TIP: Resize Your Videos And Make then responsive. Applies to Video Pages And Groups Video Pages. Also Social Channels
"Yes it will only work with youtube etc and not uploaded videos. The reason is that uploaded videos are resampled down by Ning to a certain size so when you try to make them bigger they loose quality."

"Not this code as all the class names and layout of N3 are different than 2, it could probably be re-written to fit 2. I don't own a 2 anymore so not wrote it for 2 as not able to test it."

Videos from youtube, vimeo our social channels etc DO NOT take up room on our storage as they are streaming services from somewhere else as the videos are hosted there. These are not downsized and the videos can be…"

Some suggestions
"Yes, but if you pay $20 a month for videos and extra things and then Videos don't work like other sites you get a little discouraged.

  • Thanks J! Seems there's no way to reply to your comment on my wall? Or have I forgotten how?
  • How do you put that icon (lightening bolt) at the beginning of the title of your emails?
  • I am looking to do some updates to my site, and I would like to engage someone for that task. Please contact me at your soonest for a call or zoom session. 571-244-1902
  • 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

  • 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....
