    Need a check box or something like that for featured post function
    Hi creators,

    Featured post function is very important for SEC, as we can use the feature for advertisement posts or important posts. To make a post as featured, we (admin) have to go to Post/Edit post and check in the check box. I think it will be better if we have the check box when admin post an article.

      Arnfinn Ingebrigtsen Why is it not possible to have addthis or shareit share buttons in the gallery viewer ?

      Lacey Wallace I'd like to see a bigger "Create Account" Icon... or is there any chance it could just say "Sign up!" in big letters?

      Arnfinn Ingebrigtsen There is also a bug with the comment from posts>li when you have set the posts to external and not internal. When you push the comments count, you should be able to jump to the page post and see the comments, but you are jumping to the external page. So to have posts go external is not useful

      Rick Von Ruden Why not do blog posts for cloud fixes like you do for php. Some cloud subscribers don't come here. Also I don't see any responses on your bug and suggestions site for cloud.

    API - We need it.

    Application programming interface

    An application programming interface specifies how some software components should interact with each other. Wikipedia

    Small tip: Add a contact page in your cloud site
    Hello creaters,

    I would love a official contact page for all of our SE cloud site, but now we have to wait. No problem, I will share with you a small tip that can help you to create a contact page for your site. Follow these steps.

    1. Go to your admin/page template/add new template. Fill the page title as "Contact", Page name "contact.html", page URL: "http://WWW.YOURSITE.COM/contact"

    2. Go to the site http://kontactr.com/, register a free account, follow instruction, copy and paste AJAX Widget code into the "content" field of the contact page. Notice: paste the widget code between "".

    See my example below:

    If you want to contact us about anything relating to the site (or anything unrelated for that matter) then you can use the form. We'd love to hear from you...

    3. Go to the footer template: add the link of the contact page "http://YOURSITE.COM/contact" in footer. If you do not know how to add link in the footer, check the topic http://community.socialengine.com/post/132086/how-to-add-link-in-footer.

    It's done. Check it lives here, www.aquanetviet.org.

    Good luck to you:)

    Ability to preview audio files before downloading?

    I think it would be beneficial to be able to preview an audio file before downloading it. Maybe put a small music player below the attachment?

    Option to view full and minimize in posting area
    I think SE need to add an option for view full and minimize in posting area like the screenshot. It's very difficult to view and edit a long article in the small box, and the problem is that when we "miss click" outside the post box, it will lost all things we add before! It's make me confusing.
    Anyone have a same problem? Any solution for that?
    Thank you

    Many Ning Members Moving To SocialEngine
    We've recently seen a lot of Ning users email us or switch platforms entirely over the last few weeks. If this sounds like you, I'd love to hear more about what made you pull the trigger and move to SocialEngine. :) Thanks guys!

      Kimmie [15205,Jule] , I would definitely recommend SE Cloud. It is what we have chosen and I'm absolutely in love with it. I have no development skills and work with an affordable designer [73,seTweaks] . If you can change to SE Cloud I think you will be really happy. The admin panel is user friendly and you also get SEC support. I literally tell people I have an IT team because of the support they provide. For me, support responses are always within 24 hours and my problem is always resolved or put on the list to be resolved and they come through. So I hope you give SEC a chance. If you have questions or want to msg me please feel free to do so.

      Alex Guillaume Ning or SEC are a great tool when you begin a social network. But when you want a lot of optimizations, SE PHP is a great tool... to date. I really look forward to launch my new social network and to ask my 16000 Ning members to switch to it. Hope this time it will be the last time I loose most of my network when moving from one platform to an other. (SocialGo -> Ning -> SE php)
      PS : Developping a complete SE php, runing fast, with some optimizations, and good pluggins... cost me about 5000$. :-(
      For the same platform, home made in 2009, would have cost me 150 000 to 200 000 $ !!! :-)

      So ask me the question in 6-12 month... I'll tell you if it's a good idea or not to switch to SE !

      Joan Hi Drew, we're total newbies and we initially had about 6 ideas for social sites. We settled on one and then had a trial with SE and Ning. We thought SE was great all along but went with Ning 'cos they offered a paid access solution with a ready hosted platform. SEPHP was not something we felt we had the skills for at the time and we just didn't want the hassle or cost of self hosting. It was a very stressful time! Cut a long story short Ning just didn't deliver. It was ridiculously slow, clunky, uninspiring, boring, the community manager was as much use as a wet rag and in the end it just didn't excite us. SEC on the other hand does. It's fast, intuitive, great design, great team, great support, priced just right and just a great place to be. We're using Cloud and we love it! In January the Ning Community manager left to go elsewhere (please tell us he's not coming to SE!) Before he went he posted that Ning had "big things" planned but he couldn't say what it was, blah, blah, blah. So maybe the recent interest from Ning customers might correspond to whatever the "big thing" was, not working out? Anyway we've solved our paid access problem (we think) simply by using a Paypal Subscribe button and we'll launch on SEC soon. We won't win any design awards or anything but we're taking a longer term view on the SE team. Kind of like betting on Dyson, early on against Hoover. So thanks Drew for the often insightful community input and the rest of the SE team for their hard work in delivering a fantastic product. Keep focused 'cos you've got the beginnings of a great company.

    Hi [37,Alex Benzer] [250,Drew Frey] [38,Shaun Harding] and everyone in the community..

    I think in the ADMIN when we create CATEGORIES we need to be able to add bit of more details to be more SEO effective.
