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


I embeded a survey onto one of my network's pages and it works beautifully.   Embeding the survey instead of linking to it keeps members on your site and looks more professional.


I believe it would work in any text box, you can change the width, height and appearance.  They really offer quite a bit with their free basic plan.

  • This is great to know. Big fan of SurveyMonkey. Thanks for sharing.
    • Random question, but isn't their office in the same building as Ning's? :P

      Katie, thanks for the tip. Surveys are a huge component of my site, and this will definitely help me out.
  • thanks for the tip, for embedded survey I have so far used polldaddy, but this may work better, I'll try!
  • Doesn't seem to embed in group forum posts.
  • I'm actually having trouble embedding my SurveyMonkey survey into the main text box of my homepage. It comes up as a blank box! I'm working in Firefox on a Mac -- and yes, I'm doing this in HTML mode. Any ideas?


    Here's the code SurveyMonkey gave me:


    <div id="surveyMonkeyInfo"><div><script src=""> </script></div>Create your <a href="">free online surveys</a> with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.</div>

    • Oh never mind! I figured it out. I just needed to make the box a little narrower.
  • Hi, I've been trying to embed a Survey Monkey poll on my NING, and it's not working. Any advice on how I can fix this?
  • I don't see survey monkey as an app.  Can we still do this?

  • There is a big compatibility problem between Surveymonkey and Ning: Whenever you wanna embed the code into a forum, group discussion or blog the code doesn't work, hence the survey is useless. Surveymonkey will only work if you embed the code into a "page" on Ning.

    Ning is really limiting a lot of functions. I wonder why that is ... .
