NC for Hire

This is a simple little block of code that will add some engagement icons/links to your Ning Network. I created 2 versions, a vertical and a horizontal. All of the links are ready to go for a Ning Network. All you have to do is copy/paste to a text box.

The icons may not be the best for everyone. You can find great royalty free icons here:

You will see the licensing for each icon in upper left of screen.


Working Example:

Profile Add Blog Add Forum Add Event Add Group Add Music Add Photo Add Video
Profile +Blog +Forum +Event +Group +Music +Photos +Videos



Wide Text Box - Horizontal Version (screenshot)


  • Edit Text Box and click on HTML button.
  • Copy/paste code into Text Box and Save.
  • Done.


Narrow Text Box - Vertical Version (screenshot)


  • Edit Text Box and click on HTML button.
  • Copy/paste code into Text Box and Save.
  • Done.



The sweet little iphone icons were put together by

`-kol on deviantART


You may want to upload the icons to your site to insure optimal loading time:

    You can these tips and more at I going rogue. No one can stop me from advertising a network other than my own. :-). Jen did not put me up to this I do this of my own wackiness and not even she can stop me. Ha Ha Ha! Evil laugh!

      Lordy, thanks Garfield. You gave me a laugh and a smile.

      Hope you enjoy the icons/links, Robert.


      Best to you as always,


  • NC for Hire

    Happy you like them Dana.



  • I did something similar to this on my "Topics" page... Mine have links next to site topics, though. I'm thinking about making them site-wide, too. (We use regular text links everywhere else.)
    • NC for Hire

      Hey Janettee,

      Good deal! Hope you're well and good.



      • Thanks:) Yup, good... Just super busy. I'm working a site for a client, as well as on a project for work right now...


        For all Creators who are pet lovers who live in/near Oklahoma City, OK, I'm going to be a photographer at the event my boss is co-sponsoring (I work at a pet-sitting company)... Feel free to come by and introduce yourself and get a photo:) More info here. If you'd just like to see photos of cute doggy goodness, feel free to check here. The event is Saturday, so the photos may not be up until Sunday.

        • NC for Hire

          Busy is good. :-) good luck with the event.



          • I tried to thank you last night, but I couldn't reply from my Iphone:( So... thank you for the good luck wishes!
