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.

  • I am trying the new option of "landing page" I have put the title and tab title in the corresponding text fields. and I have saved changes. Now the edit button appears active but, every time I click on it, it sends me to the index of my website and it ends there. Impossible to edit content or design ... do something wrong?

    I do not have it clear ... this is to add pages with own content? What is it for?

    • The landing page is the first page which is presented to the visitors of your site. As usual, the short information of the network is located there, maybe some calls to action fields etc. It used for the SEO mostly and in order to involve the users in the life of the site, to make them register and so on. However, the builder is not making it as obligatory, so you can use the page created with it for any purpose you wish or you can use it as your website is down for maintence, But in order for visitors to see it first you have to make it the homepage. This is my sign up landing page and you can also make another landing page for your website to be down under maintence but people can still click on other links of your website to sign in if your website is down for maintence.

        • Hi there Fernando. I am sorry about that. Can you please provide me with some screenshots so I can check on what you mean and hopefully I can help you or a staff member of ning can help you further.

            • Ohh the video is no longer available? I learn a lot from videos. Is there any way that someone can make a video on how to create a landing page ?

              • Hello!

                Unfortunately, there is no video guidance yet, only a written overview on Help Center, here is the link if you need it. 

                We will discuss the video tutorial option as well.

            • Hi there!

              Thank you for the recording! A few networks have addressed the same issue already so we are looking into this at the moment. 

              I am sorry that you are not able to check the new functionality yet, but I hope it's going to be fixed soon. 

              I will keep you updated. 

              Best regards,

            • Oh thank you for that video that was very helpful :) Yeah I am not sure why it is doing that :/ mine is not doing that all. Hmmm try to contact ning support on the ning support page on the live chat in the right hand corner at the bottom at http://ning.com They can forward the problem to the tech team and the tech team should take a look at it and notify you when they get done fixing it.
