Add users from another DB

    I’m hoping to upgrade our site and our users to Buddypress.

    Currently there are a couple of hundred users (with detailed profiles, including work history etc) that I would like to add to members (and groups) then import their data manually.

    Then send them their username and password. But… BP won’t even detect a new user that is added manually by the admin, only through the registration form.

    Does this mean that I will effectively lose all my users and their data and have to start from scratch?

    Thanks

    Thanks modemlooper.

    That solved one problem but I found another major obstacle – no ‘other’ field option on profile multi select boxes – that means I won’t be using Buddypress for the members site after all.

    Thanks for taking the time to answer.

    Actually modemlooper, this plugin doesn’t work either.
    After creating a new user, the plugin shows “No unactivated members were found.”

    I imagine you have to use the registration form, which then sends out an activation email, which is the exact opposite of what I wanted, IE; no email until all the users have been added and the profiles have been created and completed.
