New Feature for Ning Plus & Pro: Dedicated Test Networks

Today, we’re excited to launch our new Test Network feature, which provides a sandbox environment for Ning Plus and Pro members to try out changes before making them live on their network.

In the past, Network Creators would often create separate networks to try out new themes, test out Ning Apps, or see how a particular piece of code would work before making it live. With the launch of this feature, NCs with Ning Plus and Ning Pro networks can now conveniently create a test network with the same settings as their live Ning Network.

The New File Manager: Upload Files and Make a Splash with a Custom Main Page

Today, we’re launching a very exciting new feature that I know a lot of Network Creators are going to be thrilled with: a File Manager. This will enable you to both manage files on your Ning Network and customize your members’ experience. Available for Ning Pro accounts, it will allow you to — among other things — create an impressive “splash” page your members will see before visiting your network.
I wanted to spend a few minutes today letting you know how you can get started with the File Manager, as well as give you some examples of how you might want to use this new feature. If you’re a Pro user, you’ll find the File Manager on your My Network page. Simply select Content and choose the File Manager from your left-hand navigation area.

Edit Member Content [Now Live]

We are happy to announce a new feature that allows you to make corrections and other copy editing changes to member content. This has been a huge ask from many Network Creators; to effectively manage your Ning Network, you need the ability to make copy edits and corrections to content your members create. Making such changes has been a very tedious process in the past. Your only options were to either contact and ask your member to edit the content (potentially a time consuming process) or delete the content (too strict in most cases).

Language Filter Live

The Language Filter is now live! This feature enables you to filter out offensive or otherwise prohibited words from content on your Ning Network. Many of you have requested this feature to help you more efficiently moderate your networks, as well as increase the value of your network traffic to advertisers.

The Language Filter is an opt-in feature available on Ning Pro. The feature comes with a default set of offensive words to filter, but the set of filtered words is customizable and completely controlled by you, the Network Creator.
