500 error on some Ning Networks


Due to the maintenance in the Ning systems, 500 errors might appear on some Ning Networks.
It usually takes up to 20 minutes for our technical team to solve such issues.
We do apologize for the inconveniences, but the maintenance works are necessary for stabilizing our systems and improving their functionality in future.

  • My forum's newest posts feed on the home page is now tamed. Thanks for that at last, Ning. Most things seem to be ticking along nicely today. Some of the links between the back-end bits seem pretty slow, but if there has to be some give somewhere, I'd much rather it was in the back-end!

    • Hi Hugh!
      We are glad to hear that the issue has been fixed on your network.
      Please accept our apologies for the temporary inconveniences and have a great day!
      Best regards,
      Ning Team.

  • Now the RSS outputs are screwed up.  I know it's Ning b/c it mentions 'bedazzle'.  There's nothing wrong with the feed itself.  *sigh*  Ticket has been filed but this is just crazy!  Every day it's something else and the problems are not getting resolved.  Come on guys.

    • Hi there!

I love the system but I think yawl need to work faster I cant run a business with all these errors and missing functions.

    Hello, I am facing problems with my Ning network again. We cannot access it properly. Error 500 is the main problem members of my network are facing. Then since yesterday what we add to the network is not appearing on the Home Page. 
    Sometimes the matter we add is disappearing after clicking on 'save' button.
    I request you to look into these problems and get them rectified.

    I got the same old reply from Nign Help center..

    Hi there,

    We have checked your account and everything seems to be okay. Please check it and let us know if you have the problem from your end. 
    Thank you for using Ning.


    I sent this reply...

    Don't give the same old reply over and over again. I am fed up. Just now one member joined my network and it didn't appear on the Home Page. Do you think we are lying when we complain? 

    So the problems persist. When we complain , we get the same old message over and over again. 

    Ning, when will you improve?

  • I'm doing my best to remain patient but here we go again.  Today we're unable to add "features" and they are missing in 2.0.  Seriously???  I realize that when Ning was purchased (each time) the crew we were let go.  I also realize and am thrilled this new buyer is finally devoting some cash flow to personnel to monitor Creators, reach out on tickets and at least on developer to fix the issues.  It just 'feels' as though the developer/engineer (whatever you want to call him) is disabling things he doesn't understand and the websites are feeling the pain.  Just the idea that broadcast messages aren't working and that all of our forum posts are filling the page instead of the 8 or 10 we select, makes my brain explode!  How can we possibly stay in touch with our members.........unless we use a third party.  Our home page designs have imploded.  That's just crazy.  ANY other website out there would be ALL over this and fix it promptly.  Maybe they need another engineer?  Maybe they need just one with more experience?  idk.  It just feels like he's removing code he doesn't 'get' and then waits to see if anyone complains.  "Oh, that's what that does?"  Come on now.  That's not how you run a business.

    Yes I've filed a ticket.  No need to respond here Anna.  Just needed to vent.
