Introduction to Audio

The Audio feature is a wonderful way to enrich your network. You can create and share music files, audio lessons, and podcasts. You can also create playlists and organize your content on the Ning Network just the way you want. This feature can become the center of attraction in your community, and can help make your network truly unique.

The Audio feature for the Ning 3.0 platform is a successor of the similar feature on the Ning 2.0. It took the best of its predecessor, so it can offer users the improved user-friendly functionality that makes working with the feature easier and more effective.

Now, network creators can not only add tracks, but also create and edit playlists. We have also changed the design of the page and made it more eye pleasing.

How to set it up?

You can easily set up our Audio feature on your network admin panel.

Simply add a new page and choose Music in the pop-down list of the page type.

You can also choose who can edit and see this page. Click Save to save all the changes.

Now, you can find the Music page on your network Menu panel.

In the settings on the admin panel, you can change the name of the Audio section (e.g. Music, Track etc.)

As a network creator, you can limit access to this feature and apply paid access to the audio content.*
