FAQ

I have a CSV file but this plugin didn’t work.

This plugin does NOT support EVERY type of CSV file. File structure must match with the sample one.

Some strange characters are displayed in group name and/or group description after i import file, why?

Change your CSV file encoding to utf-8 and retry.

I’m getting `request timeout` messages while trying to import CSV file. What should i do?

Split your CSV file into two or more and retry. If it still continues, contact your hosting support.

I’m currently using BuddyPress `Group Forums` component, is it still possible to auto create forums?

No. BuddyPress officially suggests NOT to use this component. Instead you should use bbPress.

Is it free to use on several sites and/or domains?

Yes, if you follow licence guidelines.

Is it free to sell to 3rd parties?

Yes, if you follow licence guidelines.

May i translate into my language?

Yes please, i’d be very pleased.

Are you planing to add more features?

Yes, may be, i dont know…

Reviews

Works as expected. Awesome!

I just ran this today on latest versions of WP/BP and it works! Directions are a little spotty so for anyone needing to use it you have to do two things:
1. Extract the zip file, locate and open the bpgi.php file using Notepad++, and locate this on line 19: add_action( ‘plugins_loaded’, ‘buddypress-groups-import_textdomain’ );

Change it to add_action( ‘plugins_loaded’, ‘bpgi_textdomain’ );

2. Open a text file and paste in this:

,Your Group Name, Your group description, public, yes, admins
,Your Group Name, Your group description, public, yes, admins
,Your Group Name, Your group description, public, yes, admins

Make sure you don’t have any spaces at the bottom of the file.
