Now it's back to square one with version 6.1. We are facing the loss of all of our modifications and Judging by the problems and unimpressive comments about the new releases one can't see more help but be discouraged.

Our advice to everyone is don't get involved with Boonex unless you have unlimited time to burn waiting for them to get it right and don't spend a dime on modifications by these so called Expertzz who operate in obscurity with no accountability unless you can afford to throw your money away.

Are they nice people? -Yes! - and will they eventually get it right? - Maybe! They are already ripe for class action lawsuits which may bring them down before they can produce a finished product and presently they aren't doing anything to protect themselves. When you place your own interests above those of your programmers and clients you are destined for failure.

I personally like Andrey and I wish them the best. I hope they make it. I think everyone involved realizes how great this could be if it were properly managed. But for now, once again, it is impossible to take them seriously.

Juker
jerry79
Just configure it a bit, so you dont have a dating site... cAnt understand you, also wanted a non dating site and realised it with 6.0...Now i want a dating site, im swichting to 6.1. But you can make what you want with this script a non dating site and a dating site. Thats the fantasitc thing on it. You only have to need some imagine, how you use the dating features inside it.
Or take the money you want to pay and get a commercial thing ;)
But for a free script this script gives you all what you see more need! Just you have to do something out of it. More basiocs you cant get.
Juker
Configuring It A Bit might be easy for some but I am the Pastor of a Church and not a Programmer. We have plenty of imagination but we don't have the computer skills to tackle a complex script like Dolphin. Especially when Boonex offers very little HELP! It's easy if you know How!

The SmartPro package is not free! We paid a thousand dollars with the anticipation of getting professional grade business software when in reality what we received was hardly more than an intermediate Beta version. We see more attempted to add the dozens of mods necessary to get our site functioning properly but crook after crook gladly took our money and disappeared.

Now we are presented with a version that will wipe out all of the mods which we did get installed and the promised two template system, one for business sites, and one for dating sites has not been included.

Once again we are faced with the decision to pay to reprogram 6.1, or gamble and wait another six months for Boonex to produce competitive business software, or cut our losses and switch to Userplane or one of the other community scripts.

I'm not trying to rain on your parade, dear friend, and I'm encouraged that your experience has been satisfactory. Apparently you are in the 50% of satisfied Dolphin users but unfortunately we are in the 50% who are getting hammered.

Juker
Bramin
Juker,

It is at least comforting to know that you are still around and reading what is being posted. I don't know how long you have been a part of this "community" but I have been for several years now. And I can sympathize with your plight of loosing over a $1000 especially since I am in that same boat. Only for what may be much different reasons.

When I started out here at Boonex...Dolphin, Barracuda and Orca were already free software to use but Ray Media server was over $300. see more So I bought Ray and 3 templates, which were $20 each, and several more mods, which were also $20 and the instillation for all of them as well which was also $20 a piece to have installed and despite whether or not the actual program, template, mod or what ever was itself free.

And to let you know what the instillation was like back then...here it is. I had ATTEMPTS at doing them by Artur at Boonex so many times that I have lost count of them. And when I say "attempts" I mean that he tried to perform the instillation repeatedly in good faith but was kept from performing them each time because I had something which I had not taken care of...usually something as simple as having my domain name pointed in the right direction. Also I was constantly wanting him to perform the instillations on some new hosting provider I had chosen. And despite all the time he wasted trying to do what would have been a very simply job if I had everything set for him...he never once complained even despite when I sent a very angry flame to him and which was do entirely to my own frustration and not to anything he was doing wrong.

And that isn't the half of it. I eventually ended up having my site installed on an extremely expensive hosting provider. To make a long story short...they sold me a bill of server goods and bandwidth that I never used and I was paying them more per month than I had paid for all of the software AND the instillations I had paid to Boonex. Meanwhile Boonex was bending over backwards to try and have the software work on those expensive asshole's server while the hosting provider itself didn't provide squat in the way of support except to say they couldn't help out(much like the assholes who ripped you off)...and despite the fact that in the industry, even most CHEAP hosting companies will say that they will help you with the installation of the software you will be using on their server.

All in all, I have probably swallowed close to, if not more than, $1500 to $2000 as well as you learning some very hard lessons. Including having my site installed again, and finally, on another very reasonable hosting provider only to have a very well meaning, and computer competent in many many ways friend, talk me into deleting the entire installation so he could learn from the inside how the instillation is to be performed and how Dolphin script works. And credit where credit is due because he did teach mer a lot of technical stuff I would not have known otherwise.

Still now I have TWO sites installed. One installed back on the inexpensive hosting provider I was just telling you about and another on a sever that is owned by an acquaintance of my computer savvy friend. But OMG I am ashamed to say that neither of them are public yet and neither of them has RMS being utilized...not even on the free server that Boonex provides to contributors and that I am entitled to use for free. But hopefully, and I know sometimes hope seems to be all we have to live on, the two sites will be going public and both be using RMS some time soon.

I could piss and moan that I should have waited until Boonex made Ray as free to use as the other software...and made the templates that I paid for free as well and provided more free mods and plug ins and waited and waited until it was also totally bug free and waited for a lot of other things as well. But I also have a another friend who is waiting to buy a computer, and has been for about 4 years now, because he always hears or reads if he waits just a bit longer...he will get a better deal. And he may very well die waiting for a better deal...as for myself, I wish that I could provide more impute here and get more guidance, as well, by reading a lot of the new information or solutions to this or that bug...or just keeping up with some of the good gossip. Like who has the most friends, who just joined and among a lot of other gossip who the fuck gets my jokes...just silly little trivial things like that. Because when push comes to shove...there really is something a lot more important going on here...than the software. But that you just have to just feel because it doesn't lend itself to any kind of "rational" explanation.

But just as an aside, Juker, I don't know why you feel the need to use 6.1 immediately. Nothing wrong with waiting another 6 months like you suggested. And I hope you hang in there! After all, bro, Rome wasn't destroyed over nite ya know! Nor will the war machine unfortunately...unless we all start throwing our monkey wrenches and screwdrivers and hammers and scythes and old TV sets and outdated CPUs and our own corpses and everything else we can find into it...because unlike Boonex's commitment to what we all envision, how ever fraught with bugs and mosquitoes and termites and cockroaches the script has been...depleted uranium's half life is 4.5 BILLION years! And there are armies EVERYWHERE working on that scatological script...in order to impregnate the Earth with it. ;-)

EVERYONE, TAKE OVER THE EARTH! SHE IS BEGGING TO FALL INTO OUR ARMS!
And damed, but if we all didn't know what we could do with the trillions they throw away...trying to embrace all the generations yet to be with the blows from nuclear arms! Bounce a check at Wal-Mart...and take them to court on the grounds they employ children and they sell stolen property...which are both true. And refuse to put razor wire at the top of the fence surrounding your prison walls...though many have already sucumed to such strange habits.

I couldn't find the place to keep Anonymous from leaving comments on other people's profile... I went Settings - Membership levels - Manage Membership Types - Non-member and there was no place where I could configure to them from not leaving comments...
MichelSwiss
I checked that in the Admin demo as I still don't have the 6.1 installed...

It seems like there is a problem for Non-member membership level...
I cannot change the default value (no limit) in the 2 first fields (Number of allowed actions and Number of actions is reset every) for any of the action type (comments post, make search, etc...).

That concerns only the Non-member membership level...
LeonidS
Hello!

Use action "comments post".

There are no limits for non-members, because they haven't ID for counter...

Of course, I'm too stupid ! :-))

Will there ever be a mobile version of Dolphin, other social sites, Facebook, mySpace, etc are all going mobile to tap into market, when will Dolphin follow??

On the profile pages of users, why is there no "Status" or "What I'm doing Now" like Facebook has? There are other social network platforms that already has this ans its only a php script thats needs writing for it.

Quizes, Applications, all these mods and extras that make Facebook and mySpace should be already floating see more around for Dolphin users and for free, not everything should be paid for.

LeonidS - in response to Hello!

Sorry i forgot some issues:

1) In admin panel =>settings->membership levels section you should disable option

"Automatic profile confirmation without Confirmation Email".

2) Better disable "free mode" in the same section otherwise membership system will be hidden in site.

Regards


found # 1 under moderation settings is this correct i disabled this option but new members still get standard membership by default

and thanks see more alot i must have missed the first response sorry. does this option work for you?

Hello!

Yes, this procedure is fine for me - your new members will be transfered to Promotional level after confirmation their profiles (via clicking link in confirmation letter).

yes it is working i see what the problem is in my admin panel it says they are a standard member but when i log in under a test user it says promotion so which holds true the user account or admin panel is this a glitch
