Can I bulk add users?
Hi, I've been asked to make a closed forum for approx 500 users. Is there anyway I can bulk add the users into YABB rather than doing them 1 by 1 in the admin panel?

I know the usernames, Full names & password of all the users we need to add. Anyway of perhaps uploading an Excel or csv in order to add them in one go?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Can I bulk add users?
Considering how the various member files are put together doing it through another method would probably take as long as doing it one by one.

BUT - the member information is held in the Member/*.vars files AND in Memberinfo.txt AND in Memberlist.txt So you might be able to write a merge to create and populate the vars files. (Maybe) Then add the proper member info to the Memberinfo and Memberlist files. The name of the vars file is based on the username which should be pretty much alphanumeric (and all numeric usernames doesn't work all that well).

Thanks. I'd had a look at the .vars files to see what needed doing - to be honest we're only going to need to do it once so I might just bite the bullet and add them manually rather than trying to perfect a script to do it for me.
