Our community for home performance professionals has an active group sponsored by a training company. The person who created the group is no longer with the company and wants to transfer the group with hundreds of members to the company. Ning says the only way to do this is with custom CSS. I don't know how to do this. Is there anyone who can help us? Thanks!

  • They'd need to target that specific 'page' with a CSS alteration, which idk how to do myself.  Hopefully someone will chime in this weekend and help you.

  • Thanks for the encouragement Kos. Any help is very welcome!

    Hi Diane,

    I don't know why Ning would have told you CSS is the solution, I'm a bit baffled by that answer. CSS is for design. I would say that the person who created the Group would have to relinquish their Member ID to the Company. Or, if the Company is a member of your site, you could make them an Administrator of the Group. However, to my knowledge, there is no way to change the "Group Creator" and why I suggested the membership relinquishment.

    To change a Group Member to an Administrator:

    Go to Group
    Click on the Options Button
    Click on Manage Group Members
    Click on the Company's Member Name, and Promote to Administrator.

    Hope that helps,

    Jen

  • Thank you Jen. I'll ask Ning to relinquish the Member ID for the group creator.

      So there's no confusion, what I was mainly suggesting: If the original Group Creator is willing to turn over their member ID on your site, to the Company, that would be great.

      If Ning is able to remove the Group Creator Ownership, and release back to you, that would work. Then, you could simply make the "Company" the Administrator. But, not sure they can.

      On another note: Best I remember, when you delete a member on 2.0, you have the option to retain their content. It gets tricky in 2.0. Main thing, just don't want your Group to get deleted, accidentally.

      Best of luck,

      Jen

  • Thanks Jen for your brainstorming. We were able to fix the problem with a work-around.

    We had the original group creator login and change her name to the company's name, change her picture and email and password to the company's also. And voila!...success.

    She then opened a new account for her personal use.

    A lot easier than custom CSS code (which I don't know how to do...)

    Thanks!

    • That's fantastic!  That's the nice thing a/b having Creators here.  Sometimes it helps to just brainstorm back-n-forth and *walllah* the solution comes to you.
