My role is NC of a Ning 2 and a Ning 3 site, and Admin on many Ning sites that I have worked on. I am a Software Developer, programming in vb.net asp.net javascript jQuery. My Ning Network: http://jQueryHelp.ning.com

Please test out any code I offer here carefully! Always make a copy of your Custom Code box contents before changing anything! Use any code or any other suggestions I may offer here at your own risk!


Tell us a bit about your network (example: Creators is a community of Ning Network Creators who gather together to collaborate, troubleshoot, and share tips and tricks)

For over 8 years now, I have been using various programming techniques to add Features to Ning sites, for free and for a fee. I have shared many tips and tricks for free on my Ning site, jQueryHelp.ning.com. If you have a need that Ning is not meeting, and a budget to purchase custom solutions, please contact my team at TJ@BKServ.com. Thanks and best wishes!

I just discovered the same thing myself.  An additional problem will occur when the javascript code, which can indeed be accessed from a js file uploaded to Ning if one uses https, accesses server side files that use http.  That's the is…"

"Hey Dan,
There is a way to count page views but it requires an external server to store the count data. An app like that would cost a few hundred dollars. 
I wonder if Google Analytics has a widget for page views? I don't think they do, but there mi…"

HELP! ning 3.0 network data import using ning API
"Hi Giovanni,
As far as I know, the API for the Ning 3 platform is still in Beta testing, as it has been since 2013. It was on the Roadmap to be released for many years but it didn't happen.
However, you should still be able to use it, in a limited f…"

It's nice to see that progress will be made in 2017. I know many NCs will be happy to have features provided for their networks by Ning, for free, that they have had to hire me and others to implement.
You mentioned Features that NC…"

  • Hi, good night, I would like to know if you would have a network ning 2.0 available
    for sale, I'm really looking forward to buying a 2.0 network.
  • It just took me a half hour to make a not-very-good cover photo for my profile page! 

    That is why I am a Programmer and not a designer!

  • Thanks TJ :)

  • TJ ...Hope all is well. I can't remember the test site you had where I was a member. Can you help? I'll bet it's really nice now unless you closed it down.

    Thanks,

    Edie

  • Hey TJ

    Been trying to drop you a mail, but you seem to be bouncing, got any other address I can get you on?

  • 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 :)
  • Have a great week TJ! :)
  • 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.
  • HUGE thanks again, TJ, for your help on the "full view" function for photos ... an essential for my network of photographers obviously.

    another essential to any good network is notifications ... sadly, NING seems to have missed the mark again ... when you have a chance, do you have any suggestions on this one?

    i've spent FIVE days building this network ... but i might just have to cut my losses and continue with a Groupsite one.  :(
