"No, there's no automatic way of copying that theme and adding it to Ning 2.0. The best i can suggest is that you hire a Ning designer/dev to heavily customise your Ning 2.0 to mimic that design - but that could be costly.

  • but it might be possible to mimic something like that? with fonts and is there a way to side nav like that or does it all have to be across the top?  My devs are going to dig around a sandbox but our current developer says we can't do anything like that at all.

  • After finding out that NING isn't converting any more sites to 3.0 any longer, my current developer says there isn't a way to take this design http://zakeriadesigns.ning.com/ and put into NING 2.0 for this site http://www.southatlanticlcc.org/.  We will go back to using the events that are on the later site, just we were wondering about the design.  Can you provide any insight?

  • 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,

  • 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
