edit profile fields missing

    Searched endlessly without a clear answer. Don’t get why we can create endless profile custom profile fields but they’re totally inaccessible afterward. Clicking the “your profile” link in the backend brings up a page that has none of the custom fields and a ton of wordpress junk that we don’t even use.

    Think this should be more plug n play instead of requiring massive PHP editing. :(

    P.S. I found profile-wp.php and deleted out the fields in my custom template that I don’t want to display, but they still show up. LOST.

    They are accessed on the front-end on a member’s profile page.
    your-site.com/members/peteratomic/profile/

    >Clicking the “your profile” link in the backend brings up a page
    In the Dashboard, that link takes you to the DashBoard > User > Edit screen which is a standard WordPress screen.
    If you want to view and edit BuddyPress Extended Profile fields on that screen,
    then you might be interested in this premium plugin:

    Wow, so basically in order for members to have access to edit all of the fields that they entered while signing up, we have to pay for a custom plugin to get access to those fields?

    Utterly mind-boggling why this functionality isn’t built in to BP.

    Let me repeat:
    They are accessed on the front-end on a member’s profile page.
    your-site.com/members/peteratomic/profile/

    If it’s your profile or you are an admin, you will clearly see an ‘Edit’ button.

    It is built into BP.
