How can I add new user from php code? Normally member data are set by calling $form->saveinto($obj). What is the other way to fill member obejct? I have users in file (csv) and I don't know how to do this.

Thx for any help

You will need to write PHP to import this for the moment, or SQL, or use the newsletter import and migrate people over as members.

I've added a feature request for what you want, tho:

You can create members in PHP by going $member = new Member(); then to save the member you just need to call write() on it to write it to the database.

As for the csv import tool you should look on the net for example code but the SS specific stuff is pretty easy.

$member = new Member();
$member->FirstName = "First Name Here";
$member->Surname = "Surname";
// ... you can do Email, or any other fields on member
$member->write(); // save the member
