I am a NING newbie and I would say that at the moment the blog function is one of the main parts of my site. This function is currently a little off putting to some as they have their own blog and do not wish to re-post on the site due to the time/hassle involved. It would be great to find out what improvements are planned for the blog function and if there is an approximate date for when these features will be available?
Blogging is huge on my site as well. One of the suggestions that I make to my members especially if they operate their own blog.....is 1) when copying a dual post into the community from their blog is to copy from html view 2)Then paste into the community blog in the html view. This will copy exactly.
This method should work perfectly as long as their site does not prevent hot linking.
Ooh thats a good tip, I will definitely pass this on Thanks:)
Let's hope for the best.. A year is very long before any announcement on status or progress or even better a release.
I know that it's been quiet lately. Lots of work going on here, and I think you're going to be pretty happy with what you see. I've been in demos and the blogging improvements really are big ones. Hope to share more soon.
Thanks Eric! Are you able to say whether this is a matter of weeks or months?
I would estimate it will be more than four weeks but less than two months.
That might make it in time for St. Patrick's Day. Huzzah!
Awesome!! We are a strong blogging site...this is a much anticipated change~
Hey Eric, are you able to give a more specific timescale with regards to the blogging features update now that a month has past?
I hope for posts formats (text, video, photo, quote) and external comments; with this I will have no need for a blog on another platform.
