[resolved] Do any characters need to be escaped in the password field? (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I was wondering if any special characters needed to be escaped in the password field of the csv file?

    I've tried migrating a password string like

    (YuL:"Q"76\,(

    and the user imports successfully. However the password does not work at the login screen. I realize it's a funky example but I tested it creating a WordPress user the "standard way" (create new user etc) and it worked with those chars. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Jer

    I think the reason it doesn't work is the " (double qoute)

    Yes, it due to the double quote. Try escaping double quotes by doubling them (i.e. replace each double quote by two double quotes).
