  1. Without icons, without Notifications - - just links: Inbox, Alerts, Friends, Invite, Settings.
  2. With icons, without Notifications - - just icons and links.
  3. With icons, with Notifications - -icons, links, and Notifications (everything! thanks to Elson).

  1. This tip will show you how to add your Account Box Links for: Inbox, Alerts, Friends, Invite and Settings to your NingBar.
  2. Hide your Account Box, saving space above fold.
  3. The links will only be visible to signed-in Members.
  4. Version #1 - No icons, no notifications, just links.
  5. Version #2 - No Notifications, just icons and links.
  6. Version #3 - Everything (Icons, Links, and Notifications)
  7. Note: you may experience issues with formatting if you already have custom links in your NingBar.

Nevermind - I had to reloadseveral times but the notification finally showed up after about an hour, long after my email notification.  

That's fine.

GR, The logic on the Inbox seems to not update sometimes, mostly on the home page. I reported this Elson. I guess he never found a solution.

Best Regards,

Jen

Oh, ok.  Thank you.

Hi I tried this on my site and it worked really well.

Thanks for sharing it.

Hi Joshua,

Glad to hear you like the tips. On this one, the only way I can help is if you send a test account sign-in username and password, via private message.

Best,

Jen

 Nice tip,

 I tried it and it work, but how can i get the links in french ?

 My ning network is in french but when i tried the tip, it displayed the links in english, how can i get them in french ? Something to change in the css code ?

Simply edit the code to suit your language:

>Alerts<->Alertes/span>

>Friends<->Amis/span>

>Invite<->Inviter/span>

>Settings<->Paramètres/span>

Ignore the "span" after each item, the editor added it after I saved my response. 

Thank you.

It is perfect. I am new in css, html and all kinds of codes. But i'm trying my best just by following steps.

Thanks Patrick!

You're welcome Jen.

Thank you, i am going to try it.
