display profile fields in member header

    The goal is to display all xprofile data from users to the right of their avatar, with the clickable URL links still intact – the way it is under the user Profile page.

    I know this problem has been addressed in the past, but I cannot get this to work for the life of me. I followed this as a guide, with no success.

    I copied the single/member-header.php from the bp-templates/bp-legacy directory in to my child-theme.

    This is what my member-header file looks like right now:

    
    <?php
    		
    		 If you'd like to show specific profile fields here use:
    		 bp_profile_field_data( 'field=location' ); -- Pass the name of the field
    		 
    		 do_action( 'bp_profile_header_meta' );
    
    		 ?>
    

    The location field is a custom one that I made.

    I’m running the latest version of buddypress and using a child-theme of twentyfourteen.

    I appreciate any help.

    @cdb3212 As far as I understood your problem, there are two articles that would save your life if you had a chance of looking in the Codex. These are:

    http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/guides/displaying-extended-profile-fields-on-member-profiles/

    http://codex.buddypress.org/developer/function-examples/bp_profile_field_data/

    Take a look at those and try it out. =)

    Thank you for your help. I tried following that guide, but with no success. The changes I am making in my member-header file in my child theme are not being reflected on my site. I even went as far as deleting everything in the file and typing “abc” just to see what happens. Nothing changed.

    I was careful in copying the directory over in my child theme, but it just doesn’t seem to be overriding the default file.

    I needed to copy the bp-legacy directory, not the bp-default directory, correct?

    I added that code to my bp-custom file, no results. Which file do I add that code to?

    I appreciate your help.

    @cdb3212 As embarrassing as this might sound, I don’t know how Child Themes works exactly, but it seems there is a problem where you are putting it.

    Try using @barney92 suggestion, putting it in your functions.php file within your theme and see the result.

    I believe the OP wants the code in member-header, not in members directory.

    So pointing them to awkward code that isn’t relevant is not very helpful.

    The OP’s issue is with their template over-ride for member-header.php

    @cdb3212
    paste the path to your over-ride so we can see if it’s in the right place.

    Use https://gist.github.com/ to show us the current contents of that over-ride

    Arguments aside.

    I actually need the same thing would like to show Users full name above his @username and show State field and About/ bio field

    Have been reading the buddypress documentation with no luck and searching forums.

    @shanebp : public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyfourteen-child/single

    and then the member-header.php is included in the “single” folder.

    Here are the contents

    @barney92 , @shanebp is just trying to help, man. He didn’t call you out in particular. Can’t we all be friends?

    Thanks for pointing me to that.

    I’m still struggling though PHP aint my thing :(

    So the primary field “Name” and my other fields are called “State: and “Organization” and “Website” these are the field names I insert ?

    Heres where i put it..But doesnt show full member-header

    ` </div><!– #item-buttons –>

    <?php
    /***
    * If you’d like to show specific profile fields here use:
    * bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=About Me’ ); — Pass the name of the field
    */
    do_action( ‘bp_profile_header_meta’ ); // Here is one way you could add xprofile fields name as well as the value to the members directory!
    // Just remember to replace “Field-Name” with the names of your fields in the 5 variables in my code.
    // Also remember the field name is case sensitive. If you notice the pattern of 5 in my code you can
    // easily see how to add more fields if you need them. You can also use the div class bph_xprofile_fields
    // to adjust the CSS in your stylesheet. Place this code in bp-custom.php:
    add_action(‘bp_directory_members_item’, ‘bphelp_dpioml’);
    function bphelp_dpioml(){
    $bphelp_my_profile_field_1=’Name’;
    $bphelp_my_profile_field_2=’State’;
    $bphelp_my_profile_field_3=’Organisation’;
    $bphelp_my_profile_field_4=’Website’;
    $bphelp_my_profile_field_5=’About-you’;
    if( is_user_logged_in() && bp_is_members_component() ) { ?>
    <div class=”bph_xprofile_fields” style=” margin-left: 25%;”>
    <?php echo $bphelp_my_profile_field_1 ?>: <?php echo bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=’.$bphelp_my_profile_field_1 ); ?><br />
    <?php echo $bphelp_my_profile_field_2 ?>: <?php echo bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=’.$bphelp_my_profile_field_2 ); ?><br />
    <?php echo $bphelp_my_profile_field_3 ?>: <?php echo bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=’.$bphelp_my_profile_field_3 ); ?><br />
    <?php echo $bphelp_my_profile_field_4 ?>: <?php echo bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=’.$bphelp_my_profile_field_4 ); ?><br />
    <?php echo $bphelp_my_profile_field_5 ?>: <?php echo bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=’.$bphelp_my_profile_field_5 ); ?><br />
    </div><?php
    }
    }

    ?>’

    Ok
    After allot more research I found a solution. looks like I was putting your code in the wrong spot sure it would have worked as well @Barney

    I used this code

    <?php
       
      $state = bp_get_profile_field_data( 'field=State' ) ;
    echo '<p class="profile-fields">State: ' .$state. '</p>';
    ?>

    This displays my custom field state that i added via users > profile feeds in backend of wordpress

    I put this code under

    <span class="activity"><?php bp_last_activity( bp_displayed_user_id() ); ?></span>

    this is all in the members_header.php in the bp_legacy section

    @barney92 A final warning: Please do not resort to insulting forum members, it’s not to be tolerated.

    @barney92 Not really the best way of responding nor is having a ‘lousy week’ an excuse I’m afraid, lets just back off the forum until we are having a better week is generally the best approach.
