Announcements from Ning

Welcome Landing Page Builder

Hello everyone!

Recently we have promised you to make a big announcement related to the new feature release. While it is still in beta, we can not keep silence anymore. The feature we wish to unveil is the result of collaborative work of the whole team. And needless to say that it’s one of the hugest updates we have announced here on creators. It was really hard to keep calm and not to mention anything regarding this new functionality during the communication with you for the last 6 months in order to make this surprise possible.

Long story short, let us introduce you Landing Page Builder (LPB). This is a new drag and drop page builder which gives you the possibility to create a page for your network in the fast and easy way. Builder itself is allowing you to change the web page without looking at some abstract modules and columns, it’s closer to the work of the sculptor, who is able to touch the stone he is working with. The only one difference, the sculptor doesn’t have a user-friendly interface. And of course, how could we leave pro users aside - with the LPB you get the full control over the HTML code, CSS and js code of the network. And by saying “full control”l we mean completely full, plus integrated code checker will be helping you to police typos in an easy and convenient way.

We can talk about the LPB for ages since it’s the milestone in the history of Ning, but it's better to try it out. Just follow these simple instructions to get started:

  1. Go to your network admin panel and select Site & Pages in the sidebar;
  2. Click “Add a landing page” in the main navigation menu;
  3. Enter the landing page title and tab title in the corresponding text fields;
  4. Define the URL for your new landing page;
  5. Click “Save”.

That’s it - your landing page is now created! For more information and recommendations visit our Help Center: click here

Please keep in mind that it’s still beta of the LPB which is showing the direction we are going to move design studio on. That’s why your feedback is extremely important for us, so don’t hesitate to share any ideas here on creators or with any of our support agents.

Hope you would be excited with it like we are.   

Sincerely yours,

The Ning Team.

      • Hi Anna,

        Thank you for your reply and repoduction efforts. The error comes up on Preview screen.

        I am using Chrome v6. I am concerned that the page has not saved correctly and I've tried opening it again and I get the standard template with none of my changes.

        Thanks for your help.

        Gillian

        • Hi Gillian, I get this alot too. I have updated chrome to the latest version, Marie

          • Hello!

            Could you please specify, do you receive an error message while trying to save the changes? Or does it happen when you edit the page?

            Also, could you please provide us with the screenshot or the text of the error message?

            Looking forward to your reply!

            Best regards,

            The NING Team

        • Hello, Gillian!

          Please, check the inbox.

          I sent you the reply via private message due to the screencast attached to it.

          • I would like to join Gillians complaint by adding this observation. What is going on is the Auto save is too quick after we type code in.

            it seems if you pause for less than 1 sec while writing code the cursor knocks you up to line 5 and the auto save kicks in. By the time your keyboard has input the rest of what you have typed you have destroyed your Title of page and the message pops up.

            I am suggesting that you relax the autosave and cursur jumping to 9 secs after someone types in code.

            This will satisfy the pace of some of us who do not code everyday and will allow us to stop breaking other code that is not where our cursor is.

            • Hello,

              Thank you for the feedback you provided us with. This error is common for the Design Mode if you are typing the codes with the Autodeploy function. 

              Please, deactivate this option and you will be able to type codes properly.

  • Hi there,

    In the tampletes I can see Blog. How can we create a Blog with that?

     

    Thanks

    • Hello!

      At the moment the functionality of the landing page and the network is not connected, and it is not possible to create any content through the landing page. LP is a way to showcase the content on your site. So, for example, in a case with blogs - http://take.ms/yQKZN you can take one of the blogs from your network, copy the title, image, a couple of beginning sentences and put a link to the actual blog on your site - http://take.ms/fHl49

      Here is what I did as an example - http://take.ms/bbM2a ;

      Best regards,
