SweetPotato replied to Ron's discussion Ning Apps: Photo Tagging Feature (WIP)
"Looks very nice Ron.
Does it let you choose members of the Ning site or is it just arbitrary text you're tagging it with?
If the former, does it shoot them an email notifying them?
Cheers, SP"

SweetPotato replied to Urban Pulse Media's discussion What's up with NING
"No, just not progressing much.
Do the maths. How would they go under with their lucrative subscription model?"

SweetPotato replied to Luke Jones's discussion Is there a way to tag people like on facebook and twitter?
"This is oddly not a feature they ever had. But like Ron says, there are ways and means. A quick google search yields a few jQuery plugins for other platforms that could be quickly adapted to Ning.

"Hey Diane,

I understand. I use photoshop layers in PSDs every day to create images that I upload to Ning :-)

Never had or seen this issue before. The images above were just a quick test.

But I do get this on a Ning 2.0 site.
Jen, I was looking for the data-mce-src="filename" but can't see that happening on the 2.0 i'm testing on. Just dipped into this conversation to see if I can help but do let me know if…"

SweetPotato replied to Mary Jane Peterson's discussion New Site with 3.0
"The idea of a community for that niche and therefore potential customers is still a great one. Just don't do it on Ning because they *could* shut it down.

Loads of other options for community building.

Good luck.

"Cheeky indeed.
Might I suggest that simply browsing this forum would give you an idea about what community owners (current and potential) need from software.
I can't see much incentive to answer the survey myself, I'm sorry to say.
That said, good l…"

  • Yep, it's #4.   ;)

  • Hello. I was told you may have a Ning 2.0 site for sale and I was wondering if you still had it up for sale? I have sent you a friend request and hope to hear from you soon.

  • Hello,

    You write on this page "I run a Ning site for lawyers ..."
    But, I think that's no longer the case now. You no longer use Ning for deferolaw.com, although I know you continue to use Ning for other projects.

    Best regards,
    Ambroise Ingold

  • hello I was trying to implement the profile slide show and followed the steps but don't see a slide show on the profile page did I do something wrong?  I added both sets of codes to the below header box on the members page and nothing? www.unsignedblast.com

  • I just wanted to say Hello. I will never forget you for that profile music option.

    I was busy working on something and missed the info about Creators moving to 3.0.

    All of my hard work on 2.0 is Gone With The Wind ~~~ LOL!

  • Hi. Might you be available in the weeks or months ahead for some custom work?

  • Checking out your site. WONDERFUL. Looking forward to working with you. I may hire you if I can afford it. Love your work immensely!

  • Hello - and huge apologies for the delay in replying! It would be great to welcome you to Bowes Park! I have today just completed our weekly e-mail update to members ... which I think is based on your Broadcast Message template! Thank You.

    The Bowes and Bounds Website is a volunteer project (run in what is laughingly called my "spare time") but is a warm and friendly community - to which you would be welcomed.

    Best Wishes

    Richard

  • I feel like giving a gift, because I care today and every day I am there to you and to all, I am happy knowing you are a good friend to have and for me it is good to be loved. You matter :)
  • Thank you for still being my friend here and for being a great person to have around, I appreciate and welcome you for all you are and so much more. Happy latest holiday, I'll keep you in my thoughts.
