Allows blog administrators to add multiple users to blogs at a time, using only a list of email addresses. When the specified email address matches an existing account, the account will be added as a user on the blog. Otherwise a new account is created and the new user added with the specified role. Based on DDImportUsers.
The plugin determines username automatically from the email address. For example, the email address email@example.com will produce the email address bgorges100. For that reason, this plugin works best when used in schools or organizations with official, unique email addresses.
When BuddyPress is installed, the welcome email will also include a link to the new user’s Edit Profile screen.
This plugin was developed for Blogs@Baruch of Baruch College’s Bernard L Schwartz Communication Institute. http://blsciblogs.baruch.cuny.edu

I am from iran .
plugin (Simple Import Users) only add one user to blogs at a time . I use from WordPress 3.0.1
can you help me ?
I am sorry because I can not speak english very well .
Hi Omid – Do your email addresses contain any special characters? The plugin might not work correctly if your email addresses contain periods, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Boone Gorges – My email addresses not contain any special characters .
In addition, I use from WordPress 3.0.1 Persian version
Paul Gibbs recommended to get in touch with you about a really cool and exciting viral tagging project we’re working on in WordPress and BuddyPress. Would you be interested in learning more? It’s a paid project.
Please get back to me and perhaps we can set-up a Skype.
Impressive stuff you’re doing at CUNY.
YourSports is located in Silicon Valley.

I also have the same problem, can only import one email at a time. Any suggestions?
The Plugin does not work .
same situation here. it will only import the first email in the list and then throws the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_user_to_blog() in /home/content/o/r/a/orangekoala/html/blog/wp-content/plugins/simple-import-users/simple-import-users.php on line 352
I’m running Word Press 3.0.1
jace – Have you activated Network? http://codex.wordpress.org/User:Andrea/Create_A_Network The plugin may not work on a single-user installation of WP.
Does the plugin still not work when emails have periods in them?
Thank you Boone. It worked right away, once I figured out how to Activate Network.
Once configured correctly, it works like a dream! Thanks for the help and the tool!
This may be outside the scope of your idea for the plugin, and I’ll try to do some rudimentary scouting out on my own, but how easy would it be to have this plugin also create a blog for the user, based on the same principle of the username creation: ie.: username.domain.com.
any idea how many users I can import at one time? I’m on the rackspace cloud. I’m porting over a userbase from an existing site – 300,000 members.
With wordpress 3.1 trying to import users i get this error.
Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_user_to_blog() in /var/www/sites/v10061701/html/blog-proprietarios/wp-content/plugins/simple-import-users/simple-import-users.php on line 396
mrjarbenne – It would be quite easy, in theory. See the function wpmu_create_blog() and its documentation in wp-includes/ms-functions.php
Jeromy – I think it’s mostly based on your memory limits, as well as any restrictions that there might be on how many emails can be sent out by your server. You might have to run some tests to find out.
Apartamentos – Have you activated Network? http://codex.wordpress.org/User:Andrea/Create_A_Network The plugin may not work on a single-user installation of WP.
tried it yet : says the import was complete , and you can view the result below but the results NEVER show .
I then check the email address ( a test one ) I used and nada / zero / zilch / diddly squat there either.
not running multisite – tried that – still don’t work
