This is a prioritized list of upcoming feature releases for Ning 3.0. Visit our announcements page for news on the most recent releases.
Groups (now available)
The Groups feature has been completely redesigned for Ning 3.0. Think: all the power and flexibility of a Ning Network within your main network. You can add multiple instances of each feature including Blog, Forum, Photos, and Custom Pages to your Groups. You can move content from the Group Forum to the main network Forum and vice versa. Members can be automatically signed-up for a Group based on profile questions, and we've done away with the concept of Group Ownership to allow for greater management and control by Network Creators.
Threaded Comments (now available)
We've added a nine-level threaded commenting system (like the one used here on Creators) and a two-level threaded commenting system. In total, you have three native commenting systems to choose from. Read the announcement.
This toolset will make it possible for Ning 2.0 Networks to import members and content over to Ning 3.0. Details on the upgrade process can be found here.
Messaging (now available)
The messaging feature will allow you to send and receive messages through the network. New to Messaging in Ning 3.0 will be the option for the Network Creator to select whether the ability to send a private message is available between any community member or just friends. Read the announcement.
Language Editor (now available)
Edit language on your network with the Language Editor. All of those custom strings you want to make your network sound more like your own can now be added in! Networks in need of a different language now have the tools needed to edit an existing language and make it their own. Read the announcement.
Search your discussions and blog posts by title, keyword or content. Search members by name or profile questions.
APIs with read/write/edit functions for all Ning features. Member creation will be possible via an API with read/write functionality.
The Chat feature encourages for real-time conversation on your network. It's a fun and easy way for members to participate in your community.
Ning 3.0 Features Still to Come:
Updated activity feeds, Events, video feature for embeds, RSS feed modules, Paid Access, and more.
