As we previously blogged and described in the plan details, your Ning Network now has a custom network ID. Based on input from our Network Creators, we are planning to end cross-network Ning authentication via a Ning ID very soon. This is part of our broader plan to give you more control over your Ning Network design and member experience. As a first step, today we dropped “Ning ID” from the sign-up experience on your Ning Network. This means that when members join, they won’t see the “We use a Ning ID for authentication” text. This won’t impact how your current members sign-in to your Ning Network. Their sign-in email address and password will remain the same.

One impact of this change is that only Network Creators are now able to sign-in to www.Ning.com. If your members or Administrators try to sign-in to this page, they will be asked to create a new account. You may want to instruct your members and Administrators to always sign-in directly to your Ning Network.
