I have been trying to develop a combined social network and file sharing site through ning. For some reason, I can go directly to the box.net homepage and file uploads are successful. But if I try to upload files using box.net, but through the ning.com system, I get "unspecified error". I have tried multiple browsers, file types and times of day, but nothing works. I would prefer not to have to force people to join two sites, when I am looking for an integrated one.
Has anyone out there heard of a similar problem? Is it an interface problem between ning.com and box.net or some other problem?
Thanks so much ahead of time!
Hey, Frederick. Unfortunately, the Box.net app isn't working fully. I am told that we have contacted them about a fix for this Ning App. But, I do not have a time period for when this would be fixed as it involves a third party developer updating this code. However, you might want to check out Box.net's embeddable widget. I haven't used it, but it does have file-sharing functionality that might be an option for you.
Thanks, Eric! Much appreciated!
Hi Eric, I don't see box.com on ning apps anymore. It still shows on https://www.box.com/services/ning. Can you guide me in the right direction? Thanks.
Thanks Monica for your reply. We have know integrated box.com with their embedding function which works OK for us. Attached is a screenshot of how it looks in action.
