Hi, I would like to import test users from several sources - it would be great if you could make a generic importer from your ning importer. I think it would be the most important part of helping people to come over to oxwall providing a good importer for several tools.

Surely you can just use the ning importer. Is it not just a csv file? Just enter in the other user details etc into the ning csv file.

May be an idea for a blank ning csv file to be posted...

Where can I find this "ning importer"?

I want to transfer userdata and (if also possible) the topics of the forums from a vBulletin system to the Oxwall system.

Currently, ning importer doesn't available in our store due to the last changes in ning import format.
Regarding importing from other community systems... this is a really good idea, but we don't have enough free hands for this. It is necessary to develop full data migration plugin for specific system if you want to import all data with images and files.
