TJ @ jQueryHelp left a comment for Dan Lee
"Hey Dan,
There is a way to count page views but it requires an external server to store the count data. An app like that would cost a few hundred dollars. 
I wonder if Google Analytics has a widget for page views? I don't think they do, but there mi…"

TJ @ jQueryHelp replied to Yaidelyn's discussion How can I get data from Ning 3.0 through the API?
"Greetings Yaidelyn!
It's going to be hard to debug Ning API code here for you, but try this format:

TJ @ jQueryHelp replied to Giovanni Cappai's discussion HELP! ning 3.0 network data import using ning API
"Hi Giovanni,
As far as I know, the API for the Ning 3 platform is still in Beta testing, as it has been since 2013. It was on the Roadmap to be released for many years but it didn't happen.
However, you should still be able to use it, in a limited f…"

"Hi Annemie,
Like Kos, I have not seen anything like this before.  But I have done lots of custom jobs that change the way the Ning Latest Activity feed works, so I know it can be done.  This would not be a small project, its more of a medium sized p…"

"Long Live Ning!
It's nice to see that progress will be made in 2017. I know many NCs will be happy to have features provided for their networks by Ning, for free, that they have had to hire me and others to implement.
You mentioned Features that NC…"

TJ @ jQueryHelp replied to TJ @ jQueryHelp's discussion First Tip on Member Customizable HTML Boxes for Profile Pages
"Thanks George, I just got to test it on my site, signed in as a regular member, and the CSS doesn't work.  So yes, looks like this tip is just for Admin, which isn't that helpful :P  An admin could put CSS in the Design Studio or Custom Code box."

TJ @ jQueryHelp replied to Innocent Hami's discussion Unable To Add Custom Javascript in Page
I got it to work on my Ning 2 site by adding the code to the Custom Code box, rather than the Head box on the custom page.

  • It just took me a half hour to make a not-very-good cover photo for my profile page! 

    That is why I am a Programmer and not a designer!

  • Thanks TJ :)

  • TJ ...Hope all is well. I can't remember the test site you had where I was a member. Can you help? I'll bet it's really nice now unless you closed it down.



  • Hey TJ

    Been trying to drop you a mail, but you seem to be bouncing, got any other address I can get you on?


  • 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 :)
  • Have a great week TJ! :)
  • 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.
  • HUGE thanks again, TJ, for your help on the "full view" function for photos ... an essential for my network of photographers obviously.

    another essential to any good network is notifications ... sadly, NING seems to have missed the mark again ... when you have a chance, do you have any suggestions on this one?

    i've spent FIVE days building this network ... but i might just have to cut my losses and continue with a Groupsite one.  :(
