How to Add the Orca Forum to Your Dolphin 7 Website

In today’s article, I will show you how to add the Orca Forum to your Dolphin 7 website. Before we begin, we need to install the forum module. A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7 base modules can be found here.

The forum in Dolphin 7 is moderated from the user side of the website and not from the admin. To begin the configuration click “Manage Forum” on the “Forum” tab that should now be on the main menu bar.
