Tonight’s release is live!

Rate this post

In the spirit of making features easier to use and rapidly fixing long-standing idiosyncrasies, we’ve rolled out various improvements to your Ning Network with tonight’s release. As we talked about here and here, this release includes an update to the default My Page layout and a new option for exporting the attendees of your event.

Here’s some more good stuff packaged into tonight’s release:

  • Your RSS feed for blog posts will now display the published date instead of the created date. This means the date of the post on your Ning Network will match up with the RSS feed.
  • Your RSS feed for photos will now display the photos themselves, rather than linking to them.

Let us know if you have any questions!

    Hi Monika,

    Is it possible you’ve accidentally blocked images on your Firefox browser? If so, google “unblock images Firefox” and follow along with the instructions for your operating system.

    That should do the trick!

    Hey! Thats awesome, just wondering if you guys are planning to put the date of events in the events rss feed? Several sites would like to import our events rss feed but find it useless without a date in the title.. digg does this well with their rss feed.. it could be like [Nov 3] Mikes Party

    Everything fixed on my site. Thanks.
    However, the defaults for posting blog entries have changed. JFI.

    Regards, Luzi

    Wasn’t this release going to restore the members page back to the grid layout?

    It hasn’t changed on my networks!

      Hey Jeff,

      This only affects the default profile page layout. That might be why it doesn’t seem like it’s changed. Will you confirm that piece of information for us?

    Trouble with mailbox.
    Trouble with layout design.
    Trouble with player.

    …in short terms.

    we are having trouble with creating groups, specifically uploading a picture. That box is gone and yesterday it still worked. What should we do?

  10. Emma Potts

    I’m seeing the same issues as eCoronado reports above. The functionality to format text or add images/files is no longer visible when trying to post new blogs.

    I have the same problem as Michelle: Um, in my site I’m having troubles, my administrators can’t do anything, messages can’t be responded to and other things that just don’t work are showing up. By Michelle on Oct 30, 2009

    Cannot approve or decline new members. Cannot contact them via SEND Message

    Hi Michelle,

    Can you give some specific examples of what isn’t working (w/ links)? What isn’t showing up? If if you can give some specific examples here, we can follow up!

    I have received two separate reports of issues from members since the time of the release. I just filed them in ticket #00098410.

    Hi eCoronado,

    I just tested this out on my own netwoek and it looks like blogs and events can be italicized at as expected. If this is different than what you see on your own Ning Network, shoot us a note in the Ning Help Center and we can take a look!


  15. Michelle

    Um, in my site I’m having troubles, my administrators can’t do anything, messages can’t be responded to and other things that just don’t work are showing up. I’m thinking it’s because there is work still going on, could you perhaps let me know?

    Great update! Any idea when FEATURED content (photos) will get their own RSS feed? Imagine screensavers around the world pulling the very best content to display and link to our sites!

    Looks like all the options to bold, italicize, underline, etc. are now gone on the blog and events area??
