Jamroom is a modular open source Community CMS that is uniquely customizable and powerful.
Running on your own server, you have 100% privacy and control of your own system.
It has been powering thousands of sites worldwide since 2003.
A few months ago we were approached by a Ning user, unhappy with the way Ning was going and with their their lack of progress, updates and support. He asked if we could import his site from Ning to Jamroom. Investigation showed that this was indeed possible and straightforward to do, and spawned the 'Ning to Jamroom' project and the development of a module to take an exported Ning site archive of all members, their content, items and comments, and import it into a Jamroom site that replicates all Ning functionality (and adds a load more).
This project has now matured and has been taken up by many more Ning users who are now either running a 'live' version of their Ning site, are making the move, or are using Jamroom for their new sites and ideas. They are also contributing to a lively Jamroom forum helping more potential 'ex-Ningsters' out as well as fielding questions, suggestions and comments to us Jamroom developers (which we appreciate, of course).
If you think Jamroom might be the way forward for you, please checkout the links below. If you have any questions, please ask - we would look forward to seeing you on the forum.
