SweetPotato replied to Traddie's discussion How do you increase the width of an image beyond 750 on a page
"Ning automatically inserts an inline width for images over 750px to make them 750px (actually this depends on the column that the html resides in on Ning 2.0). If however, you upload the image, then switch to html mode you can remove this in the htm…"

SweetPotato replied to Ron's discussion Ning Apps Early Access Program Now Live!
"Ron,

I assume many of the more complex apps will be dependant on the stalled Ning v2.0 API for Ning 3.0, which doesn't seem to have been updated on GitHub for over a year. Alarm bells?

I'm not too sure many would pay for emoticons, chat, forms e…"

Those xn/detail links tend to get generated by the activity feed rather than standalone content instances. Have you tried a feed from your blog, for example?"

  • 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.
