How to Select Features for Your Ning Network

By Manny Hernandez

You can specify what features you want your Ning network to have. When you create your network on Ning, you can click the Next button on the Describe Your Social Network page, which takes you to the Add Features to Your Network page. This page lets you drag and drop all the features for your network’s main page into the places where you want them to appear.


The features available appear on the left side under the Features heading. You can drag them to the right, inside one of three boxes: the left one, the middle one, and the small one in the bottom right.

If you change your mind about the placement of a feature, you can drag it and drop it wherever you want it to go. Piece of cake! Do the same if you want to remove it: You can drag a feature and drop it into the box labeled Drag Here to Remove Feature.

Only the most popular features are listed when you first land on this page: Description, Activity, Members, Videos, Blog, Forum, Events, and Groups. If you want to see the entire list, click the View All Features link at the bottom of the Features list.

When you finish arranging your network’s features, click the Launch link, or you can click the Next button to customize your network’s appearance.
