Hi all,

has someone succeeded in using jQuery inside a Ning App? Are there things to take care? Something else that nont using AJAX jQuery call and use instead makeRequest?

Thanks in advance

I've used jQuery and jQuery UI inside of several Ning Apps. Since Ning Apps live inside of an iframe they don't affect the rest of the page.


You wont be able to use jQuery's built-in AJAX methods because of the cross-domain issue. To make external requests you must use OpenSocial's makeRequest which proxies the request through Ning to get around the cross-domain issue. As a side-benefit, OpenSocial can sign the request to ensure the request came from Ning.
