Designer of Beautiful Ning Communities


I run a site for lawyers and help over 40 clients with their Ning communities.

I am available to hire if you want a clean, modern looking Ning site. I specialise in business/professional, educational and magazine style sites.

You can check out my Ning Design portfolio, services and rates here.

I've also got a Ning 3.0 Tips forum here.

Here are some recent Ning 3.0 projects I've worked on:


I am also available on retainer if you need someone to help run your site.

SweetPotato replied to Natasha Dyer's discussion Building calendars into Ning
"Hi John,

Ok, got it. So there would be 12 blog instances each with 30 odd categories, and if we wanted to straddle years then we might have to double that.

Given that we'd have to add that to five groups, some which already have several blog inst…"

"Thanks John, but please don't spend hours on this. If it only takes half an hour then great, but otherwise im unconvinced it is a solution that will work if 12 blog instances are required in each of the five groups then?

I'm unclear how users would…"

"Hi John,
Thanks for replying. Was it just using a forum instance or blog instance?
The problem is getting uniformity/consistency in content that way, plus of course how this is visually presented as a calendar, which is an important aspect of this…"

SweetPotato replied to Nelson Freytes's discussion Using Ning 3 as a news publishing network
"Hiding log in and sign up options would be easy, and if your content was set to admin contributors only then there wouldn't be a sniff that adding content on a member level was even an option.
Then just add facebook or disquss comments and you're aw…"

SweetPotato replied to Eric Odom's discussion 94,000 members, $1,200 a year for Ning... and Ning seems to be AWOL.
"Hi Eric,

These are sentiments that many NCs discuss on an almost daily basis here on Creators, a network that is dying bar that one topic.

My opinion on this is that the uncertainty over Ning 3.0 only heightens fears that most of us have always ha…"

  • 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.
  • Happy thanks giving to you my friend. I hope all is well. I am thinking of you. Blessings, Elshara.
