Import Users Plugin for WordPress

This plugin was created for people who need to easily add multiple users to their WordPress installation. Simply give it a list of usernames and email addresses, specify the role of the users (subscriber, author, admin, etc.) and it does the rest. It will automatically email each user and give them their randomly generated password, or let you specify one. It also has validation in place to make sure the usernames do not already exist, that the email addresses are not already in use, that the usernames are valid, etc. After it processes the information, it tells you how many were added, and upon error, gives you the reason why each failed.

  • Download the above file, rename it from .txt to .php, and upload it to your plugins directory.
  • Enable the plugin.
  • Use it by going to ‘Settings -> DDImport Users’


The userdata is entered in the following format:


To clarify, that is one user per line, with a pipe character between the values. Extra whitespace and empty lines are trimmed automatically. Be sure your data is entered properly! If you do not want to assign a password, first name, or last name, just do not enter them. The field separators are still required. Example:


After you have added your user data, you can choose the role for the users with the drop down box. The choices are: Subscriber (default), Contributor, Author, Editor, and Administrator.

If the password is not specified, one will be randomly generated. In either case, the password is emailed to the user.

  3. When I lived in Britain, my kitchen was full of labour-saving devices, but some of the things I

    You may wonder what they can offer you that a regular oven doesn’t have, and
    that would be a greater precision in what you’re cooking, meaning no failed recipes or undercooked food.
    Once you have an idea of what is available, research different brands and choose the best quality you can afford, because it will be worth it in the long run.
