If you have a question maybe another member of this group can answer it. I can't guarantee I will have all the answers but we can help each other out the best we can. Also some questions may be ahead of their time so you might have to be patient before the answer comes.
I have my own NING site, however I am also administrator on a much larger Ning site and I have been asked by the creator of it to add music. Now when I go to the dashboard the icon music has a little lock on it. Is this because she locked it or is this music option unavailable on the site? On my site I have a dollar sign on the icon which means I would have to upgrade to have this option. So what's the deal? do I have her unlock it so I can put music on the site or do we need to upgrade or something? I have written a nice little jingle to promote the site and I would love to add it to the site. Thanks in advance...~M~
I have played around with my sandbox site for a week and I can't make it look good at all. I don't know how to write code so I am stuck with what is already in place. the only thing I added was a share script. I wanted to have an image at the top but there isn't enough room, so I removed it and now the whole site looks awful. Not sure what to do since I can't figure anything out when it comes to code. UGH
It is a difficult situation when what we envision in our mind is beyond our knowledge to create. We feel we are left with either spending a lot of time trying to figure it out ourselves or finding someone to help us who already has the knowledge. I say this from personal experience.
I would recommend taking one thing at a time and using available resources. You are not alone and the answers you are looking for have probably been tackled by others.
I plan to start cataloging simple changes one can make to their site. However please understand everything is pretty new and it's not a finished product. Even experienced NCs are having difficulty. In time, though I expect there will be as many tips and tricks for Ning 3.0 as there are for Ning 2.0 as things develop.
