How to Choose a Theme for Your Ning Network

By Manny Hernandez

You can run your network on Ning without being a very accomplished designer — and Ning’s themes let you make it look like a million dollars! The folks at Ning have taken good care of that and offer you more than 50 great-looking templates (they call them themes) that you can use with minimal effort:

1When creating your network, click the Next button on the Add Features to Your Network page.

The Customize Appearance page appears.

2Doing this is as simple as scrolling by using the scroll bar on the right until you see a theme you like, and then simply click the theme.

You’ve just assigned that theme to your network.

3Tweak the theme to make it look the way you want it to.

Under the heading Now, Make It Uniquely Yours, you can adjust the theme settings to a degree that serves almost all your customization needs.

4When you finish choosing a theme and customizing your network’s appearance, click the Launch button.

After you click on the Launch button, y your network’s main page appears. Your network is up and running!
