    I know the names and details of 150 blogs I want to setup on my site.

    Is the a way to create these blogs without do them one at a time ? if they is no script I'm quite adpat to hacking away at databases so how hard would it be to replicate them in a csv file upload ?

    If I have to I can make all the owners of the blogs the same person.

    well, the premium solution is this: http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/blog-and-user-creator

    there was also an old csv2blog plugin floating around somewhere.

    also have a look at this new plugin, maybe you can adapt it to do what you want: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/demo-data-creator/

    the last plugin seems to do exactly what you want, except that I guess it uses random data, but you could hack it to use your own data for blog/user creation.

    Good luck! And don't stray over to the dark side ;-)

    Mmm... yes thats very good thanks a lot.

    I will be signing up for the prem service but my problem is I'll be away from development for about a month soon so don't want waste money :-) cheap I know but I'm not rich by any means. I'm hoping that I can get the site up and working and earning so I can signup and push development further with the help of the prem plugins.

    Thanks again Ovidiu.

    Noted ;-)

    Got an error with the data creator, it created the users and blogs but didn't link more then the first one. Said something about me test data but I didn't change anything.

    Doesn't matter as it gave me a reason to look at the database and I see the format to create blogs is not that difficult. Just a lot of find a replacing should do it. I'll get my first blog exactly the way I want it and then create a SQL INSERT file.
