How to add users before site launch

  • smithcreate


    I’m about to launch a website for a club which will use bbPress as their online forum. Is there a way I can add current club members to WordPress and assign their roles before I launch the website? My thought is that the site will generate emails to these users, but the link will go to localhost. I’m trying to minimize downtime with the site launch. My only thoughts are to add users after the website is launched, which will then link to the production URL. Any thoughts or tutorials on this?

    interesting question – bbpress will add the default role you set in forums settings, so if you set this to participant this would sort the majority of users out from a forum perspective.

    Which then makes this more of a wordpress question – in essence you could set up the users manually and click to not send them emails, so they would be on the live site when you transfer, but then of course they wouldn’t know their password, so it is a bit of a catch 22 !
