sorry, just to clarify, 'when you open the pdf up in the group' it says ning.com in the browser.
I've never used PDF's on any of my networks, I'm not sure about this. Are you using your own domain, or Ning domain?
Right! I forgot, when you upload anything to Ning it rests on their servers, so you're going to get the Ning API address when you open a file or image.
Damion's advice is best if you're that concerned about it.
Thanks guys much appreciated. That answers the question. Now it comes down to the age old debate, do I want everyone to know I use ning, or is it more important that I pretend to be this good all by myself!
I don't know of anyone looks at the navigation bar, and even if they did, not sure if they would care to try and ascertain what api[dot]ning[dot]com.
As I've said in previous discussions the clearest indicator of a Ning network is the customization. Unless you've got what it takes to take the "Ning-ness" out of your network, anyone can pick out a Ning network out of a lineup. Once I'm done with the customization to my network, I'm willing to put "Powered by Ning" in my footer. LOL But seriously.
When you open a pdf as your waiting the 'egg timer' revolves around and I immediately saw the 'ning.com', I'm sure others would too. It doesn't say api[dot]ning[dot]com it just says, 'ning.com'. Is this an issue? I don't know? Does anyone care? Ultimately I think my business is primarily judged by the quality of my offline networking events. So what that I use ning? The fact is, my site is better than any other business networking site - in my opinion! So, no matter how the product is derived the end user get's best benefit from signing up to me, not a competitor.
But, I just thought I would see if anyone knew how to de ning it.
Don't know if it's an issue, but it should have the API address in the nav bar. I ran a little test on my network to see what was what, and that's what I see. You upload anything, it's on Ning's servers, so you ought to see the API addy.
I don't care if anyone knows I'm on Ning (though from your post, I assumed you did), I just don't like the cookie cutter look. We look like one big inbred family.
just like The Waltons!
Haaahahaha! "Good night, John-boy!"
you can remove 'upload files' function and box, also you can remove ning link when uploading photos
or if you need pdf files hosted, you can also host it on ning, but add subdomain forwarding with masking
Help Seeker, I think I understand conceptuly; can you share details on how to do this? I would really appreciate some direction. I have similar issues about using PDF's and then showing ning.com as the location. I would like to mask the server default. Thank you.
