I've been cleaning my Ning Network up for our 16th Birthday celebration as a community and I came across a great trick for moving your primary navigation up into the account bar.
Simply add the following to your custom code bottom section near the top of other codes..
// movenav to before ningbar
I am searching today for a way to make this script load faster so there isn't a 1 second lag but there you have it. Perhaps Bizz will know a way..
Let me know if you have any questions or need help with your ning community.
Have you tried using CSS to move the bar?
Yes but in order to make this happen i needed jquery
Justin, note that the dashboardBarWrap only exists for the admin and not normal members so you would either have to move it before the ningbar-userLinks.linkbar then might a bit of css to align it or other than that use the design studio to have it sit below the bar
great suggestion... however can't seem to get that to work at all. Also would love to figure out a way to have this script run when the page loads...ill keep playing with it... good to see you Bizz!
It looks like in your code there is a period missing before the ningbar-userLinks, it should be like this
any ideas on how to get the logo up into the bar as well before the navigation?
You could but then the logo would have to be small as the bar would have to become big if you wanted a big logo which would then give you a big black bar at the top. The alternative would be to keep the Nav and logo in the header where it is as normal then you could just move the Account bar stuff into that section instead.
