Importing User list (5 posts)

    Hi I'm integrating word press with an existing website that already has a user/login. I've done this successfully but now my question is... how do I import the user list I already have without having to manualy enter each one?

    When a user is added does it update a text file somewhere I can modify and include my users in bulk?

    User information is stored in your database. Probably the easiest way to transfer user information across is to get your users to re-register, unless you know MySQL and can write a script to do it automatically.

    When you do get the user information across, users will still need to login twice - once for wordpress, another time for this other system you're using.

    What is this other system, by the way? There might be a plugin to do this for you (but I doubt it, unfortunately).

    Thanks. Actually I'm trying to set it up so there's only one login/registration for everything so they don't have to do it twice. but what you said helped me. thank you!

    You could modify both systems so that they use the same cookie. That might be easier, actually. That way when you login to wordpress, you'd automatically have access to this other system, and vice versa.

    I too have a userlist and would like to create bulk registrations for them. Is there an easy way to do it?
