BuddyPress Members Import

Searched a lot in many places to import BuddyPress members from CSV file in WordPress database but did not get any help. So decided to write a plugin named BuddyPress Members Import which will import WordPress as well as BuddyPress members from CSV file to WordPress database.

Plugin name: BuddyPress Members Import

Features:

– Tested with upto WordPress 4.0 and BuddyPress 2.1.1
– WordPress /BuddyPress members can be import.
– WordPress users extra/custom fields can be mapped with the account.
– BuddyPress members extra fields(xProfile) can be mapped with the account.
– All type(check-box, radio, select, multiselect) xProfile fields can be import.
– Existing users account can be update.
– User password can be set from CSV file.
– Custom Email template.
– Different password to different user.
– xProfile fields default visibility maintain.
– Bulk Update BuddyPress Group Membership.
– Bulk update members from WordPress to BuddyPress.
– Mapping of members and groups can be done.
– Members AVATAR can be upload. Avatar will be re-size to BP default avatar size.
– 2 sample CSV file present to help you to create CSV file.
– Can import data other than English.

Important points:
– Before purchase read this
– Must have database backup before importing users/members.
– Individual data should be in double quote and separated by comma(,).
– To update the existing users you have to check the check-box ‘Update existing users’.
– First line should contain only fields name including WordPress default fields.
– For BuddyPress xProfile fields name should be as same as the name of database table column name. Mean if you go to any xProfile field in edit mode the ‘Field Title’ value should be the column name in CSV file.
– In CSV file member group id(s) column name should be ‘member_group_ids’. Before importing members all group should be created and in CSV file provide the group id(s) separated by double colon(::).
– To import values for multivalued field values must be separated by double colon(::)
Eg: if a multivalued field having data WordPress and BuddyPress then in CSV file you have to provide these values as “WordPress::BuddyPress”. If the value is only WordPress then you have to write in CSV “WordPress::”
– Check the check box(Send username and password to new users.) if you want to send username and password to users mail.
– Check the check box(Update existing users) if you want to update the existing users/members.
– Two example csv file will be present in plugin package.
– For better performance have below setting
upload_max_filesize = 32M
post_max_size = 64M
memory_limit = 128M

    • Hello Bruno,

      Checked the code again and seems if you will upload a CSV file containing 10 blank lines then only you will get the message as above. Let me know your case so if we can come to the solution which will help full for others too.

  • Hello,
    Can this plugin import avatars? or i guess put in the url to where the avatar image would be located so that the buddypress will pick it up? We were using an old social group platform and updating to buddypress. We have over 3000 users most of which have images that we can want to transfer over. Thanks!

  • I am trying to import to different csv files for members so that the complete profile information is in buddypress. However the user’s already exist in the wordpress user database and the user meta database on the new site. All we really need to do is match the current user and import there extended profile information into buddypress. Do you have any idea if your plugin can work for this?

    • Hello Chris,

      What I understand from your comment is you want to update the information for some pre existing users/members.
      If my understanding is correct then YES, you can use this plugin.
      What you have to follow:
      – In your CSV file you have to have user_email field because BMI plugin using this field for checking whether the user is present or not in database.
      – you have check the 2nd check box present in import form.

      Thanks

  • From the sample you have this can you explain more where did 2 and 1 came from? or where did you get it

    member_group_ids
    2::1

  • Hello – This is an awesome plugin and works as advertised, thank you!

    How do I add an avatar image? The directions of the plugin settings in the import screen are not clear or complete. What should the field name be? And will it import the avatar into the site files? IS it part of the site media library or somewhere else? Thank you!

  • Hello, Do you know if this could be used for s2member import ?

    The inbuilt one does not do what I need it too.

    Thanks

  • I am having a trouble when updating special characters using your plugin. For example Gené becomes Gené.

    Any idea how this can be fixed?

  • Good WordPress / BuddyPress plugin – does what it says on the tin and saved some time importing 40 users! Picked it up pretty quickly and managed to import custom profile fields too. Mike
