Introducing JRapid WebForms (Part 2): Embed forms in Ning Networks
In this post I will explain you how to embed a WebForm in a Ning network as a Ning App.
First things first… what is Ning and what is a Ning App?
Ning is an online platform for people to create their own social networks. Ning networks are Facebook like, people can register in your network, make friends, leave messages in peoples “Wall”, share photos, write in a forum, etc. As well as Facebook, Ning created the Ning Apps which allows creators to add extra functionality to their networks.
Okey… and how does WebForms fits in all this stuff?
You can embed a WebForm as a Ning App and allow network-users to submit any kind of information like feedback, polls, product orders, etc !
Note: Currently, the JRapid Community site (which is a Ning network) uses four Ning apps: “Views”, “Widgets”, “Transformers” and “Templates”. These are not WebForms but are Ning Apps created through JRapid.
You can find them in the “Plugins” tab.

Okey… I will explain it.
Follow the 5-steps creation process as if you were creating another WebForm. Stop in step 5 and look at the bottom, you will see something like this:

A form will appear below. Complete it with the name of your Ning network and press ‘Tab’.
Finally, add the Ning App to your network.
You should not have any kind of problems !
