"i agree on the use of tabs for the comments... on Creators I think it would be best if Friends and Groups were in tabs and Comments at the top of the sidebar above them...right under cover photo right side"

  • By amy chamce do you have code for 3.0 scroll bar for blogs and forum, and if possible black or gray color??? Thanks

  • 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.

  • 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 :)
  • Thank you for still being my friend here and for being a great person to have around, I appreciate and welcome you for all you are and so much more. Happy latest holiday, I'll keep you in my thoughts.
  • Happy thanks giving to you my friend. I hope all is well. I am thinking of you. Blessings, Elshara.
  • Hello,

    My name is Stu Carroll and I am the social media coordinator for a veteran’s charity foundation.  We would like a redesign of our Ning site and we are looking for a Ning creator to undertake that project.

    We have three major requirements.

    1. Streamline the website. It is currently busy and we would like to simplify the interface. We want to make it easy to view profiled members, highlighted achievements, links, and new blog posts entries.
    2. We need a new landing page. Currently, potential members reach the login and are turned off. We need something that teases what’s inside, protects the identities of current members, and offers an easy way to sign in or sign up.
    3. I need someone to set up Google Analytics so we can track usage. I am unable to complete the setup process and I am stumped as to why.

    We need an estimate in both time and cost.


    Stu Carroll
