Social Web Directory :: Social Network Directory :: Ning Tips and Ning Support
I wanted to see if the new designs that ning has made live , will it mess up the codes we have gotten from Jen's awesome tips?
I'm hoping it doesn't cause my members love the way the Forum and blogs are side by side..
has anyone tried the new designs with the Codes from Jens tips?
Not yet, for me. Kind of a scary step. At this point we don't NEED the design studio for the most part, but it sure is nice for newbies. Heres a ning site that I AM working with the design studio on. (probably will be messy-still working on it) http://sociallyglobal.ning.com
And here is one without, but using Jens tips and the new "ad" boxes. http://www.carnytown.com
And, trust me. I am no designer...just a 69 year old male that is getting by with the smart people like Jen.
Honestly, not sure yet. As things break, I'll try to fix them when time allows. I will be spending most of my time adding tips and offering support in the Premium group, since I won't be able to adequately support both systems. Don't get me wrong though. I will help everyone, everywhere I can.
Let me know if something breaks. Add to original tip or create new discussion under support group, and I should see it.
Currently if you make the switch, the member profile pages are set to the site look. As far as having to pay for this feature in the future, I haven't heard anything on that.
I believe Ning is working to make this possible (customizable member profiles) in the future - - 99% sure about that. That's what I read straight from Ning, on Ning Creators.
I think ill just stay with the old look..
I like jens tips and they look good on our site..
Thanks for the kind words. I hope Ning allows us to stay on the old as long as we want. I'll be honest though: I fear they will someday come up with a reason why we have to move - - but hopefully not.
Have a nice weekend,
