NC for Hire

If you recently migrated from Ning 2.0 to Ning 3.0 you may have discovered that your Attachments on Forums inside Groups may be missing. In the future, this may we worked out, but in the meantime, this is what I am doing to remedy.  

About your missing files:  Hopefully you have them backed up.    You could have downloaded them using the old archiver but chances are you may have to go into the Wayback Machine to retreive them.. (remember there is also a /topics/ after /forum inside the old 2.0). 

As for getting the problems solved. Here is a little video walkthrough i made today while testing out Loom recorder.  Sorry for the lag in some places...my internet was slower than usual today..

Sorry, your browser doesn’t support HTML5 videos. Download it.

Ning 3.0 Tip: Download Button

 

In this video I'll show you how to reupload those attachments while embedding them at the same time into your discussions so that you can regain your search engine traffic for those pages.   

For this example it is best to create a workflow with just 3 tabs open (instead of 15 like i did in this video... sorry for the length).  

  1. The Edit page for the Discussion you are updating
  2. This Code Pen to change out the URL for generating your Embed Iframe
  3. Your Google Webmaster Console to resubmit to search engines after update.

 

See the Pen PDF View or any docs view using gdocs by JFarrow (@JFarrow) on CodePen.
