3.0 transition assistance


3.0 transition assistance

this group is for both experienced coders who love coding for 3.0, as well as those who are struggling to transition to 3.0 or finding the idea of starting over from scratch a insurmountable hassle.

we are here to help ease the transition, with code sharing and hands on assistance.

we will also strive to help you feel more comfortable working on your site yourself.

whenever possible we will attempt to guide you through the process of figuring it out yourself instead of simple copy and paste code sharing.

we simply want to make the transition an easier happier experience for all.

Does anynone knwo how I could get the "comments" in a discussion in the same format as they appeared in Ning 2.0?    I believe I have tried all the combinations (flat, threaded, etc.), but I cannot obtain the possibility to respond to a precise comment and to obtain the text I am commenting upon after the old :

Mystic personally I think it would be prudent for larger networks to wait and let some smaller networks be the guinea pigs and go first.  Let them detect any bugs and then larger sites will feel more comfortable moving with Phase 2 or 3.when it's a smoother process.  Just my .02 cents.  Have a great weekend!

yes you can use a .com mines ww3.dreadlockssite.com

no sites have transitioned yet cause the transition tools arent done yet

membership size shouldnt matter 1 bit in the transition except in the plan that it would put you in.

number of groups wont matter either i have 400+

how it will work

all forums  content will  transfer into a new instance of a forum..unlinked

all blogs will transfer into a new blogs instance unlinked same with photos   vids etc

you can then link them by dragging them up to your menu (linked pages) or..move the content into the forums/bligs/etc that you already created

groups i supose will be put into a new group hub?

im not 100% sure on all the specifics but thats the gist of what ive gathered so far

we should see the earliest transitions begining soon most likely on smaller sites

i have to wait for a few must have features to be in place

although i cant wait to transition

Concern about upgrading with a large membership.

1. I see no mention of ning membership size.  Are there known issues if we were to upgrade a site with 13,000 members, a few hundred groups and years of blogs and discussions?

2. What are the average memberships of the sites already transitioned to ning 3.0 and ning groups 3.0? 

3. Also, will ning 3.0 allow a .com URL, or will .ning.com become part of the URL in ning 3.0?

I started a sandbox account today and began playing. I have already uploaded a custom background and header. There is still a lot about this transition I don't fully understand, but I'm a little at ease now after seeing how simple those two things were to do.

Stephanie Ning's offices are closed on the weekend so as long as you placed your proposed 3.0 URL in the sandbox discussion, they will get back to you.  Tomorrow they'll be catching up on weekend tickets so there may be a slight drag but keep checking your email (and spam folder).  Best of luck.

Thanks Kos.

I guess I'm waiting for an email then.

I appreciate the info. I thought for sure I was overlooking some link somewhere!

Comment by Randy L. Vollett on October 6, 2013 at 6:14pm

Thanks Kos. I can appreciate that. I guess that is the way with me at work. A customer wanting to know some tips and tricks to making a village display is second nature to me to help them.

Just a little jittery if all the codes i put in is lost or needs to be re done. Maybe i need to drink more. I did find a Coffee and Cream Martini recipe on line. Sounds yummy. :)
