Saved me a lot of time!
By , for WP 3.9.1

The plugin works pretty well. It lacks a little of documentation, but in case you missed it (like I did), there is a link to a demo CSV under the upload field.

It takes some time to add all the users (my list was only 20 users), but that's just what WordPress does, not problem with the plugin.

If you need to bulk import users this plugin is a great tool.

Excellent plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Thanks for this plugin it saved me a lot of work as I already had 2600+ members in a membership database and it was easy to add them to my WordPress site with this plugin. Worked perfectly.

Confusing at first, but works well
By , for WP 3.9

The instructions are kind of confusing, and it takes some coding knowledge to figure out how to add your own fields (like if you want to import customer billing and shipping addresses), but once you have all the proper fields, it works very well and very fast.

it fucks with the database
By , for WP 3.8.2

after trying to import the file, i was forced to reset my password of the admin, the only user i had after the process (https://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password), because i could not log in. this happened 2 times.

Did exactly what it meant to do!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Worked great. Didn't allow me to import users with the same email but I got around that with a custom filter:

add_filter('pre_user_email', 'skip_email_exist');
function skip_email_exist($user_email){
return $user_email;
(Source: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/75565/how-to-use-same-email-for-multiple-users )

It still throws an error but the importing get's done.

amazing plugin -- perfect solution
By , for WP 3.7.1

amazing plugin, exactly what I needed. Imported 356 users with 20-30 custom meta fields in under 30 seconds -- looks like data was mapped perfectly when i logged in after import. Seriously just saved me hours of work :)

Easy to use
By , for WP 3.7.1

Very easy to use, a csv sample is provided!
No extra features, just fill the csv file with author names, passwords, etc... and upload it.
I like it!

Nice little plugin, does exactly what it says, quickly with data integrity.

However, I ran into a problem at the begginning, which took a while to troubleshoot.

The plugin was not working at all with my .csv, and the error log was not showing anything. It would fail every time. However, the example csv would work as advertised.

After a lot of playing around I found that when I was saving the .csv out in excel, it was not putting quotes around the entries, and also, must have been putting in some headers in the file or something the plugin didn't like, as if I opened the example file in excel, closed it and tried to import it, it woudlnt work.

If anyone is having issues like this, try these steps;

Open your csv in excel, and format it to make it look like the example csv. Then format all boxes to be text, or add quotes around them manually (I used = "'"&a2&"'").

Save this out as a csv, and open in your text editor of choice.

Open the example in your text editor (I used sublime2), and remove all the dummy entries. Copy and paste your entries into the example file.

Save this and then try and import it. Good luck!
