Basically I am here to learn things, and to report any bugs I encounter as reported by my server. I want to use Dolphin much like the old MySpace was used, back in the day where they allowed the users to customize their profiles, and Dolphin provides that to some level. I also want to see what module recommendations there are for the kinds of things that I have in mind, and to learn some fixes for problems I encounter, I have a few now that I have installed Dolphin such as the "folders" module is not loading when I add it from the Control Panel. So I need to learn all that I can, and I suspect I might have to suggest some new module ideas if I find that I can not realize the vision I have at the moment to make something like the old MySpace.
I tried in the past to use such things as Oxwall and Elgg, which is pretty easy to install into XAMPP and get running. However when you try to use these with servers Online such as through Byethost, etc, they will not connect to the database or they will not get past the setup page for the cron setup. However Dolphin does not have such hangups. I now have my own servers and I host a site that sells sever space called Nebula One. which is where I have Dolphin installed, so I can go up a level above the hosting Control Panel if I have to.
I think the problem with Oxwall and Elgg is that they were mostly developed on XAMPP with people using the TaskScheduler on the PC for the cron job and so when you go to install them online and go to set up an actual cron job the real thing will not work with these installations. Or else its hard to do. My suggestion is that the folk behind this stuff needs to redo these things so that you do not have to have a cron job to initially install them, where that can be added after they are installed. However from what I can see of Dolphin is that not only is it easy to install it has lots of stuff in it, and beats other Community Social Network CMS hands down. So I am well pleased with the idea and concepts of Dolphin.
