Communities create news but it is always a good idea to mix with the outside world.  If you run a niche community, it is a good idea to stay on top of what is going on in the world related to your community.  One way to do this is to pull in relevan…

  • Hi JFarrow,

    I have a 2.0 that I had a java developed years ago for to make it responsive. The only problem is that we're image intensive, and nested replies start hiding part and then all of the images therein. Here's a discussion with a few examples:: 

    https://live.autographmagazine.com/forum/topics/signed-beatles-albu...

    Sometimes 90% of the image is hidden.

    We have to stay with nested comments and replies. Can the code be changed so that doesn't happen?

    I'm moving to 3.0 but want to keep the current site, at least until 3.0 is about as fast as my 2.0.

    Thanks,

    Steve

  • Edie is fine. I have noticed your name for years and didn't realize what a treasure you are. Thank you so much for the friend request too. I am going to be exploring your projects now and really excited. Keep spreading positivity and knowledge :)

  •  What a fantastic cover image! Whew!!! 

  • Hi thanks for the addition. You're giving me hope here. Great. I will call you this evening, so it's not the middle of the night for you. :-) 

  • Thanks for the add, Looking forward to working together!

  • Thank you for the friend's request, I'm looking forward to sharing with you here on the site :)

  • Have you had a chance to root for that method to list Groups?  Not bugging you about it, but one of our co-admins passed away and trying to easily list the groups he had created....

  • Kos suggested I ask you: Is there a way to get a list of the groups we have established on our site?  We have more than 250 groups and I want to put together a list of groups to help members find what may be interesting to them without having to step through page after page of groups.

  • Hi, JFarrow, first it's funny we are both Floridians! :)

    second, sorry to bother you but I heard good things about you and frankly I don't know what else to do and I would appreciate your input on my post. I'm so lost, if and when you have time could you possibly give some advice on what I might do or might have done that I should change? thanks in advance. https://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/urgent-can-somebody-help-me-p...

  • I feel like giving a gift, because I care today and every day I am there to you and to all, I am happy knowing you are a good friend to have and for me it is good to be loved. You matter :)
