    I found a plugin. It seems to work.
    Simple Import Users

    But I must assign each user to a buddypress forum group.

    Look at the last answer here:

    WordPress › Support ยป Programmatically Add User Using wp_insert_user()

    you would need to read your csv data into an array, and loop through it and execute the code example

    Normally the Simple Import Users plugin would be suggested but hasn't been updated in two years and hasn't worked for several versions of Wordpress.

    We took the liberty of fixing the original plugin, so it now works to do exactly what you have in mind.

    I dont have enough of a post count to put the link here but PM me and I will gladly share it for free,

      1. You can upload it to the WP plugin repository...
      2. You can post links, just leave out the http part

        My apologies on the delay. I did not see the thread was updated.
        I expected an email when someone replies to a thread i posted in.


        I did actually upload the plugin to the wordpress respository but I cannot find it.

        The email said:

        Your plugin hosting request has been approved.

        Within one hour, you will have access to your SVN repository at

        h**p://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/simple-import-users-updated/


        But if you go to that link there is nothing there.

        So...you can download the plugin from:
        h**p://dev.candleforex.com/simple-import-users.zip

    There are many plugins can solve your issue easily. Or you can use the csv file, go to phpMyadmin and import it into the table user.
