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

 

I know you want icons, just like what we see in Facebook and Google+.

 

Now you get the TIPS!!

 

This tips is for everyone who put the activity feed in the main column. But if you are using NING Pro and have all functions/modules in your site. Maybe there is not enough space for you to add all icons with all the share links if your page is 3 columns layout. I'll have another tips that use ICON ONLY for the share links. You'll find that tips in jensocial.

 

You have chooses to add icons. Using NING's icons or yours.

Let's talk about add NING's icons first. Just add the following CSS in Advanced CSS:

 

/* quick add link icons */

.quickadd-options-links a {

padding-left: 20px;

background-repeat: no-repeat;

background-image: url('https://static.ning.com/socialnetworkmain/widgets/index/gfx/icons/xg_sprite-FF3333.png');

_background-image: url('https://static.ning.com/socialnetworkmain/widgets/index/gfx/icons/ie6/xg_sprite-FF3333.png');

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="post"] {

   background-position: left -3251px;

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="discussion"] {

   background-position: left -3287px;

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="event"] {

   background-position: left -3321px;

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="photo"] {

   background-position: left -3463px;

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="video"] {

   background-position: left -3497px;

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="music"] {

   background-position: left -3394px;

}

 

The codes that include the background image files should be one line non-break. You can simply download this share_link_icon.css and copy paste. Same CSS code as above.

If you want to change the color of icons, just change background image file name. For example, 

xg_sprite-3366FF.png

xg_sprite-0000FF.png

xg_sprite-FF3333.png

 

for xg_sprite-3366FF.png , the color is #3366FF. Use Capital.

I'm not sure how many colors NING provide. Change the hex color numbers feels like a lucky draw. :P

 

If you want use your own icons, add these CSS in Advanced CSS:

 

/* quick add link customize icons*/

.quickadd-options-links a {

padding-left: 20px;

background-repeat: no-repeat;

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="post"] {

   background-image: url('your-post-icon.png');

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="discussion"] {

   background-image: url('your-post-icon.png');

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="event"] {

   background-image: url('your-discussion-icon.png');

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="photo"] {

   background-image: url('your-photo-icon.png');

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="video"] {

   background-image: url('your-video-icon.png');

}

.quickadd-options-links a[data-value="music"] {

   background-image: url('your-music-icon.png');

}

 

If you create your own icon set, please kindly share with us. Thank you.

  • That looks great, Alex! 

  • thanks

     

  • you should be working on Ning

    • LOL, I wish. :P

  • Tried your CSS code but it didn't work on our network???

    • The codes that include the image files should be one line non-break. Better to copy the codes form share_link_icon.css

      • Yes I did.. but maybe it is because we have a NING Pro account?
        "if you are using NING Pro and have all functions/modules in your site. Maybe there is not enough space for you to add all icons with all the share links if your page is 3 columns layout." ??
        • If your using NING Pro, the links bar with icons are too long but still display. Maybe you lost " . ; : }... something like that. Check it out!!

          • no lost of code... but icons do not show. Yes using NING Pro in centre column.

  • Bravo, Alex! you just earned a Carlton Dance Award! This is alex's first CDA!
