This component can import or migrate users from Excel / CSV file into:
  • Joomla. Supported fields: Id, Name, Username, Password, Email, Params, Register Date and Group(s).
  • NEW*: Joomla 3.7 Fields. You can create them using standard Joomla Fields feature.
  • JomSocial component. Any fields created in JomSocial, like Mobile, Skype, Social Security Number, etc.

Each imported user will be created as a regular Joomla and JomSocial user. So you will manage users as previously.
Please check the main features on video or screenshots below to see how JomSocial Import works.

The main features of "Import Users into JomSocial" product are:
  • Add/create only new users, update existing users or do both at the same time.
  • Password type option. You can specify type of password in your file: plain (non-encrypted) and Joomla encrypted.
  • Auto-generation of user password. If there are no passwords in your file, our "Import" will generate passwords automatically for new users.
  • Block non-existent users in excel/csv. Each user who is not mentioned in your file can be blocked on your website.
  • Send "Welcome" email to new imported users. You can email newly imported users and send them their logins/passwords. This may come useful when JomSocial User Import generates passwords for new users.
  • Profiles feature. If you're planning to import users frequently then specify import settings and save them into Profile. Afterwards you can begin to import by single click at a desired Profile. You can create as many Profiles as needed (e.g. for different file formats).
  • Manage/limit access to "Import Users" component. Do you want to grant/limit access to this component for certain users groups ? - Use "Permissions" settings.
  • High-loaded version is available. Standard version of import is designed for importing up to 5 000 users and optimized version - for huge files up to 100 000 users.
  • Columns order, in file, is not essential.

  • NEW*: Import multiple dropdown values. To import multiple values, please make sure that they have next format - "coffee,tea,water," in your file (this format is required by JomSocial).

**Extra Feature: Import on schedule (using Cron) is available in special edition. This feature is useful when there is a need to import each half an hour/hour/day, etc. Please contact us for more details.

  • To find out the reason why some users can’t be imported - you just need to hover your mouse over the user in tab “Won’t be imported”.

  • Our extension is using standard Joomla functions to send emails, so actually we don't have much control on this process. Import extensions just gives email to Joomla and if Joomla's and Server's mail configurations are correct - email will be sent to inbox.

    So if users don't receive emails the problem might be in:

    1. Incorrect Joomla email configuration - ask your developer to check it out.
    2. Problems with mail service on the server - ask your system administrator to check it out.
    3. Some emails comes to spam/junk folder - ask user to check these folders too.
  • Our extension is using standard Joomla functions to send emails, so actually we don't have much control on this process.

    This issue is based on a few factors, which can be fixed/changed by server administrator and domain owner.

    1. Correct mail server configuration
    2. Server's IP might be black listed, you can check it here:
    3. You can use DKIM, SPF, DMARC to make your domains valid for mass mailing
    4. Keep valid reverse DNS records for the IP address(es).
  • Maximum file upload size is a global PHP setting (called upload_max_filesize), you need to increase this value. Most hosting providers allows to change this setting in your Hosting Control Panel. Also you can ask your system administrator or developer to change it.

  • You need to send email to us and provide us with details:

    1. How to reproduce bug
    2. Screenshots of bug
    3. Best way to describe the problem is to create video (you can use software like Jing)

    If you subscribed to support, you can count on fast update (1-2 work days)
