Dear developers, designers, web-masters!


If you're working with Dolphin.Pro, either creating extensions, adapting it for your project or modifying it for your clients, please consider forking it from our GitHub repository and submitting pull requests when you make improvements. 


Bug fixes, UI enhancements, language corrections, optimisations - are all very very very welcome. Dolphin.Pro is a social software, so it must be a child of social coding. Join in!

I think your github repository is missing files.
Please could you specify what exactly is missing ?
I downloaded a copy from github for a fresh install to test. On permission page it was showing few files were missing..mostly flash.
With same setting 7.2 official works fine but not the github version.

The following files and directories have inappropriate permissions
Elements Current level Desired level
media/images/classifieds Not Exists Writable
media/moxie/files Not Exists Writable
media/moxie/storage Not Exists Writable
flash/modules/board/files Not Exists Writable
flash/modules/chat/files Not Exists Writable
flash/modules/photo/files Not Exists Writable
flash/modules/im/files Not Exists Writable

Made an issue on GitHub:
It should be fixed now:
I think he just told us to go fork ourselves
Is forking different on GitHub? I am use to software forks such as the fork of LibreOffice from StarOffice. In that case, LebreOffice is independent from StarOffice and takes the application down a different path. Can you set up forking on GitHub to prevent someone that has forked the application from offering direct downloads of the forked Dolphin Pro? If the answer is yes, then I have no worries but if the answer is no then this causes worries for me. I think Dolphin Pro should stay under see more the direct control of Boonex and I worry that allowing forking on GitHub (which I admit I don't have understanding of how GitHub operates) will result in a multifarious Dolphin.
Why no answer to my questions on forking?
Below is the legacy version of the Boonex site, maintained for Dolphin.Pro 7.x support.
The new Dolphin solution is powered by UNA Community Management System.
