Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.


I've done a rather full on redesign of the profile pages on my sandbox, mainly to do with that bio-box. I've attached the code as a text file, since there is a bit of code there for it, and quite a bit of the code is borrowed from or inspired by other Creators, such as John Bizley and Soaring Eagle.  I had to zoom out to take this screenshot, so it looks smaller than it really is.  I also have no idea if this is responsive for tablets or mobiles.

  • I like it, it looks pretty good. Good job.

  • looks nice so would we have to change the pics etc when using this?  also will everyone be able to change there profile or just your own?

    • It affects all member profiles automatically.  The only thing that would be needed is to make sure people know that the dimensions of the cover pic are different than the default size (but that happens between different themes as well). Otherwise everything should adjust to the code.

      Of course you would likely have to change some numbers and colours to suit your theme and personal design, which is just a matter of trial and error :)

      • thank you so much :-)

  • Wow! Very well done. Excellent layout. I hope Ning developers are taking notes. :)

  • I am missing a few things in your layout. Can you walk me through this? I don't see the Add As Friend button or does that show up when a member requests?. The profile box is offset to the left of the feed box and i am missing the column left of the feed box. Other than that everything works fine. If there is suppose to be able to add a layout in the tool box for the My Page i am not seeing it.

    • The Add as Friend button can only be seen on other profiles, so you can add other members as friends, so it might be best to view the changes while looking at someone elses profile.

      The left column on profile pages is added by changing the layout of the Members page, so anything you add to the members list page is also added to the profile pages (side columns that is, not main columns).  Took me a while to figure that bit out lol.

      To adjust where the profile box sits, left and right adjust the numbers below; the width specifies how wide the profile box is, if it is too wide it will shift and sit below the profile photo.  The margin left adjusts how far to the right of the profile photo the profile box will sit. If you adjust the margin too much you will have to adjust the width as well so the box stays next to the profile pic.

      .profileCoverArea-box .row div.profileCoverArea-bio

      Just for note, to adjust how far below the cover photo the profile box sits you adjust the number in this part...

      .profileCoverArea .profileCoverArea-box{ 
      • LOL. Here i am looking for the layouts in the My Page tab. Never thought it was in the members tab. Oh well...learn something new every day. Everything started working now. Thanks for highlighting those codes. I will be playing with those for sure. :)

        • I see the friend button now to. Yay!

        • No problem, let me know if you need anything else :-)
