    Using 3.1.3 with importer .04

    I have subdirectory sites. Some of my users are failing on import. I'm getting:

    Failed to create new user for Xxxx Xxxx. Their posts will be attributed to the current user.

    Some authors do work so I'm not sure why some are failing to import correctly. I didn't see this with 3.1.2.

    Any ideas?

    Export files are coming from a MU 2.9.2 version.

    If you edit the plugin and change line 17 so that IMPORT_DEBUG is true then you will get some more information as to why these users are not being imported.

    define( 'IMPORT_DEBUG', false );

    The most likely reason is that there are already users with the same login or email address registered to the site.

    have answser this queston on another thread:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-importer-wordpress-importer-problem-all-posts-author-become-admin?replies=9

    solution is remove non-word char(non alphanumeric character and the underscore),
    that is makesure usename only contains alphanumeric character and the underscore.

    or goto my post to find detail info:
