Creating a Template for Dolphin 7.1

Hey all,

I am back!

Took a while off the blogging and freelance dolphin developing world to take on a new gig in China.

At any rate, here I am. I thought I would start with a couple Dolphin Tutorials on customizing your Dolphin web site.

Here is the first one (Part One: Create a Dolphin Template) where I just introduce the basics and get you headed in the right direction. While you're playing with that I'll be putting together part two of build a dolphin template for you.

Make sure you check out the tutorial I did on fixing that birthdate problem in dolphin community. Although that one might go out of date rather fast when the boys at Boonex add the fix to the next build of the Dolphin Community Software.

Happy community building!

As always if you have any questions or issues with a Dolphin community get in touch through here or my Dolphin Community Youtube Channel

Back to freelance developer in Toronto

In my job as contract web developer here in Toronto: I get about 100 - 150 emails a day. Some, from potential clients other's from previous web development clients. There are a few, however - that ask the same questions. Over and over - With that in mind, I have put my tutorial hat on again.

Just before the holidays, I uploaded a new video on YouTube - a Dolphin 7 Tutorial entitled: How to install Dolphin 7.

Dolphin (by Boonex) is an amazing piece of coding genius. I have been working on the Dolphin platform for about 4 versions - wow... Soon I will be the oldest (web site) freelancer in Toronto.  At any rate, Dolphin is a great 'starting point' for an online community. What I mean is: no one wants a 'cookie cutter' community, but building your own online community is a common trend with current web business entrepreneurs and webmasters.

With Dolphin you have all of the core function you could ever need - regardless of web site niche. I encourage you to check out the Dolphin 7 install tutorial and let me know if I can answer any questions about the software or the install.

I am always looking for ideas for more tutorials: So keep those questions coming in. I reply to mails mostly in the morning with my cuppa!

While I am the Dolphin topic: I highly recommend some research into both your chosen niche and online communities in general. 

Take a look at this great title. This will answer some questions, you don't even know you'll need the answer too: if that makes sense...?

Check it out anyway.

I wont leave it so long between posts: got a little busy with freelance work and neglected my blogging duties. 

See you soon 

PS: I do know this is alot like my previous post - about the (Boonex) Dolphin Tutorial Videos I posted on YouTube. You will also notice, I use my job description alot in the blog text: A freelance web developer in Toronto. 

I was reading a great article (blog) about creating backlinks for your web site: It talks about ways to use blogger blogging to increase backlinks. In this post, I am testing their concept.
