  • Resolved Guy Chapman


    The following error is generated for all lines of a csv exported using the same version of the same plugin on the same version of WordPress:

    “no username provided neither ID, whatever you are trying to do this will be skipped”

    – using an id
    – not using an id
    – removing the id column altogether
    – checking that all emails, usernames are unique

    The tool will not even re-import its own export in the same blog.

    I need the csv file and the screenshot of the settings used to know what’s wrong.

    You can email guy <at> vguy <dot> co <dot> uk with address I can mail them to, or let me know where I can upload them.

    The problem is you deleted the text delimiter when exporting, but not when importing.

    That’s f***ing Excel, then.


    Hey, I’m adding what I learned yesterday when importing, because I had the same problem. Also, it’s a good idea to export what users you do have and then clear the contents except for the first row to get a good template for importing.

    1: I used a formula to make usernames in excel combining first and last name. The forumla for excel is =CONCATENATE(A2,”.”,B2) but replace your cells with the right names. Mine was C2 and D2. I put a . in the middle because CIMY didn’t like the _ in the username. Hit enter, don’t click anything else or you’ll add a cell or change the cell name.

    2. I then clicked on the bottom right corner and dragged my select box downward through the column to create usernames for everyone in my list.

    3. I then went back to the top, right clicked or control clicked if you’re on a Mac on the column. I copied it. Then right clicked again to paste. A small paste block appears in the top right corner of the column. I clicked on that and said Values Only. I then saved the file.

    4. When I went to import, where it says text delimiter, I deleted the double quotation mark. Then I imported the CSV file. And voila! Takes a while, but it was done!

    Oh another thing, if you’re on a Mac, you may need to save the file as a Windows Comma Separated Value file, not just a regular one. I’m on a Mac too.
