NC for Hire

After over 13 years and experience with all versions of Ning, i too become often reminded that are more things to learn about this platform.  Here are 2 things I learned just today while building out my community's annual event, International Surveyors Week 2019.

 

Secret Thing I learned #1:   How to create buttons which allow members to follow groups with a click

add =join to the end of any Group URL when you share it.

Secret Thing I learned #2: How to make your embedded videos NOT autoplay

your normal embed code for any video uploaded to ning looks like this

<video
autoplay
poster="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1036825496?profile=RESIZE_710x&amp;ss=00%3A00%3A01.000&amp;width=400"
controls>
<source src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1036825496?profile=default" type="video/mp4">
Sorry, your browser doesn’t support HTML5 videos. <a href="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1036825496?profile=default">Download it.</a>
</video>

remove the word autoplay to stop the video from playing when page loads.

Contact me or ask below if you need help.  If it helped you solve a problem, say so..  this community needs reviving

  • Hi JF, You can add a little code to remove the AutoPlay for videos so you don't have to edit it out manually. Here is how

    <script>
    x$(document).ready(function() {
    x$('video').removeAttr("autoplay");
    });
    </script>
