Last week, we started taking Ning 2.0 to 3.0 migration requests from Network Creators that participated in our Sandbox program. This week, we are excited to announce that we are ready to open up migration to anyone who has been so patiently waiting for it. Phase One migration is on!
To upgrade your network, simply submit this migration request form.
Migration Process Overview
After you submit your migration request, a member of the Advocacy team will become your personal migration guide. He or she will work on copying your Ning 2.0 Network's data over to Ning 3.0. When the migration process is complete, your migration guide will ask you to review the content and publish it onto your new 3.0 Network. For a more detailed explanation of the process, check out this guide on What to Expect when You’re Migrating.
At this time, we can automatically migrate members, blogs, forums, photos, groups, and everything outlined on this page from your Ning 2.0 into your new Ning 3.0 site.
If you would like to back up any content that can’t be automatically migrated to Ning 3.0, we recommend using the Ning Network Archiver.
If your current Ning 2.0 network utilizes features that are on our Ning 3.0 product roadmap, then you might want to wait until a later phase of migration, as other types of content will be available for migration in a future phase.
If you are wondering what this whole migration thing is about, please check out our original announcement: Ning 3.0 – The Re-Imaginging of our Product and Feature Improvements to see what’s still to come.
Do I have to migrate right now?
Short answer: nope! Not yet. We noted last year when we launched Ning 3.0 that all Ning 2.0 customers would need to upgrade to Ning 3.0 at some point, and would have at least a year from the availability of the migration tools to do so. If you'd prefer to wait for a later phase of migration—either because you aren't ready yet, or you're waiting for more features to be released for Ning 3.0—you're more than welcome to upgrade during a later phase of the migration process.
