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

Hi All,

I'm not sure if this is something that has already been addressed here before or if this is something that you can already do on Ning and I just haven't figured it out, but I want to know is there a plan for Ning to start allowing users to upload pictures and video content in the activity feed. I know that one work-around is to have my members post discussions so they can upload pictures, but when it comes to quick videos they have to embed, which most of them probably aren't tech savvy enough to even do. Also, being able to allow my members to have a live video feature would be nice too.I don't know how feasable that is, but please let me know if there's anything in the works, or something that I can do now. Thanks

  • Hello!

    Unfortunately, so far it is not possible to upload media files directly to the Activity Feed, but I will add your suggestion to the similar feedbacks from another Network Creators and our Product Team will consider adding it to the platform. 

    It is possible to embed a 3rd party live stream to the platform, but we do not have functionality that would allow you to stream directly from NING. 

    Bets regards,

    The NING Team

  • Hi there AJ Simmons! I was told ning is getting rid of its old activity feed and its making a new one due to the heavy bugs on the old activity feed. When the new activity feed is released or what will will the new activity feed look like or have on it, etc Unfortunally I am not sure and I wouldn't be able to answer those questions. But If you want to add buttons to the status update bar there is a way you can with custom coding. Unfortunally With these codes for the buttons that will be on your status message bar you can NOT upload a picture or a video directly but when you click on the buttons that is on your status update bar for example when you click on the upload picture button on your status update bar it will send your users to the picture page where they can click on the upload picture button. Here is the forum where I got the code. Please click here

    Here is the code I use for my website status update bar buttons below: If the buttons are not working, need to add another button, or change the design of the button with a image please let me know and I will be more than gladly to help you! Go to social site manager then click on custom code and then add it to the end of the page code. Hope this helps! Please let me know how it goes and if there is anything else I can do for you! :) 

    <script>
    if (typeof(x$) != 'undefined') {x$(".status-container").append('<div align="center" style="margin-top:15px;"><a class="button button-primary" href="/photos" target="_blank" title="Add Photo">Add Photo</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a class="button button-primary" href="video" target="_blank" title="Add Video">Add Video</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a class="button button-primary" href="events" target="_blank" title="Add Event">Add Event</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a class="button button-primary" href="discuss" target="_blank" title="Add Group">Add Group</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a class="button button-primary" href="polls" target="_blank" title="Add Poll">Add Poll</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;</div>');
    }

    So I started to let a few people join my site and I asked them to post content. I watched their process and realised most people want to begin blogs,…
