How to Add Chat Rooms to Your Dolphin 7.1 Website

Hello and welcome! In today’s blog I will show you how to add chat rooms to your Dolphin 7.1 based site. Before we begin, we need to install the chat 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 it by clicking “Chat” on the main menu bar of the site. Chat rooms in Dolphin 7.1 are added from the user side of the website and not from the admin.
