Hello and welcome! In today’s blog we’ll take a look at the new Dolphin U Studio. The studio is basically the administration area of the latest version of Dolphin.
To enter the studio simply access “www.yoursite.com/studio/” and enter the user name and password you used when you installed Dolphin U.

Once inside you will see icons for all the available options and modules. In the top left corner of the screen will see a 4 directional arrow. This is used to move any of the icons you see on the screen.

The next icon beside the arrow is a star. It is used to show any favorites you have set in Studio.

This is a continuation of the PHP coding articles I have been writing. This article covers a very important basic in PHP development, escaping data. Everywhere there is a heavy PHP development that requires inserting information into a Database, if it is scripted correctly you will see that this information/data is more than likely escaped. Escaping data is very important to maintaining the integrity of what goes into a database.
Golden Rule: Any data that is not filtered or escaped and is sent via means of someone else on your website is considered tainted. Let’s take a form submission for example. Jack Johnson fills out a contact form with his name, email, description and subject and pressed SEND. All of this text is considered tainted until escaped/filtered. Hackers just love to use contact forms for SQL injections and is an age old trick to gain access to areas of your server.
