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

In our events page we have an options drop down where members can choose to edit, delete etc for their event. What this tip does is change the options list into a nice open toolbar and when viewing on mobile it goes back to the list drop down.

Here is an example showing the new toolbar

So here is the code for you to do this

First a little code to go in your site&pages custom code

// Add Class to events detail page and change text for featured event
x$('.eventDetail').text('Event Featured');

Next we add some css for the styling and this goes in your design studio custom code

@media only screen and ( min-width:771px ){
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown-button{ display:none }
.eventDetail .content-actions #eventPage-optionsDropdown{ display:block!important }
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown-list{ width:auto; position:relative; border:none }
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown-list > li { padding: 4px; display: inline-block; float: left; }
.eventDetail .content-actions .linkbar{ width:100%; clear:both }
.eventDetail .content-actions .linkbar > li{ float:right;  }
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown a{ margin-right:5px }
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown{ float:right }
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown a{ padding: 6px 8px;border-radius:4px }
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown a:hover{ background-color:royalblue; color:white }
.eventDetail{ background-color:darkblue;color:white; border-radius:4px }

@media only screen and ( max-width:771px ){
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown-list{
box-shadow: 0px 8px 7px darkgray;
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown a{
color: #5c5151
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown-button {
background-color: #d1e0f8;
.eventDetail .content-actions .optionsDropdown{

That's it, you can change all the colours etc for your own site by editing the color parts of the code.
