I’ve built a new site for an organization that has over 600 members. They’ve given me a CSV file with the following fields:
status (active vs inactive)
Is there a way to bulk import this list? (The members are not WordPress users.) Or will I need to manually create accounts for each user?May 7, 2014 at 11:22 pm #62766
Hi Linda Bell, you can try the following addon.
The above addon needs to be tweaked to incorporate the correct fields into eMember.
If you already have WordPress users then try the following:
Let us know if this helps you.

I tried doing that but couldn’t get it to work. Do you have a tutorial on how to do it?May 8, 2014 at 1:39 am #62768
Hi Linda, once you download the skeleton file and you have opened the file as instructed in the URL above change the following fields from the list you provided above.
website_login = user_name
password = for the password Simply make a bulk announcement telling your members to use the “reset/forgot password” option at the start.(As stated by admin on the link above)
first_name = stays the same
last_name = stays the same
status (active vs inactive) = account_state make this either pending or active
email = stays the same
All we have done is made a few changes to the fields you have so that they will work with eMemeber plugin.
Try the above and let us know if it works for you.
Kind regardsMay 14, 2014 at 4:37 pm #62769
That worked! I was able to get all of the members imported. Thank you.
Now, I’m having an issue with it not sending an email when you click Forgot/Reset Password. Can you please advise me on how to troubleshoot this?May 14, 2014 at 5:17 pm #62770wzpModerator
You’ve tried this on your own account?
And it isn’t in your spam folder?May 14, 2014 at 10:27 pm #62771
Wzp – I’ve checked my Spam folder. Nothing came in. So, I contacted the web hosting company in case it had something to do with a setting on the server. Their response was ” it is possible that you do not have the correct permissions set on the plugins directory.” (Any suggestions?)
Crispinhull – thank you. It’s nice to know it’s not just me that’s having these issues. Hopefully we can get this working well. (I love their eStore plugin!)May 14, 2014 at 11:05 pm #62772
Hi @Linda Bell, you might like to try the following URL in regards to your e-mail issue.

@Linda, This email issue you have is *just* for the reset/forgot password functionality?May 15, 2014 at 2:53 am #62774
After recursively setting the permissions to 755 on the FTP, we’re now we’re able to receive the forgot password e-mails from the server. However… the passwords that we receive do not work. The email received looks like:
Dear Linda Bell
You have reset your password.
Please advise, thanks.May 15, 2014 at 2:59 am #62775
To clarify (for others who are having a similar issue) the “permissions” were set to 644. After we changed it to 755, the (“forgot password”) email was able to come in.May 15, 2014 at 4:04 am #62776
mbrsolution – the “Email Functionality Tester” plugin was very helpful. With that, we were able to see that WordPress – and the server – were both able to send test emails. We received them right away.May 15, 2014 at 11:15 pm #62777
Update… As time is of the essence in getting the membership component of this website working we’ve decided to have all members go in and register manually instead of using the bulk upload feature. When names/passwords are entered in this manner, the “forgot password/reset” function works properly.
