Overview of Q3 and Ning Q4 2017 plan.

Better late than never - here is the product plan Q3 overview and Plans for Q4.
As you might have noticed, all the promised features have been released. We did our best to keep the deadlines and fit your expectations.
So here are Q3 updates:

1. Paid Access is finally live. It is even more than just old Paid Access, it is a great e-commerce platform with Stripe and PayPal integration. For now it is only available for beta-group, so if you forgot to ask for beta access, don’t miss your chance till Nov 3d.
2. Audio feature is live. Now you can easily create playlists, audio lessons, add audio tracks, podcasts, and any mp3 files. The feature has got a completely new design, which we think looks awesome.
3. Polls. Completely new feature for Ning, only available for Ning 3.0. Using Polls all Ning NCs can easily get up to date feedback from Network members.
4. The Design Studio got a few new templates, a bunch of new fonts and backgrounds to make it more user-friendly and provide flexibility of options you have in order to make your network modern and unique even without coding skills.
5. SSL certification had been implemented for all ning domain names.

Keeping in mind that we are living in the era of mobile devices all new features have been developed in a way so they would look great on mobile devices.

You could not miss how the Creators network changed, which is completely Kyryl’s merit, as is the new guide for Facebook integration.

And now as for the next steps, we are going to make:

1. Member ranking system
2. E-commerce platform wider development (donations, network membership, groups)
3. MailChimp Integration
4. SSL for custom domains, completely automated process.
5. Push notifications

Besides, there are lots of other improvements on the way, more related to back end, like the rework of the activity feed architecture and migration script (these are just the biggest ones so we simply can't help but highlight them).

As always we are happy to receive feedback from you, so feel free to drop us a line.

Sincerely yours,
Ning Team.

                    • Thanks, I have updated the suggestion with your notes :-)

                      When I would hear something about this I'll let you know.

                      Best wishes,

                      Ning Team.

                    • To be honest, I think it depends on the SIZE of the network and how heavily they use Chat.  I think a "week" is most likely best because any heavy discussions should be documented as a post within the network.  You really don't want Chat weighted down (imo)

                    • No, not really although I will say, when I initially open chat, the chat screen is blank and I have to refresh the browser for chat to fully open and see posts made.  I've found that strange but never reported it.  It does it Firefox and Chrome.   Like I said, a tiny 'glitch'

                      The rest of the day we're up and chatting with no problems.

                    • Oh right, I get it, that's a bug. Did not know that.

                    • Hi Kos,

                      I have created the suggestion to add such option to teh chat feature. Do you think it would be ok if the messages would be kept for 1 month?

                      Looking forward to hearing from you.

                      Best regards,

                      Ning Team.

                    • Hi Kos,

                      You are welcome :-) I'll maybe change it a bit later when I would have an idea how to make it not infinite.

                      By the way haven't you noticed any glitches in the browser when the chatroom is being opened for a long time, at least for about a half an hour?

                      Best regards,

                      Ning Team.

                    • Hi there!

                      The script simply hides the profiles which are not marked by the system as offline, it doesn't fix the bug when the member is offline but it's still shown as online one, unfortunately, this issue could be fixed only on teh servers side. No worries this is the issue has been reported already.

                      Best wishes,

                      Ning Team.

                    • Thanks for taking the time, Kyryl.

                      It does not work for me. It removed maybe half the people, but as this screenshot shows there are others left ( no one online when takeing screen shot except me) and you can see the green light beside these people, some of whom have clicked in to chat weeks ago and still show as ''on''. I put it in Custom Code in dashboard.

                    • Thank you for code #2

                    • Re: #2 but imagine you're a large (let's say educational) website with numerous members holding several chat discussions on different topics.  Now you're going to see OLD discussions from months one itsy bitsy tiny chat module at the bottom of the page?????  Come on Kryrl.  Seriously?  It's not that LARGE.   lol
