Simple bulk import members from spreadsheet fix?

Hello all,

I'm transferring an existing (disastrously implemented) community site over to to OCP. What I'm stuck with is a list of about 300 members with usernames and very very basic profile information (around 6 fields in all).

I've seen the importers for PHPBB etc. but was wondering is there a quick and dirty way of doing a mass import just from a spreadsheet or direct to database…really really don't want to have to use the admin tool to do each one individually.

Any help much appreciated.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
