I had a strange thing happen on my site, it was just a bit weird really. I uploaded a few images I wanted to try out as covers for my site using the Artificer style function. It worked great on images called red_robot_background or yellow_banana_background, but then I uploaded one I called blackwhite_robot_background. Basically the file names identify the image. It's just easier for my to upload quickly. Anyway, the images and all the same size, with, pixels ect except the image is different. Now the strange thing, all the images showed up on my site as covers except the image called 'blackwhite_robot_background'. I went all about the houses trying to see if i copied the path wrong, nope, corrupted the file, nope. Then I change the file name to robot_background and left off the 'blackwhite' and lo behold it worked. so i changed the name back as a test and again and the image didn't show. What the heck is all this about? Do i need a tinfoil hat here or is there some kind of sensor technology that inhibits what you call the files and what you can see? I mean mine was totally descriptive and I used the image in the header for this discussion to show this, it's just black and white. So are we as a society actually banning the words black white now or do I need a tin foil hat :)

inquiring minds need to know!

I tried to plonk this simple question in the shot box, but the shout box never shows me the most recent messages, and when I try to scoll down or up it just plonks me back at message number '132' lol. So i will put my question here.

I am chaging the css on light mix on portan templet, but when I go into the custom css in the light mix settings, there is no way to save it, no button, nothing. I thought perhaps it auto saves but it doesn't do that either, so is there a save button in the custom css or do i have to do something else.

btw, its hard to create a new style/mix i just can't get htem to show up so i figured I'd go simple and just change the css of the existing bog standard mix. but nothing is ever easy when it comes to una :(


Someone PLEASE for the love of god make a 'how to make a new style/mix tutorial for dummys' and put it on youtube, you'd make a fortune and make me a happy woman at the same time

I have posted this before but no one responded, I am not sure if this is a bug or if its by design, but I have uninstalled una several times, reinstalled, messed about with other platforms and always came back to UNA because I feel it has more potential do be what I want it to be. However i cannot for the life of me get the blocks friends, followers, and following and well any kind of 'persons' block to show on the home page.

Everything else works but not the persons catagory. Its driving me mad, there must be a way because they are in the 'add blocks' function and I can add them in studio but they don't show up on the site. why is this? The levels are correct, the same as anyother block that shows, yet these don't. is this a bug?

This has been months now, a whole pandemic has passed since I first posted about this issue, yet it still doesn't work. At first I thought perhaps its an issue with my version of UNA hence the unistall, redown load, reinstall, unstall, reinstall, unistal, reinstall and on and on and on but nothing works.

Help this little nurse out please, i don't want to work on nhs for rest of my life I want to be a super rich social network site owner like elon musk on;y without the 40 billion quid in my back pocket.

I reinstalled the newest version of una, and now friends block is not showing. 

image_transcoder.php?o=bx_froala_image&h=4554&dpx=1&t=1611527099The block is in place as shown


This is the settings


No friends block.

Other blocks appear like the active people there that you can see. What am I doing wrong?

I have figured out how to make a profile entry in forms and doing the jiggling about required, so i can make a profile field, have the field appear on 'edit profile' and then the information inputed by the user appear into the 'info' block on the 'profile info block'. This is great, things are coming together. But how do I make say, a info 2 block? With different info that i can put into a different space on the page?


above is the block that is already there in the page profile info. I am able to put further fields into this so additional info can go into the profile. But if i wanted that info to go into a different block how would I go about this? This block is 'about' and in the 'add block' function on the page it comes under 'persons - info'. how would I essentially make a second block to hold more user info?

Dolphin UNA platform is very difficult to navigate. VERY difficult. This UNA site is difficult to navigate also, its not simple enough. I can see so much hard work has been put into this platform, but come on guys things need melding together. There is little to no instructions on how to do things. I have found a few out of date youtube videos that don't match the current Dolphin una. 

For instance…. I just want to make profile fields to put into profile information, so people can have on their profile if they want, say...i went to 'this school' or 'I like to drink tea'. and for that to appear in profile information. I eventually found 'forms' and found something inside forms that looks like the static profile info that comes with the installation. so I figured hey! It's here, I will stick a few fields in to see what happens. but alas, nothing happens. nothing at all. This is because there is little to no information on how to actually do things. I can't see how anyone will pay money to get a platform that is so hard to navigate, and if it's not hard then show us how to do it. Many people would be willing to fork out cash for this platform if only they could figure out how to actually work it. 

I personally can't find anything on this website that helps, in fact finding anything on this website besides my own profile is difficult. I mean a lot of the time I feel like uninstalling UNA, but then i think……..



Is there a manual on how to do things? instructions? please show me because everything is just hard. It's like figuring out how to do brain surgery with the instructions written on the back of a cereal packet. 

You know what, give me an idea of how this thing works and i will write a blooming Dolphin UNA guide for dummies. Starting with the basics, like how to turn it on.

is making menus really this hard? I found navigation, made a new menu and added new item, but now what? I want to make a side menu of simple links, my albums, my groups,my friends, my this and that you know, not everyone elses  albums, but the users individual albums. but I just can't do it. So i looked at pre-existing items in other menus, found one that might work and copied that address


it doesn't work, the end result is a blank error page and{profile_id} (which is an error page). There has to be an easier way? It can't be this hard surely. How do I make a menu? Its actually starting to drive me mad. is it really this hard or am I just not getting it?

Is there anyway, a setting somewhere, anything, anything at all that removes all the clunk from 'post to time line' function?  currently it looks like this, i mean its massive, its got all this - visibility, publishing time, location, post button, all this CLUNK lol. why so much clunk? it takes up the whole page just to have a post to time line function.


it should look like this i would have thought.....


like the one on facebook. much less clunkie. much easier to use, much easier to fit onto your home page.

Do i have the wrong post to timeline module installed? or is there a setting somewhere that I can remove clunk? i want to get rid of location, visibility, publishing time.

in my custom template I want to inclue a custom css file, like newtheme.css , so i can generally chage the css and i know exactly where i have made chages ect. However in the old dolphin i would stick a link to that css in some header php some where if i remember correctly, but i cannot find a place to anchor my css file in the new platform thats inside my template. How have you guys been doing this? I can chage the css in the current css files, but I want to make my own. How would I go about doing this?
