I am starting this thread so that anyone having problems with how this new Ning 3 platform works can come here and ask questions, although I have to tell you right now, I most certainly do not have all the answers, but I will try my best.
I will start off by listing some things that I have already found out about how this site works as opposed to our familiar old friend Ning 2:
1. There is no reply button on the comment wall so when replying to a comment you need to click on the persons name or profile picture who sent you the comment, that will take you to their page where you can add a comment to their comment wall. (Ning are working on fixing this).
2. The groups have been migrated over from the other platform and are still in a state of upheavel, I am slowly working my way through them and organising them so that they appear more pleasing to the eye and are easier to navigate so please have patience, I imagine it wil take some time yet.
3. There is no way, yet, for our members to fully customise their pages, although the header picture can be changed, I don't think there ever will be as much free reign given to members as they had before because it caused problems with how the site could be viewed on different devices, so there has to be more uniformity to prevent bugs and crashes happening.
4. In order for members to get notifications and updates on groups, forum discussions etc they must click on the follow button which can be found at the bottom of discussions etc, In the groups when you are a member you will see an options tab, if you click on this you will get a drop down menu where you can click on mesage settings and subscribe to grou messages.
That is all for now, I will keep coming back and updating this discussion, please feel free to ask questions and offer advice, I am sure that together we will work this out and make this site as good as, if not better, than it was before we migrated.
Love, Light and Laughter
