NC for Hire

If you visit your Ning Community from your phone often this is a time saver to check out..

If so, you probably have that site bookmarked in your browser so you can quickly launch it whenever you want to visit it.

Did you know you can actually place an icon for your favorite site right on your Home screen?

In fact, you can even create an icon for any specific page, not just the site’s home page.

Having a dedicated icon for your favorite website or page will allow you to go straight to it with a single tap! Just tap the icon, and boom – you’ll instantly see it displayed in your preferred web browser. 

You can easily create direct-link icons to your favorite sites and pages on both Apple iOS and Android devices. Just follow the steps below that correspond to your device and browser.

If you have an iPhone or iPad…

1 – Visit the website in your Safari browser.

2 – Tap the Action button (the square button with the arrow pointing upwards).

3 – Tap Add to Home Screen.

4 – Give the shortcut icon a name that will allow you to quickly recognize what the icon is for.

5 – Tap the Add button. The icon should now be on your Home screen.

If you have an Android phone or tablet…

If you have an Android device, the procedure for creating an icon shortcut to your favorite website will depend on which mobile web browser you’re using.

Follow these steps if you’re using the stock Android browser (the one that looks like a “globe”):

1 – Visit the website in your Android browser.

2 – Tap the three vertical dots to the right of the address bar to display the browser’s menu.

3 – Tap Add to Bookmarks.

4 – Tap the down-arrow in the “Add to” field and select Home screen from the drop-down menu.

5 – Tap the title that’s displayed in the “Label” field and give the shortcut icon a name that will allow you to quickly recognize what the icon is for.

6 – Tap OK. The icon should now be on your Home screen.

Follow the steps below if you’re using Google Chrome:

1 – Visit the website in your Chrome browser.

2 – Tap the three vertical dots to the right of the address bar to display the browser’s menu.

3 – Tap Add to Home screen.

4 – Give the shortcut icon a name that will allow you to quickly recognize what the icon is for.

5 – Tap Add.

Follow the steps below if you’re using Opera Mini:

1 – Visit the website in your Opera Mini browser.

2 – Tap the three vertical dots to the left of the address bar to display the browser’s menu.

3 – Tap Add to home screen.

4 – Tap the title that’s displayed and give the shortcut icon a name that will allow you to quickly recognize what the icon is for.

5 – Tap Add. The icon should now be on your Home screen.

That’s all there is to it. From now on you’ll be able to go straight to your favorite(s) with a single tap!
