Hi there :)

NING 3.0 has still any problem, however we knew NING 3.0 is totaly POWERFUL more than NING 2.0.

As you know, Individual CSS-MarkUp is gone in NING 3.0. It means, You can not add any icon on each menu-tab.

Do you know you can use "<i>"tag in Tab-title?
So, You can add the icon using <i> tag :D

See Example: http://skf-japan.ning.com*I'm sorry. This is Japanese Site.

[How to do that?]

1: Site&Page

At first, You need add to <i>tag in your tab-title.
If the tab-title name is "TOP", You can add <i> tag with class name. "<i class="h"></i>TOP ".

2:Add CSS code!!
Add CSS code like this,
-----------------------
.h{
    background: url("https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/3240346?profile=original") ;
    display: block;
    float: left;
    height: 16px;
    margin-right: 3px;
    margin-top: 5px;
    width: 16px;
}
-----------------------

You can see "home-icon" in your menu-tab :D

[Example]

This is my code of adding icons...

Icon file: https://api.ning.com/files/kY9puDXSBJbqKFgQOZWGjPvTxdeEQeTAEvCzMW9ZoQ9SAXNuHrnwj4AVGNn0Tre0t8fS*RiFBsxackGCfw8X83srDvAiYaHN/menuicon.png

  • <i class="h"></i> => Home icon
  • <i class="j"></i> => Question icon
  • <i class="s"></i> => World icon
  • <i class="t"></i> => Calender icon
  • <i class="m"></i> => Video icon
  • <i class="k"></i> => Star icon
  • <i class="g"></i> => Direction icon

---CSS Code----------------------------

.h,.j,.s,.t,.m,.k,.g{
    background: url("https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/3240346?profile=original") ;
    display: block;
    float: left;
    height: 16px;
    margin-right: 3px;
    margin-top: 5px;
    width: 16px;
}
.j{
background-position:0 -16px;
}
.s{
background-position:0 -32px;
}
.t{
background-position:0 -48px;
}
.m{
background-position:0 -64px;
}
.k{
background-position:0 -80px;
}
.g{
background-position:0 -96px;
}

    What on Earth made you think to try a tag in a title? How cool. I would have never in a million years tested something like this. Nice job. =) I hope it's not a quirk, and that it continues to work. Keep us posted.

    • Hi, Jen :)

      Thanks a lot!!! but, be careful!!
      Tab-title has the limit of type digit. so, you can not choose tab-title so longer.
      I will keep to post NING 3.0 TIPs :D

      good luck,
      SHO
