In today’s article, I will show you how to use the “Groups” module with your Dolphin 7 based site. Before we begin we need to install the module and two dependant modules (“Orca Forum” and “Files”). A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7 base modules can be found here.
Once we have all three modules installed we can access the admin options by clicking “Groups” under the “Modules” menu on the left side of the screen. From this screen we can add a new group of see the current groups.
To access the new group we created simply click “Groups” from the sites main navigational menu and then click the group of your choice.
From the home page of the group we choose we can add pictures, sounds, videos, files, manage fans, invite members, broadcast messages and much more!
This is also the area where a potential group member would join the group.
Done! Now your members will be able to start groups that are relevant to their interests and also increase activity on your site!
Until next time, happy social networking!
