Special Member Links - Your Friends, Your Discussions, Your Groups, Your Photos, Your Videos

How to add special member links, so your members can access their "content" quickly.

You can add these links anywhere you want. I like to add them to submenu tabs, under "My Page" or "My Profile"

Go to:
My Network/Settings/Tabs & Pages
Add a sub-tab for each item you want to add to your Ning Network.

I like this setup for each sub-tab option:
1. Make this a sub-tab
2. Make Visible to Members

Here are the titles and links: Add the link next to - "Use Existing URL"

Your Blog
/profiles/blog/list?my=1


Your Events

/events/event/listUserEvents


Your Friends
/profiles/friend/list?my=1


Your Discussions
/forum/topic/listForContributor


Your Groups
/groups/group/listForContributor


Your Photos
/photo/photo/listForContributor


Your Videos
/video/video/listForContributor


STEPS ON ADDING SUB-TABS:

  1. Go to Tab Manager.
  2. In left column, click on +Add New Tab.
  3. In right column, enter "Tab Name". (i.e. Your Videos)
  4. Check the box next to: "Make this a sub-tab"
  5. Next to Target Page, select "Use Existing URL".
  6. Next to "Use Existing URL", enter your link. (i.e. /video/video/listForContributor)
  7. Next to "Make Tab Visible To", select Members. (this is your choice)
  8. In left column at bottom, you will see your new sub-tab.
  9. Grab it and drag UNDER the main menu tab, where it should reside. (i.e. My Page)
  10. In bottom right, click on Save Tab Settings.


And, here's a visual for one special Member link sub-tab:



UPDATE: As of July 2011, the title of this feature page is: Tabs & Pages, not Tab Manager

This did not translate well, so not sure what you need, sorry. You can add any subtab with links via My Network/Settings/Tabs & Pages (this just changed recently).

Best Regards,

Excellent idea Jen!  I've implemented it on my site.  We'll see how well it's received! :)

Rob

=) Glad you like it! Hope it works out for your site.

Another one I have that someone may want to add is a subtab for "My Likes"  /profiles/like/list?.   If you don't use the word like, change to match your network.

 

 

Nice, Girl! I think you should be on the JenSocial Tip Team!

;-)

thanks

GirlRiders, this a cool one,

unfortunately it shows only the likes that i gave to others, could be more cool to find the url(link) that show the likes i get from the others. That would be great for my members.

Jen are you on it? pls

Tks

Stygo

Honestly, I have no idea if there's a link for that. I wouldn't know where to start.

Best,

Jen

I agree; excellent.  I will enjoy this, as will other members.

Thank you GirlRiders,

Thank you Jen / JenSocial,

Holly
