Bulk Import Users for phpBB 3.2

Post by GavW » Fri Jan 05, 2018 5:42 pm

Hey guys

I've noticed that there doesn't appear to be a compatible extension for bulk importing users to the latest 3.2 version of phpBB. The last mention of this that I can find is an older extension compatible with version 3.1: https://github.com/ForumHulp/Export-Import-Users

Being able to bulk upload would really help. I've already got the ACP Add User module installed (https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... dd_user_2/) which is great for adding individual users but occasionally I need to upload hundreds at a time and this process isn't ideal.

The 3.1 version will probably still work, but I have not tried it. Just because an extenstion was relesed for 3.1 does not mean that it will not work for 3.2 - most will work.

You could always try it or ask the author if it works with 3.2

This one doesn't seem to work... the extension itself says that it is still in development so doesn't look like it was ever finished.

Does anyone know of a bulk user uploader that will work with the latest 3.2.x version?

Anybody know if there has been a bulk user upload extension developed recently?

If you can't find it or the one that is for 3.1.x doesn't work with 3.2.x, then you answered your own question.

You’ve made an extension request so you’ll have to wait and see if anyone wants to take it on.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

But what is the format and the available information from the users?

Would ideally just like to upload a CSV of basic data such as name, email, phone, address etc which ideally will default everyone to have the main registered user permissions.
