Batch Create

When I import a spreadsheet of users with batch create, the sites created are in the wrong directory and I get an error message saying 'no input file specified'. Forinstance the main site on which I have multisite installed in when I use batch create it creates the site, example but misses out the 'wordpress' directory. When create sites via the add site function in WP, everything is fine. Please help ASAP because its driving me mad!!!!! Please - Regards Paul

    Greetings Paul,

    Welcome to WPMU Dev!

    Sorry to hear that you are having such an issue with this plugin and after looking over the instructions it appears that it is designed to create the sub sites, in this case, on the level of the root domain rather then a sub directory being sub directories themselves.

    Though I admit I do not know much about this plugin, if I were having this issue I would try adding the /wordpress/ in front of the folder name.

    With that said and admittedly I am not positive that it should not be run from an install in a sub folder, I will see if I can get the lead developer in here with his invaluable insight into this plugin for his advice/advise for us.

    Though this may take a bit longer then a normal ticket, I will try to get him in here asap.

    On a side note, it appears that your WordPress installation is several versions behind the current version though I honestly do not think that it is causing this issue. You should for other reasons update at your earliest convenience.

    I will see about getting the lead developer in here asap.

    Cheers, Joe

    I can help!!! I have made more mistakes with Batch Create then anyone i know. :disappointed:

    Honestly though i got it down to a science, if you want me to help i would love too! I also have a couple custom written plugins from another member "Maxaud" that goes nicely with this plugin.

    And yes it works wonderfully once you know how to set up the xls file to achieve what you want.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
