"Although many have interpreted this as good news simply because Cyndx are not Mode, my concern is that Cyndx have only bought Ning for the tech to power their Cyndx Networks. Read up on that offering and you'll see that it's a collaborative platform…"

"All I know is that with patience the json files can be worked out. Kimono and import.io are the two most intuitive scrapers out there. You could also try parsehub.

New gig going well. HighQ.com in case you're interested. I'm now on the other side…"

True. And both look a thousand times more elegant than any Jamroom site I've seen :-)"

"Ceri, it's always impressive to see a large site migrated out of Ning to a new platform. Congrats on that.

However, I must ask how you honestly feel about the design and UX of the new site because I'm sorry to say that to me it looks dated at bes…"

SweetPotato replied to Just Asking's discussion Anyone know how to make a profile activity page?
"There should be each member's activity feed on their profile page. Like this one:

Which only relates to items posted by that member.

"Absolutely. You may need to set up the scraper differently for each platform or manipulate the scraped data before an import but if you can get structured data and have access to the backend database then it can be imported."

    I can't get it to work ... and can get help with precise photos also for the reason that we do not know if the codes must be placed below or above the codes of my theme thanks

  • Savetheworldfree.ning.com is a community driven site, improving it would be great but the job would have to be on a volunteer basis. We don't have the funds for a ning 3.

  • 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,
    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?
