Problems Uploading users

Following the instructions on the "import users" page, I created a .csv file with the requested info. When I try to upload it, I get the message:
Import cannot proceed, as the submitted file has a MIME-TYPE of application/octet-stream, and as such does not appear to be a CSV file.

I created this .csv file in Libreoffice 6 . What have I done wrong?

  • Hello, that is very odd. Would you mind sharing a copy of this file, with only the first two rows, to support@gibbonedu.org and we will test it for you? Thanks! Ross.

    In the meantime, it might be worth checking out @sandra's Data Admin module from our Extend page (https://gibbonedu.org/extend/). This offers a far nicer way to import users and other data. In fact, these import functions are so nice that they are being rolled into the core in v17 in place of the function you are currently using. v17 will be released on 20/01/2019.

    Thanks,

    Ross

    Thank you for the tip about the Data Admin Module, I have now begun uploading users. I think I deleted the old file I tried to upload, sorry.
