Blogs Vs. Forums

Started Jan 28, 2014 0 Replies

I have watched several of Richard Millington's videos.  He is a big proponent of forums. Still I wonder what the trade off is between forums vs. blogs.  In 2013 I moved my attention away from…Continue

We set up our current network to have an entry page. So if you type americangrove.org you go to a static page that explains our community. The disadvantage is you have to go through the entry page or…Continue

I just checked my Ning 3.0 sandbox site and I have 29 members.  How is that possible, I thought the limit was five.  When I first signed up six months ago, Ning billed me but later made a correction…Continue

3.0 member limitation

I just checked my Ning 3.0 sandbox site and I have 29 members.  How is that possible, I thought the limit was five.  When I first signed up six months ago, Ning billed me but later made a correction and now I am in Sandbox.  Do you think they forgot to change the configuration to limit me to five members.This leaves me with a dilemma. While functional, I am using my 3.0 Ning site to test different looks and features. I probably should broadcast email everyone to join my 2.0 network.  It…See More

"Hi Neil, I'm a little confused on the original question, due to your solution. The "show" on home page would be Ning 2.0. For others reading this, to change the number of photos displayed on home page for Ning 3.0, it takes a few more…"

"OK, answered the first part of my question. It is under home page, in the photo box, under "show".  Still interested in anyone that has integrated a html slide show.  Also interested in sharing my photos on other websites. …"

Photos on 3.0

Photos are a big part of my network and I have placed on the top of my cedar theme.  That said, I cannot find a place to edit the number of pictures to display on home page.  Currently I have eight pictures loaded and all eight are on display eating up a tone of real estate. For the life of me I cannot find a way to limit the display to one or two allowing my blog to appear above the fold. I figure if members want to see all photos they will dig in deeper by going into photos. Of course, my…See More

Manipulating images in Text box

I am not too nifty with HTML and I am struggling with aligning images within a textbox to be adjacent to each other. The images are 40 pixels and I want to stack in 2 x 3 table with each image containing a link. The text box only seems to be able to stack them on top of each other using the wysiwyg. The images are links to my social networks using their icons. Maybe I should place in the header like you do.  Any recommendations?  Thank you.See More

"Nevermind.  I was pasting into the wysiwyg and not the HTML.  Once I choose HTML in the upper bar, all worked accordingly.  Phew.  I thought I was going to have REALLY learn HTML instead of being the HTML poser that I am. "

Ning 3.0 HTML

I am experimenting with Ning 3.0. I am not a coder but I do cut and paste a lot of embedded code from other websites.  That said none of the code I embedded in Ning 2.0 in text boxes work in the HTML boxes.  For example, to embed my ScoopIt page I used the following without success on 3.0:<p><iframe width="480" height="200" align="middle" src="…See More
