Preparing for the import
The Jamroom Core comes with a set of modules to provide basic CMS functionality. To import your Ning archive you are very likely to need some additional modules installing in order to receive Ning content.
The following lists the additional Jamroom modules that will likely be needed (and which can be installed from the Jamroom Marketplace: ACP -> Core -> Marketplace):
Any uploaded Ning audio items (mp3s, wmas etc.) are imported to the jrAudio module.
Any uploaded Ning video items (flvs, mp4s etc.) are imported to the jrVideo module.
The Ning video archive may also contain embedded YouTube items which if found, are imported to the jrYouTube module.
Any uploaded Ning photo items (jpgs, gifs etc.) are imported to the jrGallery module.
Any Ning events (gigs, concerts etc.) are imported to the jrEvent module.
Any Ning groups are imported to the jrGroup module.
Any Ning group discussions are imported to the jrGroupDiscuss module.
Any Ning pages are imported to the jrGroupPage module.
Any Ning discussions that are not associated with a group are imported to the jrForum module.
Any Ning notes are imported to the jrNingMemo module.
Any Ning comments, on any of the above items, are imported to the jrComment module. All Ning items, including members, can be commented on, so the installation of this module is pretty essential.
You want to assess what is in your Ning archive and decide which of the above Jamroom modules you need to install.
From your Jamroom site's Admin Control Panel (ACP) click on Core, then Marketplace in order to view and install the required modules.
If you are using our hosting, all of the above modules (and more) are freely available and can be installed with a single click via the Jamroom Marketplace, accessible in your site's control panel. If you are running Jamroom on your own hosting, the required modules are still available via the Marketplace but will need purchasing first.
Once installed, Jamroom modules need to be enabled and have their Global Config and Quota Config setup.
