Good day Creators!
For a while now I've been stumped in figuring out how to achieve this and I've seen it implemented on other Ning networks so before we even begin let me just say ITS POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR! (lol) Now that thats clear, lets get down to business!
What I would like to achieve is fairly simple and actually I GUARANTEE ning will more than likely implement this into our networks after this post receives the views and feedback it deserves. What I would like to do is simply add icon images next to the module title. For e.g. in the module holding all the videos that are displayed there should be an option to some what "label" that module opposed to the boring "videos" text thats currently offered. We should have the ability to upload a pic next to that module title just as were able to add pics to the groups we create so their all individuals and have their own style and meaning. This is such a small yet pertinent request because the networks look plain and even with the fantastic CSS coders i've found to help literally make my site "bounce and sway" (lol) it still looks like that generic network just with some color and style to it. The icon images would serve as some form of "WYSIWYG" meaning, my 2 year old baby brother should know where the videos on my site are simply because there would be a "video" image icon next to the module title. NOW...you ready for the cool part??? These icon images wouldnt be set by ning! It would simply be an option meaning you dont have to use an image icon in your modules if you dont want and each network would have different icon images because the images would be things we uploaded ourselves! This leaves plenty of room for creativity and overall your network still being your network, actually with these new icons next to the modules our networks will actually start looking more like our networks! The fun part would be in choosing your sets of icons and the images you use to represent what it is that module focuses on. Very simply feature that would conjure up more activity on our networks and bring new members. People wanna go online and see simple pictures that lets them know what their capable of doing while on your site, not a long description like what I've just done (lol) and if I couldve found a picture to describe all of what I did TRUST ME I wouldve uploaded it (lol). Overall guys, I look out for the best interest of us all. Again, the coolest part is that we'd all choose and find our own icons, that would just show where the creativity is as admins of our networks! Let me know what the rest of you creators think!
the file I attached is zipped but can be extracted and opened just double click the folder. It contains some examples of what i was mentioning in regards to icon images next to the module titles!
