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.

  • Bug Report (?)

     

    In Design Studio for past 4 years I have had titles of modules (on front page) aligned to Middle.

    Today all titles of all modules on my home page are aligned to Left.

     

    I look in  Design Studio to realign, in case it happened by mistake, though I have not been in Design Studio for many months now - and it says they are aligned to Middle. I change and change back just to make sure, but even though It says aligned to middle the titles are aligned to left.

     

    I don't like how it looks. It must be a bug on your end? Can you see if it is? Thank you.

    • Hi!

      Thank you for alerting the issue!

      I have checked it and it seems to reproduce on my test site as well - so I`ve passed the report to our Tech team - I hope it will be fixed soon. 

      Please accept my apologies for the inconveniences. 

      Best regards,

      The NING Team

    • Hi there!

      Please stop spamming under this discussion, if you scroll this page a bit to the bottom you will see my answer to your inquiry.

      If you don't stop I would have to start removing the same comments you are posting.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

  • May I ask why am I not seeing IP address of members applying anymore? Is it to do with GPDR? It was very useful to check if IP was black listed as spammer. Maybe it is just coincidence but now I no longer see IP address in Pending members.

     

    Thanks.

    • Hi there!

      This doesn't have any relation to the new regulation of the European Union. The IP address cannot be obtained sometimes if the user uses anonymizers or ipv6. 

      We do apologize for any confusion this may cause.

      Best wishes,

      Ning Team.

      • Thanks, Kyryl

  • Push notifications

    • Hi Manuel!

      I haven't seen you here for a while hope that you are doing fine :-) Unfortunately the work on the push notifications has been frozen prior to the other tasks, which are more important since affecting the essential functionalities of the platform. For example storage functionality affects every and each file that has ever been uploaded to the network, including pictures avatars etc.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.
