FORUM

I'm working with a client who's interested in having an off-site backup of his Ning site. I have noticed that none of the Group wall threads nor long threads in forums have more than 200 messages in them.

He'd really like all of his data. Is there some way to change this?

    I ran into a similar situation a while back.  The way I was able to solve the problem was by scraping out the parts not provided by the archiver using  import.io data scraper... i built an extractor for one group and then imported the URLs of the other groups to run the same extractor on all of the groups.  export the scraped data as CSVor JSON and then merge that file with with file from the archiver.  let me know if this doesn't make sense..

      there are certainly other scrapers as well... you might even be able to do it with  Grepsr chrome extension or chrome scraper extension

      • Thanks! I've been wanting to avoid dealing with a scraper, but I'm guessing that's going to be the only solution.

          yeah, unfortunately it has become inevitable... you can probably learn it in a night without distractions
