It’s much easier to import users instead of inserting them one by one. Import tool for users is a new feature included in our 3.8.0 release as well as many other features.
How to use it
Create a CSV file in utf8 with header (lower case):
name email password image_1
name: Name for user
email: Email address of user
password: Password of the user. Can be left empty and the system will generate a random password
subscriber: 0 or 1 values. 1 if the user is subscribed to receive notification emails; o if not
We allow to upload user profile images. Images allow remote images like http://lorempixel.com/1200/800/people/ or local, using as base your site root, for example /images/import/user1_pic1.png. The images will be downloaded, resized, thumbed, and deleted on completion.
Now it’s possible to import users with custom fields. All you need to do is to add the fields in the CSV file as headers, with the prefix cf_. For example, if you have a custom field called “company” in your site, you need to include it in the CSV file headers as “cf_company”.
