Last week, we hosted our first Migration Demo and Q&A Webinar. Thanks to Juliet for her awesome Demo and to everyone who attended. There were a few technical glitches, but we worked some of those out for the recording and we'll definitely be taking your feedback on things we can improve on for the next webinar. Read on for the video and additional resources.

Members need both the motivation to initiate and to overcome their fear of starting a discussion. Their motivation to initiate will be to either learn something (e.g. "Does anyone know how to....?"), to impress others (e.g. "does anyone else think business class travel isn't as great as it used to be?" or to bond with others (e.g. "I'm upset Kelly got fired from the Apprentice").

"I wasn't suggesting the script was causing the error - just wondering if the fault was related.

Indeed, the CSS required was also missing, so, in that the Design Studio was the source of both errors, then yes, the faults were related. The Custom Co…"

"The release of the archiver is something I'm taking as a positive. To my mind this has always been a legal requirement, something that upholds there own TCs. We own our data.

SweetPotato replied to Vipster's discussion How to change the text color of one navigation tab with CSS in Ning 2.0?
"I assume this is a ning 2.0 site as I don't think ning 3.0 gives menu items unique IDs.

This targets the list item (tab)

#xg_tab_xn76 {
Some CSS
}

This targets the list item (tab) a href link

#xg_tab_xn76 a{
Some CSS
}
