  • "The Chat Feature is available for both Ning 3.0 and 2.0 platforms."

    How do we activate this on 2.0 sites?

    Also, does "groups" mean we can have more than one chat room at a time?

    • Hi there!

      Unfortunately, the new chat for Ning 2.0 is not available yet, as it's necessary to resolve some server load issue at the moment. apologies for the inconveniences.

      Regarding the group you are totally right, you can have more than one chatroom at the same time, it's simply necessary to invite more than one member to your private conversation and it would be automatically converted into the group. After you will be able to rename it, change the logo etc.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

    I can't see the admin options. If I click on the cog it just says that you're logged in to chat..

    I'd like to see the list of who's online too.

    • Hi Philip,

      As Kos has mentioned you can see all chat participants if you press on the title of the main chat group.

      And each online member is marked with the green light sign near the avatar. 

      Also, I have added your vote to the suggestion that I have posted earlier regarding the list of online members.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

    • To view who's online, you need to click............

      • Thanks Kos but that doesn't work for me. I just get a list of about 70 members and I don't believe these are all online.

        I want to see the members who are currently online on the main pop-up....as it worked before the switch-over earlier in the week.

        • Ah good point.  It must be showing who's logged in on the site itself - not just the ones logged into Chat.   Send Ning an email to check out the connection.  support@ning.com

          • It does the green light stays on their avatar when their signed inn , its somewhat like facebook chat the list of members stays there but the green light disappears once they log out

            • I have tested it with friends.  It shows them being online when they are not.  It seems there are some bugs to work out.

  • Sound is not working in Firefox or Chrome
