Import Users from CSV
[resolved] Problems importing users (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I am looking for a plugin to integrate my membership system to a wordpress site.

    I need to export from my database, and import to wordpress with ID:s from my membership db, so that I can continually update users.

    When I try to import your example.csv it works when I do NOT have an ID, and updating works afterwards with the ID that WP has assigned.

    I however need to submit my systems ID:s from start, in order to be able to update continually.

    The goal is to let users log in and read material there, so I am also looking for a way to inactivate the users, and also be able to activate them over time when they have paid / not paid their membership fees.

    Is this something that I could use your plugin for?

    If not, do you know of any plugin that could do this? Or if it is possible to update the MySQL database directly (the tool I use for my membership system can access MySQL)

    Thanks for help;

    Per-Olof

    Hi perherman,

    Unfortunately, the plugin cannot create the user with the IDs from your system because it uses the WordPress core functions which don't allow to do that.
    But you can use phpmyadmin to import only the ID column into the users table, then use the plugin afterwards to import the other data and any future import.
