FORUM

Kos mentioned this about having the follow button at the top of the page rather than the bottom, now this code is for Ning 3 not 2 ( I don't have a two to try code out for it ).

So what this code does is move that follow button to the top of the page and also to the top of the forum discussions as well. I also added a little code to make the font bigger while also adding a little text into the button so it makes it clearer when following how to un-follow. Below is the code and also some demo images.

First part is to add some code into your site and pages custom code section, also you will notice that I have added the pages name for my forums so you will need to change this for your own forums name. For example if you have yours called siteForum then it would look like this .page-siteForum then the rest of the code. The parts in bold are what you need to change.

<script>
x$(".page-forums .module-footer .js-followUnfollow").prependTo( ".module-header");
x$(".discussionDetailPage .js-followUnfollow").prependTo( ".entry-headline.media-frame");
</script>

And here is the css which goes in your design studio custom css and once again change the parts in bold for your forum name

.page-forums .js-followUnfollow{ width:100%; text-align:right; margin-bottom:10px }
.page-forums .js-followUnfollow .button-tiny a{ font-size:12px }
.page-forums .js-followUnfollow .button-tiny .is-selected::after{content:"( Click to unfollow )"; display:inline-block }
