Group (Part 1)Your Ning Network
I’d like to give a little tour of Ning’s Group where you can:
- Enjoy photo sharing, discussions, and an event calendar all in the same place
- Customize the look
- Edit the profile questions
- Make it public or members only
And, as always, you can also dive right into the HTML/CSS and PHP to add features, change the layout, delete stuff, or just experiment. It’s totally up to you.
To start, we offer a version of this app called Group (yeah, I know, original). The point of this app is not to add your profile, photos, events, and discussions to a generic group website, but to Clone It and create your own Group on Ning social website builder.
Here’s the Group app in its generic form:
Now for the fun stuff.
I clone my own copy, Gina’s Sweet Group which takes me to the set up page where I can choose my colors, add an image to the header, and tell people on the homepage what my group is all about.
Next, I decide I want to make my group private and create my own profile questions, which I can do right here on the same page:
The end result? Well, one very spectacular Gina’s Sweet Group website, of course!
I would have called it Gina’s Sweetass Group but this is a family blog.
