Hi Jerry Milo Johnson - thanks for responding ... yes i'm aware of
wp-cli however i've not yet used it ... and while this command does
most of what i want, http://wp-cli.org/commands/user/import-csv/, the
docs and example make no mention of whether said CSV file can add
users to a particular site and not just add users to the network ...
thus this command, http://wp-cli.org/commands/user/set-role/, seems to
allow that control (user and role assigned to a sub blog) but is one
at a time ... so what i was hoping to do is import a CSV that also
assigned those users to various sub sites ... accordingly, do you know
if this is possible with the import-csv command or would i have to
first import-csv, then one by one run the set-role (ugh) ... lastly,
have you ever set up shell scripts to run these command lines ..??..
thanks in advance for any pointers shared ... cordially, chuck scott
