I just added this tutorial to my site - - figured it was needed here, too.
How To Customize / Add Text to Sign Up Page and Example:
NOTE: These instructions are for PUBLIC Networks.
I keep my HTML in a file on my computer, tweak and get it ready, then I add to the language
This is a great tutorial, but I cannot preview my custom sign-up text. My test netowrk is set to 'by invitation only', despite my real notwork not using this policy. It appears that this cannot be changed. Any clues?
I have a question on here asking if something like this can be done with private sites....
Malke splash page that doesn't go anywhere on a front page public/private site?
I believe you can search for the same string as in the instructions above. I stated it was only for public, because I have never tested for a private network. I just went to your sign-up page, and see the same text:
Apply for membership now. If you're already a member
Try something really short like a one liner, and make sure the edits are reflected on the sign-up page.
Let us know if you don't mind,
That's great, Tracy!
Hi Jen, to mirror the words of a previous NC's response, you certainly see the person with all the Ning customisation knowledge here.
Would you mind answering a question for me regarding sign-up customisation queries.
We're discussing a new site idea here for free magazine content but the site must be UK only.
I've had a look around within the Test Ning settings and the content that's available within the NC site but I haven't seen anything specific just yet. So, two questions then;
1) Is there a way within Ning to automatically use geo-targetting to politely say 'Sorry you can't join this network due to your location'.
2) If this can't be done (and I don't think it can be) can we customise the signup form to add a Postcode field (UK equivalent of Zipcode)?
I'm aware of 'approving of members' too (Private Network?) but any other options of doing this would be cool to hear.
Hope that makes sense and I hope I haven't hijacked your post.
Many, many thanks in advance,
#1 - I don't know of a way to do this on Ning.
#2 - Not to my knowledge.
Your best bet is to approve members, and within your sign-up page, add a very clear message about UK Members Only.
Thank you so much for your help! This helps tremendously, :-)
Is there anyway to add a background image to this page?
This is a wonderful post. It helped me getting my network ready to launch. Like Josh, I am also looking for code to change the background image on my sign up/sign in page. something like www.fashionandyou.com/fashionandyou-client-http-shop/loginpage
It would be really great if this could be achieved.
does anybody know how to add adsense to signup page? Is it even possible?
I spent whole day searching for solution - no results :(
