Importing users, any advice?

Discussion in 'XenForo Pre-Sales Questions' started by Tommy Bergeron, Feb 20, 2013.

  1. Hi,

    I'd love to use Xenforo for my gaming forum, but there's a few thing worrying me.

    I'll need to import users, I don't use any Xenforo-importable forum so all I have is a CSV file.

    I know that it doesn't support CSV import, so I'd need to know a few quick thing.

    1) Is it possible to request user to change their password? I'd like to import every users and when they try to log in it would ask for a new password (since my password are encrypted and I can't import them in Xenforo)

    2) What structure do Xenforo uses for users? Database-wise. I'd need to know where first name, last names, password, username, email goes. Any advice about this?

    That's all, I really wish I can get this to work!

    What forum software are you importing from?
  3. I was using esoTalk which is a very young and "not developed anymore" project.

    In xenForo, there's no esoTalk importer. It's a fork of GitHub, which I've been hearing a lot about lately.
