"You need to check the ning.CurrentProfile variable. Here's a basic example.
<script>
if (ning.CurrentProfile != null)  alert('hello I am logged in or do some other stuff here');else{  alert('hello I am not logged');}

"You're welcome.
You could just use x$(' .page-photos .image-aspect-4-3 img') or probably even x$(' .page-photos .image-aspect-4-3') so it targeted all images in this div - might help if you upload a variety of file types.

  • 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.
