For the last couple of days I have been browsing the discussions here on Ning creators. Just checking in to see if I could help on any that were not solved or maybe add to them if I could.
I noticed many request to move the site activity to it's own page, but I could not find any discussions where someone replied with a solution. So this is what I worked on today.

First, you will need to set your activity module preferences IE... text count, number of items to show and so on, we will be hiding it later with CSS.
Move the activity module to the right column of your Ning Powered Website. This tip will not work, if the activity module is not in the right hand column. Thank you Nyein!
We need to create a new page. You can choose to show this page to everyone or signed in members only. Give the page a title, click the HTML tab in the page editor and paste the code below into the text box area.
Now scroll to the bottom of the page and tick the box that says "Manage title and meta tags manually (advanced)". Now copy the code below and past it in the the custom box area at the bottom of the page.
If this does not go off without a hitch, please don't get upset. I may have left something out. Reply below if you need help.

****Thank you Nyein for this fix. The "Activity Module" must be in placed in the right hand column of your Ning powered website in order for this tip to work.

This works perfectly. But you MUST not tick the "Use full page width (hide sidebar)" Again, it will not function when this box is ticked. Also as mentioned the Activity feed must be in the uppermost portition of the right column, and directly below the username. I had problems getting anything to show when I had this ticked. No wonder, I finally tracked this burger down! Thanks Anthony, you might want to amend your directions/instructions on this at the beginning of this thread to make sure no one misses this. I appreciate it, you always have excellent tips.
Thank you Michael Thompson!
This tip only works for me when the activity feed is not only in the right column, but it also has to be in the top colored area so that it shows on all pages. So, the feed still shows on all the pages.
