Hi

Does anyone know if one can create a hierarchical structures and tie relationships to it?

I have looked all over the place but can not find any info about this kind of functionality.

My purpose is to create a site for a school where the members should be students, parents, teachers, principal etc.
The groups created should be for each class and per each class tie the students, parents and teachers etc.
The relationships should be to tie a student to a class and to a teacher, and students should be tied to one or more parents.
The search should be able on per student to see who is the parents, and who is the teacher. Search for the parents and see who is the student and the teacher of the student etc.

Can anyone advice me on this and tell me if this is possible in the current set of functionality by Ning.

I have created a community for the school on Ning, and created the groups for the classes in the school, but any member of the community that signs up ends up on the same level as a member and can not be differentiated from each other according to the above mentioned relationships.

Thanks,
Fredrik
