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.

    Just getting to the Landing Page. Looks and feels a bit like SquareSpace, very sleek! First experience and observation, freezes Chrome during editing. I run the latest version of Chrome. But, looking great! Thanks, Ning.

    • Hello!

      Thank you so much for your feedback! If you are editing your landing page in Developer mode, I can recommend you to disable an autodeploy function - http://take.ms/pEaHM
      When enabled the system constantly tries to save the changes in the code. 

      Feel free to share with us your thoughts on possible improvements or additional functionality, we would highly appreciate it!

      Best regards,

      The NING Team

  • Hello Anna, do this work for Ning 2.0

    • Hello!

      No, unfortunately, the landing page builder is available only for 3.0 platform.

        If you make the file manager feature available to 2.0 sites you would be granting essentially the same feature to 2.0 Network Creators

        • Hello!

          But the file manager feature is available on 2.0 platform for Pro plans.

  • It would be very helpful to provide a video showing how to create the page and explaining the benefits of having such a page.

    • Hello, Alex!

       

      Thank you for the request. I think this is a great idea.

      I reported this query to the Developers Team and they will check what we can do with this.

  • Hello,

    I have started building a landing page recently, and it all seems to work well.

    However, an error message regularly pops up on the page, making me wonder if any of the changes I have made have been saved.

    The error appear when scrolling through the page in Preview mode. The error message is this:

    Previously when I have clicked the 'Save & Close' button the changes I have made (quite a few!) have been lost. How do I avoid this happening again?

    Many thanks for any help or guidance.

    Gillian

    • Hello, Gillian!

      We tested your landing page in the Preview Mode and couldn't reproduce the issue.

      Please, specify whether you received this error in the Preview or Design Mode.

      Best regards,

      The Ning Team
