How to Install a Module in Dolphin 7

Hello and welcome! Today I am going to show you how to install a module in Dolphin 7.

Let us begin by logging into our Dolphin admin menu. Once inside, click the “Modules” link under the “Tools” submenu. 

Select the module

Select Module

Next, we will select the module we would like to install. For this example, we will pick the sounds module which allows members to upload MP3s and other music files to their account. Place a check next to the desired module and click “Install”

If the installation was successful, we should see “Installation of: Sounds Done” under the “Operation Results” heading

Success!

Success!

If instead you see “Failed”, you are able to click the plus sign beside the error and see what caused the installation to fail. Normally this happens if the module you are installing has dependencies on other modules that need to be installed first. If this is the case, simply follow the steps above for those modules and then return and install the one that failed.

Now we need to recompile the language strings for the module we just installed. Place a check mark next to the newly installed module and then click “Recompile Language”.

Last but not least, we need to review the settings of the new module and make any changes that are required. You can find the module under the “modules” menu on the left side of your admin panel. Once you select the module, you will find the options at the top of the active window for the selected module.  The options for most modules include moderation settings and other restrictions to prevent abuse.

That is it! We are done and our members can begin enjoying their new functionality!
