Import Users from CSV
[resolved] Password not working after import (4 posts)

    I am trying to import users with the csv import tool. In principle it works fine, except that the passwords do not work. Neither an imported password, nor a generated password.

    Once I reset the password using the lost password functionality, everything works fine.

    Any ideas why this might be?

    Not sure if this is relevant, but it appears that the hashing algorithm used is different to a user created "normally", for comparison:

    standard user: $P$BWqNzfhDlY6vdg3vllhWjyPH1gkm6R.
    imported user: 12c0e26e84468fd681839667de5ef598

    Both use the same password.

    OK, solved this. Or at least, the problem appears to be with another plugin and the way it handles passwords. It's a membership plugin and appears to still be using md5 for hashing the password. Disabling the plugin before import solves the problem.

    Glad you found a solution. Maybe you should contact the authors of that membership plugin? md5 is not secure enough.
