Understandably, often we get the question: "How do I add a Sign-in Box on home page, like the Ning Directory?"
, or "How do I put my Sign-In Box on the home page?"You can't
, at least not from any instructions this site can provide to you. Sorry about that.
But, this has gotten too complicated, and risking the possibility of breaking Ning's TOS, with the Security issues. See below.Why?
The Sign-In Box you see on the Ning Directory is accomplished by using a script from the former Scripts4Ning (S4N) 3rd party subscription service. Ning took over the maintenance of these scripts, and no longer enable the scripts for new members, period
. This is per Ning. Ning stated, they would add a lot of these awesome scripts to all Ning Networks, over time. However, Ning did not commit to which scripts, or when.
On the Sign-In Box, Ning has specifically stated (for now), they will NOT be adding the Sign-In Box on home page, due to Security Reasons. See comment here:Statement about Security - by Ning's Product Manager
See discussions about possible solutions here: Be advised Ning will not support this feature, even if you figure it out.http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/signin-box-q-still-not-solved
