NC for Hire

There are several reasons for the want to customize the number of profiles which are displayed per page on the Members Page of your ning network.  For example, if you have only One column of members (image#3), visitors to your site who are interested in the other members who are present will have to turn several pages when sifting, thus increasing # of page views.  If you would rather have only Two columns of members (Image #2), you will accomplish the same thing but may only want Two instead of Three (Image #1) for aesthetic reasons.  I am going to show you how to control the number of members which show up per page on your ning network with one simple block of CSS, added to your Advanced section of the new design studio.

 

By default, you will see 3 columns of members on your members page of your network, like so:

 

Let's say you would only like 2 columns because you think the 3 columns look to cluttered, as I have on my network and as shown in this image below:

Here is the CSS code that you need to add:

 

.xg_widget_profiles_friend .member_item, .xg_widget_profiles_members .member_item {width:255px !important;float:left !important;margin-right: 1px !important;clear:none !important;}

 

 

OK....lets go for broke and imagine that you only want 1 column because you hope to maximize the number of page views in the member section, take a look:

Here is the CSS code that you need to add:

.xg_widget_profiles_friend .member_item, .xg_widget_profiles_members .member_item {width:355px !important;float:left !important;margin-right: 1px !important;clear:none !important;}

[Notice for the 1 column option, you need to only change the number in red from 255px to 355px.]  Personally, I think visitors will get tired of paginating with the one column, but there are reasons for doing it this way.

 

Enjoy!

      • would be great. I won't be sitting here waiting idly though. I'll try and give it a go myself. No idea about CSS but it's the least I can do.

        The only way to learn too. 

  • Can the same thing be made for the groups to show more or less to a page?
