I’ve just enabled a new and powerful plugin for batch-adding users to a blog. It’s much simpler than the previous one, and only requires the email addresses for people to be added to your site.

On any of your UCalgaryBlogs.ca sites, just go to the Dashboard, and open the Tools section. There, you’ll find an item called “Import Users”. All you need to do is enter the email addresses of the people to be imported, one address per line, and then select the role to be used for the users on that site. Click the “Import Users” button, and the users will be added to the site. If they don’t have accounts at UCalgaryBlogs.ca, one will be created automatically for them. They will receive an email containing their login information, and the address of the site.

Thanks to Boone Gorges for developing the new plugin!
