I did find this.. But i believe aa CSV file is a copy of users you already have so you can transfer them when you change forums.....
I need to add a large list of users who have never been listed...
Am I wrong? Thanks

If you just take the time to actually _read_ the post over there you see that it is an IMPORT function...
So the users do not exist before..

:)

well... that would be an option.
You can also create a CSV file with your favorite txt editor like Notepad or something equal.

Make sure to make a backup first ;)

example of a CSV:

Code: Select all

some_name,some_id
Alkmaar,89
Almelo,90
Almere,91
Alphen a/d Rijn,92

Hi,

I have uploaded the mod -- for importing multiple users using CSV file. Everything seems to work fine, until I try to import the file from the directory. I receive the confirmation that users have been added; however, when i check the userlist, only the user on the first row of the CSV file was added. Any idea why I'm having this problem.

Thanks!

I have no clue, because I'm not the mod author I suggest using the mod topic to get your answer :)
