Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.

Why should I migrate?


NING 3.0 boasts a plethora of advantages and quality improvements over the previous version of the platform. These include:


  1. Advanced customization
  • You will have more themes and more tools to customize the design of your network. 
  • A newly integrated Landing Page Builder will help you design a professional landing page that could serve as a homepage for your network.


  1. Better control over your website and content
  • Customize the structure of any page and add the desired features in a couple of clicks.
  • Create multiple instances of each feature (blogs, forums, videos, etc.).
  • Allow or disallow network members to use specific features based on their member category.
  • Get more flexibility when structuring your network and make it easier for your members to find and access the content they need.


  1. Flexible privacy control

Decide who can contribute content to your network and use its specific feature instances.


  1. Mobile responsiveness by default

Since most traffic comes from mobile devices nowadays, your website needs to adjust to different screen sizes. Also, mobile responsiveness is one of the major SEO factors that influence your network rankings on search engines.


  1. SEO features

Due to frequent changes in SEO regulations, NING 2.0 was lacking SEO functionality for a long time. Meanwhile, NING 3.0 offers SEO tools to help you improve the online visibility of your network.


  1. Advanced eCommerce

With NING 3.0, you can monetize content, accept donations, or set up multi-level membership scenarios in which different member categories have different access rights for adding/viewing content.


  1. Advanced API

The next-gen API provides users with more flexibility in terms of advanced customization and scalability.


  1. Polls

Launching polls and surveys allow you to get feedback from your members on different topics.


  1. Greater development potential

Newer versions of the product will be compatible with NING 3.0 networks only, offering even broader possibilities for customization and scalability. 


  1. Regular updates

While the development of NING 2.0 has been stopped, NING 3.0 gets constant improvements and updates.

    come more often in the creators, every day there is an update, when you are the Owner it is up to you to inform you on how to fix things, I have two sites 2.0 and 3.0, for my part 3.0 is superior, inform you about the creators for css and javavascrip and be united as 20 years ago,to make your site grow!
    • I don't see how visiting the creators more often will assist with getting the Ning technical team to fix the activity feed in our 6 week old Ning 3.0 network - it's been non-functional for 2 days this time, for 4.5 days just last week.
      I had far fewer issues in the 11 years of our Ning 2.0 network than in the 6 weeks we've been on Ning 3.0.
      I'm glad you are enjoying Ning 3.0. I don't see much in terms of redeeming qualities when the basic functionality keeps breaking, over and over.

        we faced problems in the old classic ning and in 2.0, you will see that everything will ok be for your 3.0 soon,just a little patience
  • I understand that that Ning 3.0 is being constantly improved. I wonder when you expect it to be stable?
    Our Ning 2.0 network was rock solid. Since we've migrated to Ning 3.0, we've had nothing but technical issues. The disappearing activity feed is the most distressing. Last week, all our history disappeared from the Activity feed. It took support/technical team 4.5 days to resolve. But wait, last night it all disappeared again. The fix that took 4.5 days to get to broke after 3 days. It's now been 24 hours with no progress on the fix, no update from the technical team. Please tell me again about all the great new features?
    • Ning’s main servers are in the US but the staff is in Ukraine. They may have a hard time keeping up right now.
    • I was coerced to moved from Ning 2 to Ning 3. Big mistake. The only way I was able to rid myself of so many problems was to leave Ning.
      • I'm fast coming to the same conclusion - we migrated because of all the bugs/no support. I thought we'd waited long enough (ie. for Ning 3.0 to mature). We had about 1.5 months of really great network. Then we started to use it.... May I asked where you moved to? And are you happy with it? Were you able to extract your content? I can't find many software-as-service sites like this and I really don't want to "build my own" if I don't have to.
  • Does Ning 3 have photos and videos for members to share and rate?
    • But from what I understand it does not have an ALBUM feature... only individual pics. Is this still true?
