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


1. On the front page, instead of going into the admin function to edit the boxes, could there possibly be a way to solve this by allowing front end editting?

2. Something needs to be addressed about the twitter widgets they don't work anymore, so is there a new way to bring a twitter search to ning itself?

3. Let members add a text box or other widgets to their profile by being able to edit their widgets on their profiles or groups.

4. Emojis, stickers or gifs, reactions.

5. Hashtags and @mentions for people speaking to one another in the newsfeed module.

6. Improve Photos for over all use, they slow down the networks. Possibly even in 2.0 they slowed down the network. Allow them to be uploaded in small thumbnail form. Choose also if they can be shown in a module in a slideshow or small thumbnail form.

7. Allow the ning chat with support chat to be moved to the upper parts of a page, sometimes they get in the way of editting or saving in the back end.

8. Add more rss feeds to the newsfeed module.

9. Add a camera chat option to ning.

10. Add Network Games to networks that members can play - could even charge for them like a module like ning light does/did.

11. When using the paywalls, I found out I couldn't do this. I wanted to allow free members to be able to create X number of groups for free but if they needed extra then I wanted to start a subscription for 5.00 per group. I found out that I couldn't do that, so if that was an option it would be good as well. Like say you join a site and You as a free member get three free groups, afterward every other group is 5.00 a group. But if you deleted a free group of the three, you could still make a free group of the three. However if you had a paid group also it would stay paid, even if you had 2 free groups.

Like say I want free members to be able to add 20 free songs, but other songs cost 5.00 a track to upload or for 10.00 or so they could upload X number of songs or tracks, same with videos, articles and so on.

12. With paywalls you could also sell products on your network, say like you have a tshirt store or a candle store and you sell home made candles for 5.00. You could list the products on store with the store module and members or visitors can buy from your website store. Add the ability to pay direct to your paypal, stripe etc and you would be in business. Pun intended.

13. More Themes. Ability to upload thems to ning from wordpress, or blogger, or tumblr or some other template store or site. I love themes and I know themes make or break you.

    • This looks like something they are working on for ning 4.0.

      It's flat and very responsive though.

      Personally, I love the html format of the design studio.

      But I would like to see ning versions of pinterest and or facebook and twitter.
