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

This tip is to show how you can the boring old gray options drop down list into something with a little more colour. You can change the setting to fit your site in the code.


.optionsDropdown-list background color: this is the colour for the list itself

.optionsDropdown a background color: this is for each of the links

.optionsDropdown-button background color: this is for the options button

color: this is the text colour

Here is an example

First we need just to add a small bit of custom code for the events page, this code goes in your site&pages custom code

// Add Class to events detail page

Next is all the css for the colour changes, this goes in your design studio custom css

/* Profile Settings for the options drop down box and list And Events detail page drop down list */
.profileCoverArea-actions .optionsDropdown-button, .eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown-button {
 background-color: #d1e0f8;
.profileCoverArea-actions .optionsDropdown a, .eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown a{
 padding: 6px 8px;border-radius:4px; color:black;
.profileCoverArea-actions .optionsDropdown a:hover, .eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown a:hover{
 text-decoration:none; background-color:royalblue; color:white;
.profileCoverArea-actions, .eventDetail{
 background-color:darkblue;color:white; border-radius:4px;
.profileCoverArea-actions .optionsDropdown-list, .eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown-list{
 background-color:#c9d3f2; border-radius:4px; box-shadow: 0px 8px 7px darkgray;
