  • Aloha Steve! Govloop is an awesome site. I see on your About here that whenever you filled it out you were at 21k members and now at 150k. That's amazing. Is Govloop still a Ning network or are you now using something else?

  • Hi Steve,

    I am trying to create an area on my ning site called "topics" (similar to the topics section on govloop).  I do not want to use pages or notes as they both have the "view all.." option, and also notes does not support java.

    Would you mind telling me how you created your topics area?  I noticed that the topics url is http://topics.govloop.com/....  Is this a separate website or part of the ning site?  Thanks!

  • Congrats!!
  • Thanks Steve! Hope it's working well for you guys at GovLoop.
