    What does this option actually do? I’d like to know a little more about it if anyone has some info…

    It is found under Settings > BuddyPress > Profile Settings

    It’s blog posts to stream isn’t it, tracks your sites posts.

    It syncs your MS sites or so I thought, but I may well be wrong.

    Spent the last 30 minutes doing some digging and found an old thread with a detailed explanation from Boone:

    http://buddypress.org/support/topic/please-help-me-understand-a-wordpressbp-feature/#post-97470

    As far as I can tell, two functions perform the ‘syncing’ of data

    xprofile_sync_wp_profile()

    Syncs Xprofile data (nickname, first name and last name) to the standard built in WordPress profile data

    xprofile_sync_bp_profile()

    Syncs the standard built in WordPress profile data to XProfile

    That’s about it. Nothing exciting really, just two nice little housekeeping functions

    ah hmm yes, so I was a little wrong :) should have known this, just goes to show… did some work a while back mapping custom tables across to user tables then matching to bp profiles, probably missed these functions at the time.

    Hey guys,

    I found your thread and thought you guys may have a similar issue as I’m having as it relates to buddypress and registration. Was wondering if you are encountering this:

    bbPress (2.5.3) seems to completely ignore what the user had originally set as their password on my registration page from the very beginning of registration.

    More detailed explanation:
    On the registration page, the user chooses their own password, and then once approved, the user is then sent an automated registration message which then assigns the user a new random password. The user then has to log in using this random password and reset the password.

    Have you encountered this? Any solutions?

    thank you,
    Matt
