Ning settings

A few days ago I think we got a spam comment to one of our Ning sites.  I’ve not yet check the settings for that – who can post comments – and truthfully I haven’t spent enough time with Ning to be comfortable with these things.  Can the site be publicly readable but have only members post comments?  I don’t know.  If not, we can’t really recommend it for this sort of use because the spam can kill it.

  2. Looks like a social network's main page can be made visible to the public, while keeping the rest of the content visible to members only. Then "featuring" can be used to control what gets added to the main page. To control membership, it can be limited to "Only Invited People" and/or require approval before joining.
