Filter Buddypress Page Titles and extended profiles
Buddypress version: 1.7.2
WordPress version: 3.5.1
Theme Framework: Genesis v1.9.2 custom theme
Development URL: http://creativeconundrum.com/kristen2
During the past 2 days, I’ve uninstalled BP Compatibility Pack and re-worked my site to use the built-in compatibility for my Genesis Custom Theme. Aside from having to re-write a lot of CSS to make thinks look as good as they used to, everything is working great, Wishlist Member and all … although I don’t have that many plugins installed. (smile)
Aside from CSS re-work (ugh!), the only core customization that I have in place is what I posted to this thread:
The template modifications were done by moving the template files from bp-legacy to my child theme folder, as was recommended to do by this site.
I noticed that the page titles changed in this process and this seems to be a core buddypress title that is displayed. For example, when the BP Compatibility Plugin was enabled, the Members page had a title of “Members Directory. Now it just says “Members” and I liked the idea of it being a Directory. Yes, I could rename the page title for the menu but when folks get to the page itself, it will still say just “Members.” Genesis has many filters for modifying these sorts of things so you won’t have to change the code. Does Buddypress?
Is there a hook/filter that I can use to change these default titles?
Another thing that I noticed is that there is a new button to the left of the title for creating a group. What is the intention of this button? It seems redundant, since a user is already being walked through the group creation process. Is it safe to remove that button?
Lastly, while the extended profile feature gives user control to what is visible, the default is “anyboday” and I don’t know where that is set or how to change it. I’d like it to be set to private and allow the member to choose what is public and to whom because, on this site, we are capturing a lot of extra information after their registration is approved and people are sensitive.
Additionally, this form itself is not very pretty when you have a lot of fields on it. Have you ever heard of anyone using Gravity forms to improve the styling & layout? Is it possible to “hook” into the profile update features via Gravity Forms with the User Registration addon and keep the visibility options available to the user? I have asked this of Gravity Forms through a priority support ticket and they came back with a “we need to escalate this” sort of answer so I thought I would look here for tips and advice.
Whew! Sorry for the tome…
