What’s new on NING?

The new year is approaching, and we are busy working on new updates to make sure that NING enters 2020 with as many new features as possible. This time, we have three awesome updates for you. Here’s a brief overview of each.

 

1. ‘Add content’ button

 

You can now fit any of your content blocks with a button that allows users to start contributing new content right away. This makes the process much easier than before, which is supposed to encourage your network members to share their content with the community more often.

However, if you want to disable this feature, simply go to Social Site Manager > Site & Pages in your control panel and tick the “Hide 'Add Content' button” checkbox.

2. Advanced search by headings and content

 

You and your network members can now save time when searching for the required content on NING websites. Simply enter a keyword or key phrase in the search bar, and get the results instantaneously (given that your query matches any existing headings or content).

The feature can be effectively used to search for various types of content, including blog posts, articles, forum discussions, videos and events.

3. NING custom email address

 

The feature that many Network Creators were looking forward to is now live. You can create a custom email address based on your NING domain name. 

Once you purchase it, you get an option to set up a custom email address based on this domain name using any mailing service (like G Suite, for example). To do it, go to Social Site Manager > Domain Mapping in your control panel and configure MX records according to the guidelines provided by your email service.

We hope you like the new features! More updates are on the way, including:

Flexible adjustment of administrative roles;
Displaying friends’ activities in the Activity Feed;
Possibility to follow network members.

Stay tuned!

  • Hi Anastasia,

    I tried the new search on my test Ning 3 site looking for content related to the term "Beatles." The results started with 576 member profiles, and then content in blogs, discussions, photos, etc.

    Is that the way it will return results?

    Thanks,

    Steve

  • Any chance of getting a mobile app anytime soon? I've got heavy competition and they're all app-based.

    • Hello Rachella!

      We will definitely bring a mobile application at some point, but I am afraid it will not be too soon. Simply because we haven't started working on it yet, and such development will surely take some time. 

      Best regards,

      The NING Team

  • Hi Creators!

    Please, note, "Add content" button is going to be released at the beginning of the next week.

    Best regards,

    • I hope it's available for the activity feed..

      • Hello!

        This update will bring the "Add content" button only for single type content module, but in the future, we will work on adding it to the Activity Feed too. 

        Bets regards,

      Will the search features appear next week as well? 

      • Hello!

        Only the "Add content" button was scheduled for release this week, the other 2 updates were already live at the moment of posting this update. Is there something wrong? 

        Best regards,

        The NING Team
