Support » Plugin: Export Users to CSV » Username ID output

  • Resolved Raesgo


    Hey There, great plugin thus far shooter.

    I am however wondering if it’s possible to export the actual Usernames as opposed to a random ID number?

    If this is possible let me know, or if i’m missing a setting or something.

    Hmmm… you should see that as user_login and/or user_nicename

    See an example here:

    If you don’t see that then yes, something is incorrect.

    Thanks for the fast reply,
    Ok, mine does look like that so the issue must be on my end.

    Basically whats happening is that when I import the list, all my users have a Username that is the ID as opposed to an actual username. Not sure that falls on you though. Is the user_nicename field suppose to be the username?

    Glad to hear it’s not on my! Whew! 😉

    If you go to the Profile Edit screen of any user, this is how those fields are mapped:

    If you’re enjoying this plugin, I’d love a kind review from you here.


    Ya, all my Username fields are just numbers when I import them back in. Doesn’t really work if all my users are random numbers.

    Any way to export the username field as well? If not no worries. I’ll figure something else out.

    IF you see my first screenshot, the user_login is the user name field.

    Yes, I noticed that, thanks.

    The issue I’m having is that some people don’t use an email address for their username. (and again not your fault, your plugin does what you say it will do)

    When I import the .csv generated by your plugin, I get an error for every user with a ‘user_login’ that isn’t an email address.
