What if you have items on your 3.0 site which are there to attract and entice a new visitor, but you don't need/want them to show to an existing member? Things like a testimonial, "about us" video, other banners or sliders? You can hide them all to a signed in member (which allows more true content to be viewed)..........by inserting a "class" in each and using one custom code to hide them all. Note: This only works if the items are in a HTML/text box - not if in the above-header area.
Place the following in front of your HTML code. It gives a "class name" to whatever content is placed between the <div>
YOUR CONTENT OR BANNER CODE GOES HERE
Place this in your Custom Code area. It will hide anything that has the "hideit" class:
<!-- Hidden areas when signed in -->
if (ning.CurrentProfile != null)
<!-- end hidden areas when signed in -->
I have learned soooo much since being with Ning and I cannot thank all the generous Ning Creators enough. I try to pay it forward in whatever small way I can. Hat tip on this one to SweetPotato when he helped me "hide" my slider when a member is signed in. This has opened up many more ideas for me (and believe me, I'm not a coder!) I don't think this is any big design secret that I'm giving away here but to a schlep like me, it's gold! *lol*
