CSV Group Upload for Elgg 1.8

Create groups from CSV files

Last updated 770 days ago

Inspired by upload_users project by Jaakko Naakka (http://community.elgg.org/pg/plugins/release/165550/developer/naakka/upload-users)

This is an upgraded and slightly modified version of upload_users plugin by Jaakko Naakka from Mediamaisteri Group.

This plugin allows you to import CSV files and create new groups with any metadata specified in your CSV.

    I can get the group names in but not description, brief description and tags.

    I am using:

    name, Description, Brief description, tags

    but it only imports name into the fields.

    What should the file look like to bring the rest in?

    if you mess it up and want to delete all the groups do the following : Go to cpanle then phpmyadmin

    select your database where elgg is installed then find elgg_entities then look into the pages and only delete the object that says groups

    I have added an screenshot if needed.

    I was able to get it to read in my csv file of groups, however when I click the button "create groups", I then get this message:

    Form is missing __token or __ts fields

    Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?
