Help with jQuery Mods and Hacks for your Ning Network!

[Last Updated: 7/3/2013]


(Ning has released Ning 3.0 and all new networks will be Ning 3.0 networks.  We have ported over some of our popular Ning 2 apps such as Smileys and Signatures and our Instant Messenger.  Other apps will be ported in the future.  Ning 3 does NOT have a Profile Textbox but we have a Profile Textbox for Ning 3 already sold, installed, and working on several Ning 3 sites.  We also have a Directory app which allows NCs to add custom fields to a Forum instance, with Searchable entries.  Ask TJ for more info!)

Welcome to jQueryHelp!  Thanks for joining us here.  I've been a programmer for many years and I'm able to do some interesting mods to Ning networks using javascript and jQuery code, which Ning allows Network Creators to place in their Custom Code box.


Some of the smaller and easier to create mods are provided here in the Forums.  But we have some more comprehensive apps too.  The Smiley app is free and lets members use smileys/emoticons in comments and replies, as you can see if you look around here.  In some cases, people have reported problems and I fix them as I have time.  Version 6 for the New Ning Text Editor seems to be working really well, no problems reported in years!


The I-Ming app is one of our bigger apps.  It is an IM, shows who is currently online, shows "Last Active Here" date and time on profile pages, and shows "Recently Active Members in the last 3 days" on the Main page.  It was Donation and Ad supported.  The code is very simple but it requires me to "Turn ON' the app on those networks that I decided to allow to test it.  For years, I had turned on most people who asked for it on their networks.  It was on over 50 networks and is used by tens of thousands of members.  But now, the testing is Done.  If you want it on your network, you can donate $100 and I'll get it on your network.  You'll also need to pay a $10 a month server rental fee - this app will be on a server dedicated just to running it.  (New Pricing is $100 per app, and $30 for 6 months server fee or $50 for one year server fee.)


The Ning Stat Bar you see at the bottom of the Main page is Donation and Ad supported.  It shows how many members, groups, photos, etc are on a network. (NOT shown on this site anymore, but I can Demo it for you, just ask!)


We have a Signature Text app which lets members create a Signature which shows at the bottom of any comment or reply they leave.  We are working on adding the ability to have images in Signatures.


We have a basic chat room that works on cell phones.  Ning's chat apparently does not work from some call phones, or so I've been told.  I don't use Ning's chat so I can't really say.  The chat room is available for $100 donation and $10 a month server rental fee. (See New Pricing above) It lets you use smileys and has the ability to select a font, font size and font color.


Here are some links to read about these apps and others:

is bridge posible for joomla-ning?
I was working on that last year, and I found a way to do it. But it was against Ning's Terms of Service so I never actually used the code I wrote. Ning is supposed to release a new API "soon" and that should let programmers do bridges like that. But it will only be for Ning Pro networks who are paying $50 a month. I just have a Plus network so I don't know if I'll be working anymore on this. Check the Creators Forum every once in a while. If someone figures out how to do this, they will probably write about it there: http://creators.ning.com/

Ayla, James TJ , habla aqui de las diferentes aplicaciones que hay en este sitio en JavaScript y Jquery y que están utilizando en otras redes, el más popular es Smileys , yo lo utilizo en mi red y funciona bastante bien por ahora. Luego hay otras como por ejemplo los mensajes instantáneos con las personas que están online, si te fijas en la parte superior veras tu icono y si hay otros en linea los veras también, haciendo clic alli,puedes enviar un mensaje a otro miembro que esta en linea en ese cuadro , tipo Facebook. Hay muchas utilidades que están en los link y otras que aún no están disponibles pero que James TJ está probandolas aquí. También dice que está pagando otro servidor extra para que los guiones funcionen en otras redes, eso gracias a las donaciones...La ejecucion de los script , hace que los recursos corran rapido en los servidores y se saturen. También el brinda servicios personalisados pagando una suma fijada por el según los servicios...Espero esto te aclare algo el tema, si tienes una duda especifica, envíala por privado,dejo esto aquí por si entra algun usuario de habla hispana... :-H

Hello New Members!

Been a while since I updated things here.  We have new apps that allow Members to Search for other Members by entering a ZIP CODE and a Distance in Miles.  The app shows all Members within that DIstance from that Zip Code.  We also have an app that lets you ADD BLOG TAGS to existing blogs, for a standardized list of Tags that you can create.  The app reads your existing blogs and adds in the tags that apply to each blog, from your standard list.

We do many kinds of custom apps, so if you have an idea for your network, message me and we'll see what we can do!  I'm usually pretty busy with clients, but I may be able to work with you so message me and we'll talk!

Best wishes to all members, new and old!


P.S.  COME SAY HELLO in the Chat Room!  http://jqueryhelp.ning.com/page/jqueryhelp-chat
