I've had my head buried so deep working on Design Projects and answering questions, I completely missed a new feature Ning added to their new Chat Room. Speed Racer of NASCAR NATION woke me up by adding a cool tip on Creators.ning.com!

Some Chat Sounds For The New Chat



How To Change Sounds For The New Ning Chat

  • To change the chat sounds for the new Ning Chat, head over to My Network/Settings/Features/Chat
  • You can change the initial private chat sound by clicking on one of the 4 default sounds: Classic, Knick Knack, Tang and Runner. OR, you can add your own custom sound by uploading a sound byte file with the extension .mp3.
  • To add a custom sound you will need to save your mp3 file to your local hard drive. This is where you may want to check out Speed Racer's tip on Creators: http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/some-chat-sounds-for-the-new-...
  • After you save your mp3 file, be sure you know where you saved the file - - what folder on your computer.
  • From the Ning Chat Settings Screen, click on Browse, and select the mp3 from your local computer. Click on Open, and the new sound should be ready.
  • You can also change all other sounds by clicking on one of the 4 default sounds: Classic, Neva, Puddle, or Plink. And the same as the initial private chat setting, you can upload a custom mp3 sound file for all other sounds - - very cool.
  • After you select a default sound or use your own mp3, click on SAVE and you're done.


Enjoy experimenting with your chat sounds!

perfect walkthru, Jen, and thank you for the shoutout!


Hahaha! Didn't know this!  I haven't looked at that chat page since this thing went live.  Some of those noises would drive me insane. LOL  But I did change the private message sound.  

Thanks Jen!

Hi Writer Chick,

Good to see you. Yeah, I didn't know about the feature either, until SR brought it up. Good to know...




Pretty cool tip! Never noticed that before!
