Import existing member db (4 posts)

    I was wondering how I can add an existing list of members as I transition to WordPress and Paid Memberships Pro. One would think that importing a csv file from another db would be possible.

    That's again for the great info. Wondering how to deal with member passwords, provide startup on import and have member change password in profile?? Is there another way?

    I'm not sure how the import plugins handle passwords.

    If you have plaintext passwords, you can md5 them and add them to the password field of the wp_users table and they will be converted to WP's salted hashes.

    On some sites, we've put in random passwords and then had the users go to WP's change password page to change their password and gain access to the new site.

    Good luck.
