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

This is how you can make the account box stand out on your network, change alerts to comments. Use this code.

<script type="text/javascript">
x$(document).ready(function() {
x$("a.xg_sprite-alert").attr("href", "http://"+top.location.host+"/profiles/comment/list?attachedToType=User&attachedTo=" + ning.CurrentProfile.id).html("Comments");
});
</script>

Here is the code if you want to add extra links before the default account links.

<script type="text/javascript">
x$(document).ready(function() {
// Insert content in Account Module
x$("div#xg_module_account ul").prepend('<li><a href="/profiles">Profile</a></li>');
x$("#xg_module_account").after('<div align="center" class="xg_module"></div>');
});
</script>

Here is the code if you want to add a link after the default account links.

<script type="text/javascript">
x$(document).ready(function() {
// Insert content in Account Module
x$("div#xg_module_account ul").append('<li><a href="/chat">Live Chat</a></li>');
x$("#xg_module_account").after('<div align="center" class="xg_module"></div>');
});
</script>

  • This goes in your custom code / analytics area of the network.

    • Alerts are never used, to be honest, they are app alerts and no activity ever happens in them, ever. They are a waste of space and to utilize that space a little easier, members comments should be put in place so that it is a useful feature.

  • Cool code!  Where's you get it from? Just wondering :-)

    • <script type="text/javascript">x$(document).ready(function() {x$("a.xg_sprite-alert").attr("href", "http://"+top.location.host+"/profiles/comment/list?attachedToType=User&attachedTo="+ning.CurrentProfile.id).html("Comments");});

        • That is what I just posted in the main thread.

    • You gave it to me some time ago.

  • This kind of code's been floating around for years. :-)  This is from 2010...

    I have no idea who thought of it first, but its a cool tip and I'm glad to see it coming around once again.

    Best wishes!

    • I knew I saw this before! Was trying to trace it down. It is a handy piece of code for sure.

      • I googled the key part of the code and there's only 10 results on Google.  It shows dates when it was mentioned too. :-)

        But yeah, Alerts don't seem to be too helpful and its nice to have a link to your own Comment Wall right in your Account module.  So I hope this cool tip helps some people.

        Best wishes and a happy weekend to all!

    • F Y I members can still access their alerts by going to their inbox and choosing alerts from the links in there.
