I started a new Ning Community site a few weeks ago. I am not very knowledgeable with HTML, but I have been learning fast when it comes to customizing my layout to fit my needs. I am trying to figure out how I can integrate wordpress into my Ning site, without it looking like the user is leaving the ning community to come to wordpress? Is this possible? I am trying to make an online "news source". Its somewhere in between an online newspaper and a magazine.
The problem with Ning alone, is they only have one massive Blog, and one massive Forum to use for the whole site. I want to be able to link certain categories to specific blogs and forums, rather than every post going to one big blog. For my site, that would not make any sense. Since they are all very different "news" topics. You can see what I have right now here: http://unleashheart.ning.com/ Hopefully you will understand what I am going for from viewing the site (it is still being built, by the way...lots of pages are blank) The Art & Music news are "blogs" I created with html coding pasted into the "page" body. This will not be a realistic game plan for every post I will ever submit in the future, it is very confusing.
I asked the ning forum about this, but I don't think they understood what I was looking for. So, if anyone has ANY advice, tips, or tutorials on adding wordpress to my ning without it looking like a different site (and how I would do that) that would be AWESOME!! I have been going nuts with this.
