Import users from a CSV file into WordPress
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.
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.
Exactly what I needed to go alongside a Google Apps login plugin.
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 :)
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!
helped me on importing thousand of users! This will be on my tools from now on! :)
I use this all the time when updating our old sites to new WordPress installs.
Does the job, *rather* well. May want to look at the following:
1. More descriptive error messages.
2. Provide filter for default action on error?
Plugin is simple and works well. I was able to import my 770+ users and only needed to break my import file into two parts.
I was also able to extend the basic functionality by hooking into the provided hooks built into the plugin. Nice!
Thank you for putting this together, saved me a ton of time.
I have used this plugin for a couple of websites and the recent update (to include 'updating existing users' is extremely useful and makes this an awesome all-around plugin for importing/updating any types of members on your site (with wp_usermeta included in the CSV file as well if you so choose)...
FOR THOSE WITH ISSUES OF PASSWORDS RESETTING WITH USER UPDATES:
I had this issue for a little while, but have found a solution that I hope the author implements after reading this (and if it works with his/majority of other plugin user configurations):
Whether you build your own table to import - OR - borrow from the example file provided by plugin author, you may want to completely DELETE the column 'user_pass' - NEW users will still receive an auto-generated password and EXISTING users will NOT have their passwords reset consistently upon every import you make...
This has helped me on about four different websites since the update, so I am thinking that my solution may help others out there who keep downgrading this awesome plugin...
Excellent job Ulrich Sossou - You the man!
PS: If you find this helpful, you can put this in your documentation to help others with this issue...Have a great day!
