Hi Guys n Gals,
As most of us are aware, if we have custom domains for our networks, there have been some issues with mobile photo uploading. The only way the uploads work is if you use the custom code I'm attaching below, and change the email the photo goes to from firstname.lastname@example.org BACK to email@example.com.
The problem is, if we have not purchased email service from our registrars for every current and future member, these custom url email addresses WILL NOT WORK. I am wondering if maybe Ning (or one of our code hack geniuses) could do a workaround to make it work.
I am wondering if, instead of the "unique" part as the name, if the unique part came after the @ would it work around having to buy them?
for example, the way it works correctly now is firstname.lastname@example.org
what the network TRIES UNSUCCESSFULLY to do with networks using custom domains is email@example.com
I am wondering if doing something like THIS will work
Get what I'm saying?
I don't know if it would or could work, I'm just trying to think of a way this can be done without having to buy email addresses from the registrar. Since Ning is going more towards allowing us to individualize our sites, and get away from Ning branding, this could go a LONG WAY!
(for those of you who need the attached code, just click the attachment below, highlight-copy-paste into a notepad file, and make sure you change all instances of "yoursite" to the correct names, and paste it in your custom code box in your dashboard. YOU DO NOT NEED THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE A CUSTOM DOMAIN. IF YOU HAVE YOUR ORIGINAL NING URL AND NOTHING ELSE YOU ARE OK.)
Thanks for this! We understand the issues and have some plans for making this more configurable for NCs while helping route around the domain mapping issues that can arise.
No problem. Does something similar to what i suggested sound like it could work?
It might work, but would still require a lot of setup with your custom domain in order to filter the emails correctly and forward them to Ning. The solution we're working on aims to be hassle-free for NCs.
