"Rev" Up Your Site For The Holidays

We've had these talks in years past and they kinda died off with Ning sale (s) but now we finally have a NEW owner who is improving and investing so I thought maybe it was worthwhile to have an updated discussion on how we decorate our sites for the December holiday.  Call it Christmas, or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, or Festivus but get your members involved!  

You can change your background image, add some snow, holiday lights, a GIF or image, spruce up or add a slider, change your header image, add holiday music or video.  How about a contest?

Ning used to offer a site where we could create our own gift cards to send to members.  Kyryl is there any way this could be opened again???  http://holiday.ning.com/

Some past discussions are shown below and I'm sure there are more, although I'm uncertain if all the links are functional.  Let's hear your ideas!

  • I'd still like to find out how to add these "smashable" lights on my 3.0.  Wish I knew javascript!  *lol* http://www.schillmania.com/projects/snowstorm/lights/index.html?siz...

  • Hi Kos,

    It took some time to find the password to the network you have mentioned, it was hidden deep in the documentation, but unfortunately, there was no information regarding the network itself. So I have decided to check what do we have there, unfortunately, the site was empty :-( I guess all the codes and info from there has been removed long time ago and they cannot be restored as I haven't found any sign of "life".

    Best wishes,

    Ning Team.

    • Aw crud.  Well, it was years ago so I guess when they began work on 3.0, they left it in the dust.  We'll survive.

      There are any number of ecard websites out there, much less photo editor sites like Pixlr, Adobe, Photobucket, etc. that Creators can utilize to create their own card and send to their members.

      Thank you for looking into it.
