Featured members: possible to show fewer details?

    My installation is showing way too much detail about featured members … and random information at that! I’d like to have only the names of the featured members showing, not entire blocks of autobiography or other information. Just the name of the member, please! Any ideas? TIA!

    Where did you get this Featured Members widget version? It does not look like mine.

    My Featured Members widget only show’s avatar and name. You can find it here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-featured-members-widget/

    Uh, this is the widget that comes with BuddyPress … I have not installed any member widgets from any other source … !

    I do not see any BuddyPress widgets entitled “Featured Members” in my v1.0 install of BP. Are you using a version newer than v1.0 from trunk?

    Either way, the widget I linked you to will solve your problem.

    Okay, I’ve made a mistake. I did not even notice that you had linked to the members’ theme, not the home theme.

    My widget is for the home them. What you’re asking about is not a widget. It is a coded into the /directories/members/index.php file in the bphome theme.

    You can make your own custom theme, edit this out, and get what you want:

    <div class="item-meta"><span class="activity"><?php bp_the_site_member_last_active() ?></span></div>

    <div class="field-data">
    <div class="field-name"><?php bp_the_site_member_total_friend_count() ?></div>
    <div class="field-name xprofile-data"><?php bp_the_site_member_random_profile_data() ?></div>
    </div>

    Just make sure to place your custom theme in the proper place and then select it in WPMU’s backend via “BuddyPress > General Settings > Select theme to use for BuddyPress generated pages”

    I don’t want to create a new theme, just modify the files so that these featured member profiles don’t show. Are your instructions to show me how to do that? I hope so!

    TIA!

    The theme where this is located is in bpmember, not bphome. I’m just not firing on all cylinders today.

    Are your instructions to show me how to do that?

    Yes, you can make these edits in the bpmember theme directly. Just make sure that you have a backup before changing.

    Also, please realize, that if you alter the standard themes and do not rename them, then the next you upgrade BuddyPress, you will lose your theme changes if you copy over the default themes.

    Thanks, Jeff. I assume renaming the theme is simply changing the name of its folder?

    That is correct. Make a copy of the bpmember theme, rename your copy, make whatever changes you want to it, and you have–in effect–a custom theme! Just make sure you keep your new theme in the /wp-content/bp-themes/ directory.

    Once ready for use, log into WPMU’s backend and navigate to “BuddyPress > General Settings > Select theme to use for BuddyPress generated pages”. You should see your newly-named theme as an option in the dropdown box. Select it, save, and you’re ready to go.

    It’s worth doing and it is easy.
