Social Web Directory :: Social Network Directory :: Ning Tips and Ning Support
Due to a recent Ning Security update, this tip stopped working. Ning Engineer: Jon Aquino has fixed the code for us. The tip is now a simple box, with no background as I had before. I actually like it better. It works well and is easy to install.
All you need to do is copy/paste the attached code to a text box on your home page. There are 2 versions, one for wide column and one for a narrow column.
Enjoy, and thanks to Ning Engineer Jon we can use this again!
With this code, I update my Twitter & Facebook status ?
No, sorry. I've never been able to get the twitter and facebook boxes to work with the status update on home page. It just updates the status.
I think you're fine. There is a token #/variable that is within the code, and I feel sure it's different for each site. That's about all I know about it. So far, I doubt many folks have changed it. And, if it's working, I wouldn't worry about it.
You are very welcome.
If you mean for the text like "
How Goes Your Day?, or whatever you use as your title, just add a span style to the text like this:
<span style="font-size:12px;">your title</span>
For the font size within the status update box, search for:
AND change to:
You only have 140 characters, just like Twitter.
Did you try editing the code? I changed a few things via FireBug, and it's better. You need to experiment with the code. ;-)
<form method="post" action="/profiles/profile/setStatus">
<div class="input input-status xj_input_container"><input type="hidden" name="xg_token" value="de147cb05a04970322c7e3174fa2a48b">
<div style="padding-top: 15px;" class="input-container">
<textarea style="margin-left: 8px; margin-top: -5px; overflow: hidden; display: block; width: 435px; border: 1px solid rgb(192, 192, 192); height: 38px; line-height: 1em;" cols="68" rows="2" class="text xj_hint xj_status_input hint" name="status"></textarea>
<button style="float: right; color: rgb(255, 255, 255) ! important; background-color: transparent ! important; border: 0px none; margin-top: -32px; padding-right: 18px;"><b> </b>UPDATE</button></div>
I'm not sure that's all of your code, but notice the line-height is changed from 2.0em to 1.0em, margin-top for the word UPDATE changed, and height changed to: 38px
