Dolphin 7.0.2 Released

The Boonex team have just released the not so long awaited 7.0.2 release. It seems that they have taken community comments about a shorter release cycle on board and trimmed down the releases to enable them to be released one a month. Got to admit, i was a little skeptical that they would pull it off, but its nice to be proven wrong. Lets hope that this is the shape of things to come.

The 7.0.2 release addresses a number of bugs and enhancements. It also removes the callbacks to the Boonex site to prevent the issues seen during the recent DDOS attacks, where many users were locked out of their admin panels.Probably the most important bug fixed is the bug that prevented profile fields from being updated, happily, this is now fixed.

i have already jumped in and upgraded my D7 site, and so far there are no issues.

Free Mods Released

It's been a very busy week here in the software office. Hot on the heels of the recent Flat Comments and Group Forum Posts Block mods, we have a further three - yes that's THREE!! new mods available in the store, plus a re-released oldie.

Whats more, three of the mods are free!

The first mod is a re-release of our Login redirect mod for Dolphin 6. Whilst this has been available for download over at Boonex.com, for some reason it was omitted from the store, so we added it in. You can download it HERE

Next up is Auto Friend on Join. This is another Dolphin 6 mod that has been updated to work with Dolphin 7. The Mod automatically adds a friend to the joining members profile - a bit like Tom on myspace. This mod differs a little as it will add select the friend it adds based on the gender of the joining member. It can be set  to add either a friend of the same sex, or opposite sex. Get it HERE

2 New Dolphin MODs Released

Just released two new mods for the Boonex Dolphin platform.

The first mod is a Dolphin 6 mod that changes the standard threaded comments layout to a normal flat comment structure. All existing comments are changed to the new layout, as will all new comments.

The second modification is a Dolphin 7 MOD that creates a custom block for the groups home / view page that aggregates the groups forum posts.  This increases the usefulness of the groups home page by providing all information in one place.

As a bonus, we have also included an additional mod that will show you how to add a block anywhere on your site to aggregate ALL group forum posts into one block.
