Hello and welcome! In today’s blog I will show you how to use the “Shoutbox” module with your Dolphin 7.1 based site. Before we begin we need to install the module. A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7.1 base modules can be found here.
Once we have the module installed we can access the admin options by clicking “Shoutbox” under the “Modules” menu on the left side of the screen.
From this menu we can control the number of messages to display, the update time and a few other options.
When the module is installed it automatically places the shout box on the site’s homepage. To enter a message a user just types in the input line under the box and hits enter. The message is displayed with the user’s avatar and the date and the time the comment was entered.
Done! Until next time, happy social networking!
