I used this successfully to get data out of Ning and am very grateful for that. I found it unnecessary to go all the way to convert the forums into BBpress forums as I was using WordPress with Buddypress as an intermediate step en route to Kunena.
Attachments are not handled and needed to be added manually to my new setup. This could be a showstopper if you have a great many.
A possible issue to watch out for -- because correcting it later (by manual edits to database tables, only if you know how and care to have things in exactly the original order) can be involved -- I came up one topic and thread short. It was exported ok from Ning but wasn't imported (a possible starting from 0 or 1 error; perhaps something else). It was the first topic in the old forum.
Followed all instructions except for the forum setting which is no longer available in Buddypress.
Everything went smooth until Events. There was no option to continue.
So this plugin partially works. If its every fully developed it would be a good plugin.
