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

As you may or may not be aware the cover photos for the groups headers are cropped to a height of 160px so here is a bit of code to remove the crop so you can have a bigger sized picture, also some css which helps make them responsive.

First we add some code to our Social Site Builder > Custom Code > End Of Page to remove the crop

<script>
// Remove group header crop
x$(document).ready(function() {
x$('.groupHeader.groupHeader-coverPhoto').each(function() {
var removegroupHeaderCrop = x$(this).css('background-image');
x$(this).css('background-image', removegroupHeaderCrop.replace(/\&height=\d+\&crop=\d+\%\d+\A\d+/, ''));
});
});
</script>

Next we add some css to our design studio custom css, the Padding Bottom of 25% is what controls the height so you can adjust that to smaller or bigger depending on how big you want them

.groupHeader-coverPhoto {
padding-bottom: 25%!important;
height: 0!important;
position:relative
}

Extra tip

If you only want to change a particular group you can do so just by adding the page name at the start, so for instance my groups are called Groups and the page I want to change is Demo so the could would look like this and the part in bold is the part added

.page-groups-demo .groupHeader-coverPhoto {
padding-bottom: 25%!important;
height: 0!important;
position:relative
}

 

Hope you find it useful

  • thank you so much !!!!!!!! amazing is perfect you are a genius

  • All I can find is adding is a group image.  Where is it you can add a group cover?  Is ti the huge white space under the group image?

    • Hi Cindy,

      Please, make sure that this checkbox is enabled for the Group Hub in your Social Site Manager - Site & Pages
      Screenshot - https://take.ms/fv7I0

      Then, you'd be able to add a cover photo to your group while editing the group - https://take.ms/DtVgG

      Hope this helps!

      Kind regards,
      The Ning Team

      • Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  I knew that dead space at the top was for something.  I just could not figure out for what.  Now I can have pretty covers on my groups!
