    Anything positive about this script? Any social networking script you find out there has bugs..phpFox, Rayzz, Joomla, AbleDating and all the other ones are full of bugs too. I dont think there is a perfect script out there. So which one is the best? Is Dolphin something i should try?

    You could try it, it's free, but personally I think it's one of the worst written scripts I've ever seen. On top of that it's only pseudo-free, in that you're expected to pay for proper support to get it to work properly, there are even rumours that it's deliberately buggy to get people to pay for help - not sure if that's true though.

    It does look nice, which sort of lures you in (I have one site using Dolphin myself) but it's a total pain to use, the templates don't make much sense if you're trying to make your own and it has more bugs than an Amazonian rain forest.

    I'm thinking of giving phpfox a try, converting my Dolphin site to that, but it costs money, so I'm still just thinking about it.

    I have a few sites that run on osDate, which is far more stable than Dolphin and has a totally open and transparent support forum and no hidden extras, unless you count paying $5 for a special template, which you don't need to as you can just alter the free ones it comes with.


    I'm also going to check out VLDPersonals after reading a post earlier in this thread. :)

    Well it is free, you don't ever have to pay them anything, but you have to pay for support to get it to work properly.

    I wouldn't recommend abledating myself, I've heard some pretty terrible things about it - though I haven't used the software myself I have been around the dating software scene for like 5 years and I've pretty much only heard bad things about abledating, and the only people I've seen post good things have been people with just a few posts on forums like they joined just to say that abledating is good.

    I'm not saying you're doing that, but I would love to see genuine praise for abledating, or any dating software actually, from someone who's been around a long time and has been using whatever software for at least a year or so.

    Edit: I take it back AlonsoDC, you are one of those people I've heard about - I just looked through your posts and they all seem to be about abledating, oh well...

    Socialnetworker, your sig link doesn't work, it might be too long? You can shrink it with link shrink url link in my sig if you like, or use tiny url or somewhere like that if forums don't allow long urls. Or you can probably just make it a text link by typing a bit of text then highlighting it and clicking the world link icon and entering the address.

    Dolphin is shit. Unless you are a coding genius... don't mess with it. I ended up having to pay one of the developers that worked on it to do everything for me, and I'm still not happy.

    I have since decided to take a custom route, after spending around $2000 on these bastards and not being close to satisfied. I wish I would have saved myself the money and never fucked around with Boonex or any of it's terrible products.

    If you are going to make a social network that you expect to go big time, stay far away from this piece of shit. Oh yeah, there's also a bug that crashes your database after you have 70,000 users. How does Boonex remedy this? They're releasing SHARK, a new product with more new features, and more bugs I'm sure.

    I do belief that this is a scam to get you to pay. Anyone who is not a coding master will HAVE to pay someone to make any progress with this software.

    AlonsoDC, seeing as you own Abledating I don't think your opinion counts.

    hi,
    I asked a question about these other dating software packages but nobody answered my question:

    Anybody got experience with

    datingsoftware.biz

    phpfox.com

    vldpersonals.com

    or

    datingpro.com

    I've looked into phpfox a bit and it looks interesting, but I haven't bought it yet.

    I have bought vldpersonals.com after reading this thread and they are in the process of converting my Dolphin site for me, for $100, and say it will be done by Thursday - say I shall have to see how that goes.

    phpfox guys also said they could convert my dolphin site but quoted me $450 to do it... so I told them never mind, that I would convert it myself if I decided to buy their software.

    I wouldn't consider the other two on your list as they don't have public forums where people can discuss and rant about how crap they are, which usually mean they're even worse than that. :)
