Live now! New features for your Network Leaderboards

Rate this post

It’s been a little over a week since we launched Leaderboards for your Ning Networks. Since then, we’ve been busy working on several new features to make your Network Leaderboards even more powerful. Many of these come straight out of the requests you made on the Ning Creators Network — Thanks for your feedback!

Here’s a quick-and-dirty rundown of everything that’s going out today:

  • Every Leaderboard page now has a Text Box — this is perfect for adding more context, like explaining the rules for a contest you’re running.
  • 2 new display options for your Leaderboards: You can hide the Network Creator and Admins, and you can hide members and content you’ve already featured. Up to you whether to hide these, or leave them as is.
  • You can grab an RSS feed for every Leaderboard page. Great for adding them to another site, or for creating a custom widget.
  • We introduced a drag-n-drop interface for the Leaderboards landing page, giving you more control over the layout.
  • Group discussions are now counted in the Top Discussions Leaderboard.
  • Share links now appear at the bottom of every Leaderboard Page.
  • We made some optimizations to improve how members and content appear. Specifically, inactive members shouldn’t show up and new members and content shouldn’t spike as rapidly.
  • We went ahead and made “popularity” sorts consistent with your Leaderboards across different features.

And that’s it! Hope these improvements help make Leaderboards an even more compelling part of your network’s social experience.

    I have submitted a help ticket and posted on the Network Creators Council Forum that our Leaderboard settings are not working properly on my network but have yet to get a response from Ning.

    This is a great feature that I would like to use but the Network Creator (me) and Admins are still showing up in the leaderboards so I am not able to use this feature. Can you please advise or provide assistance, thank you.

    Hi there! I love that you can now choose to NOT include your admins and network creators on the leaderboards. But I can’t figure out how to make this adjustment. Where do I find this setting? Thanks!

    Good Day Admin. I need an advice to how and where I can pay for my network. I don’t have a credit card active right now but have an ATM Debit Card with a MasterCard logo on it. I did pay with this card online but does’nt accept it. Any idea or suggestion where and how to pay? I am presently in the Philippines right now.

    So what actually is a “Top Member”.? The help system doesn’t define it in the discussion on leaderboards.

    I noticed during the announcement of Ning upgrades to pay there was something about text box in header features for pro users.

    Any updates on this?

    I want to get my google ads into the header fast.

    I don’t see how to remove myself (Network Creator) from the leaderboard results. Can someone explain how to do that? I am using Safari on a Mac, if that makes a difference. Thanks!

    I need to know if there’s a way I can allow members from my site to add music to their page that way artists who join my page can share their songs with their fans. Please advise.

    Hi! On 12 August I wrote to you, but not yet received a reply. Please do not delete off my page!
    I pay only by bank transfer. Please send me your bank account, where to send the money.
    Thank you!

    I definitely plan on using this to start our first contest.
    Would be good though if the group creator didn’t show up on the leaderboards, because as a beginning community the creator is very active and appears as #1.

  13. Jason

    Love the Leaderboards. Any way to include “Top Groups”? We run a website that promotes animal rescue groups and it would be a neat way to encourage competition among groups to become active!

    We are still waiting to be contacted on how to make payment for this account. The onetwentyone site was established in remembrance of our son Jeremy Earnshaw who was washed out to sea in 2008. The account was established by the YWAM base in Townsville, Australia but is taken care of by the YWAM Newcastle base. YWAM Newcastle established this site for my wife and I and we would not want to loose the content. Can someone please contact us to get this back on track…and we will make the necessary option payment. We have been travelling all summer and did not notice the notice. Darryl and Ruth Earnshaw

    this is really what we need: text boxes on other pages besides the home page. I’d be happy to see additional text box on groups page, members page, forums page and more 🙂

    thank you

    Thank you for this finetunning Nick, and thank you bringing alot of the feedback request into this.

    A detail like the ability to remove NC’s and Admin’s from the Top content, was one of my specific wishes, there might have been some other with this request, but anyway… it really reflects how you guys work around stuff, and get into the details to deliver the best features.

    Thumbs Up! :0)
