How to Manage Tabs on Your Ning Network

Most of the time, the order in which the tabs appear in your Ning network's navigation bar works just fine (the thinking heads at Ning have tried to make sure the default order fits most needs). But you can shift the order of the links in your network’s navigation bar:

1

Click the Manage link on the navigation bar.

The Manage page appears.

2

Click the Tab Manager option below the Your Network heading.

The Tab Manager page opens.

3

Click the tab you want to move in the list on the left side of the page, drag it to the new location, and drop it.

You can rearrange tabs into any order you want.

4

If you want to remove a tab from the list, simply click the X to the right of the tab.

You can't remove the Main, Invite, My Page, and Manage tabs.

5

If you want to add a new tab that links to a page on the network, click the Add New Tab link at the top left of the Tab Manager page.

This adds a new tab (coincidentally labeled New Tab) right above the Manage tab.

6

Fill in information for your new tab, on the right side of the page.

Enter a name in the Tab Name text box, specify the URL for the page, and select other appropriate options for your new tab.

7

(Optional) Adjust the colors of the subtab menu.

Under the Sub-Tab Menu Colors heading on the Tab Manager page, you can change Text Color (the color of the link), Text Color on Hover (the color the link appears in when someone hovers his mouse on it), Background Color (the color behind the link), and Background Color on Hover (the color behind the link when someone hovers her mouse on it).

8

Click the Save Tab Settings button, and you’re done!

Your new tab appears on your network's navigation bar, like the Dummies.com tab in this figure.
