Special Tip To Import and Export Users In WordPress

Why You Need to Import & Export Users in WordPress?
While there are several use-cases for importing and exporting WordPress users, the three most common scenarios when you need to import & export users in wordpress are:
  • When you purchase a website and want to merge the content and user base
  • When you want to consolidate two sites and merge their content and user base.
  • When you want to import all users into an email list or your CRM.
On large multi-author sites or a membership site in WordPress, each user profile has tons of useful data (like profile photo, bio information, social links, and more).

While you can surely ask them to recreate their profile, it’s inconvenient and not an ideal user experience.

Having said that, let’s see how to easily import and export users from one WordPress site to another.

How To Export Users in WordPress ?
First thing you need to do is install and activate the Cimy User Manager plugin.
Upon activation, you need to visit Users » Cimy User Manager page and scroll down to the export section.

The plugin will show you the upload path and will ensure that it’s writable. This is where your export CSV file will be stored.

By default, the plugin will use commas to separate fields and quotes as text delimiter.
If you will be using this CSV file elsewhere and need to change these values, then you can do so here. Otherwise, you can leave them as they are.

Next, you need to select how you want to sort rows in your export file. By default, the plugin will add users by their registration date. You can change that to sort by login name, username, email, or post count.
If you will be using the CSV file with Microsoft Excel, then you can check the box next to Enable Excel compatibility mode option.

If you have used Cimy User Extra Fields plugin, then the last option allows you to include that data into the CSV file as well.
Once you are done with the options, you need to click on the Export button. The plugin will now export your WordPress user data and save it as a CSV file on your server. You will see a success message with a download button along with the list of users exported to the CSV file. Simply click the download button to save the file in your computer.
Now you can use this file to import users into another WordPress site.

This step will also require the same Cimy User Manager plugin that we used above to export users. Make sure that you have this plugin installed and activated on the site where you want to import users. Next you need to visit Users » Cimy User Manager page to import users.

First you need to click on the choose file button and select the CSV file you want to import. If your CSV file uses different delimiters than comma and double quotes, then you need to change them here.

You also need to check the box next to Create Users option. This will allow the plugin to create new users with the information in your CSV file. Under the email notifications, you can check the options to send new users their account details and send password to existing users.

Finally, you can click on the Import button. The plugin will now upload your CSV file from your computer and import users into your WordPress database. You will see a success message with details on how many users imported, created, or modified during the process.
