Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.

Our site is transistioning from 2.0 to 3.0 and I've noticed that there doesn't appear to be a sent message folder for members, only an inbox.

Is there something we need to turn on or is this something ning forgot to include inversion 3.0 (or somrthing they're working on)?

    • Bizz,

      I'm assuming when you say "email" we are talking about the same thing. Since I'm not a member of any other ning website I can't go look at anything other than our new 3.0 site ( or our old 2.0 site ( When I'm logged in to the 3.0 site at the top of the page there is a bar with a search box and icons for friend's requests, messages, invite contacts, My Name, and a sign out link
      8280286501?profile=RESIZE_930xWhen I click on the envelope icon all I get is an option to read messages or go to my inbox. Once in the inbox I only have options to deal with inbox messages, no clickable link/icon to see a sent folder.

      In the old 2.0 site if I go to my messages then I see a header with clickable links like in your screen shot.

      • If there are no messages sent then it will not show up, try sending a message to yourself and then it should show up. It works the same much like categories, if nothing has been added to a category then the link for it does not show as it's empty.

        • I've sent a number of messages to my fellow admin/site creator. I know he received them because he replied (also since the database was migrated from th 2.0 site I would think my sent messages from there should appear on the new 3.0 site).


          • No it wouldn't it have to be messaged sent on 3.0 if you're looking for the messages from 2.0 to show up in the sent box on 3.0 that's not going to happen

              • I've sent and received a few messages to the other admin/creator on the 3.0 website and the sent and archive options are not appearing.

                This is what I see:


                • Steve it is there, it's just you can just about see it as the links against your background are quite dark

                  8287092886?profile=RESIZE_930xHere is a little css to help you out so you can just change the colours for that rather than change your whole site links. Just change the colour for what you want in the part where it says colour:

                  The css just goes in your design studio custom css

                  The first line sets the colour for the links themselves

                  The second line set the colour for when hover and the active link

                  .page-profiles-message .subnav li a { color: blue }
                  .page-profiles-message .subnav li a:hover, .page-profiles-message .subnav li.subnav-current a{ color:orange}

                  • Thanks!!


                    • No worries Steve  :-)
