Is there any plan to consolidate the groups beyond the front page communities?

Thanks in advance!

I like the new Group guide!

Can't join groups: Can't Edit MY Discussions, can't insert images or videos in either discussions or comments, can't delete comments, and can't send messages ANY HELP at all appreciated!

Jean-Paul, Sam, Andy- Keep in mind: Code snippets, Java, etc. can only be used by the group creator or GovLoop admin. If I try to embed code, (just as a regular assigned admin), it won't work.

I've noticed that often people link blog/discussion posts within other pages/groups to draw the existing audience into the new space - is this ok to do?

Hi Jean-Paul - Yes. You can add widgets to the text boxes. In fact, I just embed a survey widget to the RL Government in SL and Virtual Worlds in Government groups, so I know it works. You can any code there - slideshare, youtube, widgets, etc. Let me know if you have trouble.

Thanks, Sam!
I was used to seeing my photo album on my page and it vanished one day. Thanks for the link. I see how to get there thru "Resources".

No, Ed, they're still there ...

I guess they just removed the links to them.
Comment by Ed Albetski on March 19, 2010 at 9:33am
I must not have been paying attention... Are the photo albums gone? Was this done for space? Not complaining, just curious.

It's just not native in the Ning technical approach right now. They are working on a big rebuild in March time frame where addressing a lot of issues including Groups so hopefully will be included there. For right now, apps are strictly for whole network or individual profile...But will keep pushing...
