If You Cannot Locate Prompt After Installation

If you hover your mouse below the Settings button (the gear icon) on the Persona Bar you'll see an empty placeholder. That is the Prompt button. Prompt is currently in the Alpha release phase. It is being written to be incorporated into DNN Core. Because of this, the installation cannot create an icon on the Persona Bar itself. To install the icon, follow the manual installation steps.
