I think Im around 365 days now and its been quite a journey.
I came in knowing absolutely no php at all and minimal html besides using Dreamweaver.

I have been setting up the site for the whole year and Im glad to say that in the last week it has finally gained the functionality I imagined for it from the beginning. Its taken a year, not because it wasnt okay out of the box (Boonex installed it for me), but because I wanted my own cosmic MySpace.
Finding the right mods and experimenting with see more their functionality, and then upgrading from 5.6 to 6.1 - well - it all takes time.

Anyway, I agree with ICED that some questions may go unanswered, but the community is really very helpful.
As are Boonex too - but I wish they had a dedicated staff of about 6 people JUST for support !!

Like many other things on the web I think the problem comes when we want things to happen to our timetable. Even more than normal life I find that web interaction just doesn't run to our timetable. Once I learn to let go of that and even plan for it in business related matters - then I am a lot happier and less stressed :-)
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.
