HTML in a home page text box shows background images in cells and divs fine. When the same html is copied to member comments, blog and forum replies, even the main content of discussions and blogs I create -- the images disappear. They seem to be stripped away by some underlying network system script or code.
This is a 3-year-old problem that no one has ever advised on knowledgeably in prior askings. It would be nice to get a solutional reply from Team Ning, so there can be at least intranetwork consistency in the appearance of identical conent.
- Thanks to all who help.

I'm don't know much about HTML, but I do know that your SHOUTING.
.... And I am one of those "plenty of men" who are not typists for sure.
All caps from others don't faze me at all (members do it on my network all the time) and I respect just what you said, sis ... that they may not be typists adept at switching alpha cases et al. I focus on the content - and am thankful they provide it - and avoid any emotional reaction to the caps ... or all lower case either.
Thanks for asking, Marina. No I haven't, with other network management and offline work issues needing attention -- though I feel sure it's in the Ning platform's back-end code which denies some simple HTML content inclusions [background images in this case] and formatting in different areas (inconsistently and without apparent reason it seems), stripping parts of or "chopping up" perfectly normal html coding in different content areas on our (all?) network(s).
The Ning Team has not responded to this query at all , as if they don't know or care what I'm talking about -- which in simplicity is that: Certain "garden-variety" HTML formatting of content which works and has worked for years everywhere else in the World Wide Web is disallowed in customizing content on the Ning platform. We're not talking HTML5, scripts with potential security concerns, convoluted CSS nor any other threatening tools and techniques ... just textbook HTML. Oh well...(sigh)...I have a 300-member network of senior-citizen alumni, mostl not even a little computer-savvy....for whom jumping to another network platform might mean "goodbye" to the online reunion they praise the enjoyment of.
And it's so unnecessary, because though Ning's not the only network game in town it has admirably assembled automatic useful features that could make it a social network juggernaut in the annals of Webdom if it would just loosen the micro-managing control grip on code enhancing for those who have some skills in that, and still keep safeguards against accidental "user-sabotage" of networks.
