This weekend saw our eager-beaver engineering and operations teams roll out another release of the Ning Playground. The front-end differences are fairly small this time, but there are quite a few of them: for example, the Ningbar’s easier to get around with “Back” button support and a dedicated user search on the “People” panel.
Since 2002, Amy’s Robot has been essential reading for those in the know. The blog provides a compelling stream of news, celebrity gossip and political opinion, addictively flavored with their own brand of wit and snark. They’ve now expanded their efforts into a number of single-topic blogs such as ScaryNY, Bad Love and The Ledger.
On September 30th, the Farm Aid musical charity celebrates its 21st year of raising support and awareness for family farms with another spectacular concert. The booking office opens this Saturday; if you’re thinking of going you’d better not hang around, as those tickets sure won’t.
You’ve probably already looked at the Message Center in your user panel – that’s the one labeled with your username and icon. It’s basically a mailbox, and we figure that you already know how to use one of those.
As the Ning train keeps rolling, we’re proud to introduce our collaboration with FX Networks on the new season of Morgan Spurlock’s 30 Days.
Another feature of the Ningbar is App Search. Every Ning App gets a powerful built-in search engine for free. The search box lives at the top of the screen. Enter some text, and it’ll search through the content of the current App, as well as across all Ning Apps in one go – 15,000 Apps and rising. All of the public content is searchable from the start and the private content stays private.
So you’re looking at our whizzy new Ningbar and the new friends list features and all the other fun stuff, and you’re thinking, “Well, that’s all very lovely, but how’s this thing going to help me create and run my Apps? And more importantly, what if I want it to just go away?”
