Displaying profile field name in Member Loop

    I am trying to display the actual field name alongside the field in the member profile loop.

    I’ve used the following code to display the field:

    <?php bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=cancer type’ ); ?>

    Now I need to display the actual field name.  Can someone provide help with that?  One of our profile fields is Type of Cancer, but now all you see is “Breast” rather than Type of Cancer: Breast.

    Any thoughts?

    Why not simply do something like this?

    `<p>Type of Cancer: <?php bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=cancer type’ ); ?> </p>`

    I copy pasted this code and it blanked out my page.  Could I be doing something wrong?

    I retyped it and it’s working.  I don’t know what was happening.  It went sort of wonky for a moment!

    Thanks so much for your help!

    One more question.  Is there a way to make the Type of Cancer portion bold so it stands out?

    Surround Type of Cancer with opening `` and closing ``

    That worked!  Thanks so much.  Are text colors able to be affected here or no?  I’m thinking that it is still a little hard to distinguish so I’m wondering if I can make the field a gray.

    I really appreciate your help and quick response.

    You can add inline style like `<p style=”color: #ccc;”>` or better yet, add a class `<p class=”crfield”>` then add p.crfield { color: #ccc} to your theme’s style.css file

    Great!  That worked perfectly.  I did the first option.  However, it moved the field to the next line.

    Is there a way to keep this from happening?  There is tons of space and it doesn’t need to be moved.

     

    This is how I set up the code:

    <p><strong>Type of Cancer: </strong><p style=”color: #736B6E;”><?php bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=Cancer Type’ ); ?></p>

    p means paragraph, so it’s normal you have two lines instead one.

    Use span inside p

    <p><strong>Type of Cancer:&nbsp;</strong><span style=”color: #736B6E;”></span>&nbsp;<?php bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=Cancer Type’ ); ?></p>

    nbsp is a white space

    Thanks.  That appears to have helped with the line breaks but the color switched back to black.  Is there any way to get the color to change from here?
