Support » Plugin: Import and export users and customers » Recommendations for EXPORTING user data?

    I’ve taken a look at the profile pages of the two authors (Alberto Hornero & Javier Carazo) and did not see any plugins for the other half of this task – EXPORTING user accounts – so I’m left to wonder: What plugin do other WP admin’s prefer for exporting user account information?

    TIA,

    @epretorious,

    Good morning Eric, currently we haven’t any plugin to export data.

    This plugin has some limitations (importing roles, metadata in arrays, etc) so any plugin that export all users data in CSV could work if you later manage the file.

    If you want a plugin to export users data, we can develop it, if you want support the develop.

    Thank you.

    Thank you, Javier:

    Would you please clarify the last sentence in your reply? I’m not quite sure what you meant when you said “…if you want support the develop.”

    TIA,

    @epretorious,

    Support a free software develop: you pay the develop.

    We create free software for everyone, we give free support, but yes, personal needs like yours have to be payed.

    Unfortunately we live of all this and we cannot work for free all the time 🙁

    I am certainly not opposed to paying for software that helps me in some way, Javier. I’m just a bit reluctant to pay for *custom* software. e.g., Who will maintain the code as updates and security-fixes are needed? Would you continue to maintain/update the software for a period of time? Or, as the person who purchased the custom software: Would I need to identify the security-fixes that should be applied and then pay you a second time for the fixes? See: It gets complicated FAST!

    I’d prefer to purchase commercially-developed software or to purchase a subscription for commercially-maintained software. That way: I get the functionality that I need [for a price] and you have a vested interest in maintaining and expanding the code [so that more customers will purchase/lease the software].

    Have you considered a subscription model for a complete import/export tool? I’d certainly pay an annual subscription fee for that! 🙂

    @epretorious,

    Yes we have thought about that but currently we have no time.

    The fastest option for you is:
    1) you support the new feature
    2) it will be included in this plugin
    3) if there is some problem this would be part of the plugin so the maintenance won’t be a problem

    Tell me.

    Thanks, Javier:

    I don’t think that I’m ready to get into subcontracting custom module development – Software development is unfamiliar territory and extra overhead for me. I’m in the business of publishing my blog and I’d like to keep it as simple as That! 😉

    Gentlemen – I’d like to remind you that this forum is not the place to discuss financial or contractual arrangements. Please take those discussions off-line. Thanks.

    @bdbrown,

    Sorry I only want to clarify that we cannot always create new feature for personal requirements for free.

    @epretorious thanks we have to think about it in the future, do a CSV with the correct format and all will work perfect.

    Not cheap but works well:
