    Hello,

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I looking for a way to automatically create subdomains and users from a list in an excel csv file. I have a list of users for my WMU site and would like to give them access to an extra subdomain. They have all supplied me with the subdomain they want yet it has taken me so long to enter them in and not even half way through.

    Is there a way? Thanks

    Just because you bumped :)

    Brand new plugin today: http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/blog-and-user-creator

    It's form based rather than csv based - but to be honest we find that a lot easier - although we do also have a csv creation plugin that we use with Edublogs Campus users - you can see the blog & user creator (the one linked to above) and the batch creator (below) instructions here:

    Let me know if the batch creator looks like what you;re after and we'll see if we can get it together for a release.

    Thanks for your help, yet to find a batch creator that works with WMU 2.7.1 though

    We love a bump we do :)

    OK, here you go - automatic blog and user creation (aka batch create)

    Basically you just need to upload a text file with your values in a CSV format, for example:

    demoblogname1,Demo Blog Title 1,username1,userpass1,useremail@domain.com
    demoblogname2,Demo Blog Title 2,username2,null,useremail2@domain.com
    null,null,username3,userpass3,useremail3@domain.com

    User with blog and preset password:
    demoblogname1,Demo Blog Title 1,username1,userpass1, useremail@domain.com

    User with blog and auto-generated password:
    demoblogname2,Demo Blog Title 2,username2,null,useremail2@domain.com

    User without blog:
    null,null,username3,userpass3,useremail3@domain.com

    Pretty neat huh :)

    Let us know how it works for you and if there's anything else you'd like to see.

    Cheers, James
