Getting Started

Welcome to Creators! 

This is the space where Ning Network Creators come to discuss anything to do with managing their Ning communities. From how to get members more engaged and active to best ways for implementing a feature on your network, it's all here. 

What's Up with Ning 3.0

PROJECTS THAT THE NING 3.0 TEAM IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON: 

Activity Feed Updates - options for more content in the activity feed.

APIs - The ability to create new members and content programatically.

For more information on what's next, visit the Product Roadmap

The Feature Prioritization Survey is now closed. Thanks for your feedback and we'll be reviewing the responses and releasing a report in early May.
