How to make FACEBOOK like top bar ( Ning bar)?

This tip includes : a small profile photo exactly like facebbok ( small profile photo on ning bar code is originally written by TJ) , profile link with my profile written, my friends link, find friends link on the left side of Ning Bar.


Simply copy and paste the following code into Custom Code.

The Code

<script type="text/javascript">
if (ning.CurrentProfile != null) x$('#xn_bar_menu').find('a#xn_username').after('<div style="font-size:11px; font-family:Tahoma;"><img style="border:solid 1px white;margin:0px;padding:0px;" src="' + ning.CurrentProfile.photoUrl + '" width="26" height="26" /><a href="/profiles" style="color:#f5f5f5; font-weight:bold;">My Profile</a><a href="/profiles/friend/list?my=1" style="color:#f5f5f5; font-weight:bold;">My Friends</a><a href="/profiles/members/advancedSearch" style="color:#f5f5f5; font-weight:bold;">Find Friends</a> </div>');

Thank you Bernard and TJ, it works beautifully on my site.

You're welcome! :-)

Does this work for 3.0, dear Bernard?

Yes this does work on 3.0 but a bit of the code needs changing, I wold hang on a bit though as ning are adding some more items to the Ning bar like notifications etc so best wait until they have finished that to see what's been added and what room there is left over if you still need to add some links there.

Thant's right John...

Thank you so much !amazing
