I want to import user information using csv file. I use BP-Groups-Import-User plugin.

The challenge is to add column first name and last name in csv file but i can not get the value to store.

my table is

| email      | first name | last name | moderator | admin |
|sm@mail.com | max        | biagi     |      1    |   1   |

my code

}else if(isset($_POST['create_user'])) {

                    //Create new user
                    $usermeta = array();
                    $usermeta['first_name'] = ucfirst ($first_name);
                    $usermeta['last_name'] = ucfirst ($last_name); 
                    $usermeta['password'] = wp_hash_password( $email );
                    $user_login = strtok($email, '@');
                    $user_id = bp_core_signup_user( $user_login, $email, $email, $usermeta );

                    //Add user to group
                    groups_join_group($group_id, $user_id );

                    //Promote user to group moderator
                    //Promote user to group administrator

I only can store email. Is there another way to get that value from csv table

  • Your column names appear incorrect. first name and last name probably need underscores: first_name, last_name. Are the underscores missing in your actual CSV. Does changing this help? – Jacob Peattie Sep 19 '17 at 6:00
  • thank you but is not get the data. – Diana Rider Sep 19 '17 at 6:18


I change my code to wp_insert_user beside bp_core_user_signup

$user_id = wp_insert_user(array(
                            'user_login' => $user_login,
                            'user_pass' => wp_hash_password( $email ),
                            'first_name' => $first_name,
                            'last_name' => $last_name,
                            'display_name' => $first_name . ' ' . $last_name,
                            'user_email' => $email,
                            'user_nicename' => $first_name
